Subject: My Miss Texas USA 2015 Final Prediction

Road To Miss USA 2015
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 18:15:19 08/26/14 Tue

Hello, since I can't create an account here, I decided that on this name, I will share my final predictions for the Miss USA state pageants this year. It's state pageant season, my favorite time of year and we will begin with my final predictions for Miss Texas USA 2015! I will also try to update on the contestants that I know are competing in upcoming state pageants and my predictions for the national pageant every month. So here are my predictions for Miss Texas USA 2015

Miss Texas USA 2015 - Miss Tropics of Texas USA, Ylianna Guerra

She has a very beautiful face and it would be very refreshing to see Texas crown a girl like her. She looks like a delegate Puerto Rico would send to Miss Universe. If she wins, she will be an instant favorite. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that she wins.

1st Runner Up - Miss North Texas USA, Tahnae Tarkenton

I believe this is her final year so I think she will finish high, I read Oz’s interview with her and I think she deserves to go to the nationals. Her beauty reminds me a bit of Morgan Woolard. She will be a threat if she goes to Miss USA and could be the 1st blonde in the Top 5 since 2012! However, Ylianna and Jordan are competing this year so she still has to fight.

2nd Runner Up - Miss Metroplex USA, Jordan Schultz

I'm not really sure of what all the hype about this girl is, but she has an interesting face and I expect her to do well. I think this is Ylianna's year, but I think Jordan's time will be soon. Just not this year.

3rd Runner Up - Miss Lubbock USA, Siria Bojorquez

A pageant veteran who has done well internationally, I believe she won't win, but will do well here. She reminds me of Alexia Viruez, Miss Bolivia Universe 2013 which I think could be an advantage or disadvantage

4th Runner Up - Miss DFW USA, Christina Entsminger

Christina has to be in the Top 5 already! She's a stunning blonde and even though this year is very competitive, I have my hopes for her and I'm praying she does well.

Top 10

6. Miss Houston USA, Ligia De Uriarte

This Latina is on fire, she is aiming for a Top 5 placement and I won't be surprised if she reaches the Top 5, I don't see her winning though.

7. Miss Kemah USA, Kenda Carroll

Her body is banging with a very striking face, she will be very hard to ignore.

8. Miss Capital of Texas USA, Ciara Jasso

One of the best faces in the competition, I'm ranking her low because I don't know how she will do in Miss and I need to see more. But she is definitely a possible winner based on the headshot.

9. Miss Bay Area USA, Peyton Saverance

She's approaching the age limit and she might win, but I think that there are better options for Texas, she is facially weak, but we'll see. I'm just not a fan.

10. Miss Harris County USA, Logan Lester

She's beautiful and has a banging body but too pageant patty and teeny for me.

Top 16

11. Miss South Texas USA, Alejandra Gonzalez

She's beautiful and I know she made Top 5 last year, but I think there are better options this year

12. Miss Lone Star USA, Brianna Webb

Best black beauty of the year. She might make Top 5!

13. Miss Galveston County USA, Lauren Adkins

Blonde and beautiful but a little common, I think she could make Top 5 or even win though!

14. Miss Dallas USA, Lauren Kennewell

Her headshot is stunning, but her candids aren't as good, lets see how she is in motion

15. Miss Helotes USA, Chaney Shadrock

Very naturally beautiful, reminds me of Courtney Turner

16. Miss Fort Worth USA, Katie Sicula

Her headshot is stunning and she placed 1st runner up in Miss Dallas so she will be one to watch.

Bubbling Up

17. Miss Clear Lake USA, Alexandra Nini
18. Miss Austin USA, Melissa Novak
19. Miss Eagle Mountain USA, Haley Spathias
20. Miss Vidor USA, Kourtney Magnes

Also Strong Possibilities

21. Miss Longview USA, Andrea Fox
22. Miss North Bexar County USA, Alayah Benavidez
23. Miss Central Texas USA, Annaka Chesnutt
24. Miss Memorial USA, Courtney Newman
25. Miss El Paso USA, Victoria Sinclair

Dark Horses

26. Miss Bexar County USA, Isabella Radovan
27. Miss West University USA, Jenny Smith
28. Miss Deer Park USA, Danielle Bosley
29. Miss Southeast Texas USA, Brianna Key
30. Miss Corpus Christi USA, Ariel Monte

I don't know how to post photos or make an account here, but if someone could let me know how to, that would be great! Stay tuned for more predictions throughout the state pageant season!

Up Next...Miss Illinois USA

This was absolutely horrific. I'm completely mortified at the awfulness of this pageant. Is this really how it used to be?? ROFL.

