With the US Presidential Elections now over (and with Joe Biden as President-Elect), the focus will shift temporarily to the finals of Miss USA 2020 on Monday, November 9 (Tuesday morning around 10am here in Manila) live from Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.
Here is my Top 10 Selection for the crown:
#NewYork Andreia Gibau
#Idaho Kim Layne
#NewHampshire Alyssa Fernandes
#California Allyshia Gupta
#Georgia Alyssa Beasley
#NorthCarolina Jane Axhoj
#NorthDakota Macy Christianson
#NewJersey Gina Mellish
#Indiana Alexis Lete
#Tennessee Justice Enlow
Let’s see if Idaho (who holds a dual citizenship with the Philippines) can turn the heat up even more and become the successor of Cheslie Kryst.
Meanwhile, in what could be one of the most teen-worthy winning reactions ever, Ki’ilani Arruda of Hawaii was crowned Miss Teen USA 2020. She was literally jumping for joy after hearing her name called as the successor of Kaleigh Garris.
Her court includes Oregon, Georgia, Nebraska and Louisiana, in that order.
This coming Monday at 10am ET (or 10pm Philippine time), join Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, Miss USA Cheslie Kryst and Miss Teen USA Kaliegh Garris alongside Miss Universe Organization President Paula Shugart for #universeunited Unfiltered!
These remarkable women will share a conversation about what participating in pageants has meant to them, behind-the-scenes secrets from their competitions, and the intangibles which set them apart to take the crown. Proceeds from this discussion benefit the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Before the Miss Universe 2019 Preliminary Competition kicks off in Atlanta, Georgia (at around 9am here in Manila), normannorman.com would like to share its Pre-Preliminaries Top 20 – or the ladies I expect to perform well in both swimsuit and evening gown presentations. Hopefully, all of them will score high with the judges.
I reckon that the online voting winner will also be in this list. So in alphabetical order of country name, they are:
