Pageant Predictions

CONGRATS JULIESP!!!

With a 1.5-point lead over her closest competitors, “JulieSP” (Sao Paulo, Brazil) wins the 2009 Miss Teen USA Pageant Prediction Award! The first runner-up was “LainieMich6,” and the second runner-up was “diddy.” It is worth noting that this is only the second time someone outside the United States has won a Pageant Prediction Award (“Freud” from Ontario, Canada, was the first when he won the 2007 Miss Universe Pageant Predictions competition). It’s also worth noting that five of the top-15 finishers were first-time participants, including second runner-up, diddy.

JulieSP’s win came with an impressive score of 34, followed closely by a four-way tie for first runner-up. LainieMich6, diddy, P A and Indiana Chick all received 32.5 points. But since none of them correctly predicted Miss Tennessee as the winner, the tie was broken based on who submitted his or her list first. LainieMich6 was the ninth entrant to submit her list, so she advanced to the first runner-up position, followed by diddy who was the 19th entrant to submit, P A who was 48th, and Indiana Chick who was 58th.

Normally, in accordance with our scoring procedures, each entrant would receive one point for all delegates that finished in 11th through 15th place, and two points for each member of the top 10 that did not advance into the top 5. But since the Miss Universe Organization again decided to cut from 15 directly to 5, with no top 10, we decided to award each entrant 1.5 points for every delegate who made the top 15 but not the top five.  

The chart at the bottom of this page lists each entrant’s score and rank. Keep in mind that since Miss Teen USA is the second of MUO’s three pageants for 2009, the scores are combined with those from Miss USA and make up two-thirds of your cumulative score which will ultimately determine the 2009 Predictor of the Year! But, if you didn’t hit the top of the leader board this time around, have no fear. Last year “Buffy” finished 30th during Miss Teen USA, but still managed to land at 2nd place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!).

With only the Miss Universe pageant remaining, the current leader in the 2009 Predictor of the Year competition is “NUdoc13” with 68 points, followed by “P A” with 67.5 points. Will NUdoc13 hold on to the lead and claim this year's title? Will P A claim the lead? Will 2007 Predictor of the Year, “I Heart Pageants” (currently in 10th place) reclaim her title and become the first two-time Predictor of the Year? Will Qban (currently in 9th) finally claim the title? Or will someone else rise to the top and take the year’s most coveted title? We’ll just have to wait and see!

JulieSP’s winning list included: Arkansas, California, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wyoming. Therefore, she scored 34 points (a new Miss Teen USA record) by correctly predicting 11 of the top 15 semifinalists, and all 5 of the top 5 finalists! JulieSP did make a slight error in predicting that Miss California would take the crown, but in her defense, only eight participants correctly predicted that Tennessee would be crowned Miss Teen USA!

Of the 189 registered participants, 82 submitted their predictions for Miss Teen USA, a 17-percent increase over last year’s Miss Teen USA competition (YAY!). The registered participants represent 40 states and 14 countries, including Australia, Greece, Brazil, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, United Kingdom, Japan, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, and the United States.

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

Arkansas (43), California (71), Georgia (66), Kentucky (19), Louisiana (34), Maryland (54), Michigan (55), Missouri (14), Nevada (48), Ohio (45), Rhode Island (40), Tennessee (68), Utah (41), Washington (8), and Wyoming (19).

While almost all the participants had California on their lists (71 out of 82), only eight participants predicted Washington would make the semis. The most popular delegates to NOT make the semis were:

South Carolina (51), Delaware (49), New York (33), New Jersey (32), Illinois (28), Virginia (27), Iowa (26), Texas (24), Connecticut (24), and Kansas (24).

As previously noted, only eight participants predicted that Tennessee would take the title. Among the 82 participants, 26 different delegates were predicted to take the crown, including Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

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 again as Miss Universe approaches this month!
