  1. Having reviewed the gowns again Mississippi’s has grown on me a little, though I still don’t like it. I actually now think Tennessee’s and Michigan’s are pretty awful along with Utah’s.

  2. I can’t understand why so many people like Utah’s gown, I would rate it as the 2nd worst gown, only Mississippi’s being worse. I loved Washington’s and Minnesota’s and I hope these two make the cut but I doubt it.

    • Suzannah ,really .. u dont like miss Utah’s dress… Mississippi is TOOOO much and trying TOOOO hard. Tennessee’s dress out dated. Colorado is 1990″s but really U DONT LIKE MISS UTAH’s Dress. Utah was in my top 6 along with Nevada , Connecticut, Alabama , Kansas , Georgia

  9. the best for me in evening giwn is miss minesota!so beauty in her red dress!
    for me miss usa : miss colorado!

  10. Minnesota is a clear standout. Virginia, Kentucky, New Jersey and Alabama round out my top five. However, I have been watching Miss Usa, Universe, World over 40 years now and without reservation I can say as a whole I don’t believe I have ever seen so many horrible gowns. There are a few attractive gowns, but the vast majority aren’t only hideous, THEY DON’T EVEN FIT. Who styled these ladies. NEVER and I mean NEVER in my 40 plus years watching these things have I seen so many ill fitting misguided gown choices in one competition. There have been bad choices down through time but TO NOT EVEN FIT? The state directors or whoever picked these gowns for the vast majority of these ladies should be shamed into apologizing to their contestants

  11. best evening gown is UTAH

  12. Did anyone notice the pineapple juice stain on Miss Hawaii’s gown? It was a hideous grown by the way! Hated it!

  13. My favs are Miss Colorado, Miss North Carolina and Miss South Carolina. I also like Miss Utah, Miss New Hampshire, Miss Alabama, Miss Washington, Miss Virginia and Miss West Virginia. Although there are more blonds, the darker haired women really stood out to me. My biggest surprise was MISS NORTH CAROLINA. I mean girl worked the dress and her body was well shaped. Before the prelims, I thought she was just a clapper! I also loved Miss Colorado’s dress! It was different and she worked. I loved Miss SC legs! Not to sound ugly but the overall winners of the night was the black girls. Those girls come to WIN the Miss USA title!

  21. 4MissUSA2013: AL FL GA HI LA MD NV NJ NC OK SC TN TX UT VA WV
    even though the competition remains strong, I think the 2013 Winner:
    Miss Georgia: as 13 of my 16 are from South, including Hawaii making
    15@Southern States2win: looking on USA map my semifinalists nearly
    all come from South and East US with Miss Georgia as my clear winner
    AND MY TOP 7: AL+GA and NC+SC and OK+TX. Old South AND Deep
    South: 6 out of my 7 potential 2013 Finalists from South: only UT is not.

  22. Mecy Omni, 24, USA! says:

    ALABAMA
    NEW JERSEY
    KENTUCKY
    LOUISIANA
    VERMONT

  23. My TOP10: AL GA MD NV NJ NC OK SC TX UT as I thus have in my TOP10
    2 Blondes, 3 Blacks, 5 Brunettes: and as I can’t choose – at least not RIGHT
    NOW: not among them as a group nor among them in seperate groups. I
    in my Top: AL GA MD NV NJ NC OK SC TX UT as I thus have in my TOP10
    7 from South and (so) 3 from North

  24. I think Texas and I go4TX in my Top10: AL GA MD NV NJ NC OK SC TX UT

    • New Jersey

  25. AL GA MD NV NJ NC OK SC UT: I give my 10th spot either to TX or to WV

  26. ALABAMA is just stunning! Beautiful face, perfect body, lovely hair. I wish she would use another gown though (like the one she wore for the formal shoot) for the Finals. I don’t know how she is in interviews but I hope she wins. She’ll be a fave in MU. UTAH is second place for me. Nevada is this year’s Audrey Bolte — saccharin-pretty but kinda dingy. Disappointed with California, Texas, Tennesse, Virginia, Georgia and Florida. I had high hopes before their arrival but kinda fizzled out for me. We’ll see.

  27. Bohring

  28. 3M might surprise us, there are

    Massachusetts
    Michigan and
    Minnesota

    BTW, Nevada Black one is timeless, material really nice, simple cut!
    and Arkansas GOLD one nice too, and is it EXACTLY the SAME dress with Miss Tanzania 2012 in MU?

  29. IN MY OWN OPINION BASED ON HOW THEY CARRY THE GOWN, CONFIDENCE & DESIGN OF GOWN. MY TOP 16 EVENING GOWN:

    = ALABAMA
    = DISTRICT OF COLOMBIA
    = HAWAII
    = IOWA
    = KENTUCKY
    = MINNESOTA
    = NEVADA
    = NEW JERSEY
    = NORTH CAROLINA
    = OKLAHOMA
    = SOUTH DAKOTA
    = TENNESSE
    = TEXAS -3
    = UTAH – 2
    = VIRGINIA
    = WASHINGTONG – 1

    • New Jersey and Oklahoma

  30. I have watch the live stream of Miss USA preliminary competition and Utah is the clear winner of the night followed by Connecticut and Alabama. May Utah perform well in the finals night of this pageant. No wonder why she’s the top cover girl of GB in their report. Good choice GB. Good luck and God bless Marissa Powell, WIN the MISS USA 2013 crown on June 16!

    • Totally agree! Alabama and Utah are the best!

      • You might also want to add Massachusetts to the list- the dress, I agree, was a mess but there is no denying her beauty! I don’t get the fuss about North Carolina- her dress was terrible and I didn’t get her catwalk

        • 123pageant update. says:

          NC dress was not the best, but the way she carried it was just too hard for one to ignore. She was one of the best performers there Wednesday night. If she get’s in the top 16, I can tell you she will place a lot higher than Massachusetts.

      • Yeah right. Alabama needs to change her gown and Connecticut needs more attitude and fierceness on stage. I like Minnesota and Nevada too. North Carolina is a resemblance of Russia’s gown in MU 2012. Utah for the Win!
