Miss USA 2012 State Pageant Coverage

Top Five Finalist Photos

One of my favourite site sections since I created Pageant Update, the top fives page (or top three, or four, or six!) is your place to compare the official “court” photos from each state. It’s a celebration of our winners and runners-up for each Miss USA 2012 state pageant. Many 2012 runners-up have since gone on to compete at Miss USA. Who are your favourites?
