Mariah Billado, Miss Vermont 1997: Trump Walked In On Half-Naked Miss Teen USA Contestants [Video]

Mariah Billado can be seen in the below YouTube video, about four minutes and 31 seconds into the video. Billado’s name is making the rounds on Wednesday, October 12, because of the accusations that Mariah has leveled against Donald Trump, along with Trump’s alleged actions that Billado says Trump performed when the Miss Vermont 1997 who is Billado competed in Trump’s Miss USA pageant.

Billado’s accusations against Trump are shocking indeed, according to BuzzFeed News.

Warning: The below audio containing Trump speaking with Howard Stern might be offensive to some listeners.

Trump can be heard in the below CNN audio speaking with Stern about the beauty contests Trump owned and the fact that Trump wouldn’t comment on whether or not Trump had sex with any of his beauty pageant contestants. Trump was promoting his Miss USA contest when Trump spoke with Howard about walking in on Miss USA beauty contestants while they were dressing. As owner of the pageants, Trump bragged to Stern about the access that Trump had backstage, unlike any other man, to walk in on women when they were naked.

“I’ll tell you the funniest is that I’ll go backstage before a show and everyone’s getting dressed. No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. … ‘Is everyone OK?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

Trump can be heard saying he’d go backstage before a show — with claims that Trump was inspecting the show — in the below audio.

Also as heard in the following audio by CNN, Trump spoke in the following interview with Stern about Ivanka Trump and whether or not Ivanka got breast implants. Trump denied Howard’s query that Ivanka got breast implants and Donald praised his daughter for being smart.

Mariah, meanwhile, was one of four females from the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant who told BuzzFeed that Trump came in the dressing room when Billado and other teenagers were changing. According to the publication, some of the Miss USA women were as young as 15 years of age when Trump walked in on the half-naked teens, although the 15-year-old was fully clothed.

Mariah spoke of her love of the outdoors in the above video. Billado said she loved rock-climbing, canoeing, hiking, and anything that involved the outdoors. Mariah’s scores, as seen in the above video, show Billado garnered a 7.97 score for Mariah’s interview results, an 8.10 for Mariah’s swimsuit score and an 8.00 for Billado’s evening gown score.


Beyond Billado’s scores in 1997 are the words that Mariah is speaking in 2016 about Trump’s alleged behavior that year when Billado was a contestant.

“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my God, there’s a man in here.’ I remember it shocking me. I barely let anybody except my sister see me getting dressed.”

Mariah claims that Trump’s attitude toward walking in on a half-naked Billado and other teens included Trump brushing off his behavior about walking in on the half-dressed females.

“Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”

Meanwhile, Billado was one of four women who spoke about Trump’s alleged actions the year that Mariah competed.

Besides Billado, three other women spoke with BuzzFeed, but Mariah was the only one who wasn’t afraid of the media onslaught that would follow Billado’s comments about Trump. However, BuzzFeed reports that two women besides Mariah also described how they covered their nakedness when Trump entered the room, with one of the women (not Mariah) calling Trump’s alleged actions “shocking” and “creepy.”

Other contestants don’t remember Trump entering the room with some claiming Trump could not have been there.

Billado participated in the 1997 teen pageant, which was the first time Trump owned the contest, which took place on South Padre Island, Texas.

Mariah said she doesn’t support Trump or Clinton, with Billado claiming she spoke with 15-year-old Ivanka who hosted the pageant and told her about Trump’s alleged actions.

“Billado said she told Ivanka about Donald Trump entering the room while the girls were changing their clothes. Billado remembers Ivanka answering, ‘Yeah, he does that.'”
