Miss USA 2014 Contender!

Hello pageant fans,

I just wanted to check in with all of the fans and possibly some of the other contestants competing this year.

My preparations for Miss USA are almost complete! YAY!! Daddy bought me a storage unit in Baton Rouge, and he is renting a U-Haul to drive my wardrobe down beginning this weekend. I honestly don't know how to choose between all of these gowns! When I visited Carlos Alberti, I had to rent a private jet to bring back all of the amazing custom gowns he made for me. So beautiful! So, what is everyone else wearing? What are your second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth choices?

I'm also back from my professional photography tour. So exhausting! First I photographed with Benizo. It was so amazing, but I have to say I didn't enjoy the neck bruises I got from wearing my crown around my neck. Next I did a shot with Fadil Berisha. He told me to call him FaFa! So cute! :) As if my neck bruises were not enough, I suffered minor whiplash during my FaFa shoot because of one of the poses he asked me to do. Finally, I met with Georgina Vaughan. LOVE her, but again this professional photography is so so much work and pain!! I had to wear bandages over my eyes for seven days because of Georgina's studio lights, and I also suffered first degree burns across all exposed areas of my skin.

At any rate, all three photographers AND Carlos told me there is NO DOUBT in their minds about me winning both Miss USA and Miss Universe this year. Not that I had any personal doubts at all, but it's always nice to have some confirmation from the PROS. I mean, these are not just random people on an internet board, they actually live and breathe and WORK FOR A LIVING based on pageantry. SO awesome.

Anywhooo... trying now to line up a meeting with Sherri Hill. It can't hurt to buy six or seven gowns from her as well, and Daddy said he would donate $100,000 to her little charity for the poor military girls who don't have clothes of their own. AWWWWWWWWWW. So cute. Love him! <3

My body has NEVER been in better shape. I do three hours of cardio every morning and lift weights after lunch and just before dinner. My trainers said I could probably win a fitness competition RIGHT NOW. They've had me on a very strict low carb, low fat, low nucleic acid diet for the past year, and it has really paid off. I feel like such a pig taking in almost ONE THOUSAND calories per day, but they have been so right about what this would do for my body. Love them all and am so grateful that I have the dedication to stick to this diet and workout plan when I could be spending my time sitting in front of a computer screen posting on the internet like so many every day people. SO BLESSED!!! <3

I'm so ready to win this crown, I can taste it! After Daddy bought me a condo in this Godforsaken place a couple of months before I competed in their hokey little state pageant, I just ASSUMED I would be able to go back home after winning the title. But no. Just no. My director INSISTS that I do all of these silly appearances in some of the most pedestrian places. Beyond frustrating. Daddy is packing up my condo before I leave for Baton Rouge, and I will never return to this dust bowl. So icky. But it will be so exciting to win a national title for these cute little people who live here who just really don't know what success really is.

Well, I just wanted to stop in and say hello! If any of my fellow competitors are reading, I would love to hear from you. I'm starting to choose a Top 14 list of my runners-up and other seminfinalists.

Best wishes to all,

Miss USA 2014 Contender!

Hi USBers! I am planning to compete in my state Miss USA pageant this fall and I have been shopping around for swimsuits. I have seen many Venus swimsuits, but I would like to try something a little different. What do you all think of the new VS itsy bikini bottom? http://www.victoriassecret.com/swimwear/brazilian-and-itsy/the-itsy-bottom-beach-sexy?ProductID=177466&CatalogueType=OLS
Is this pushing it too far?

My TOP 16 (THEN)

ALABAMA
CALIFORNIA
CONNECTICUT
FLORIDA
INDIANA
LOUISIANA
MINNESOTA
NEVADA
NEW YORK
NORTH DAKOTA
OKLAHOMA
PENNSYLVANIA
RHODE ISLAND
SOUTH CAROLINA
UTAH
WEST VIRGINIA


My TOP 16 (NOW)

ALABAMA
CALIFORNIA
COLORADO
CONNECTICUT
DELAWARE
FLORIDA
INDIANA
MASSACHUSETTS
MINNESOTA
NEVADA
NORTH DAKOTA
PENNSYLVANIA
SOUTH CAROLINA
TEXAS
VIRGINIA
WEST VIRGINIA

I want to talk about the girls I put in, saying that the girls I took out I still love, I just felt these 5 girls really demanded a place on my list.

