Due to the time difference, the schedule for the preliminary competition of Miss USA 2013 was in conflict with the schedule of my day job. So, I wasn’t able to see it via live streaming. Thank you to some kind-hearted individual, we can all see the preliminary competition because a video was uploaded just hours after the show. Sharing the video to you:

Why is preliminary competition so important! For Miss USA (and also Miss Universe), preliminary competition is actually the first battle royal for the candidates because through this competition, the Top 15 will be decided upon! The competition is usually divided into 3 parts: swimsuit and evening gown (which is open to public) and a closed-door interview. So this is literally the “make-or-break” competition for the delegates! Now, who performed well in the preliminary competition of Miss USA 2013?
