The Miss USA 2014 preliminaries are in full swing, with the final competition set to happen this coming Sunday, June 8th at 8pm EST, Live on NBC.
This year's hopefuls include many talented, smart, and beautiful young women, so it was quite a challenge to pick a top 15 from their contestant bios and preliminary information. But here goes!
These are my Top 15 picks for Miss USA 2014, and if you want to see who I think could be the winner - check out my latest LA Modeling Examiner article, which features my favorite Miss USA contestant this year.

Congratulations to all the state titleholders! Looking forward to watching the pageant this weekend
It is my pleasure to introduce the all new Pageant U blog - called Pageant Notes! Here I hope to share with you some insights from behind the scenes of being a pageant author, consultant and judge. As a former titleholder and fashion model, I love sharing experiences and helping others reach their goals for success in modeling and pageants.
If you have a question about modeling or pageants, please email them to me and you may see the answer to your question featured in our next pageant video.
Thanks for stopping by!
