Nick Jonas!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! OMG!!

I think Planet Hollywood and Miss Trump-Universe have a sweetheart deal for the pageant. Probably all those casinos losers get a free ticket to pageant after dropping $100,000 at the slots or at the tables!! :lol:

Miss America used to be held at Planet Hollywood from 2006-2013 and will be back in Atlantic City for its next edition. I guess simply cities aren't lining up to host the event.

Yup. I like Maryland. But I'm leaning towards Louisiana. She seems to have the overall package. I hope her walk is good. US beauty queens are known for their bad walks.

Talking bout bad walks... Miss USA tripped and still won miss Universe . And honestly I think she was "favorited" as an American and event held in America. But it's not as bad as Venezuela winning, I'm really tired of countries like that and Philippines digging so deep to find the perfect woman it loses the interest and naturality for Me. If Ms.Venezuela didn't mess up on the answer she would have won easily tho

Miss USA have been among the tops in recent years I believe (?)

USA's win last year was their first since 1997. Since winning the crown in 1997 USA missed the in 1999, 2002 and 2010. Prior to 1999, the only time they missed was in 1976, yet several Miss USA's should've missed the cut after 1976. USA 2012 was good during Miss USA, sadly she didn't have the same spark at Miss Universe as compared to when she won Miss USA. Venezuela, Philippines and Australia really outperformed her. Venezuela despite a botched Q&A still ended up placing high and mioght've won had used an interpreter. Philippines did everything right.
