The Miss USA 2012 pageant is scheduled to air this coming Sunday, June 3rd, on NBC. The annual event will feature 51 gorgeous contestants, who will all hit the stage to show America their beauty and their talents. In the nail biting competition the ladies will showcase their gowns, swimsuits, and more, in what is being called a “mini fashion show”, to see who will take the crown from last year’s winner Alyssa Campanella of California.
This year’s judges panel includes former talk show host Arsenio Hall, singer Joe Jonas, Rob Kardashian of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Bachelorette Season 6’s Ali Fedotowsky, and George Kotsiopoulos. Set to host the big Miss USA event is Andy Cohen, E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic, with the help of Kelly Osbourne and Jeannie Mai. It has been said that pageant owner Donald Trump will also stop by before the big show to see the ladies in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Out of the diverse group of woman Miss Texas Brittany Booker is the favorite to win the competition on 2012 Miss USA betting odds at Bovada Sportsbook at 11/2. If the young lady wins she will become the tenth women to take home the crown, representing the Lone Star State, who brags nine previous wins at the Miss USA pageant.
Miss Alaska and Miss Rhode Island are a close second to Miss Texas, sharing 9/1 odds, followed by Miss California (11/1), a state that has six wins, Miss Ohio (12/1), Miss Pennsylvania ( 12/1), and Miss Illinois (15/1).
Coming in at the bottom of the list and sharing odds of 75/1 is Miss Wisconsin, Miss Vermont, and Miss New Hampshire. Miss Missouri and Miss North Dakota (65/1) are also underdogs of the competition. Whoever takes home the crown at this year’s pageant will go on to represent the United States at the Miss Universe 2012 pageant. Who are you betting on?
It’s a toss up for me when it comes to the trio of Miss Texas, Miss Alaska, and Miss Rhode Island. All three have the assets, but by the looks of it Miss Rhode Island could easily take home the crown.
