On August 22, 2015, Louisiana claimed its second Miss Teen USA title. And when the pageant was over, 11 predictors had achieved an impressive score of more than 35 points, including: AndjoSant, gaj, hamontsuji, HasBeenQueenie, Inoshishi, Joaquin, MSgal, NewYorkGuy, PGMomma, RickyD, and UberClaire.
Seven of them were locked in a tie for fifth place, with 36.5 points apiece. But only one had correctly predicted that Louisianas Katherine Haik would take the title. That meant PGMomma won the tie breaker, finishing in fifth place, while the other six were ranked sixth through 11th, based on when they submitted their predictions.
That left us with four predictors who had all earned 38 points: HasBeenQueenie, Inoshishi, MSgal, and UberClaire. But since MSgal was the only one of the four who correctly predicted a Louisiana victory, she won the tie and came out on top, followed by Inoshishi in second place, UberClaire in third, and HasBeenQueenie in fourth.
Its worth noting that MSgal, who was the 143rd participant to submit her predictions, won the Predictor of the Year title in 2012. Following a 28th-place finish at Miss USA this year, her win puts her in a position to possibly be the first participant ever to win two Predictor of the Year trophies!
The chart at the bottom of this page lists each entrants score and rank for the Miss Teen USA predictions competition. Keep in mind that since Miss Teen USA is the second of MUOs three pageants for 2015, the scores earned represent the second third of your cumulative score which will ultimately determine the 2015 Predictor of the Year! Harley, Inoshishi, MSgal, and UberClaire are currently in a four-way tie for the title of 2015 title.

If you didnt hit the top of the leader board this time around, have no fear. Last year, sucker4silvergowns finished 61st during Miss Teen USA, but still managed to land at 28th place overall. Will one of the four participants currently tied for first end up on top? Will AndjoSant come up from fifth place and take the title? Will Onixana (who has finished in the top 10 for four consecutive years) make a major comeback at Miss Universe and finally claim the trophy? Or will someone else top our leaderboard? Well just have to wait and find out!
The winning predictions list, submitted by MSgal included: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Vermont. That means she correctly predicted 13 of the top 15 semifinalists, including all five of the top five finalists!
Of the more than 400 registered participants, 148 submitted their predictions for Miss Teen USA. 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 (33), Arizona (118), Arkansas (72), California (125), Louisiana (127), Massachusetts (51), Missouri (67), New York (28), North Carolina (94), Oklahoma (108), Pennsylvania (97), South Carolina (104), Tennessee (114), Texas (118), Vermont (79).
Im happy to report that every single delegate had at least three people predict theyd make the cut. Thats 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: Kentucky (114), Nevada (88), Georgia (79), Ohio (64), Florida (59), Maryland (53), Utah (49), Michigan (41), Colorado (38), and Minnesota (38).
Nineteen participants correctly predicted that Louisiana would take the crown. But among the 148 participants, 38 different delegates were predicted by at least one person to win the pageant. The most popular were Kentucky (14), Texas (10), Pennsylvania (9), Vermont (9), California (7), Nevada (7), Oklahoma (7), South Carolina (7), Tennessee (7), and Missouri (6).
The three biggest surprises of the night were New York making the semis (since only 28 people predicted shed make the cut), Texas not making the top five (as 118 people expected her to make the semis and 10 predicted shed win), and of course Kentucky missing the semifinals (as she was the most-predicted contestant to NOT make the cut, the second most-predicted winner, and USBs Mock Miss Teen USA).
Its worth noting that if USBs Mock Miss Teen USA results had been scored, the board would have tied for 11th place overall, with a total of 35 points.
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. Dont forget, you have one more chance to earn points toward the 2015 Predictor of the Year title. Have fun, and GOOD LUCK!
