Miss USA State Pageant Dates for 2017 State Titles

USA state pageants for 2017 are now COMPLETE !Stay tuned for national Miss USA and Miss Teen USA dates !



OFFICIAL Sponsor of the Mr. USB contest




Subject: Deshauna’s placement is consistent with other USA winners who finished as semi-finalists such as Loughery, Johnson, Ozers, Dascomb, McDonald, Tomes, Marketic and Brady. Knowing Deshauna did not place any lower than 9th, she placed higher than Seelbrede-10th, Shanley-10th, and Laura Martínez-Herring-9th (Tie?) as well as Castillo and Campanella who did not advance out of the Top 15. And of course, she placed higher than the four USA’s that did not make the SF cut at all.

Subject: I'm so confused. Studying heights of contestants and IRIS claims to be the same heigh as Columbia t which is 5 foot 8 inches. Columbia is clearly several inches taller. These numbers come from the official Universe website. Then Thialand says she is 5 foot 7 and is much smaller than all the other ladies. The only person not lying about height is a Steve Harvey at 6 ft 2 inches. Assuming they are all wearingv5 1/2 inch heals, the sponsored shoes, it's clear that the fires are lying. Haiti is 5 ft 9 and towering over the other in the top 6 and top 3 picks. What gives? Are the girls lying about their heights? Is this common? How many inches do they lie about and has anyone ever been caught and gotten in any trouble?

Subject: Original Miss Universe 1952 Placements and the # of Wins Each Country Had Won (To Date)

Date Posted: 00:58:33 02/07/17 Tue

Finland - 1952, 1975
Hawaii - 1962, 1972, 1978 (USA) and 1997 (Universe)
Greece - 1964
Hong Kong - None
Germany - 1960
Mexico - 1991, 2010
South Africa - 1978
Sweden - 1955, 1966, 1984
Uruguay - None
USA - 1954, 1956, 1960, 1967, 1980, 1995, 1997, 2012

So only two countries from the original Miss Universe 1952 placements have not won - Hong Kong (China) and Uruguay.

The only year all the Miss Universe placements (Philippines, USA, Norway, Spain, Israel, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Greece, India, Japan, and Lebanon)have won Miss Universe is 1973. This happened in 1994 with India winning Miss Universe for the first time.

Now that the Miss USA 2017 roster is complete, it's time for some number crunching :)

Miss USA 2017 will have 8 former Teens returning:
Arryn Johnson (AR) - Top 15 @ Teen USA 2015
Olga Litvinenko (CT) - Unplaced @ Teen USA 2007
Mia Jones (DE) - Top 15 @ Teen USA 2014
Jasmine Fuelberth (NE) - Unplaced @ Teen USA 2013
Katie Coble (NC) - 2nd RU @ Teen USA 2007
Madison Cota (VT) - Unplaced @ Teen USA 2014
Jacqueline Carroll (VA) - Top 15 @ Teen USA 2010
Alex Carlson-Helo (WA) Unplaced @ Teen USA 2012

2017 has a little over half the number of former Teens compared to 2016's record breaking 15 former Teens. Perhaps there was former Teen fatigue during the 2017 state pageants.

A return of 8 former Teens is about the middle of the pack when compared to previous Miss USA classes. Listed below are the number of former Teens in Miss USA classes from 1984-2017:
15: 2016
12: 2014
11: 2007
10: 1993, 1998-2000, 2003, 2013
9: 1996, 2009-2011, 2015
8: 1995, 1997, 2002, 2012, 2017
6: 2004-2006
5: 2001, 2008
4: 1989, 1991, 1994
3: 1987, 1990, 1992
2: 1984, 1988
1: 1985
0: 1986

I also compiled the number of returns to Miss USA in Miss Teen USA classes from 1983-2015:
12: 2008, 2009
11: 2010
10: 1991, 1993, 2002, 2006
9: 1990, 1992, 1998, 2003, 2004
8: 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2000
7: 1987, 1988, 2011
6: 2001, 2007, 2013
5: 1984-1986, 2005
4: 1983, 1989
3: 2014
2: 1996, 2012
1: 2015

Since 1989 was the earliest birth year for Miss USA 2017, we can add 2004 to the Teen classes that have aged out entirely, and 2008 to the Teen classes that have delegates aging out. The majority of 2005 and 2006 have aged out and a good number of 2007 have also aged out.

