Miss USA 2018 (1st Update): An Exciting Competition Ahead

Photo Credit: Miss USA

After the successful run of Binibining Pilipinas 2018, I have now my sight on another powerful national pageant that will send its winner to Miss Universe 2018 – Miss USA 2018. With two months before the finale, I have here some of the information about the biggest and most prestigious American beauty pageant.

  • The Grand Finale will air LIVE on FOX on May 21 at 8PM ET.
  • It will be held at The Hirsch Memorial Coliseum in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana.
  • This year’s pageant marks the 20th anniversary of the competition’s appearance in Shreveport-Bossier in 1998 which was won by Shawnae Jebbia representing Massachusetts.
  • Couple Vanessa and Nick Lachey were announced hosts

If Binibining Pilipinas 2018 had Catriona Gray as the candidate considered as the one to beat coming into the competition, Miss USA 2018 has Genesis Davila who is representing Florida. Genesis is a pageant veteran who represented Puerto Rico in Miss World 2014. She won Miss Florida USA 2017 but was disqualified. She gave the pageant another shot and won the same state pageant this year. With this background and her experience, Genesis will arrive in Louisiana being touted as fan favorite.

I will keep you posted for updates as I officially start my Miss USA 2018 coverage!
