Subject: "Fantasy Miss USA" - the last 30 years

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 15:21:58 08/21/14 Thu

To tide things over until the state season fully gets underway I thought I’d introduce a “fantasy pageant” of 100 of the most memorable Top 10 contestants in the Miss USA pageant over the last 30 years (1985-2014). I hope you find it worthwhile.

Similar to the contest which was set up a month or two back (but unfortunately disappeared) I’m setting up my contestants in batches of 10. I will be asking you to select your Top 5 from each group and we will whittle the numbers down to a “Fabulous 50”

To guard against “age bias” my initial groupings will have the contestants bracketed together in similar decades. I urge you to watch old youtube clips to familiarize yourself with contestants that you have forgotten or have never encountered.

Group 1

Laura Harring, Brenda Denton, Christy Fichtner, Halle Berry, Sophia Bowen, Tamara Walker, Kelly Holub, Courtney Gibbs, Elizabeth Primm, Diana Magana

Group 2

Jill Scheffert, Christina Faust, Carole Gist, Gretchen Polhemus, Audra Wallace, Kym Digman, Charita Moses, Gina Tolleson, Brenda Leithleiter, Shannon Marketic

Group 3

Candace Brown, Angela Hines, Kelly Hu, Kimmarie Johnson, Chelsi Smith, Shanna Moakler, Ali Landry, Danielle Boatwright, Becca Lee, Tiffany Tenfelde

Group 4

Brook Lee, Nicole O’Brien, Angelia Savage, Kasi Kelly, Holly Roehl, Larissa Meek, Holly Mills, Morgan Tandy High, Angelique Breaux, Lynette Cole

Group 5

Jina Mitchell, Tiffany Meyer, Liane Angus, Tiffany Fallon, Shauna Gambill, Kelly Lloyd, Michelle Arnette, Brandi Sherwood, Beth Hood, Susie Castillo

Group 6

Shandi Finnessey, Jennifer Murphy, Jessica Rafalowski, Ashley Puleo, Tara Conner, Cristen Duren, Danielle Lacourse, Chanel Wise, Magen Ellis, Candace Allen

Group 7

Rachel Smith, Amanda Pennekamp, Stephanie Culberson, Candace Crawford, Lacie Lybrand, Tamiko Nash, Lauren Barnette, Helen Salas, Kristen Johnson, Lindsey Hill

Group 8

Crystle Stewart, Tiffany Andrade, Ashley Durham, Kristen Motil, Lindsey Jo Harrington, Tiana Griggs, Angela Byrd, Mary Margaret McCord, Brooke Daniels, Nia Sanchez

Group 9

Morgan Woolard, Jazz Wilkins, Alyssa Campanella, Stephanie Smith, Madeline Mitchell, Brittany Booker, Tucker Perry, Cassandra Kunze, Ana Rodriguez, Olivia Culpo

Group 10

Nana Meriwether, Jessica Hartman, Alicia-Monique Blanco, Jade Kelsall, Erin Brady, Breanne Ponder, Marissa Powell, Audra Mari, Nicole Johnson, Brittany Guidry

Please enter your selections below. I’ll tally up once we reach a critical mass over the next few days

Subject: Miss Universe 2014 in Switzerland?

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 16:21:45 08/21/14 Thu

This article states Universe 2014 will be in Switzerland. Is there even a Swiss franchise holder? Are they even participating? Is this anywhere near true? Cool if so...but doubt it...

Miss Higuey wins Miss Universe Dominican Republic

Miss Universe Dominican Republic 2014 - elnuevodiario.com.do

Zoom Picture

Santo Domingo.- Kimberly Castillo, representing the eastern city of Higuey (La Altagracia province) was crowned Miss Universe Dominican Republic 2014 last night at the Carlos Piantini Hall of the Eduardo Brito National Theater.

The Dominican beauty will represent the country at the Miss Universe 2014 pageant which will take place in Switzerland. Castillo, 25, was crowned by her predecessor, Miss Universe Dominican Republic 2013, Yaritza Reyes.

The runners-up were Aletxa Mueses from Santiago, Dhío Moreno from the Dominican expatriate community in Mexico, María del Mar López from the National District and Analíz de la Cruz from Punta Cana

The event was broadcast by Telesistema Channel 11.

Subject: Miss Texas USA 2001 Crowning Moment

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 02:04:18 08/23/14 Sat

In honor of Miss Texas USA being just a week away (go Tahnae!), I wanted to pay tribute to one of my favorite titleholders to ever come out of that state-and she showed why you never give up on your dream.

