Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS HUSKERFAN!!!

Moments after the incredible Alyssa Campanella took her final walk as Miss USA 2011, Olivia Culpo was crowned and Pageant Predictions began tabulating the results of our Miss USA predictions competition (well, after several gallons of vodka and some partying with Shanna Moakler and Chelsi Smith)!

Once the numbers were crunched (and Sheena-gate stopped dominating the message boards), we were left with our own top 16, all earning 34 points or more for their predictions. That’s remarkable, considering that Annie_NH won the 2011 Miss USA predictions competition with a score of 33. Of those 16 impressive predictors, six of them scored more than 35 points:

·         Athalia (The Netherlands)

·         HakiSak (South Carolina, USA)

·         HuskerFan (Iowa, USA)

·         MSgal (Mississippi, USA)

·         Pumpkin Pie (Connecticut, USA)

·         TNBoy (Tennessee, USA)

All but one of them accumulated 36 points, and that five-way tie was broken based on when each predictor submitted his/her list. But one stood out from all the others, with a two-point lead and tying Floozie’s Miss USA record of 38 points set in 2009.

Fifth runner-up is HakiSak (36 points, and the 126th person to submit). Fourth runner-up is Pumpkin Pie (36 points, and the 98th person to submit). And third runner-up is TNBoy (36 points, and the 87th person to sumbit). That leaves us with a top three of Athalia, HuskerFan, and MSgal.

Second runner-up is MSgal, who earned 36 points and was the 83rd person to submit.

First runner-up is Athalia, who earned 36 points and was the 79th person to submit.

And our 2012 Miss USA predictions award goes to HuskerFan, who earned a whopping 38 points and was the 97th person to submit her predictions!

If HuskerFan’s handle sounds familiar, it’s because she is no stranger to Pageant Predictions. In fact, she won the 2008 Miss Universe predictions competition and was named the 2008 Predictor of the Year! Is she laying the groundwork for a repeat victory, becoming our first ever two-time Predictor of the Year?

It’s worth noting that TNBoy has earned a spot in the top ten for the past four consecutive Miss USA pageants! Additionally, LadyRee made the top ten for the second consecutive Miss USA pageant, and Samuel made the top 15 for the second year in a row.

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 2012, the scores earned are one-third of your cumulative score which will ultimately determine the 2012 Predictor of the Year! But if you didn’t hit the top of the leader board this time around, have no fear. Last year, NUdoc13 finished 64th during Miss USA, but still managed to land at 7th place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!).

Melx and Maverick, both newcomers to Pageant Predictions, managed to crack the top 15. Was it beginner’s luck? Or will one of them go on to take the 2012 Predictor of the Year title? We’ll just have to wait and find out, because we have two more MUO pageants this year, and it’s still anyone’s trophy to win – especially considering that 71 contestants are within 10 points of our current leader!

The winning predictions list, submitted by HuskerFan, included: Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Texas. Therefore, she scored 38 points by correctly predicting 13 of the top 16 contestants — AND ALL TEN OF THE TOP 10!

Of the 358 registered participants, 132 submitted their predictions for Miss USA. The registered participants represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and more than 25 countries, including Greece, Brazil, Sweden, South Africa, Chile, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hungary, Germany, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, the United Kingdom, Japan, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, Belgium, India, Indonesia, Australia, Colombia, the Philippines, the Netherlands, and the United States.

Here is a run-down of how many participants had each of the top 16 on their predictions lists:

Alabama (102), Arkansas (10), Colorado (26), Georgia (112), Louisiana (91), Maine (35), Maryland (81), Michigan (97), Nevada (96), New Jersey (68), Ohio (91), Oklahoma (38), Rhode Island (95), South Carolina (40), Tennessee (42), and Texas (115).

While more than 100 predictors had Alabama, Georgia, and Texas on their lists, only 10 participants predicted Arkansas (who won the people's choice vote) would make the cut, and only 26 thought Colorado would get the call - and she ended up making it all the way to the top 10. The most popular delegates to NOT make the top 16 were:

California (104), South Dakota (74), Delaware (73), Illinois (72), Virginia (61), Connecticut (47), New Mexico (47), Indiana (44), Utah (42), Arizona (40), Alaska (34), Kentucky (32), and New York (32).

While 95 people thought Rhode Island would make the top 16, only five correctly predicted Olivia would take the crown: Dragon, kyboi, MissNadia, Mome, and tatan0491. All told, 29 different delegates had at least one participant predicting they would win the title, which just goes to show that beauty is subjective! Among the most popular were Georgia (26), Nevada (18), Texas (13), Ohio (12), Michigan (8), Alabama (7), and South Dakota (5). Furthermore, every single delegate was predicted by at least six participants to make the top 16 — a testament to the quality of the 2012 class.

A final note: Had USB’s Mock Miss USA results been scored, they would have received 32 points, tying for 29th place!

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 two more chances to earn points toward the 2012 Predictor of the Year title. Have fun, good luck, and sign the guestbook or visit Pageant Predictions on Facebook!
