Now that headshots and bios are up on the Miss USA website and I've been able to thoroughly review the girls 'stories and accomplishments' Here are my Top 15 based on IMG standards:
CO, VT, KY, NM, DC, MA, IL, IA, ID, MI, MT, OR, UT, WV and a 4 way tie among the similar storylines of NY, AZ, CA and OH. Lots of teachers and wanna be NFL sideline reporters this year. Best jobs go to MI, VT and WV. Only two of these 15 girls were on my list based on photographs.

Would winning a pageant ruin a future success? Would Halle Berry have become an Academy Award winning actress is she won Miss USA? Would Gal Gadot have become Wonder Woman if she had won Miss Universe? As much as I love pageants, I do not think they would have had their success if they won. Unfortunately, there are negative stereotypes about pageant winners. I am glad they did not win.

Subject: Excluding the Miss USAís that did not make the cut and the Miss USAís that became Miss Universe, who do you think gave the best and worst performance at Miss Universe from the rest? For me, the best was a toss-up between Hayek, Finnessey, and Sanchez, but Iíll select Shandi as she carried herself well and was genuinely excited for Jennifer. For the worst, itís between Shanley and Marketic, but Iíll go with Mai because of her attitude when she was selected as a SF and her interview. Yours?

You probably already know this, but lately Cheslie has been talking with former Miss USAs on her Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/missusa/)

She recently interviewed Alyssa Campanella, Deshauna Barber, Shanna Moakler, and Tara O'Connor.

They are all worth watching, but the chat with Tara is really interesting. First of all, Tara is completely unrecognizable. And she talks frankly about her reign, including how Miss Universe was not a great experience for her because she was high the whole time. I never warmed up to her as Miss USA, but I really enjoyed this interview and appreciate how candid she has been.

There has been five former MAO contestants (maybe even more than that if you count Brooke Lee who didnít win Miss Hawaii but went on to win Miss USA and Miss Universe).

But, no MUO girl (at least a contestant that has competed at Miss Teen USA or Miss USA) ever won Miss America. I believe the closest is Jennifer DuPont in Miss America 2005.

It is almost 70 years. Why is that the case? Does MAO have something against MUO?

I feel that MUO has been very kind to MAO, a former Miss America was invited to join Teen USA last year AND three MAO girls made the top 10 at USA 2019 (2 even made top 5).

What is your opinion on this?

Who are some titleholders or contestants who you didn't get when they competed in a pageant but who you like much better on social media, videos, etc.

For me, a recent example is Raquel Pelissier, Miss Haiti 2016. I really didn't understand how she made it to first runner-up at Miss Universe. That had to do at least partially with her styling: the hair parted down the middle and the long ponytail. But when I have watched her YouTube channel and seen her in other videos/photos, I think she is great.

Can you believe it has been 5 years already since this notorious and fascinating pageant? You can rewatch it here...



This was the pageant that was broadcast on Reelz after... um... certain controversies (let's not go there). I have to say, it was actually a very good production, and I liked having former titleholders as the judges.

Before the pageant, my favorites were Kentucky, Arizona, Nevada, and California (who missed the cut). This was the year two "celebrity sisters" missed the cut: NC, Julia Dalton (Kristen Dalton's sister) and UT, Nicol Powell (Marissa Powell's sister).

There's lots to say, but a few thoughts on some of the semifinalists.

OKLAHOMA: After the question round, Olivia was the only viable winner, so I don't question her win, but she was never a favorite of mine with that crazed open-mouth laugh and the tear-jerking video.

NEVADA: I loved her and was disappointed she didn't go farther. She had a stumble in gown, survived that, but was done in by the question round. After this year they made some changes to make sure the YouTube moments didn't happen anymore. (I think contestants at least get a list of possible topics now, which seems to have helped.)

RHODE ISLAND: She was great till evening gown. Although the gown was avant garde, she couldn't walk properly in it and everything went downhill from there.

DELAWARE: The curse was finally broken, and in a very good way. I loved Renee and wish she had been in the Top 5.

MICHIGAN: I really liked Rashontae. If you remember, she also had the hot dad! I don't know what she was thinking with her gown choice, which looked like the ghost from a Scooby Doo cartoon.

ARIZONA: She was my initial pick to win, but she was lacking a bit of spark on finals night.

VIRGINIA: I had very mixed feelings about her. She was probably too muscular in swimsuit and looked a bit too intense with her hair slicked back, but there was something very appealing about her.

A few miscellaneous thoughts: Nia looked great (as always) for her final walk ... This was the last year that Miss USA was somewhat predictable (I think many people picked Olivia to win); once IMG took over it became anybody's guess ... Julie Alexandria, the commentator, was much better than Jeannie Mai ... I loved Delaware and Alaska, both in yellow, as co-winners of Miss Congeniality.

For all its controversy and craziness, I thought this was actually a good pageant and probably the strongest Top 15 of the decade.

Curious to know your thoughts!

I'll start. One of my favourite transformations ever is Ly Jonaitis. At her crowning as Miss Venezuela 2006 she had jet black hair, black heavy eye liner and bright red lipstick... by the time arrived at Miss Universe 2007 she looked like a soft, gorgeous, brunette GODDESS!

I was randomly watching the Miss USA 2011 pageant the other day (you can find the full pageant on YouTube)

I just wanted to say that this was the last real group of STRONG girls that I can recall. I HATED how they announced the top 15 by geographical region and I am so glad that they didn't continue doing that.

I think Ana Rodriguez had the whole state of TX in the audience supporting her that year too because people were PISSED when she didn't win. To be fair, she was robbed and totally would have done better than Alyssa at Miss Universe. Miss TN was SO patty and I don't know how the heck she placed as far as she did.

Normally this time of year is baseball's all-star game, which, of course, ain't happening.

But it got me to thinking about my pageant all-star teams.

Here are my choices (in random order) for the all-star Tops 5s, based on titleholders since 2000.

****Miss USA****
Nia Sanchez (2014)
Crystle Stewart (2008)
Shandi Finnessey (2004)
Susie Castillo (2003)
Olivia Culpo (2012)

****Miss Universe****
Catriona Gray (2018)
Iris Mittenaere (2016)
Dayana Mendoza (2008)
Ximena Navarrete (2010)
Zozibini Tunzi (2019)

****Miss Teen USA****
Katherine Haik (2015)
Allie LaForce (2005)
Cassidy Wolf (2013)
Marissa Whitley (2001)
Stormi Henley (2009)

Who makes your team?

Shanna Moakler has tested positive for COVID-19. The former Playmate revealed her test results with her followers in a series of videos posted on her Instagram story on Thursday.

"I got my test results back yesterday and I am indeed COVID positive. They think I'm in around day seven," Moakler -- who had previously shared that she had been "really sick the last four, five days" -- explained. "I've had different symptoms from fever, chills, coughing," she continued, adding that she's just mostly exhausted.

Moakler also shared that she has a great doctor and nutritionist who have been helping her "boost her immune system" and help her "fight this."

"I just know a bunch of you guys have been sending me such sweet messages and I have a really great support team of friends and family who are keeping my spirits up," she noted, adding, "Otherwise I am in full rest mode."