COLORADO - I was always intrigued by her and thought she was a great choice when she won state, but now, I think she has a leg up on so many similar brunettes because of her Greek heritage, making her more Universe-like. I just never was able to find room for her. Now I do!

DELAWARE - She's 5'10" with a beautiful face and very delicate features. The curse is finally broken!

MASSACHUSETTS - Caroline has made a huge transformation from her crowning to present. They've replaced her "girl next door" persona to a very sexy siren.

TEXAS - I really didn't think Lauren would make the cut. Having seen her compete for 3 years and win the title this year, I just had her barely missing. But after the video "That's My Dress" she looks really amazing and seems to have left her nerves in her past. She looked confident, beautiful (which was never a question) and nerve-free.

VIRGINIA - I love this girl's height, her exotic looks and after reading her bio it made me like her that much more. She is a very sexy young woman and my eyes are wide open to her now.

The girls I removed to make room for these 5 are: LOUISIANA, NEW YORK, OKLAHOMA, RHODE ISLAND & UTAH.

(You know those girls that you aren't crazy about but know they'll make it? Well for me that's SC. I'd put back NY in a hot minute and keep out SC if I didn't feel she was a shoe-in. Often our lists are littered with girls we hesitatingly add because we THINK they'll make the cut, but aren't really feeling them.)

So, which list do you like better? My "THEN or my "NOW" ?

The USO event in NYC was so telling. I wish you all could have been there to see these ladies in person and see who is strong and who is not.

North Dakota- Yes. She has a beautiful face, but I am very worried about her body. It needs major work, and she needs help on runway modeling.

Louisiana- Yes. She has lost weight and is looking pretty good. Top 15.

Utah- Yes. Unfortunately, she looks much better in pictures than in person. She is short and needs to get body in shape. But she will be in.

Wyoming- No. She has really been trying, but body is bad and face won't cut it.

Arizona- No. Worst body. She needs to lose 20 pounds. Nothing special.

Mississippi- Yes. She looked great. But needs to keep going the sexy route.

New Jersey- No.

Rhode Island- No.

New York- No.

Tennessee- Yes. Very interesting.

Georgia- Yes. This is your Miss USA.

Nebraska- No.

Oklahoma- No. Good body, but no personality and not a good enough face.

Minnesota- Yes. Pretty face.

Maryland- Maybe. Very tall and skinny, but weird mouth. Her nose job didn't help.

Missouri- No.

TEENS---- Arizona, Alabama, Kansas and North Carolina....Yes All others no.

This is probably a long shot - Does anyone remember the name of a pageant movie that came out likely in the 1970s or early 1980s. It had to have been the only one (if not a handful) during that time period about pageants. I remember watching it when I was a child and I randomly thought about it today.

So I was checking out FB to see if Miss Kentucky was even competing this year since there have been NO pics of her out there since crowning and I stumbled across an ad for Real Housewives of Orange County. It stated "Meet my Family in early May". So I'm thinking WTH! Well the Real Housewife listed was Lizzie Rovsek. I'm thinking WHO? But looking closer I realize it's Elizabeth Arnold, Miss KY 2002. She looks different but ok. You should check it out. But why do these pageant girls do Real Housewives? I just don't understand that one.

I have read that Miss USA is not doing her job if she is not picture perfect at all times. I think the job of Miss USA is much more than looking pretty. Interacting with other people, including children and being cheerful with those she encounters.
If you had to choose what would you pick? a miss usa who is cheerful to those she meets at all times but might not have a perfect outfit at all times or she might have a bad hair day or someone who is picture perfect but also might be a grouch, cuss someone out or just be unpleasant

Katherine Webb is engaged to long-time boyfriend AJ McCarron, 23, a former University of Alabama quarterback headed for May's NFL draft.

