NBA finals are on. End thread.

They should merge Miss USA with the NBA finals. The players can have a swimsuit competition, while the girls are playing basketball without their swimsuits on.

As long as no camera ever goes to the NBA players in their skivvies, I'm good with that.

I hope Miss Texas is the point guard. The basketball won't be the only thing bouncing.

I'm going to be watching with my 6 year old niece. She has picked Kentucky as her favorite.

She is my fav, but her privacy answer ruins everything. No, just no. Privacy is a good thing, never answer a question saying otherwise. :doh

Yeah, really stupid answer. "I don't care if they read my phone records. I want to be safe going to the movies!" *eyeroll*

She got the toughest question. I hope they don't weigh it too heavily, because she looks the best overall.

I'd say look at the stats closer on when women are the main earners. Are they including single parents? With the divorce rate and percentage of the time mom gets the kids, this would affect the numbers quite a bit.

Yeah it was a loaded question. They're perpetuating the myth that women are still underpaid compared to men. There are so many factors built into how much people get paid. To pretend it's ONLY based on gender is stupid.

Here are the contestants. You can see their glamshot, close-up, evening gown and swimsuit picture. Which if your favorite?

Note: Yes, I know some people think pageants are horrible.... this isn't the thread to discuss that. Thank you. :)

Miss USA : Members

I don't watch that crap.... Not to mention the SCF game is on tonight..

I don't like superficial conceited idiots.... What type of real person with brains and personality would want to be judged on their looks?

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The newest Miss USA is leaving a white-collar job behind for the glamour and excitement that go with her new role — and she can't wait.

Moments after she was crowned at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday, Connecticut accountant Erin Brady said all she could think about was letting her bosses know she won't be coming in tomorrow. Or ever again.

She wore an orange bikini with a matching halter-top as she strutted to the Jonas Brother's "Pom Poms." Later, she donned a strapless gown with a spangled golden corset and long white train.

In the pageant's final minutes, she answered without hesitation a question about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold widespread DNA tests.

"If someone is being prosecuted and committed a crime, it should happen. There are so many crimes that if that's one step closer to stopping them, then we should be able to do so," Brady said.

As Miss USA, Brady will live in a swanky Manhattan apartment and travel the world raising awareness about breast cancer, but she has an additional goal of her own: Helping children cope with the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, which have marked those close to her.

The Central Connecticut State University finance major will represent the U.S. at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow this winter. Last year's Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, won that international crown, becoming the first Miss USA to ascend to Miss Universe in 16 years. Brady said she is determined to pull off the feat for the U.S. again.....snip~
