The big question, of course, is will this woman (the reigning Miss USA, Kristen Dalton) fall on the floor like the other two Miss USAs did in the past two Miss Universe pageants?!
Of course, if Kristen wins, the whining will be on about Carrie Prejean (dethroned Miss California) and how this could have been her, and on and on.
Personally, I think the Miss USA judges made the right choice -- that Carolina girl is a hottie. I didn't know this before, but apparently her mother was also a former Miss North Carolina USA back in 1982. (Kristen also likes NASCAR and her "national costume" tonight will be NASCAR-themed --- complete with hotpants! Gotta love it.)
Global Beauties has coverage of Miss Universe and the pageant is live tonight at 9 ET on NBC. By the way, it's sure to be an interesting show because, uh, Heidi Montag will be there, singing.
That's assuming she'll be allowed to go on stage, which is still in doubt because, I gather, people are having second thoughts about putting this potential train wreck on worldwide TV. Maybe Heidi will be the one to trip up and land on the floor tonight instead of Miss USA.
