Donald Trump fixes part of the Miss Universe pageant to make sure the prettiest girls don't get cut too soon, the competition's choreographer tells Guanabee. "It’s just kind of common knowledge that he picks six of the top 15 single-handedly," says Michael Schwandt. Before the show, The Donald has all the girls lined up, in alphabetical order, looks them over, and has an assistant take notes.
"It’s a lot of work to get these girls that don’t speak English in alphabetical order," Schwandt notes. "It’s kind of the last thing anybody wants to do but we have to do it." Why? "His reason for doing so, as he told me and he’s told the girls before, is that he left it all up to preliminary judging in the past and some of the most beautiful women, in his opinion, were not in the top 15 and he was kind of upset about that. And he decided that he would pick a certain number and let the judges pick a certain number."
