Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS RAFFYOB!!!

Just as Pageant Predictions ended its seventh season, Venezuela claimed its seventh Miss Universe title. But before the crown even had a chance to fall off Maria Gabriela Isler’s head, we were busy tallying predictors’ scores to see who had come out on top.

Eight participants managed to score at least 33 points, including six predictors from the USA, one from Brazil, and another from the Philippines. Four of them finished just below our leaders with 33 points each, including ruthra/DUDA (Minas Gerais, Brazil), TRTW (Nevada, USA), HasBeenQueenie (Illinois, USA), and CopyCat (Minnesota, USA). Two predictors, claiming the second- and third-runner-up positions, respectively, scored an impressive 34 points: Qban (Florida, USA) and HuskerFan (Iowa, USA). That left us with two predictors who both scored 35 points. Since neither of them predicted a Venezuelan victory, the tie was broken based on who submitted his/her predictions first. That left GoldenBoy (Virginia, USA) as first runner-up, since he was the 82nd participant to submit his list. And raffyob (Manila, Philippines) won our 2013 Miss Universe predictions competition as the 17th person to submit.

Rounding out the top 12 predictors, who all earned at least 32 points, is MoNkayMaN (Minnesota, USA), MSgal (Mississippi, USA), mopageantgirl (Missouri, USA), and New York Guy (New York, USA). It’s worth noting that the highest-scoring participant to correctly predict that Venezuela would win Miss Universe was HakiSak (South Carolina, USA), who finished in 13th place overall.

Brazil was the most-predicted semifinalist, appearing on 103 lists. USA appeared on 101 lists, followed by Spain who appeared on 99 lists. Venezuela was on 98 lists, Puerto Rico on 88, Philippines on 85, Great Britain on 79, Ukraine on 77, and Dominican Republic on 61. India was on 41 lists, Switzerland was on 31, and Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Nicaragua all appeared on 22 lists apiece. China appeared on 19 lists, and Indonesia only appeared on 10 lists. However, despite a lot of fans who felt there were some big surprises in the semifinals this year, it appears the outcome was more predictable than in 2012 when four of the semifinalists appeared on six or fewer lists, including Hungary who was only on 4 lists, and Turkey who was only predicted to make the cut by two participants.

The most-predicted delegate to not make the semis was Israel, who was on 88 lists. Other popular delegates to not make the semis included: France (83 lists), Poland (79 lists), Russia (77 lists), Italy (69 lists), Bolivia (52 lists), Croatia (45 lists), Australia (34 lists), South Africa (30 lists), Czech Republic (28 lists), and Peru (27 lists).

Out of the 125 people who submitted their predictions for Miss Universe, only six correctly guessed that Miss Venezuela would take the crown: HakiSak, hope714, Vertically_Challenged, Rashid, Minnemania, and I’DaHo. Spain was the unprecedented frontrunner, with 21 predictors expecting her to take the title. Additionally, 16 predictors thought Great Britain would win, 12 thought Israel would be the last woman standing, and another 10 believed Ukraine would reign supreme.

Raffyob’s winning list included: Australia, Brazil, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Great Britain, Israel, Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine, USA, and Venezuela. While raffyob incorrectly predicted that Miss Philippines would be crowned, raffy impressively predicted 11 of the 16 semifinalists, including all of the top-five delegates and nine of the top ten.

As usual, I took the liberty of scoring the results of USB’s Mock Miss Universe competition. Collectively, USB would have earned a total of 31 points, tying for 14th 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 2013 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), hover over the PAST RESULTS tab, then hover over 2013, and click on 2013 FINAL RESULTS. Or simply visit

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 2014!
