Subject: MUO is probably reading USB. They are getting rid of the continental system finally and plans to give you all a heart attack on Dec 8. It's TOP 20-6-3 Format.

[> Subject: The PAGEANT GODS have finally spoken! Love that all the semifinalists get to compete in BOTH swimsuit & evening gown. My only criticism is is that gargantuan CUT from 20 to 6! But I'd still take that over the regional rubbish any day.

[> Subject: I really hope this is true. While I think the continent thing added a little suspense, I would much rather have the 15/20 strongest contestants making the cut, regardless of what part of the planet they come from. I had previously heard the top 20 would be composed of five contestants from Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas (with no wildcards). So I hope this new information that you post is true!

[> Subject: I really hope they are reading the boards and get the hint that the division by continents is at best a throw back to a colonialist mentality. I can't believe that in 2019 we are still thinking about borders and regions when judging a lady, Just judge the lady regardless of what her sash says. If I was in charge, I would have a preliminary dress rehearsal without sashes where the judges give their scores based on the merits and not the geo political bias that a sash entails. Then the presentation show is just for the audience and directors to discuss who is in and who is out.

[> Subject: Oh. I love this system. Love the fact that the average of EG and SS will determine top 6. Maybe they'd prefer Cheslie not to win as it will be difficult for her to advance with a *regular* panel of judges.

[> Subject: I actually love this! Wayyy better than regions! I was iffy at first about the abrupt cut, but we have to think if they cut to 10 after SS, then 5 after EG... itd pretty much be the same exact thing. This way girls compete in both phases, and we get a top 20 (which we need in a competitive year like this). I feel its a big win!!

[> Subject: I love this! Still not a fan of the top 3. It takes suspense away from the crowning moment which is always the best part. Kind of excited now for universe

[> Subject: Is this for real? I *hate* the fact that it's a few days from the competition and we are still trying to figure out this basic stuff. Imagine if it were a few days before the Super Bowl and fans were posting rumors on the message boards: "I think a field goal will be worth 3 points this year!" "Really? I heard they were going back to 4 points, like last year." In any case, I would definitely prefer this to the regional system, but what I'd really prefer is consistency from year to year, no gimmicks, and full transparency about judging and scoring.
