Miss USA 2013 Review: South Carolina - Wyoming

The 62nd Miss USA will be crowned on Sunday, June 16th at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. 51 delegates representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia will be competing for the crown. Last year’s winner Olivia Culpo from Rhode Island went on to win Miss Universe 2012, which meant that her runner-up, Nana Meriwether from Maryland inherited the Miss USA 2012 title. After 6 months of appearances alongside Culpo, South African born Meriwether will crown the next Miss USA this Sunday. The producers have promised changes which could shake up pageant but they will not reveal any details until the final telecast. There some really stunning girls competing for the Miss USA title. Let’s hope the best girl ends up with the Miss USA crown on her head. After observing the 51 delegates for the past three weeks, here is our final review:


KEY:

POSSIBLE WINNER - ******
POSSIBLE TOP 5 FINALIST - *****
POSSIBLE TOP 10 SEMI-FINALIST - ****
POSSIBLE TOP 16 QUARTER FINALIST - ***
UNLIKELY TO PLACE - **
HIGHLY UNLIKELY TO PLACE - *



SOUTH CAROLINA: MEGAN PINCKNEY *****

Megan has the face of a doll. I literally can’t stop staring at her face. I am concerned that she is a bit too teen-sy for Miss USA but if she doesn’t make the cut it will be a travesty. She is really, absolutely gorgeous. She was perhaps a tad demure during the prelims and I’d like her to turn up the heat if… NO, WHEN she gets called.

SOUTH DAKOTA: JESSICA ALBERS *

Jessica is not getting as much attention as her predecessor. I must say that she had a lot of stage presence on stage though and I really enjoyed her interview. Her chances of placing are still slim though.

TENNESSEE: BRENNA MADER ***

Tennessee’s Brenna Mader was absolutely vibrant on stage and she is actually more telegenic than photogenic. There are so many worthwhile contenders who could make the cut and she is definitely in the running for a top 16 slot. If she does make it, then I think that’s where the journey will end for her.

TEXAS: ALI NUGENT *****

Ali is so different from the girls Texas usually sends and I LOVE THAT. She’s been gaining a lot of fans in Vegas and many people feel that she could be in the top 5. I loved her evening gown. It was unique and different, just like her. If everything works in her favor on the final night she could definitely be one of the runners-up but I don’t see her winning.

UTAH: MARISSA POWELL ******

I had Marissa as the top pick of my first leaderboard before the girls arrived in Las Vegas. I always had her pegged as a contender but after the preliminaries, I feel that it’s really between her and Alabama. Marissa is ultra sexy and she is extremely beautiful. If Alabama doesn’t bring her A game, Utah will be there to grab the crown.

VERMONT: SARAH WESTBROOK **

Sarah is another pretty girl who just probably will not make the cut in a very competitive year. She did well in the preliminaries but I was not blown away. She represented her state really well though.

VIRGINIA: SHARON McANALLY ****

I never paid much attention to Miss Virginia USA until she took the stage by storm during the preliminaries. That was the first time she really grabbed my attention. Now I believe she could go all the way to the top 10. She’s sexy, class, and really well prepared. I’ll keep an eye on her.


WASHINGTON: CASSANDRA SEARLES **

Cassandra gained a lot of buzz for her performance in the evening gown round of the preliminaries. Fans around the world really loved her gown and her performance in it. A lot of people believe this could propel her to the top 16. I am not quite on that bandwagon but I loved her gown too.

WEST VIRGINIA: CHELSEA WELCH ***

Here’s another girl who could snatch one of the top 16 spots. She has everything it takes to do well. She is pretty, did well on stage, and she is well spoken. Will it be enough to grab a top 16 spot? We’ll have to wait and see!

WISCONSIN: CHRISSY ZAMORO **

Chrissy is really sexy and sultry. In a weaker year, she could probably have been included in the top 16 but I don’t think it will happen this year. There is something really interesting about her though.

WYOMING: COURTNEY GIFFORD *

Courtney has worked hard and improved a lot since she was crowned. I applaud her for overcoming a lot of obstacles in her life and being a positive role model.
