    I liked Rhode Island's answer the best but Ohio did pretty good and Georgia was great too.
    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Good job Ohio - when asked to name a movie that shows women in a good light picks one where a prostitute changes her life by marrying a rich guy.

    I know. What was she supposed to say? "We're all stupid?"

    Hoping for Rhode Island to win simply because her question was the toughest and she nailed it.

    If I'm going on final question alone

    4th Runner Up - Nevada
    3rd Runner Up - Maryland
    2nd Runner Up - Ohio
    1st Runner Up - Georgia
    Miss USA 2012 - Rhode Island

    Rhode Island really handled a difficult question beautifully. Asshats in the crowd booing the question was classless.

    If Nevada does win I'll be ok with it because she's a stunner, but Georgia and Rhode Island really did have the best answers

    Well, Vivien did leave the rich guy and intend to go back to school and do something else with her life other than prostitution. He's the one who came back for her so that's not entirely her fault. I bet it was the first movie that popped into her head so she just went with it (I couldn't think of one and I was sitting here thinking about it while she answered), LOL

    I guess I missed the part where they asked for a specific example, so her trotting out Pretty Woman of all things just seemed incredibly random to me.

    Given Miss USA's recent experience at the Miss Universe pageant, they should pick the one best able to walk down stairs without falling.

    I loved Rhode Island dancing there when Akon was with them.

    Somebody has blown a lot of smoke up Miss Maryland's tuchus.

    Miss Rhode Island had a look of panic for 1/2 a second and then got it.

    Yeah, Marilu asked at the very end of her question for a specific example and to be honest, that part would have thrown me off a little too. We can always think of something when we're not standing in front of an auditorium of people with millions more watching on TV, LOL

    I think it's going to be Rhode Island. I won't be bummed out if Ohio pulls off the win but I'm impressed with RI's composure and by her answering a tough question so well.

    Really???

    Dern I missed the questions! Ever since the Miss Teen SC's geographically challenged answer years ago, it's my fav. part.

    What was RI's question?

    The reigning Miss USA doesn't even get to wear her crown as she says goodbye?! That's kind of sad.
