Does anyone know what's going on with some of the teens from 2007-2008? I started watching pageants during that time and really hoped to see some girls return to miss! These girls include Macy erwinc Sana Idnani, Rochelle, and Katrina Gianni?

The reason we are seeing such odd results are that the directors of these states are briefing the judges not to send the best girls to nationals, (and to hold them back for next year) because of a certain state is already getting heavy favortism for nationals or should I just not read into it that heavily.

Miss Universe 2014 will be crowned in a few months and there are some beautiful girls in this batch, so I want to know, who are your favorites so far? This is my personal Top 10 right now in order (not a prediction at all, just a favorites list)

1. India - Noyonita Lodh
2. Brazil - Melissa Gurgel
3. Ukraine - Anna Andres
4. Lebanon - Saly Greige
5. Jamaica - Kaci Fennell
6. Colombia - Paulina Vega
7. Hungary - Henrietta Kelemen
8. Kosovo - Artnesa Krasniqi
9. Argentina - Valentina Ferrer
10. South Africa - Rolene Strauss

I'll make a prediction mixed with personal favorites when the pageant is closer, but those girls are my personal favorites so far! I am also watching Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, China, Philippines, Albania, Paraguay, Lithuania and a few other girls who I can't remember right now.

Usually, I love the contestants from powerhouse countries, but this year, I don't get the hype on any of them such as Venezuela, USA, & Puerto Rico, but that's just me.

Who are your favorites this year?

Does anyone have any updates on the Miss West Virginia USA results? The pageant should have started 15 minutes ago and I think Top 15 should have been announced by now.

Date Posted: 12:53:39 10/19/14 Sun

Hello everyone, today, 3 new contestants for Miss USA will be elected from New Jersey, Washington & West Virginia. I love New Jersey because it is my neighbor state & they have several very good options who could do amazing at Miss USA, I'm expecting a frontrunner to win and a back to back placement is possible. Washington is always underrated and they always send underrated girls who fail to get noticed at Miss USA. Be prepared for a surprise! I am disappointed in West Virginia, they have sent stunning girls in the past such as Chelsea Welch & Jessi Pierson. This year, none of the contestants have what it takes to place at Miss USA and so far, WV has the weakest batch out of all the Miss USA state pageants.
This week, I did something different, since there are so many contestants and I have a limited number of lines, I just posted my Top 5 and my commentary on them along with my bubbles for each state. So lets start with my picks in New Jersey.

Winner - Jordan Rector

If Cassie Kunze & Brie Gabrielle had a child, the result would be her! She is the most consistent this year and I have a hunch that it's a blondes year. Her head shots & candids are stunning. I feel that this is her time & she could place higher than Emily Shah did at Miss USA

1st Runner Up - Savannah Schechter

She reminds me of Taylor Swift, not only by her looks, but the fact that she’s already a recording artist as well. In my opinion, she is Top 5 at Miss USA material, but she isn’t the best she could be right now.

2nd Runner Up - Victoria Virgo

She has made the Top 5 for the past two years & I think that we will definitely see her on the Miss USA stage either this year or next year. I feel like Jersey is aiming for a blonde this year, but if she wins, she could place at Miss USA!

3rd Runner Up - Carissa Palumbo

She is the more superior of the Palumbo sisters, she isn’t fantastic, but her beauty is more pleasing to my eyes than Jessielyn’s!

4th Runner Up - Ora Kemp

Ora is beautiful & should have made the Top 5 a long time ago. Besides that, you can tell that she wants it very bad by judging her on social media. It’s going to be the survival of the fittest this year & she will have to fight harder than she ever did before.

Bubbling Up - Jessielyn Palumbo & Vanessa Oriolo

Washington

Winner - Miss Greater King County USA, Brittany Eiseman

Brittany is stunning! She looks like she’s on the shorter side, but she has a doll face, her cheerleading experience will help her.

1st Runner Up - Miss Sammamish USA, Demetra Coyer

Demetra is a veteran and I don’t know if she has ever been in the Top 5 & she's fresh, my only concern is that sometimes she looks really forced with her smile.

2nd Runner Up - Miss Wahkiakum County USA, Evelyn Clark

Who knows, will this be her year? She’s very fresh but facially not the best.

3rd Runner Up - Miss Greater Clark County USA, Shelby Meader

She looks a lot like Gwen Stefani! If she styles her hair wavy and to the side, wears red lipstick and chooses a beautiful red gown, I think she could steal the show.

4th Runner Up - Miss NE Seattle USA, Sarah Coglianese

I am a fan of her beauty and I think she could steal the crown.

Bubbling Up - Maeloni Ogle, Meghan Anderson & Arianna Barrio

West Virginia

Winner - Miranda Harrison

She, is the safest choice for the crown. I don’t think she would do anything at Miss USA, but I think she will win.

1st Runner Up - Nichole Greene

She reminds me of Jacquie Lee from The Voice. She's a pretty girl but Miranda is the obvious choice for me.

2nd Runner Up - Gabrielle Ash

If Miranda and Nichole trip up somewhere in the competition, this is her chance to win.

3rd Runner Up - Torie Bosley

She’s a rookie with a very interesting beauty.

