It's kind of weird; you have to actually change the year in the address bar to "2019" in order to see the contestants.

28 in Miss (a few more than last year);

What pageant hairstyles do you especially remember, good or bad? Here are some of mine.

- Miss Zaire, at Miss Universe 1985 ("Olympic Rings") Normally I am not a fan of unusual, one-of-a-kind hairstyles, but for some reason I really liked this. Certainly the most memorable hairdo at MU that I can think of.

- Miss Delaware, Renee Bull, at Miss USA 2015 ("Epcot Center Bun") Another hairstyle that I usually don't like, but I thought it looked great on her.

- Miss Russia, Oxana Fedorova, at Miss Universe 2002 ("Morticia Addams") I don't get this at all. I know everyone loves Oxana, but I couldn't even get past her hair. I think straight hair can look great (e.g., Shandi at MUSA and MU 2004) but the completely flat, limp look just never works for me.

- Susie Castillo at Miss USA 2003 ("Megacurls"). I loved the curls. To me, she was just a breath of fresh air.

- Kasi Fennell, Miss Jamaica, at Miss Universe 2014 ("Pixie Cut") This is one case where short hair looked so perfect. I thought, why would anyone ever do anything else? LOL.

Which hairstyles stand out in your memory?

Miss Universe 2018 to be held in Bangkok
national August 01, 2018 01:00 By The Nation
The Miss Universe pageant is heading back to Thailand for the third time, in a spectacular event in Bangkok that is expected to give a multi-million baht boost to the country’s tourism industry.

Paula Mary Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organisation, confirmed at a press conference in Bangkok yesterday that the pageant will be held in Thailand again, on December 17.
Last year, the contest was held in Las Vegas in the US and in 2016 it was held in the Philippines.
“Sawasdi kha [good afternoon],” Shagart greeted the audience in Thai.
“I’d like to thank the Minister of Tourism and Sports Weerasak Kowsurat and the Thai government for allowing the Miss Universe Organisation to host the pageant contest in Thailand again.

1) Spain - Angela Ponce has made history as the 1st transgender to compete at Miss Universe.
2) Great Britain - Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers is the 1st black woman to represent Great Britain at Miss Universe. She's also an accomplished athlete at the 2014 Commonwealth games.
3) Australia - Francesca Hung - 1st Chinese contestant to represent Australia.
4) El Salvador - Marisela de Montecristo - A previous winner of Univision's popular Nuestra Belleza contest . Marisela has a huge fan base, around latin America.
5) Panama -Rosa Montezuma, She spoke this week at the United Nations about indigenous rights. She's been spotted in NYC, wearing traditional native dress.
6) Philippines - Catriona Gray, perhaps one of the most beautiful contestant competing this year, she's been declared the front-runner from day 1.
7) USA - Sarah Rose Summers - It so rare these day for the United States to send a striking blond to Miss Universe, and has a charming personality.
8) South Africa- Tamaryn Green - Another stunner from SA, some say even better than last year's winner.

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is “proud” of new beau Tim Tebow.

Speaking on South Africa’s 947 Breakfast Club Wednesday, recognizing Nelson Mandela Day, 2017’s Miss Universe subtly confirmed her relationship with the Mets prospect, without dropping his name.

“There’s somebody. Anele, I’m sure you will definitely approve of him,” Nel-Peters, 23, said, via SportsGossip.com. “He’s very special and just such a big blessing in my life. He’s currently a baseball player and a former NFL player … look at all those titles I just dropped. I’m very proud.”

Tebow, 30, also told ESPN he and the South African native were an item earlier this week. Terez Owens first reported the coupling.

“She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” Tebow said. “I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful.”

Nel-Peters is said to have split from boyfriend Geo Botha before becoming an item with Tebow. She also spoke about their initial meeting.

“I don’t know if you know, but I have a half sister who was born with a disability and his foundation [The Tim Tebow Foundation] works very closely with children with disabilities,” she said. “They have an event each year called ‘Night to Shine’ and they host them each year in churches and in different countries and he invited me and my family. We started talking and we kinda haven’t stopped.”

Tebow’s siblings were the first to post pictures of the new couple on Instagram.

It has been slow on this board, so I’ll propose this fun question. In the Miss America program, the contestants are divided into three separate groups and compete in a different category each of the three nights of competition. What do you think if MUO was to divide the contestants into two separate groups (or three in the case of Miss Universe) and presents preliminary awards in swimsuit and evening gown each evening. Would this approach be something you would be in favor or oppose to?

(CNN)The next edition of the Miss America pageant will scrap swimsuits and will be more inclusive to women of all sizes, the contest announced Tuesday.

