Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS ELIN!!!

On July 28, 2012, Connecticut claimed its first Miss Teen USA title, and one of our pageant predictors tied a three-year-old record for the highest point total at TUSA.

When the pageant was over, seven predictors had achieved a score of more than 29 points, including: Ciao500, ClickyRicky, Duration & Convexity, Elin, HasBeenQueenie, MoNkayMaN, and MSgal. Five of them were locked in a tie for third place, with 29.5 points apiece. The tie was broken, and HasBeenQueenie of Illinois claimed the second runner-up position since she correctly predicted Logan West would take the crown and was the 42nd participant to submit her predictions.

That left two still in the running for the 2012 Miss Teen USA Pageant Predictions Award: Ciao500 from Washington, and Elin from Edsbyn, Sweden. With a three-point lead, and tying the record for most points earned at Miss Teen USA, the winner is Elin!

Elin was the 55th participant to submit her predictions and ties JulieSP’s record from 2009, with a whopping 34 points. That puts Elin in the lead for the 2012 Predictor of the Year Award (by a narrow margin of 0.5 points). It’s worth noting that JulieSP/LatinBr finished 13th for this year’s Miss Teen USA pageant! With 31 points, Ciao500 finished in second place.

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 2012, the scores earned represent the second third of your cumulative score which will ultimately determine the 2012 Predictor of the Year! (To see the current standings, click the 2012 Predictor of the Year link in the upper right corner of this page.)

If you didn’t hit the top of the leader board this time around, have no fear. Last year, Onixana finished 36th during Miss Teen USA, but still managed to land at 2nd place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!). Will Elin (who finished a disappointing 43rd in last year’s competition) hold on to her lead and claim this year's title? Will Duration & Convexity (who has finished in the top 15 for four consecutive years) overcome the 2.5-point difference and be named the 2012 Predictor of the Year? Will HuskerFan (currently in 5th place) come up from behind and be the first participant to win two Predictor of the Year titles? We'll all have to wait and see...

The winning predictions list, submitted by Elin included: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin. Therefore, she scored 34 points by correctly predicting 11 of the top 16 semifinalists, and all five of the top five finalists.

Of the 358 registered participants, 108 submitted their predictions for Miss Teen USA, a 116-percent increase since our first Miss Teen USA competition in 2007. (YAY!) The registered participants represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and more than 25 countries, including Greece, Brazil, South Africa, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, United Kingdom, Japan, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, Belgium, Indonesia, Australia, and more.

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

Alabama (42), Connecticut (78), Georgia (44), Hawaii (15), Illinois (44), Kansas (34), Michigan (68), New Mexico (20), New York (35), North Carolina (66), Ohio (27), Oklahoma (53), South Carolina (52), Utah (85), West Virginia (68), Wyoming (26).

I’m happy to report that every single delegate had at least two people predict they’d make the cut. That’s a testament to both the quality of the contestants and the wildly unpredictable nature of Miss Teen USA. The 10 most popular delegates who did NOT make the semis were:

Texas (86), Idaho (80), Arizona (72), Delaware (71), Florida (68), New Jersey (68), Nebraska (66), Nevada (61), Wisconsin (51), and California (45).

Nine participants correctly predicted that Connecticut would take the title. Among the 108 participants, 32 different delegates were predicted to take the crown. The most popular were Utah (15), Idaho (11), Connecticut (9), West Virginia (9), Michigan (7), New Jersey (6), Delaware (5), Arizona (4), and South Carolina (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. Don’t forget, you have one more chance to earn points toward the 2012 Predictor of the Year title. Have fun, and GOOD LUCK!
