Name: Carrie Prejean
Pageant Year:Miss USA 2009
Scandal: Prejean offended plenty with her comments about gay marriage, bashing same-sex marriage and incurring the wrath of everyone from Perez Hilton to activists. Donald Trump, who owns most of the Miss Universe Organization, came to her defense, but not even he could help her out when a topless photo of her was leaked. In the end, her Miss California USA 2009 crown was yanked.
Complex says: Beauty queens say the darndest things.
