[> [> Subject: I think Connecticut should really consider dying her hair darker and getting rid of the brassy look. Her haircolor is the only thing about her that I do not like. Other than that, she's a gorgeous girl! We just need to see her in motion.
[> [> Subject: Agreed. This was the most difficult time I've ever had getting through contestant video clips. MUO should make some money by selling one of these montages to Jack Daniels for commercial purposes. Whiskey would fly off the shelves!
[> Subject: What you are seeing are just pieces of everyone's film. There is hours and hours of it. MUO picked what film they wanted to use. THEY WERE ALL asked the same questions. So if you're talking about someone sob story..they all had them.
MUO chose not to show it so chill . Girls did not pick their segments

[> [> Subject: For me the biggest disappointment was Georgia. She has a very odd face. From her cheekbones down her face is a complete square. Also Massachusetts- she's fine until she smiles. CA looks like she could be spectacular but I can't get beyond that nose!
and New York is not a disappointment because I never thought she was pretty in the first place.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: I'm not that crazy about Georgia either. She's one of these girls that when you first look at her she looks great--then look closely and she doesn't look so great. MY TOP 5 from videos are: Kentucky, Connecticut, Wisconsin, New Jersey, and Arkansas.
[> Subject: I ABSOLUTELY ADORED watching these and really enjoyed it. The level is very high this year. There is certainly no crisis at all in terms of the quality of both outer and inner beauty of this bunch. I think the most likely to go to top 16 are: For the win: CONNECTICUT (crown fav), 1 r.u. OREGON (fab Latina), personality +, can Telemundo back in business make her Susie Castillo 2.0), 2 r.u. ARIZONA (Alicia Monique 2.0), 3 r.u. TEXAS (could give CT run for the title), 4 r.u. MISSISSIPPI (sweet and talented, Alita 2.0). Then for top 10 I could see CALI (exotic Blonde), ARKANSAS (Southern Belle), UTAH (1st LFBTQ+), NEW YORK (communication factor), MASSACHUSSETTS (strong personality, hot). For top 16 I could see: DELAWARE (surprise everyone will adore), OKLAHOMA (Choctaw Native beauty), HAWAII (Abiba Birta 2.0), MISSOURI (Blonde bombshell), IDAHO (she won't miss it this time), GEORGIA (experienced Southern beauty).
[> [> Subject: These in the previous message are not necessarily my choices but are more how I could see this pageant go. I think the bubbling under at this time would be composed of: NEVADA, PENNSYLVANIA, D.C., RHODE ISLAND, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, WEST VIRGINIA, WYOMING, NEW JERSEY and TENNESSEE. I could see these 10 in the top 16 easily and who knows, top 10 and maybe even top 5 are not out of question. It will be a very close pageant methinks... and SS bodies and gown choices may well determine who wins the whole enchilada..
[> [> [> Subject: HawtPlusSeksi, you don't have North Carolina on your lists. Do you think North Carolina is going to fall victim to the Teen USA runner up curse that has struck several Teen USA runner ups in recent years?
[> [> [> [> Subject: Yes. I called it once the "Dixie Runner-Up Waterloo Conundrum" and so many girls fell victims of that. I am not too convinced by Jane, but thinking of my bubbling under delegates, she was quite close to my top 26 so I am not completely ruling her out and prefer her to South Carolina.
[> [> [> Subject: I wish I had your level of patience! LOL! But I agree that this year is a tight race. I can't pick a front-runner, which makes for a more suspenseful pageant. Getting Miss USA back on a major network is probably MUO's biggest goal at the moment, so I wonder how much focus they will place on physical beauty vs. platform. I just hope the ladies aren't forced at gunpoint to sport Scary Sherri Hill for EG this year.
[> [> [> [> Subject: Believe it or not, it was pure pleasure for me! Though I haven't watched everything at the same time. I like the fact that close-ups are longer than in recent years. I think Connecticut is probably the front-runner. But it will depend if they go the BLM road or the Latina Telemundo road a la Suzie Castillo. Then, Oregon is a great choice. Arizona is hot, hot but her interview skills do not seem that strong. If they go BLM, Mississippi would be a great choice too. She reminds me more of Whitney Wanda's rather than Alita Dawson actually. There are so many great choices out there, btw I completely agree about Sheri Hill. PlEASE no gurl should be forced to wear her, what happened to EG agreement Miss USAs is a travesty!
[> [> [> [> [> Subject: Wisconsin is an Afro Latina and actually covers all their bases. BLM AND THE SPANISH MARKET as she speaks fluently and is already attached to a national organization that is extremely relevant and legitimate IJS she’s under the radar but a choice I would not look past.
[> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: It's one of the oldest pageant cliches, but I have to say that Wisconsin is far more telegenic than she is photogenic. I wasn't impressed by her pictures but she looks really good on the video
[> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I believe she is half Dominican from things I have read. And I agree that she is telegenic more so than photogenic which makes sense because she is a television journalist not a print model so she is better in motion. I don’t know about both of you but I would rather have someone look better in a real life and in motion than the other way around and be a disappointment like many this year.
[> [> [> Subject: NV needs to lay off the fillers. Half of her face does not move
She was prettier when she was crowned. Girl.. you dont have to try so much. And its annoying that now she decided to become active on IG.. Barley posted during her reign. WE SEE YOU>

[> Subject: I do not understand why CT is so high on everyone’s list? She does not scream elegant queen. Class, sophistication or any of the above. She to me is SI model or Hooters queen. Sorry. When I think of class and elegance ( WHAT I WANT IN MY QUEEN) I think of IL, TX, VA. Even ID which seems to be a favorite styles is questionable at best and looks teen.
lets crown a REAL queen that can win universe!

[> [> Subject: Sorry, but the difference is that CT is just being herself. So many of the others though beautiful and playing to the judges. Sort of a “virtual pageant patty”. CT is just keeping it real.
Rooting for CT and NJ. Love TX too, reminds me of, wait for it, Suzie Castillo

[> Subject: Wisconsin is at the top of my list followed by Mississippi, Oklahoma, Michigan, and Hawaii. These five made a splash. Wisconsin was a surprise I did not know I would love but a choice as of now that I could see a lot of people falling in love with.
[> Subject: I believe CT will have the same end result as last years Miss CT. Everyone though last year's Miss CT was real strong and thought she would at least make the final cut but then she was left clapping. I was even surprised when CT failed to make the cut last year because I thought Acacia was really strong.
[> [> Subject: Re Acacia: Sierra had her top 6, Alvin had her #2, and Seng actually had her #1. I was totally floored when Connecticut, Texas, and New Jersey failed to make the cut. And I said to myself this pageant has got to be rigged.
[> [> [> [> [> Subject: It took me a week to watch ALL of these (or should I say suffer through) and here's what I think: Miss USA (CT)--that's a hotsy totsy, I also like TX, NJ, FL, GA, AR, KY, MO, MS, NC, TN.,
those are my top 11. I can't decide about a top 15.

[> Subject: Connecticut has that different exotic striking look which the judges might go this year. My only issue with her is that she's not very tall. Add a few more inches to her and I'd say send that woman to Miss Universe!
