Pageant Predictions


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

CONGRATULATIONS DCPAGEANTDUDE!!!

On June 5, 2016, Deshauna Barber won the District of Columbia its third Miss USA crown — and DCPageantDude won the District of Columbia its first Pageant Predictions award (with a two-point lead over his closest competitors). What’s more, DCPageantDude was the second predictor to submit his list, way back on on the morning of June 1, hours before the preliminary competition had begun. It’s also worth noting that DCPageantDude finished fourth in last year’s Miss USA predictions competition, and third in the 2014 Miss USA predictions competition. Bottom line, this guy knows his Miss USA stuff!

While DCPageantDude racked up 32 points, Scotty and Sia tied for second with 30 each. The tie was broken according to our tie-breaking criteria, with Scotty coming out on top as he submitted his list before Sia.

Rounding out our top 15 were wvbuckeye, MadeYaLook, Katie, and Top&Bottom with 29 points, followed by Mayhew82, NUdoc13, arianafan, CrowningGlory, Inoshishi, FattasticQueen, Leonard, and Charming, all with 28 points.

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 2016, 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, Joaquin finished 91st during Miss USA, but still managed to land at 12th place overall (NOT TOO SHABBY!). After all, only six points currently separates first place from 31st place, so it’s still anyone’s game!

The winning predictions list, submitted by DCPageantDude, included: Alabama, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Miss 52, earning a score of 32 points by correctly predicting nine of the top 15 contestants, eight of the top 10, and all five of the finalists!

More than 130 of our registered participants 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 15 on their predictions lists:

Alabama (38), Arizona (18), Arkansas (25), California (89), Connecticut (31), District of Columbia (63), Georgia (76), Hawaii (111), Missouri (59), Ohio (58), Oklahoma (41), South Carolina (89), South Dakota (49), Virginia (91), and West Virginia (17).

While more than 100 predictors had Hawaii on their lists, less than 20 participants correctly predicted that Arizona and West Virginia would make the cut. The most popular delegates to NOT make the top 20 were: Wisconsin (104), Texas (98), Miss 52 (92), Colorado (91), Nevada (80), Maryland (71), Michigan (68), Florida (48), New Jersey (45), and Idaho (42).

Only three people correctly predicted DC would take the crown: GMAN, HasBeenQueenie, and littlelamb3. All told, 26 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 Hawaii (29), Wisconsin (14), Ohio (11), Texas (10), Colorado (8), California (7), Miss 52 (7), Virginia (7), South Dakota (6), Georgia (5), Michigan (5), and Missouri (5).

Once again, I took the liberty of scoring the results from USB’s Mock Miss USA competition, which would have only scored 14 points, tying for 99th 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 2016 Predictor of the Year title. Have fun, good luck, sign the guestbook, and follow Pageant Predictions on Facebook and Twitter (@PageantPredict)!
