Tina Marie Machado has lost her Miss Hawaii USA crown after less than a week. Pageant officials said she is too old at 25 and won by mistake. Machado was told Tuesday to step down in favor of Toni Leimomi Costa, 18, runner-up in the pageant last week. Pageant director Gay Zuercher said Miss Hawaii USA entrants must be under 25 and it was an error when Machado--who turned 25 in November--was allowed to enter.