"AJ and his mom told her they had to be on property for a benefit," the source explained. "It wasn't out of the ordinary for her to be attending a charity benefit. They told her it was for a charity Dee Dee was involved in."
Luckily for the lovebirds, they will be able to watch the "beautiful" moment and cherish it forever because the proposal was caught on camera.

"Katherine and AJ were told the charity's cameras wanted to do some beauty shots of the couple at Coast Restaurant at the Beach Club," the source explained. "So, AJ and Katherine headed to Coast Restaurant, and that's where AJ proposed. He proposed overlooking the Gulf of Mexico."

The 24-year-old bride-to-be was completely shocked when she received the 5-carat cushion-cut center sparkler and "didn't have a clue she was going to be proposed to that weekend."
And the surprises kept coming for the former Miss Alabama USA. Webb's loved ones popped out shortly after the engagement and the couple celebrated with their families for a bit at the Beach Club, before heading to Fisher's restaurant. And yes, there was a beautiful cake.

So there are a couple of songs that are getting a lot of attention lately. One of the songs is by Betty Who called Somebody Loves you. You might have seen the youtube video that went viral a few months (maybe more) back where a man proposed to his partner at a Home Depot. I'm not sure if the song is appropriate for Miss USA, but I like it for the opening number.



Another song I like that is getting popular is a song by Clean Bandits called Rather be. I think this would be great for the Swimsuit.



Also, Latch by Disclosure ft. Sam Smith would be cool for SS


And for the EG, John Legend's All Of Me.


A little unconventional I admit. But I like them.

Thoughts?

Jimena Espinoza (24 yrs, 6'1") from Lima has just won the 2014 Miss Peru Universe pageant.





Jimena will represent Peru at Miss Universe 2014.

I think she'll be one of the most polarizing and most talked-about delegate this year. I have to admit that she has that look I just don't get. I felt the same way about Egni Eckert (Paraguay 2012) and Natalia Guimares (Brazil 2007). She'll probably either miss the cut entirely or sail to the Top 5.

A hilarious/sad moment during the video - her 1st runner-up (who I felt should have won) was also named Jimena, so when the host announced the winner, she had a two second moment of thinking she won, poor thing.

This year there are some girls who do not belong to a sash state who potentially could do very well - North Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Delaware, Indiana.

With Olivia's win from Rhode Island, and Erin's win from Connecticut, do you think sash is a major factor or not? Why or why not?

So, last week was my birthday (04/05) and my husb asked what was first on my mind. I replied, half-jokingly, that I was depressed that I officially aged-out of joining any pageants and thought that it sucked (other than the fact that I have a wedding ring that is).

He said: Whatev E. Anyway, you know you'll suck as a Miss Universe. You're a rebel and can be bratty and you hate mornings. They'd totally fire you.

He was right. I would suck.

So my question is, do you think you'd make a good Miss Whatever?

Can someone confirm that this is Elizabeth Arnold (miss ky teen USA 1998 and miss ky USA 2002) on the new season of real housewives of nyc? If so, this is getting ridiculous.

First Kenya Moore, then Joyce giraurd and now her? Does anyone else feel like muo is feeding into the real housewives franchise suddenly?

So I asked my five friends (who are non pageant fans) to make up a top 15 list based on pics from the contestants. I randomly mixed the pics so there was no certain order. They had no idea what state was being represented. Here are the ones that got the most votes.

1. West Virginia
2. New Jersey
3. Utah
4. Tennessee
5. Pennsylvania
6. Virginia
7. Iowa
8. Wyoming
9. Maryland
10. Georgia
11. Kentucky
12. Alabama
13. Montana
14. Connecticut
15. Illinois

They pick an "unexpected titleholder?" Like for instance Cali with an African- American or redhead? New York with an Asian? Washington state with a Latina? I feel like it makes a difference! What do you think? And for the coming 2015 season ,what states would you like to see pick an "unexpected" bombshell!

I've thrown around rough drafts of top 15/16 lists, but never really put them in any numerical order. This is my first attempt at such. I think my thoughts and opinions will shift drastically before June 8th. But here's my premier top 16 list!


