Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS FLOOZIE!!!

With a one-point lead over her closest competitors, “Floozie” (Illinois, USA) wins the 2009 Miss USA Pageant Prediction Award! The first runner-up was “Duration & Convexity” (South Africa), and the second runner-up was “NUdoc13” (Illinois, USA). It is worth noting that not only are Floozie and NUdoc13 both from Illinois, but last year’s Miss USA winner, “Buffy,” was also from Illinois. Apparently, there’s something psychic in the water near the Windy City! It’s also worth noting that NUdoc13 is a first-time Pageant Predictions entrant, proving that even the newbies can rise to the top!

Floozie’s win came with an impressive score of 38, followed very closely by her two runners-up, who tied with 37 points each. After implementing our tie-breaking procedure as outlined in the rules/scoring section of the Pageant Predictions web site, Duration & Convexity won the tie and was edged out NUdoc13 for the first runner-up position.

The chart at the bottom of this page lists each entrant’s score and rank. Keep in mind that since Miss USA is the first of MUO’s three pageants for 2009, the scores earned are one-third 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 PageantFanMA finished 64th during Miss USA, but still managed to land at 8th place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!). Will Floozie hold on to the lead and claim this year's title? Will HuskerFan become the first back-to-back Predictor of the Year? Will "I Heart Pageants" come back and reclaim her 2007 title? We'll all have to wait and see...

Floozie’s winning list included: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia. Therefore, Floozie scored 38 points (a new Miss USA record) by correctly predicting 13 of the top 15 semifinalists, and all 10 of the top 10 finalists! Buffy did make a slight error in predicting that Miss Tennessee would take the crown, but in her defense, not a single participant correctly predicted that North Carolina would be crowned Miss USA!

Of the 168 registered participants, 85 submitted their predictions for Miss USA, a record for Pageant Predictions, and an 18-percent increase over last year’s Miss USA competition (YAY!). The registered participants represent 40 states and 14 countries, including 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:

Arizona (49), Arkansas (59), California (78), Connecticut (9), Georgia (40), Idaho (4), Kentucky (42), Minnesota (34), North Carolina (69), South Carolina (62), Tennessee (73), Texas (66), Utah (64), Virginia (36), and West Virginia (43).

While almost all the participants had California on their lists (78 out of 85), only four participants predicted Idaho would make the semis. The most popular delegates to NOT make the semis were:

Hawaii (75), Florida (56), Vermont (45), Rhode Island (41), New York (36), Kansas (31), Louisiana (26), Nebraska (21), District of Columbia (21), and Maine (19).

As previously noted, no one correctly predicted that North Carolina would take the title. Among the 85 participants, 23 different delegates were predicted to take the crown, including Alabama (1), Arizona (2), Arkansas (5), California (25), Florida (1), Georgia (1), Hawaii (10), Illinois (1), Maryland (1), Massachusetts (1), Minnesota (1), Nebraska (1), New Jersey (1), New York (1), North Dakota (1), South Carolina (2), South Dakota (1), Tennessee (17), Texas (1), Utah (5), Vermont (1), Virginia (1), and West Virginia (4).

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 Teen USA approaches this July!