This has bothered me for decades. How American's think that if you don't speak english you are not intelligent, and God forbid not be Miss Universe.

In the world, according to wikipedia 1.8 billion, out of 6.7 billion people... so 27%? Not a very accurate answer, for a not so smart question.....speak English.

Now our First Lady Milania Trump speaks 5 languages. How many languages do you speak?

Happy Tuesday, all! What are some "fixings" that have occurred within the Miss Universe Organization that you feel didn't need any repairing to begin with? This could include format and production changes (at the international, national or state level), old traditions that you would love to see make a return, etc. This is in no way a thread meant for bashing of the MUO, I simply intend for us to have a harmless discussion and to reminisce on what this organization once was lol let's talk below....

So today on Instagram O Jo says how two years ago she was living in LA with Nadia Mejia and they spent Valentine's day together. Cute. Girlfriend forgot she was supposed to live with mum and dad in Oklahoma at that period.

Hello! I was doing a little internet research on the Miss France Pageant & I happened across an item that said Iris wasn't the pick of the judges' panel but won via the added public vote. Does anyone know about this? The article detailed the top finishers in the various competitions & Iris was bubbling near the top. Yet I gleaned the gist of the article was Iris was pushed to the top by the public phone-in.

Hey all, Global Beauties said the competition background music is free music found on YouTube. Did anybody find it yet? Anybody knows if the elimination music can be found on YouTube?

My Time as a Miss Universe Judge

MANILA — It was a balmy evening in Hanover Park, Ill., and I was so giddy with excitement I couldn’t sleep. It was one of the biggest nights of the year: Bigger than the Oscars, bigger than the Super Bowl. It was the night they crowned Miss Universe 1973.
I have been obsessed with beauty pageants since I was 6 years old and watched Miss Philippines win the crown. For me, they are the entertainment and glamour equivalent of the United Nations. Every country is equal, and every country is celebrated.

So when I was invited, 44 years later and as the editorial director of Paper magazine, to be a judge at the 65th Miss Universe pageant in Manila (the country was hosting the pageant for the third time, having also welcomed the event in 1974 and 1994), I not only was deliriously excited, but also felt I had finally arrived.

Perhaps as a result, I overpacked — my suitcase was crammed with Lanvin, Ashish and L’Wren Scott sparkle tops, an Ashish black-sequined track suit and a J Crew classic tuxedo in case I had to be mildly dignified — but I felt I needed options. I arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which somehow reminded me of San Diego, on Jan. 28. Waiting was a luxury coach emblazoned with the Miss Universe logo and the words “Confidently Beautiful” that would ferry me to the Mall of Asia Arena, where I was coached in operating the electronic voting machine along with the rest of the judging panel: Cynthia Bailey, model turned Real Housewife of Atlanta; Francine LeFrak, a film and theater producer with a jewelry company called Same Sky that employs women artisans around the world; and three former Miss Universe winners.

On Sunday, January 29, France won Miss Universe for the first time since 1953, and 12 pageant predictors earned 30 or more points in the 2017 Miss Universe predictions competition.
Find out who they are by visiting: http://www.pageantpredictions.com/2016missuniverse.htm

Out of the 117 people who submitted their predictions for Miss Universe, only 10 correctly guessed that France would take the crown: posa2000, Athalia, MSgal, I Heart Pageants (IHP), Pikachu, DUDA, Salso, arianafan, NeSoDak, and Angel.

Based on Pageant Predictions participants, the runaway winner was Miss Brazil, as 28 predictors anticipated a Brazilian victory.

As usual, I took the liberty of scoring the results of USB’s Mock Miss Universe competition. Collectively, USB would have earned a total of 27 points, tying for 27th place.
As the final MUO pageant of the season, these scores have been added to the ones from Miss USA and Miss Teen USA, completing the 2016 Predictor of the Year competition. To see who came out on top and claimed this year’s coveted title (not to mention a pretty impressive trophy and some serious bragging rights), visit: http://www.pageantpredictions.com/2016finalstandings.htm

Once again, thanks to all of you for participating. As always, I had an absolute blast orchestrating the competition, and I hope you all enjoyed it as well. I can’t wait to start all over again in 2017!

I thought Kenya World should be higher on the list. And for the first time ever, Venezuela only made the semi's in 1/4 pageants! Also I thought Deshauna should have been there, she rocked that Evening gown!
