Pageant Predictions


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

Congratulations Buffy!!! 

With a decisive two-point lead, “Buffy” (Illinois, USA) wins the 2008 Miss USA Pageant Prediction Award! The first runner-up was “Sindarella” (Florida, USA) with a score of 33, and the second runner-up is the reigning Predictor of the Year, “I Heart Pageants” (Missouri, USA) with a score of 32. Will “I Heart Pageants” dominate the competition again this year? It’s worth noting that this is the fourth consecutive MUO pageant in which “I Heart Pageants” has finished in the top five!

To see how everyone scored, click the 2008 Predictor of the Year link to the right. The chart will list each entrant’s score and rank. Keep in mind that since Miss USA is the first of MUO’s three pageants for 2008, the scores earned are one-third of your cumulative score which will ultimately determine the 2008 Predictor of the Year! But, if you didn’t hit the top of the leader board this time around, have no fear. Last year I scored 35th during Miss USA, but still managed to land at 11th place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!). Unfortunately, this year I’m sitting at 68th place! LOL! Then again, we should all learn something from Crystal’s persistence! If she can compete for Miss Texas five consecutive times and FINALLY walk away with the Miss USA crown, anything’s possible!

Buffy’s winning list included: Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia. Therefore, Buffy scored 35 points (a new Miss USA record) by correctly predicting 11 of the top 15, nine of the top 10, and all five of the top five! Buffy also correctly predicted Texas would take the crown (along with 24 other participants).

Of the 103 registered participants, 72 submitted their predictions for Miss USA, 41 percent more than in 2007 (YAY!). The registered participants represent 39 states and 13 countries, including Greece, Brazil, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, United Kingdom, Japan, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Lithuania, New Zealand, and the United States.

Here is a run-down of how many participants had each of the semi-finalists on their prediction lists:

Texas (68), Mississippi (4), New Jersey (23), Oklahoma (60), Pennsylvania (45), Florida (60), Indiana (57), Massachusetts (66), Missouri (49), Tennessee (52), California (22), Minnesota (15), Rhode Island (16), South Carolina (57), and Utah (17).

While almost all the participants had Texas on their lists (68 out of 72), only four participants predicted Mississippi would make the semis. The most popular delegates to NOT make the semis were:

Georgia (54), Virginia (38), Nevada (36), Kansas (34), Arkansas (32), Washington (32), North Carolina (21), Delaware (19), Hawaii (18), and Iowa (17).

One final interesting tidbit is that USB’s Mock Miss USA results would have earned a total of 28 points, ranking in at 18th place in the competition. Not bad, USB! Not bad at all!

Thanks again to all of you for participating! As always, I had an absolute blast orchestrating the competition, and I hope you all enjoyed it as well. You’ll be hearing from me come Miss Universe time!!!
