Pageant Predictions


Think you know who'll take the crown? Get your crystal ball and prove it!

CONGRATULATIONS KYBOI!!!

The 2008 Miss Teen USA Pageant Prediction Awards ended in a three-way tie!

When the scores were tallied, all three (kyboi, PageantFanMA, and TRTW) had earned 30 points. So we went to our first tie-breaking criteria (the entrant who correctly predicts Miss Teen USA wins the tie), but none of the top three had predicted that Arkansas would take the crown. So we went to our next tie-breaking criteria (the entrant who submits his/her list earliest wins). In a truly impressive move, kyboi’s list was the very first one submitted for the 2008 Miss Teen USA pageant, which just goes to show that waiting for the prelim photos isn’t always the smartest move. PageantFanMA and TRTW submitted their lists seventh and 26, respectively. So the 2008 Miss Teen USA Pageant Prediction Award goes to kyboi!!! (Full results are at the bottom of this page.)

This year we had 70 participants submit predictions for Miss Teen USA, compared to 51 last year – an increase of 37 percent. That was a pretty surprising number, as I expected fewer people would be interested in MTUSA this year as a result of it not being televised.

It’s worth noting that MUO’s decision to cut from 15 to 5, rather than announcing a top 10, meant that the maximum possible score dropped from 40 to 35. Still, I personally won the 2007 MTUSA Pageant Prediction Award with a score of 30, and kyboi won it this year with a score of 30, which means the competition is pretty damn fierce!

 Some interesting tidbits: The 20 most popular delegates were South Carolina (60 lists), North Carolina (59 lists), Arizona (53 lists), Colorado (53 lists), Idaho (43 lists), Ohio (43 lists), Virginia (43 lists), Florida (41 lists), Tennessee (41 lists), Texas (41 lists), Minnesota (39 lists), Arkansas (37 lists), Louisiana (36 lists), Massachusetts (34 lists), Vermont (24 lists), Wisconsin (24 lists), New York (23 lists), Oklahoma (22 lists), Hawaii (21 lists), and Oregon (21 lists).

Only 20 participants had Alabama on their lists, 17 had California, 13 had Pennsylvania, and only 10 had New Hampshire. 

Only three participants predicted that Arkansas would be crowned Miss Teen USA. They include: Boots, TNBoy, and Med94RN.

Kyboi’s winning list included: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and Wisconsin.

PageantFanMA’s first runner-up list included: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia.

TRTW’s second runner-up list included: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

It should also be noted that two of the top 10 finishers were first-time participants (Boots and AnnaKate), so they will undoubtedly be ones to watch for during the 2009 pageant season.

Finally, I once again scored USB’s Mock Miss Teen USA results. While USB’s predictions haven’t always been spot-on, they knocked it out of the park this year with a whopping 30 points, tying our winner. WAY TO GO USB!!!

Once again, thanks to all of you for participating. Even though the pageant wasn’t televised, I had a blast scoring your predictions and parsing the data. I hope you all enjoyed it as well. You’ll be hearing from me in 2009!