Gretchen Carlson, the chairwoman of the Miss America board of directors, announced on "Good Morning America" that the event will no longer feature a swimsuit competition.
Miss America will be a competition, not a pageant, Carlson said on the show Tuesday.
"We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance. That's huge," she said.
Carlson also said the new Miss America competition will be more inclusive to women of "all shapes and sizes."

Who's everyone's favorite final walks? Some of mine are Erin Brady (so classy and seemed to love her reign ) Bridgette Wilson ( I loved her bubbly attitude and I even got teary eyed myself when she was wiping her tears), and Carole Gist (I loved her walk under the swords.)

I like the opening with old home home videos of the girls, and then boom! straight to the intros.

SC appears in a lot of pre recorded segments, so I think MUO were plugging her to be in the Top 15 at least.

Carson and Lu are alright with their color commentary. I get that they have their favorite delegates but oh, let the other one finish talking before interjecting.

I like the hosts, and I don't mind them returning next year. I trust they are done plugging Vanessa as a former Miss Teen USA.

I like the stage setup and graphics, especially during 98 Degrees' performance. Not as grand as what we've seen previously but different enough.

I like Sherri Hill's dresses. But they're expensive after converting to Malaysian ringgit.

Is Kara's name pronounced Kiara or Kyra?

I like Maine's muscles. I love her gown, specially from the back view. Her walk is weird though.

I honestly never would have thought NE would win because my fav girls rarely win. I absolutely love her quiet spunkiness and her overall coolness that makes you feel you could be her friend. That high 5 at the end with the singer sold me - she was a far cry from the usual Lu-esque titleholder. She can be an elegant and sophisticated and a cool and good sport Miss USA. I like her straight hair too, I thought she stood out amongst the sea of curled permed hair.

Subject: Miss USA pageant is a cringeworthy, tone-deaf affair filled with bikinis and hashtags

Is it possible for Miss USA to be a forward-thinking broadcast in a year when cries of "Me Too" have incited a powerful movement against assault?
Short answer: Nope. At least not this year.

That's not for lack of trying. This year's show, hosted Monday night on Fox by married couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey, tried to touch on all of the relevant buzzwords of the day (Me Too, Black Lives Matter and Time's Up were all mentioned), while still keeping to the traditional beauty pageant formula. It's as if producers thought that the inclusion of questions about marches and sexual violence would translate into an empowering affair.

Instead, it made for a cringeworthy contest that went, no joke, straight from a heels-and-bikini competition into a montage of contestants talking about when they've experienced assault. Later, there was a video of contestants reciting Maya Angelou's inspirational Phenomenal Woman poem, all while appearing to pose for a glossy photo shoot, barefoot in a pond.
The whole thing had a tone-deaf structure, and the contestants' often-awkward answers to interview questions made it even worse.

Question: Is it good that the Boy Scouts are letting in women now?

Miss North Carolina Caelynn Miller-Keyes didn't point out the fact that the Miss USA pageant is for women only: "I think this is a great change. We are in a time in the whole world where gender equality is a huge... 10, 20 years from now, men and women will be total equals."

Question: What can be done to protect women on college campuses against sexual assault?

Miss Florida Génesis Dávila's answer immediately puts the onus on women to act: "College campuses should have different groups and activities where women can self-defend themselves."

Question: Why did one-third of women neglect the right to vote in the presidential election?

Miss South Dakota Madison Nipe's response made it sound as if she were arguing for the right to vote: "Women are perfectly capable of expressing how you feel," she said. "We need to get out there as women and show the world."

Question: What do you say about one in four children growing up in single-parent homes?

Miss Nebraska Sarah Rose Summers, who would go on to win the whole contest, said, "I'm so grateful to have grown up in a home with two parents, so I can't personally relate to this," before adding this non sequitur: "I do work in a children's hospital as a certified child life specialist where ... I've seen single mothers at the bedside working remotely on their computers to stay by their children and support them, and I think that it just shows that children — no matter if it's a boy or a girl — that they can do that."

Other interview answers sent Twitter memes flying.

THESE ARE HANDS DOWN THE MOST PAINFUL ANSWERS EVER #MissUSA

As soon as Florida gave her answer I was done. #MissUSA
9:44 PM - May 21, 2018

Well, Nebraska was a great choice! Her critics are already saying that she won't do well at Universe. I think besides South Dakota, she was probably one of the best choices out of the top fifteen. She nailed the final two questions. I think she will make a great Miss USA.

Lu obviously did not like Nebraska or Maine. She kept trying to plug in Nevada and New Jersey. Remind me again why they have annoying side commentary? I can do without Lu and Carson.

