The more we learn about the Manti Te’o hoax, the more we come to realize that the Notre Dame linebacker was not the first person that became a pawn in the games Ronaiah Tuiasosopo has allegedly strung together. Tessi Tolutau, a Hawaiian beauty queen who was crowned Miss South Pacific in 2007, said she was also contacted by a girl named Lennay Kekua several years ago.

Tolutau told the NY Post that Kekua messaged her on Facebook seeking advice on competing in a beauty pageant. She also reportedly told Tolutau that she had an impressive track record, including once dating Mark Sanchez.

“We would chat back and forth,” Tolutau said. “She explained to me that she played basketball at Stanford, that she was a Victoria’s Secret model, that she was dating somebody from Stanford. She even said she was dating [Jets quarterback] Mark Sanchez.”

Tolutau said she was shocked last week when news surfaced that Te’o's girlfriend never actually existed.

“I didn’t even know that Manti’s dead girlfriend was Lennay Kekua until I saw the news this week,” she said.

In this case, Ronaiah may have posed as Kekua to give himself an opportunity to meet Tolutau, who explained that Kekua convinced her that she should meet Tuiasosopo. However, Tolutau said never considered that Kekua and Tuiasosopo could be one in the same.

“I never thought that before,” she explained. “That never crossed my mind. When Ronaiah’s name came out, I started to put the pieces together.”

With all the lies we have been led to believe that Tuiasosopo has told (like this classic story about NBC’s “The Voice”), it sounds like he is an extremely sick person who is in need of some serious help.