MISS USA - FLORIDA
1st RU - NORTH DAKOTA
2nd RU - SOUTH CAROLINA
3rd RU - NEW YORK
4th RU - NEVADA

TOP 10 - TENNESSEE
TOP 10 - HAWAII
TOP 10 - TEXAS
TOP 10 - ARIZONA
TOP 10 - ALABAMA

TOP 16 - CALIFORNIA
TOP 16 - LOUISIANA
TOP 16 - GEORGIA
TOP 16 - UTAH
TOP 16 - WISCONSIN
TOP 16 - MINNESOTA

BUBBLES (I know there are several... But all of these were considered for a spot in my top 16, and could easily break through)... North Carolina, Wyoming, Indiana, Colorado, Massachusetts, Illinois, Oklahoma, Alaska, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Rhode Island.

So many strong contestants age out that might have eventually won a state title. So my question is, what if the age limit was 29? (instead of 27 by Feb. 1)

Hi USBers!

I live in a New England state and I want to start training for my 2015 state pageant. But I am wondering, is it best to get a coach that trains females for my state or should I look into getting a coach that trains for pageants in general? Also, should it matter if a coach is training other females for the same state pageant?....sorry for all the questions, I’m new to the competing phase.

Thank you for the help!

I have a question about the age requirement... why is Catherine Ho ineligible to compete in Miss USA 2015? Wouldn't she be 26 when Miss USA comes in 2015? She is under 27 years old by Feb. 1, 2015... because her birthday is Dec. 31, so she should be considered 26 this year... and even 26 before Feb. 1, 2015..

3. What happens if there is a hiding spider in the winners flowers?

4. Are pageant contestants aware that they might contract rabies if a rabid animal enters the hotel they are staying at?

5. What if a UFO abducted a contestant and replaced her with a fake look alike? Would that be fair to the other contestants?

6. If a pageant contestant fall asleep during narcolepsy while competing will that hurt her score?

7. Is speaking in tongues permitted backstage before competing?

8. Are the contestants checked for crabs, so they don't itch while competing?

9. Will a MUO contestant's blood type effect the MUO choices for the top 16?

10. If a pageant winner goes blind during her reign can she still keep the title?

11. Is a contestant allowed to have a phobia of kaleidoscopes?

Mary Jean Lastimosa (26 yrs, 5'7") from North Cotabato, has just won the 2014 Miss Philippines Universe title in Quezon City.



Here's her official web video from the pageant:


Mary Jean will now represent the Philippines at Miss Universe 2014.

She's a pageant veteran, placing 2nd runner-up (behind Shamcey Supsup) in 2011 and Top 15 in 2012 (behind Janine Tugonon).

I watched the pageant through a grainy webcase and I was initially surprised she took it all. That being said, I think she has the goods to continue the Philippine streak this year. She needs to soften up her features but she will probably do very well at Miss Universe.

Author:

Date Posted: 14:12:12 04/03/14 Thu

This is a different post than I wrote just right now.

The last time a Miss Teen USA winner competed at USA was back in 1998!! Since then, no winner has gone on to compete in Miss USA...

QUESTION: With that said, in your opinion, which of the still eligible Miss Teen USAs have the best chance at winning the triple crown??

I would say the reigning titleholder, Cassidy Wolf and 2009's winner, Stormi have the best chances at winning the triple crown. Even if they don't win the triple crown, I think they have the most potential to at least win Miss USA!!

And, my next QUESTION is: Which winner could've won the triple crown??

Out of all the titleholders crowned, I thought Kelly Hu could've won the triple crown. If she won Miss USA, her exotic looks would've put her an edge over Colombia and Venezuela and Puerto Rico!! Looking back to it all, I'm glad Kelly didn't qualify to compete in Miss USA 1986, 1987! She probably wouldn't had placed (or maybe make the top 10 AND THAT'S ALL). Making her wait and compete in Hawaii certainly paid off because she looks a lot more stunning in 1993.

Alt. Brandi and Shuana came the closest to winning Miss USA, I don't think they would've conquered Universe. 1997 was so competitive and 1998 had T&T and Venezuela and they were the clear frontrunners. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? Could they had won Universe?