North Carolina was the biggest surprise of the night for me. I did not think she would keep advancing. I believe that spot should have been reserved for the other Carolina girl (who was robbed of a top spot).

I had Oregon ranked in fourth after the SS in the preliminaries but she did not make my top fifteen because of a weak gown performance. I can see why she made the cut.

The only girl that I really questioned being in the top fifteen besides North Carolina was Texas. Both of those girls were head scratchers for me.

I was quite surprised that Florida managed to sneak a top five spot. She clearly had the most trouble in the gown portion. She could barely walk and that gown was hideous. I would have given her spot to Tennessee.

I would have included South Dakota in the top three over North Carolina. South Dakota was a great surprise.

I thought all three of the girls did a good job answering the final question. They each personalized the question which made them somewhat relatable.

I loved the hosts. I did not care for the musical performers.

I found it odd that Paula Shugart was a member of the "selection committee". I don't think she should have a say in who wins the crown.

It was great that each of the girls got more screen time rather than rushing their performances!!!

Overall, this show was much better than the one last year.

The winner was a big surprise for me, but a really good one! I'm delighted (but shocked) that they went with Nebraska: beautiful, great personality, and a state that never has had much success at Miss USA till now.

I just rewatched the commentary during SS and EG and it's pretty clear that Carson and Lu didn't like Nebraska very much and I bet they were surprised that she won! Ha!

The biggest negative surprise for me was that SC didn't make the cut. Also, I had high hopes for Alabama.

For a while I was afraid that Maine was going to win when they started emphasizing the military stuff. Glad they got that out of their system two years ago, LOL.

As far as the production goes, I thought this year was a bit better. Having the long runway sort of forced them to spend a little more time on each contestant during SS and EG, or at least it seemed that way. So glad it's back to 2 hours instead of 3.

A beautiful face. She has lots of personality and like her unique answer. NC and Nevada personalize their answers but they were a little pageant patty.. and both states have won before so let’s give it to Nebraska this time!

I think FL ruined her chances. Not a fan of the gown and she had trouble walking in it.

GO Nebraska!! Reminds me of Kristen Dalton, very stunning!
GA is still a safe bet along with Nevada but South Dakota is bringing it!

During Monday's night telecast, Keep your eye on the contestant that gets pulled over during the swimsuit competition for a short interview. There's a 90 percent chance she will win.

I rewatched the preliminaries in depth and checked out some interviews. Here are my final rankings and thoughts.

Alternates/Bubbles-

Alaska- She is such a cute girl and she gave an awesome performance in the preliminaries. I just could not find room for her on my final list. Would not be surprised if she made the cut.

Massachusetts - The word fierce came to mind when I watched her performances. She is super cute.

Florida - I thought she gave a great SS presentation. Her gown performance was kind of recycled for me. Would not be surprised if she failed to place. The whole Florida drama from last year kind of rubs me the wrong way.

Washington - Cute. Would not be surprised if she placed.

Arkansas - Overall, I thought she was great in the prelims. She was super solid.

Top 15 -
15th - South Dakota - She snuck into my list at the last moment. Miss Supermodel!
14th - Montana - I think she might steal a final place.
13th - Oklahoma- She seems like a spunky girl. I don't see her going further than top ten.
12th - Illinois - She is my darkhorse.
11th - Wisconsin - Nice surprise.

Top 10 -
10th - Alabama - Love this girl. I think she could easily be a top-five contender.
9th - Nebraska - My favorite blonde! She is so photogenic.
8th - Nevada - Solid.
7th - New Jersey - See above.
6th - Maryland - This was a nice surprise. She is tall and a great walker. She is the Erin Brady of 2018.

Top 5-
4th - District of Colombia - The best in SS. Not a fan of her gown.
3rd - Mississippi - The sleeper of the pageant.
2nd - Tennessee - She is one to watch.
1st - South Carolina- She reminds me of South Carolina 2007. I think she will go very far tonight.
Winner- Georgia - The crown is hers to lose. She stands out by a mile from the rest.

This is not about predictions, but about who you'd love to see wearing the crown Monday night.

For me, it is Alabama. I just love her look. It's been a while since I have had a blonde as my #1 pick, but she has a freshness about her that I really like.

You?

Abby really surprised me during the preliminaries. I love this gown and her long legs really enhance her figure but apart from this, she has an emotional story of losing two family members to car accidents which resulted in her creating a platform called #W82TXT which encourages people to stop texting while driving. She is also active in disaster-relief organizations. Apart from this, it can't hurt that two judges are former Miss Washington USA titleholders. Will Abby get Washington's second Miss USA crown 50 years after their first was won by Didi Anstett in 1968?

I saw her on FB and there is something unique and special about her. She wasn't even on my radar.
