  • olivia caputo looks confused and laura eikers looks like she is dropping a deuce

  • I was looking at the pageant’s website. Looks like this is a rather small-timey thing; most of the information on the website is oriented toward contestants and potential contestants rather than to the general public.

  • So glad they’re not using the hotels in Woodley Park.

  • I love how of all the things to do in the greater Washington area, the itinerary includes trips to not one but TWO malls. Hahaha.

    • Whoever planned this is obviously not familiar with DC at all. Who actually goes to the Shops at Crystal City (unless they’re passing through on the way to the metro)? I guess the handful of shop owners that haven’t gone out of business yet will be thrilled to have some customers.

      • Also, I hope they plan on hitting Pentagon City early in the morning. This time of the year it’s swarming with obnoxious teenagers from about 11am onward.

  • LOL.

    Not to be confused with the Miss USA Pageant, the Miss North America Pageant, the Miss God Bless America Pageant, or the Miss NAFTA Pageant.

  • Hope they know the Nats game is at 11am.

    • Hehe, that’s a good point. The parade starts at 10am and goes for an hour, and I’m sure there’s going to be a ton of traffic heading to the stadium.

  • Gracie Lou Freebush? Is that you?

  • ha ha ha love the mispelling of “Sphynx Club.”

    this is clearly an organization seeking to take advantage of confusion with other, more well-known pageants.

  • “Describe your perfect date.”

    “That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th… because it’s not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.”

  • The Miss United States Pageant has moved its national pageant from Las Vegas, NV to Washington, D.C. Arlington, VA.

  • She’s beauty and she’s grace. She’s Miss United States.

  • What a shittily done poster lol

  • When will we stop the beauty pageant nonsense?

  • Is the relocation to give it more purpose or to prevent sore and sad losers from considering stripping?

    Disclaimer: Not mean to be sexist.

  • Very confusing, no information to families, a lot of money for these girls to fork out, but seems no organization
