I'm mixed on the result-- I have been waiting for Miss USA to win again, but I think that Olivia was one of our weaker candidates in a while. Her gown was a great choice given the Christmas theme of the pageant and that she popped against the other finalists. She was good in all phases of the competition, but nothing was particularly amazing. I do think that she cheated a bit in swimsuit-- she was already down the steps when they called her name. The 'judging' didn't include her steps walk, which I think is super important.
Did anybody else notice how completely out of place Miss Denmark was? It was as if the poor girl had never put pumps on before. I was sad for Miss South Africa because she was the favorite, and I was even more sad for Miss Spain who didn't even make the top 16 and should be wearing the Miss Universe crown right now. (If not her, then Miss Hungary!!!)
