Thoughts from the Pageant World about JHBOnline.net...

Paula Shugart, President
Miss Universe Organization

Hello John-

I was happy to see your email.  I actually wrote back to you right after
the Miss California USA pageant, and the emails came back as
undeliverable.  I hope this makes it to you.

After I got your original email, I went to your website and I must say,
you are quite an inspiration.

I hope all is well.

Paula Shugart
(President of The Miss Universe Organization)

Hi! This is Dottie Cannon - I met you and your mom at the 2004 Miss USA pageant in Los Angeles, CA. I was there with my friend, Jessica Billings, all the way from Minnesota. We sat by you during the Preliminary competition - how much fun was that?!?!

I wanted to let you know that I still love receiving your updates. Also, I decided to compete in the Miss USA pageant this year (again!) and I won! I am so excited about this opportunity and cannot wait for Nationals - hopefully I will see you there! You are probably at the Miss America competition now, so enjoy and have fun!

Have a great day and I hope you are enjoying the new year!

Take care,
Dottie Cannon

It was wonderful to see you and your mom at the pageant - long time no see! Please tell your mom it was great to see her - she looks the same. I was honored to be named Miss Congeniality too! It was disappointing that I did not place higher, but the experience was still eye-opening.


#MissUSA Just received this beautiful autograph card from Jessica Billings Miss PA-USA 2013! Jessica, it has been by honor to accompany you on this amazing journey... I know you have a great future... I hope we'll always be friends! XOXO, John JHBonline.net

Not sure if I've ever had the pleasure of formally meeting you. Every time I see you at an MUO event you are surrounded by tons of people who adore you!! And, I always hear such wonderful things about you. Thank you for being who you are; it's obvious to me why you are loved by so many in the pageant world especially--your genuine support and contagious personality is certainly appreciated. : )

Take care and glad we can be friends!

John! You are the best! Thank you so much for finding me on this silly network! lol. It was so great to see you in Palm Springs as well. I will never forget my Miss USA experience on the night when we all came back from some event at about 10:30 and it was time with family and friends.....my family and friends weren't present (even though they are all from California-lol). I was on my way to the elevator when all of the girls were running to have family and friends time. On my way, I ran into you and your mom. I ended up staying there and chatting with you guys during that time:). It really made me feel great because I didn't have anyone there. You two were my family and friends that evening and now...ALWAYS! Thank you so, SO very much! That really meant a lot to me :). I will never forget it. I love you guys :)! I'll see you in Vegas :)! I know your coming for Miss USA right???? lol.
