Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS SUCKER4SILVERGOWNS!!!

On Sunday, January 25, Colombia claimed its first Miss Universe crown in 56 years, and our very own Miss USA made the host venue proud by coming in as first runner-up. And coincidentally, when we tallied the scores in our Pageant Predictions competition, the first runner-up in the 2014 Mr. USB competition emerged from a three-way tie to claim the top spot.

SeminoleNation of the USA, razorback1/inoshishi of Japan, and sucker4silvergowns of Canada all tied with a total of 37 points, and since none of them correctly predicted that Colombia would take the crown, we went to our second tie-breaking criteria, and the participant who submitted his/her list first emerged from the tie victorious. Since sucker4silvergowns was the 41st predictor to submit his list (compared to razorback1/inoshishi and SeminoleNation, who were 57th and 115th, respectively), he claimed Pageant Predictions victory.

Rounding out the top fifteen were Onixana, Leonard, Annie_NH, Randall/Porsche, and MSgal all with 36 points, followed by Lifelong Fan, PGMomma, Fra, Carlitos, tonyusb, Miss Understood, and Duration & Convexity with 35.

It’s worth noting that while razorback1/inoshishi and sucker4silvergowns are Pageant Predictions veterans, this marked SeminoleNation’s first foray into the competition! Pretty good for a first timer, huh?

The most-predicted semifinalist was Miss USA, appearing on 131 predictors’ lists, followed by Venezuela who appeared on 108 lists. Colombia was on 105 lists, Spain was on 104, France was on 99, India was on 97, Australia was on 93, Philippines was on 92, and Ukraine was on 87. Argentina appeared on 78 lists, Jamaica was on 68, and Brazil was on 45. The three most surprising semifinalists, based on participants’ predictions, were Netherlands (who only appeared on 37 lists, but managed to finish as 3rd runner-up), Italy (who only appeared on 21 lists), and Indonesia (who only appeared on 20 lists).

The most-predicted delegate to not make the semis was Costa Rica, who was on 73 lists. Other popular delegates to not make the semis included: Guyana (64 lists), Dominican Republic (61 lists), Mexico (60 lists), South Africa (55 lists), Russia (54 lists), Puerto Rico (51 lists), Lithuania (47 lists), Ecuador (46 lists), and Serbia (28 lists).

Out of the 137 people who submitted their predictions for Miss Universe, only eight correctly guessed that Colombia would take the crown: Onixana, Leonard, Fra, Athalia, NovR, Whiteknight, NRGenca, and Dat Mexican. For the second year in a row, Spain was the unprecedented frontrunner, with 26 predictors expecting her to win the pageant. Additionally, 22 predictors thought USA would win, 10 thought France would be the last woman standing, nine expected Philippines to take the title, and eight predicted a Ukrainian victory.

Sucker4silvergowns’ winning list included: Argentina, Australia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Guyana, Jamaica, Netherlands, Philippines, Spain, Ukraine, USA, and Venezuela. While sucker4silvergowns incorrectly predicted that Spain would win Miss Universe, he impressively predicted 11 of the top 15 semifinalists, including all of the top-ten finalists!

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 32 points tying for 38th place.

As the final MUO pageant of the season, these scores have been added to the ones from Miss USA and Miss Teen USA, completing the 2014 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 2014, and click on 2014 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 2015!
