Subject: Kim Marie Johnson was a judge's favorite and could have given Kenya a run for her money, but...she froze with her answer.

[> [> Subject: Kim and especially Kelly Hu's eliminations are what really gave Kenya the luck she needed despite her being prelim favorite (although she was in a virtual tie with Kelly). As you mentioned in a previous thread, Kenya was middle of the pack during the final pageant until finally placing 2nd in Top 6 Q&A. I doubt she would have won had Kim and especially Kelly entered the Top 3 instead of Erin and Tavia. Both Kim and Kelly were stronger in their Top 10 Interviews. Such is the randomness of pageants.

[> [> [> Subject: By this time, we were already in the period where Miss USA had to ensure diversity in their winners. Since there had been 2 white winners after Carole Gist in 1991 and 1992, it made sense that the winner of 1993 would be non-white. With the elimination of Kim and Kelly, Kenya was the last one left standing who fit the bill. And Kenya's win is probably why we didn't see Pat Southall bag the crown in 1994 despite being better than Lu.

[> [> [> Subject: Kim was clearly not very smart, but she was at least adorable and genuine. Kelly Hu is to me, the pageant pattiest of them all. Everything she said reeked of inauthenticity. Despite clearly being best in EG that night, I think she was cut at the right time.

[> [> [> [> Subject: Miss USA 1993 was the year of the patties. Kelly was fake and came across annoying. She was way overscored and even in evening gown. Kenya was the best choice that night and she was underscored on finals.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: I picked Kenya based on initial semifinalist interviews. I rooted for her through thick & thin that night. She benefited most from Kim Marie's bungled response.
