I am not using hyperbole or trying to be dramatic when I say that this year is going to be TOUGH at 2013 Miss USA Pageant. There are so many solid competitors; it blows me away. Unlike last year, I think there is a wildly strong pool of blondes which we haven’t seen in a while (think Kristen Dalton, Candice Crawford, and Carrie Prejean). Just like last year (when I gave mad props to winner Olivia Culpo before her big win by naming her my top pick for best online interview and best eyebrows LoL), I studied the headshots that are currently up on the Miss USA website. I looked at the contestants once and listed my top favorites on a sheet of paper (there were only 12). Then I looked at the list a second time on another day and listed my favorites again. The lists matched. I had my top picks.
Without further ado and in alphabetical order, the girls I think will rock that Vegas stage at Planet Hollywood on June 16, 2013 are listed below. DISCLAIMER: I usually edit my list after seeing Fadil’s photos of the girls right before the pageant and usually I tweak it once more after seeing the girls actually walk the stage. STAGE PRESENCE CAN MAKE OR BREAK!
Allie’s Top 12 Miss USA Picks
Alabama: Alabama, I nominate you for my best hair award. Girl, you’ve got an amazing mane. I love it.
Kentucky: Oh hey there wild cat! Her photo stands out for sure. It’s almost too edgy, but I like that about her. Put yourself out there girlfriend! I feel like she and Tennessee may have used the same photographer. Fierce.
Maryland: This is our hometown girl. The Pageant Professor team all met at Miss Maryland USA so we always have a special place for our Maryland girls (we love you Nana!)…and let’s face it; they are GORGEOUS. Kasey is a bright shining star and she will kill it in interview. We love her and her sister Lindsay who is also an amazing pageant diva.
Nevada: I loved Nevada last year and I love her again this year. Nevada always seems to bring some serious smolder and sex appeal. Nevada, you also win my best eyes award. Go ahead, girl. Can’t wait to see how new director Shanna Moakler has worked her magic in Nevada.
My top 5 gals at this point are: FL, KY, NV, UT, and MD
See you in Vegas!