I didn't get Kandace Krueger when she won TX, or even when she won Miss USA (I was still in shock over Larissa Meek blowing her final question and thinking that cost her the crown), trying to figure out how GA made it to the top 3 (not a fan, sorry), and I was crushed for DC, because I thought Liane was just a sweetheart. It's funny that, for the second time in two years, the state who was 1st RUP went on to win the following year.

Over time, however, Kandace has become one of my all time favorite Miss USAs ever. Even all these years later, I still think she could run circles around some of the girls who win their state titles now, and even some Miss USAs. This was her fifth attempt at Miss TX USA, having not placed the previous four years she competed. Not giving up, she not only finally placed and won at state, but went all the way to 2nd RUP at Miss Universe.

Some notes on the top 5:

Mandy Jeffreys-how my heart breaks to think this was as close as she ever got to punching her ticket for Miss USA. I still can't believe that all those years of TX teens competing, and only one ever managed to make it back to Miss USA during this era. And of course, this top 5 boasted 2 future Miss TX USAs-Kasi Kelly, who won the following year, and Stephanie Guerrero, who won in 2004. Kelli Pickel, the 4th RUP, had been competing several years in both the teen and miss division.

I wish Heather had kept her hair long for Miss USA. I thought that made such a difference. Her sister Valerie competed several times for the TX USA title, and I thought she was a stunner. Too bad she never won.

Lastly, remember the days when the TX USA production won Emmys and could rival one of the national pageant telecasts?

Have you seen this?

"Florida pageant mom fed daughter tapeworms to make her lose weight"



Ugh, I wish I never told anyone I like pageants. They seem to trawl the webs only to find articles they can send to me for a laugh. Can I pass on the grief to the board?

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A pageant mom in Florida is the subject of an upcoming episode of Untold Stories of the E.R. after forcing her daughter to ingest tapeworms in order to slim down for competition.
Upon checking into the emergency room with severe stomach pains, nurse Maricar Cabral-Osorio thought the teen was pregnant. But an ultrasound showed no fetus -- although there was an inexplicable growth in her intestines.

Recounted and reenacted for Discovery Fit & Health's anything-but-subtle medical scare docudrama, the unfortunate teenage contestant's condition became clear upon a fateful trip to the bathroom.

"It was a toilet bowl full of tapeworms," Cabral-Osorio recalled.

"It was so gross and she had pooped all these tapeworms. There were a couple that were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl."
Having passed the parasites, the teen was then assumed to be fine. But one question remained -- how did she get the tapeworms in the first place?

After an apparent fight between the mother and daughter, it became clear the mother bought a pill of tapeworm eggs in Mexico and forced her daughter to take it to lose weight for an upcoming pagent.

"We were wondering how did she get those tapeworms, and then you saw the mom turn white," Cabral-Osorio said.

"The mom was apologizing to the girl. It's like 'I'm so sorry. You know, I did it just to make you a little skinnier. You needed some help before we went on to the pageant."
It is unclear when the incident occurred or if criminal charges were brought against the mother.

OK OK we have to have a thread on this! Who's been challenged? Who have you challenged? This thing is going seriously viral! I knew I couldn't escape indefinitely but I wasn't expecting to be challenged by reigning Miss Texas USA Lauren Guzman... thanks Lauren! :O Unfortunately you won't be seeing a drenched Carly because it's winter here ... but I did put a donation through :D

Whilst initially I was sceptical about this and I think the issue of donating vs awareness is a good one, you can't deny they've received a serious boost to their fundraising :)

Post your videos if you've done it! I know a couple of my fellow mods have :)

Kimberly Castillo (26 yrs, 6'0") from Higuey, has just won the 2014 Miss Dominican Republic pageant in Santo Domingo.

Here's the crowning video:

Kimberly has an international title under her belt - she was crowned Miss Italia nel Mundo in 2010.

I like her, although in the end, I would have ultimately chosen the 2nd RU, Dhio Moreno. I think Kimberly will make the Top 10 at Miss Universe, but won't advance further. The ladies here seemed thrilled she won!

Some side notes:
1. Yaritza Reyes, my sentimental pick at Miss Universe last year, still looks gorgeous.

2. I seriously don't understand how Aletxa Mueses (the 1st RU) made it that far. Someone please explain this to me. Did she blow the judges away at interview?

3. Thathiana Diaz (NY Teen USA 2010 and Top 15 at Miss Teen USA 2010) made the Top 10. Great job, Thathiana!

Added bonus, from YouTube, the swimsuit competition featuring the Top 15:

Best of luck to Kimberly at Miss Universe 2014!
