Miss Teen USA 2012 triviaA very random collection of statistical oddities from this year’s pageant.
- Three of the top five states were the same as 2005 when Allie LaForce competed (WV, MI, OH) - thanks to someone in the chat (think it was Vech?) for pointing that one out!
- Two directors had two girls in the top five - Randy Sanders & Melissa Pitchford.
- Not only was this Connecticut’s first win, it was also their first top five placement. They’ve made the semi-finals only twice before.
- West Virginia didn’t place at all between 1989-2004… but in the past eight years they’ve made the cut four times, placing top five three of those years. Elizabeth’s placement is their highest ever.
- Michigan made the top three for the third time in the past ten years (the others being Alicia Jaros & Catherine Laurion).
- Jessica Morgan was Oklahoma’s first runner-up since Angela Logan 20 years ago, in the infamous 1992 pageant (although Amanda Penix made top 6 in 1997).
- Ohio was officially this year’s most successful state, with two top five placements. This was only the fourth time they’ve placed at Miss Teen USA.
- Oklahoma won their first Photogenic award and Vermont their second Miss Congeniality honour.
- As of 2012 Alabama has made the semis 3/5 Bahamas years, placing every even year.
- California ended a four year placement streak, which had seen their last three representatives finish 2RU.
- Georgia placed consecutively for the first time since 2004-6.
- Hawaii made the semi-finals for the first time since 2007 and won the inaugural Fan Vote. New Mexico also placed for the first time since 2007.
- Utah placed for only the fourth time, their third placement in the Bahamas.
- Wyoming placed for the sixth time, also their third Bahamas placement.
- In “Group 4” (NH-RI) from the preliminary competition, five contestants placed, in an almost unbroken consecutive line, with New Mexico - North Carolina, Ohio & Oklahoma. Conversely, only one contestant from Group 1 (AL-FL) made the cut.
