I think this year's Miss USA Pageant is just okay, EXACTLY the same format as last year, not too many new things. Most of the top 15 are very deserving in my opinion, especially the swimsuit competition, the top 10 looked great except for Georgia. My favorite was Tennessee and Missouri, though I was leaning towards Tennessee. Tennessee's answers weren't good enough, but at least the winner is selected based on the whole package, not just looks. I couldn't believe Tennessee placed fifth, Oklahoma was even worse! Justin Timberlake in Miss USA, not a very good answer.
I think Shandi will do very well at the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant, probably top 5.
