Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS THEO!!!

Miss Universe made history this year, with Venezuela claiming the pageant’s first ever back-to-back victory. But Venezuela wasn’t the only history maker on pageant night. Pageant Predictions made a little history of its own, with a record-breaking 203 registrants and 102 participants! That’s a nearly 25-percent increase since 2008! All told, those entrants represent 41 U.S. states and 14 foreign countries.

When the scores were tallied, four predictors earned 32 points or more, including Lonestar, NC GAL, Pfeffer, and Theo. Pfeffer and NC GAL tied with 32 points apiece, but since neither of them predicted Venezuela as the winner and NC GAL submitted her list first, she claimed the coveted second runner-up spot. First-time predictor Lonestar took the first runner-up position with an impressive 33 points. And it was Cape Town, South Africa’s Theo that took the top prize with a score of 35 points. (Full results are at the bottom of the page.)

Some interesting tidbits: The 20 most popular countries were USA (99 lists), Dominican Republic (91 lists), Australia (90 lists), Czech Republic (84 lists), Mexico (75 lists), France (70 lists), Russia (69 lists), Netherlands (64 lists), Venezuela (64 lists), Puerto Rico (61 lists), Spain (48 lists), South Africa (47 lists), Ireland (42 lists), Guatemala (40 lists), Iceland (40 lists), Hungary (39 lists), Great Britain (36 lists), Colombia (33 lists), Belgium (31 lists), and Honduras (31 lists).

Only eight participants had Albania on their lists, and only one (arthurmaranha/VINO) had Croatia on his list. Surprisingly, only two participants (DataAlt and the aptly named “History Repeats”) correctly predicted that Venezuela would take the crown. On the other hand, 23 predicted Dominican Republic would be named Miss Universe.

Theo’s winning list included: Australia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, France, Honduras, Hungary, Kosovo, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, USA, and Venezuela.

Lonestar’s first-runner-up list included: Australia, Czech Republic, Guatemala, Japan, Kosovo, Mexico, Paraguay, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, South Africa, Switzerland, USA, and Venezuela.

It’s worth noting that Lonestar was not only a first-time participant, but was also the first predictor to submit his list. WAY TO GO! Another first-timer, “gaj,” found his way into the top ten, finishing in 8th place.

As the final MUO pageant of the year, these scores are added to the ones from Miss USA and Miss Teen USA, completing the 2009 Predictor of the Year competition. To see who came out on top and claimed this year’s coveted title (not to mention a pretty impressive trophy and some serious bragging rights), click the 2009 PREDICTOR OF THE YEAR link in the navigation bar at the right.

Once again, thanks 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! I can’t wait to start all over again in 2010!
