Subject: Yep, we are on the same page. I thought Texas was (frankly) rather strange looking, but otherwise the Top 15 was reasonable. I was also happy with the final question responses: no cringe-worthy moments. As far as Miss USA not doing well at Miss Universe, it raises the question of whether that is what the "selection committee" should be looking for. To me, that is not the top priority in choosing Miss USA. I'd rather have a Miss USA like Nebraska over a "fierce" Lu Serra clone with her eyes on Miss Universe. Overall, this was my favorite Miss USA since 2014 when Nia won.

[> Subject: I thought it was refreshing for them to finally be so upfront about that fact that Paula influences the selection! I thought the public voting aspect was silly - I think is was just a way for them to gauge how many people were watching before the ratings come out. I agree that the side comments were ridiculous, the unknown cowboy during evening gown was awful, but I LOVED seeing & hearing 98 - the old boys are holding up well! Nick & Vanessa should be their permanent hosts - perfection! I thought every finalist who changed her gown made a mistake - I thought Florida had lost her mind! The final 2 looked more like a couple of MAO gals than Miss Universe contenders making me wonder when the merger would be announced - ha! Thrilled for the Vanbros team - the person I was watching with suggested they must know where the bodies are hidden, but in reality they're just top-notch at prepping their contestants so well done to them!

[> [> Subject: I agree about Nick and Vanessa - they were like Donny and Marie for me. The Paula Shugart appearance was an obvious observation. NEBRASKA and KANSAS - who knew? Though Hailey Colborn could've been a tiny more upbeat in speaking with Vanessa in the CHI chill lounge about her win. I thought she was way subdued, but pretty enough. FLORIDA - no words - she was Top 15 at best for me. I loved the "unknown cowboy" wailing - it was the only time during the contest where I finally "got" NEVADA. Her singing right along with him made me like her as having a cool personality, simply because she did nothing for me when she won her state title, followed by Top 15. I definitely warmed up to her when she reached the Top 3. Congratulations for her third place finish. Unlike most, I really grew to like NORTH CAROLINA as she continued. She was no where on my radar but I thought she was really cute at the end. She and board fave Audra Mari now share TEEN and USA first runner-up titles.
