    I probably won't watch but my favorites are Alabama, Arizona and Hawaii (I'm betting those are contacts, though).

    I would normally watch, but there are so many things coming on at the same time, that I'm not sure if I will get a chance.

    I just found out that Caroline Manzo is a judge. That might be interesting.

    Miss Hawaii is pretty, but the photos on line of her evening gown... not impressive.

    Connecticut had the most interesting gown in my view. :swoon:

    I have no idea what Misses California and Oklahoma were thinking in gown. Hot mess!!!

    Miss USA website (beware the eternal pop up ads :blah: ).

    Miss Kansas is scary. As is Miss Minnesota. I like Miss Indiana and Miss Utah but predict that Miss USA will not make it to the top 5 this year at Miss Universe.

    Miss California has Miss Universe written all over her. If she does not win this pageant, it will be a huge shame... she has everything she needs to compete well at Universe. BUT she has to compete well tonight. Miss South Carolina is a distant second place. The rest of them have to hope that these two don't live up to the moment in order to slip in for the win. But really, if one of these two women don't win, it's going to be a big coup. (Most of the experts agree with me.) Alyssa has a similar buzz about her that Shandi Finnessey had, and I would love to see a read head wear the crown!

    My favorites came in a clump: South Dakota, Texas, Utah.....California was very unique looking. I only saw head shots. Sounds like I need to go back and check out the gowns for a few laughs.

    Edited to say-I love Miss Connecticutt too!

    Go Ginger Cali Girl! :glamor: Been a while since we've had a Miss Universe, eh?

    Last year, Miss USA didn't even make the first cut, right? So Top "anything" would be an upgrade.

    Kudos to the Miss USA PTB for the far less tranny-slut-looking photos, this year.

    Really? I'll have to take your word for it, because this looks more like a "Dynasty" re-run than Miss Universe to me. :shuffle: She does have smokin' body in swimsuit though.

    I agree with you that the pageant is famous mostly for chicks with big boobs wearing tight swimsuits, and/or for being the pageant that contestants enter if they're too stupid for Miss America - but as long as Trump is in charge and is making money off it the way it is, it will never be interested in changing its image.

    I envy folks with red hair so it is Cali for me but I would love to see a woman with no plastic surgery and an Emma Watson hair style. Or an African-American that skips the weave and has a big, beautiful afro. Sunday nights are just too crowded: Game of Thrones, The Killing, Masterpiece Theatre/Mystery, the new sci-fi series with Noah from ER and then CBS moves The Good Wife to Sundays. What's a girl to do?

    Whoever did the makeup for those photos on the yahoo site needs to be taken to the woodshed :yikes: :scream:

    Some of the women are beautiful, while others have me going :huh: at their being in the running for Miss USA.

    Oh my, Miss Montana ... bless her leno heart. :slinkaway Curious, so I "had" to find another shot of this girl Sorry, but ... :lol:

    But, yeh Cyn, you're right about the make-up on those yahoo shots. Hard to see the girls behind the mannequin-worthy paint on their faces. At least there don't seem to be any this year who are, or perhaps once were, of the male species.

    My favs from the head shots: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Louisiana, Texas, and Utah.

    Some of these women look :eek: . The make-up is too harsh on them.

    Only a handful of those women are actually beautiful, imo. California is by far my fave.

    Miss USA isn't for women who are too stupid to be in Miss America. Miss America is for women who are too unattractive to be in Miss USA. There. I said it.

    Hawaii and Pennsylvania looked best to me.

    Every blonde looked dated.

    Juliana's legs look stupid, and why is she so tall?

    Not only that, they were yelling in extremely grating voices.

    I love Andy Cohen and his crossed eyes.

    California was less impressive in person. Whereas I thought many of them, like D.C., looked much better live.

    I normally like Kelly Osbourne, but these special commentators are bugging me.