AND, the ultimate question is - CAN the triple crown ever be achieved??

Date Posted: 13:58:42 04/03/14 Thu

I honestly needed to come here after doing so much work for my thesis... what a bad advisor I have.

Anyway, I rewatched the Miss Teen USA 1985 pageant and I was excited to hear how the triple crown idea was so embraced back then!! I liked how they explained the idea and how the MUO thought it could be achieved.

Looking back to it now, do you guys think somebody could've won the triple crown (Miss Teen USA, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA)?? Here is my take on it:

Miss Teen USA representation at Miss USA

Back then in the early 80s (was the rule removed in 1987?? I'm not sure, somebody here can maybe tell me), Miss Teen USA automatically competed in Miss USA if she met the age requirements. Kelly Hu didn't compete because she was still young. Looking at the titleholders that did compete, I honestly thought none of them will come close to winning Miss USA... In the 80s, Miss USAs were mature, elegant, tall (some were), and Miss Teen USAs didn't meet those expectations (alt. the Teen contestants back then were really mature, honestly, they looked too young in comparison to the Miss USA contestants). No wonder none of the winners placed at Miss USA..

If I had to pick one winner who I thought will win Miss USA after winning Miss Teen USA and (assuming she also met the age requirement) will probably be Kristi A. (1987). But, then again, she was short and the Texas Aces were on a force. AND, I don't think she will win Miss Universe because she is simply too young.

QUESTION: Do you guys think any of the winners in the 80s could've won the triple crown?? Or Miss USA at least??

Subject: Prize Packages

As Miss South Africa 2014 Rolene Strauss has won cash, a car and products valued at more than R1.3 million (about $140,000 USD). She also gets thousands of rands in cash and study bursaries to award to South Africans that she meets during her reign. Cell C is also giving the winner access to R200 000 ($19,000) to spend on random acts of kindness.

In Russia, you win a $100,000 cash prize among other things.

Those are pretty generous prize packages.

What does Miss Universe get? There is no cash prize but she receives a monthly salary of $1,500 (needs confirmation) and lives rent-free in New York City. Also included in the prize package: a year's supply of hair care products and tools from Farouk Systems; a one-year scholarship (including housing) from the New York Film Academy; a custom diamond tiara and jewelry designed by Diamond Nexus; a shoe wardrobe from Chinese Laundry; and memories to last a lifetime.

QUESTION: Does a girl need to pass on the prizes that she won at her national pageant to her runner-up if she wins Miss Universe? What if the national pageant's prize package is way more generous than Miss Universe's, like in the case of South Africa? If this is the case, then I can see some girls being perfectly happy being a national titleholder and have little motivation to win Miss Universe. Surely, Miss Universe is a much more prestigious title but c'mon!


Let's also look at what the runner-ups receive at Miss Universe compared to other international pageants:

Miss Universe:
1st Runner Up: US$3,000.00+gift from Diamond Nexus Labs+Miss Universe trophy
2nd Runner Up: US$2,000.00+gift from Diamond Nexus Labs+Miss Universe trophy
3rd Runner Up: US$1,000.00+gift from Diamond Nexus Labs+Miss Universe trophy
4th Runner Up: US$1,000.00+gift from Diamond Nexus Labs+Miss Universe trophy
Top 10 & 16 semifinalists: US$500.00+gift from Diamond Nexus Labs+Miss Universe trophy per semifinalist

Comparison:
Miss Grand International Prize Money for the runners-ups:
1st Runner Up: US$10,000.00
2nd Runner Up: US$5,000.00
3rd Runner Up: US$2,500.00
4th Runner Up: US$1,500.00

Miss International Prize Money for the runners-ups:
1st Runner Up: 1 Million yen (US$10,000.00)
2nd Runner Up: 800,000 yen (US$8,000.00)

If a girl cannot afford plastic surgery and doesn't have a divalicious stage presence, then she may be better off competing at Miss International for a potentially better prize with fewer girls competing.

She should've really been runner-up to Alyssa had it not been for that hideous red dress.