4th Runner Up - Hannah McComas

One of the more experienced contestants in the batch which, she should use against the other girls.

Bubbling Up - Dominique Collins & Marlisa Lake

Thank you very much for reading and up next, Louisiana!

So,I have missed three pageants so far so I am officially out of the running, though I am still going to play. And my luck at teen is terrible,but I am pulling for Olivia Caputo for the win. However, there is plenty of competition. Here is a possible top 15.

In the spirit of collaboration I thought I'd open up a thread to discuss this weekend's state pageants with my fellow Road competitors.

In Florida Teen, I have chosen Olivia Caputo for the last two years running, and she has placed 2nd runner up and 1st runner up respectively. I'm going to have to stick to my guns and choose her this weekend - don't see my vote changing.

Washington is interesting - a few contenders including former runner-ups Maeloni Ogle, Evelyn Clark and Demetra Coyer returning again. Former Seattle Seahawks cheerleader Brittany Eiseman also looks to be a strong contender. To be honest, I don't have a strong sense here and will probably look to hear any feedback from prelims. In Teen I'm leaning towards either Hailey Sturgill (3ru last year) or Taylor DiLeonardo (but I don't know too much about her so a little risky)

West Virginia is also somewhat of a "black box" for me. Former Miss West Virginia (MAO) Miranda Harrison is an obvious initial contender- I'm not sure how she will transition into the USA system, but never discount national experience. But my choices will probably come down to either Nichole Greene or Marlisa Lake (based on facial beauty). My Teen choice is between Cassy Trickett or Emily Wigal (both of whom have done well in other pageant systems) but I'm not discounting Morgan Smith , who was a semi-finalist last year. This is another state where I'm hedging my bets and will make my final decision based on prelim feedback.

I see that New Jersey is up. My immediate choice must be Katherine Gaal - I think she'll be a strong contender at Miss USA. But New Jersey often makes interesting choices not necessarily based on national competitiveness. Savannah Shechter(Teen 2011) is competing this year and she has to be considered a strong contender, alongside the Palumbo sisters. In the Teen category, 2 of last year's runner-ups (Jacqueline Giancola and Lauren O'Brien) are back. However, Gina Mellish and Shannon Thaler look as if they have potential to be strong contenders.

Charming, Crissy and Chexmex, Athalia and my other Road colleagues...... how is your Road research coming on?

We're short staffed (& training) at work at the moment, I've been working five out of six days which is unusual for me, I usually do three shifts a week but they've all kind of run together. I'm deliriously tired and annoyed I haven't been able to get all my usual posts up on my site (yes, my priorities suck, deal :P).

But you know what??? Last night I couldn't sleep because I was having nightmares that I hadn't made my picks for the Road To contest and I would have picked the winners!!!!! Seriously! lol

A few more ladies headed for Miss Universe



Fadil's Beauties: Miss Kosovo is Artnesa Krasniqi and Miss Albania is Xheneta Byberi. Yes, it's two different girls. Lol. They look a little similar, but I think they're both beautiful. I believe they're going to Miami.


Serbia 2015 - Dasa Radosavljevic will be going to the next Miss Universe pageant...wherever or whenever that may be. Pretty.


Hungary - Henrietta Kelemen will represent Hungary at Miss Universe!!! She was crowned a few weeks ago, but I don't remember anything about it being posted here. I think she's gorgeous!!!


Switzerland - Well, unfortunately she won't be going to Miss Universe, but I just wanted to share her win with you anyway. Laeticia Guarino was crowned Miss Schweiz a few days ago. You may remember that the organization decided not to send it's winner to Miss Universe. She would solely serve her country. I find Laeticia super cute and I'm a little disappointed we won't be seeing her in Miami.

RPM has been known to go up to 18 making the cut in the past, and I have a suspicion that may happen this year based off of the quality of the contestants. Below are my top picks, in random order...

Date Posted: 11:59:28 10/17/14 Fri


LAFAYETTE (Madeline Langlinais), RED STICK (Devin Boyd), RAGIN' CAJUN (Ashley Giambelluca), HEART OF ACADIANA (Alexandra Ahmadi), ACADIANA (Sharee Carroll)



VILLE PLATTE (Candice Bennatt), MONROE (Felicia Bolton), LAKESHORE (Christina Famularo), UL (Kimberly Newville), FLORIDA PARISHES (Tanya Crowe)



GULF COAST (Hilary Tuttle), NORTHSHORE (Whitney Moss), SOUTHLAKE (Lauren Whittle), GREATER LAKE CHARLES (Maaliyah Pappilon), CRESCENT CITY (Sara Comiskey)



PELICAN STATE (Mariah Gewin), VIEUX CARRE' (Lauren Vizza), CALCASIEU (Monique McCain), CENLA (Courtney LeBlanc), VIOLET (Krista Toussant)


There are about 8 other contestants I could add to this list. But for now, I'll give bubble status to Sportsman's Paradise, Vermilionville, LSU, Southwest, Camellia City, and Southeast. So many strong candidates. Coming up with a top 15 will be a brutal task for the judges!

I'm kinda confused. Googled Miss Supranational and there is one to be held in Poland and one in India... Not gonna lie, among all our reps this year, she's the one I'm most excited to see compete at the International level! I really think she can win.
