Miss USA Betting

The Miss USA pageant first took place in 1952. It was founded in conjunction with the Miss Universe pageant after Miss America winner Yolande Betbeze refused to wear a swimsuit in photographs that were supposed to be used by sponsors in advertisements. Since its founding, Miss USA and Miss Universe have run hand in hand with one another, and the winner of Miss USA goes on to represent the United States at Miss Universe.

Miss USA Overview

The Miss USA pageant features representatives from all 50 states as well as Washington D.C. A week prior to the actual pageant debuting, all 51 contestants are judged in the three phases of the Miss USA competition. These mediums include the swimsuit competition, the evening gown competition, and personal interviews.

Shortly after all 51 contestants take their place on the stage, the field is narrowed down substantially. The judges only name 15 semifinalists who then move on to create in the swimsuit round. From there, the field is narrowed down to 10 women who will take part in the evening gown portion of the contest, and only three women reach the finals. Those three women are given interview questions by the judges, and that is the final test before crowning Miss USA.

In order to qualify to be in the Miss USA pageant, women have to be between the ages of 18 and 28. Additionally, they cannot be married or have ever been married, and they cannot have children either. Also, contestants need  to have entered in and won their local and state pageant.

*Also won Miss Universe

Texas has been the most successful state in the Miss USA pageant by a wide margin. Nine women from Texas have taken the tiara, and the Lone Star State saw an unprecedented five straight women win the title in the late 1980s.

The two most successful states in the 21st Century are North Carolina and the District of Columbia. North Carolina claims the most recent pageant winner in Cheslie Kryst, while DC has fared extremely well despite its small size.

There are still a dozen or so states that have yet to see a winner in the Miss USA pageant. Florida, Georgia, Colorado, Oregon, and New Jersey are among the states to not have an outright winner of the title.