Please let me know if this made you as creepily uncomfortable as it made me! Simply horrible!

Nevertheless, Wyoming was quite beautiful! Interesting that Miss Teen USA back then was crowned in January, so she was crowned by Miss USA 1984 Mai Shanley, and Miss Universe 1984 Yvonne Ryding.

Subject: What's your burning pageant question?

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 20:17:18 08/24/14 Sun

If you could ask any question and have a pageant mystery cleared up, what would you ask?

One that has always bugged me is, "Why was Ashley Zais (SC, 2007) eliminated after the swimsuit round?" She was a big favorite and seemed to perform well. That never made sense.

My other question is, "Whatever happened to Amanda Jones, Miss USA 1973"? Would love to know where she is now.

Your turn...

Subject: Illinois contestants up!!!!

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 20:33:24 08/25/14 Mon

Illinois has 62 Miss contestants this year! I guessed it might be about that... a nice balance between the usual Vanbros number and the super high number IL used to get :) Sorry for not posting the Teens too, here's the link for both...


Update: my review is up!!!


No returning IL runners-up but one former Teen & two from other states. You can read my interview with Gina here http://www.pageantupdate.info/interviews/ginamelchiorri.htm and I'm hoping to have an interview with Emily Bey up before the pageant! A number of semi-finalists are back though, read my rundown for the list :)

Katie Cunningham, Gina Melchiorri, Amanda Signorelli, Emily Bey, Ashley Reid, Hannah Butler, Gemma Berto, Rayni Lasley, Quini Amma

Stacie Juris' sister is competing in Teen, as is last year's 4RU and six semi-finalists:

Jodie Juris, Hannah Cohn, Katelyn Baughman, Emily Deichmann, Madeline Flynn, Emily Lymberopoulos, Madison Mueller, Alexia Vigue, Allison Caulk

Subject: Both pageants are webcast this weekend!!!

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 21:12:50 08/27/14 Wed

Both Illinois & Texas will be webcast this weekend... the only downside is that they're both on PageantVision.com and they've upped the prices this year, $18 for each Texas show & $20 for Illinois. Since Illinois has been broken into a Miss & Teen show for both prelims & finals... well unless you have a stash of disposable cash it's not going to be practical to watch everything :( I don't mind paying for webcasts but I do think the prices they're charging are WAY too steep.

Regardless, here's when everything's on, whether you're planning to watch any online or not this will probably be helpful...

Friday 29th
8pm CDT - Illinois Teen prelims

Saturday 30th
7.30pm CDT - Texas USA prelims
8.30pm CDT - Illinois USA prelims

Sunday 31st
1pm CDT - Texas USA finals

Monday 1st
2pm CDT - Illinois Teen finals
7pm CDT - Illinois USA finals

I was watching old Miss USA pageant videos, and this one just struck a chord.

At the time, I was pretty indifferent to her answer, but watching it over again 17 years later, Brook's answer really made me think.

At 26 years old, you really have to have a solid inner strength to give an answer like this, and it's no wonder why she won.

I slightly teared up hearing this answer, and the fact that Trump claimed that she was being "politically correct" at the time, makes me love her even more.

The other two ladies' answers really paled in comparison to this. Her response was simply amazing.

*** post edited ***

I had to add these clips because I wanted to highlight that her win wasn't just a fluke. Brook proved that she really had the depth to be Miss Universe.

In this video, she just made me smile. Not very many contestants have ever been asked to sing on-stage (Wendy F. is the only other one I can think of), yet she just went for it.

Then I had to include her Miss Universe top 3 interview, because it basically sealed the deal for her. Marena's answer was just plain boring. In fact, she bored me all night long. And Margot's answer was "outrageous," but then she felt the need to explain herself, which dug her into a hole.

Brook's answer was short, sweet, and simple. And completely outrageous. Her ability to be spontaneous and funny and charming is what won her the crown. Hands down.

If you think about it, this answer was really perfect for the question. And that doesn't happen by accident. People are saying that Brook's question was "easy," but a question like "if you could be outrageous for one day, what would you do?" is SO wide open, that you could literally say anything.

Someone like Lara Dutta is really intelligent, but could she have answered a question like this in a fun and spontaneous way, like Brook did? I honestly don't think so. I think that Spain or Venezuela might have beaten her.

The fact is, you answer the question you're given in the best way possible. Brook proved that she could answer both hardball (weight issues) and softball (if you could be outrageous) questions, equally. And truthfully, that is not an easy accomplishment.
