Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS INTHEKNOW!!!

On June 8, 2014, Nia Sanchez became Nevada’s very first Miss USA! An early front runner and the winner of USB’s Mock Miss USA judging, Nia was the second most-predicted contestant to take the crown.

After the pageant ended and the #TeamNevada celebration died down, we tallied the scores to see who came out on top of our Miss USA predictions competition and the current Predictor of the Year race.

Because of MUO’s decision to call 20 delegates into the semis (and a top six into the finals), every predictor’s odds increased, which led to a higher number of ties throughout the leaderboard. In fact, we had a nine-way tie for second place. To break that tie, we first looked to see if any of those nine participants had correctly predicted that Nevada would win the crown. Next, we looked to see who had submitted their lists the soonest. And once the tie was broken, we were left with a top three: DCPageantDude, Intheknow, and LEE.

Our second runner-up, with a total of 38 points, is DCPageantDude (Maryland, USA). And our first runner-up, also with a total of 38 points, is LEE (South Dakota, USA)! LEE won the tie-breaker because she was the only one out of the nine who predicted Nevada’s win. DCPageantDude finished right behind her, as he had submitted his predictions the soonest. He was actually the fifth person out of the entire competition to send in his list.

The winner of our 2014 Miss USA predictions competition, then, is Intheknow (California, USA) with a score of 39 points. He submitted his predictions on June 4, and was the 31st person to send in his list.

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 2014, the scores earned are one-third of your cumulative score which will ultimately determine the Predictor of the Year! But if you didn’t hit the top of the leader board this time around, have no fear. Last year, HasBeenQueenie finished 60th during Miss USA, but still managed to land at 13th place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!). After all, only five points currently separates first place from 72nd, so it’s still anyone’s game!

It’s worth noting that Intheknow is a first-time participant, along with two other first timers who made the top ten: DCPageantDude and Whiteknight, who finished third and fifth, respectively. Was it beginners’ luck? Or will one of these three newcomers claim the Predictor of the Year trophy for 2014? We’ll just have to wait and find out.

The winning predictions list, submitted by Intheknow, included: Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah, earning a score of 39 points by correctly predicting 13 of the top 16 contestants, nine of the top 10 — AND ALL OF THE TOP 6!

Of the 425 registered participants, 156 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 20 on their predictions lists:

Alabama (124), Arizona (32), California (134), Florida (133), Georgia (129), Indiana (27), Iowa (28), Louisiana (115), Maryland (48), Minnesota (117), Nebraska (17), Nevada (130), New Jersey (32), North Dakota (115), Oklahoma (87), Pennsylvania (41), South Carolina (126), Tennessee (101), Virginia (18), and Wisconsin (61).

While more than 100 predictors had Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina, and Tennessee on their lists, only 18 participants predicted Virginia would make the cut, and only 17 thought Nebraska would get the call. The most popular delegates to NOT make the top 20 were: Utah (122), Texas (93), New York (80), Hawaii (78), and Illinois (67).

Twenty-two people correctly predicted Nevada would take the crown. All told, 31 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 Florida (29), Nevada (22), North Dakota (15), California (14), Georgia (13), and South Carolina (12). Furthermore, every single delegate was predicted by at least four participants to make the top 20 — a testament to the quality of the 2014 class.

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 2014 Predictor of the Year title. Have fun, good luck, sign the guestbook, and follow Pageant Predictions on Facebook and Twitter (@PageantPredict)!
