Get out your popcorn folks, it’s time for the 2015 Miss USA Pageant LIVE from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Normally I don’t do this sort of thing, but I’ve never had a friend competing. Not only am I gonna watch Miss Kentucky Katie George kickass, but I’m going to do what KSRers do best: LIVE Diary the hell out of it. So if you can’t tune in on the Reelz Channel (238 DirecTV) or watch online at missuniverse.com/missusa, sit back and enjoy a LIVE Diary of epic proportions.
10:17– Well, Katie’s run is done. It sucks, but it’s one hell of an accomplishment to make it this far. Congrats Katie! We all still love ya back home. Now it’s time for me to shut this thing down. I hope y’all enjoyed.
10:10– TWO MISS CONGENIALITY’S!?!?!?!?!?! Incredible! Somebody call Sandra Bullock. We need another sequel to celebrate this landmark occasion.
10:05– Somebody’s gonna have to explain to me how a 720-degree camera works. Last I checked, they can only turn around once. But what do I know? I’m no mathmagician.
10:02 – Terry brings up a good point. All of the former pageant girls view these things through a different lens, one Katie has rarely been seen through.

9:51– Holy Miss Nevada looked two different kinds of spectacular. I don’t care if she tripped a little, she looked mighty fine doing it.
9:50 – KATIE’S BACK IN!!!!!! Katie showed no remorse in her celebration and I love it.
9:48– Snap yo fingaz, do you step! That was how their dance number began for this awful country music performance.
9:37– She’s currently crushing it in the numbers, so PLEASE keep voting!
9:36– We found another way to get more votes, by cheating. Use different browsers (like Firefox, Chrome, etc.) to get ten more votes for Miss Kentucky.
9:32– Damn. She didn’t make the Top Ten. It’s bush league, but she can get back in it. Go to www.missusa.com/play and VOTE!!!!! VOTE NOW! Ten Minutes only!
9:28– Miss Alabama starring in a Kid Rock and Hank Williams Jr. music video is the most Miss Alabama thing ever.
9:23– Well I wouldn’t mind watching another bikini competition. Unfortunately we’re moving on to the next set of cuts, down to the Top 10. Keeping my fingers crossed (even if it makes typing difficult).
9:18– A dancer just NAILED the cameraman. Following a song and dance routine during the bikini portion of the program, the camera was jolted as they went in for the close-up of the next girl. Too bad we don’t have a shot from behind of the damage that was done.

9:07– A good way to distance yourself from the bad publicity of an anti-immigrant speech, do a feature on immigrants in your pageant.
9:03– I didn’t think we’d have a Master P sighting tonight, but I also didn’t think I’d see him in Louisville lawyer commercials. I’m going to be honest though, of all the classic 90’s rappers I know his music the least. And when I mean the least, I mean I couldn’t name one song. But I can say ugggggggggh.
8:56– “Murder Made Me Famous” sounds like a show I’d like to see. I wonder how George Zimmerman and Casey Anthony feel about it…
8:51– Alabama accents are amazing. It’s so good that it distracts you from the content that’s coming out of her mouth (which is probably a good thing).
8:45– The picture of the audience reaction is simply amazing. Mostly because I know the people, but also because of the crotch grab.
8:40– They showed all our friends in the audience. SO MUCH AIR TIME! The video montage had some good shots for WLKY, and some sand volleyball from Baxter Jack’s. Like many of you out there, I’m a BIG fan of sand volleyball.
8:39– WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! KATIE’S IN THE TOP 15!!!!!!!!!! EAT IT!
8:36– We have our first crier! Congrats Miss Rhode Island for taking tonight’s first crown. It was a sad story, but there’s no crying in beauty pageants! (Actually, I think I’m wrong. But I’m new to this stuff).
8:30– Oh SNAP! Five have been announced and not one of them has been Katie. Stay calm, stay calm. WE GOT THIS!
8:28– Miss Texas is a freak. Who bites icing off your finger? I’ll grant you, it was hot, but come on. That wasn’t natural.
There’s much more after the jump.
8:22– They keep showing the girls wearing their crowns. Frankly, I don’t know how they keep them on their head. Katie was kind enough to let me try it on. I’ll grant you that my head is large and abnormal, but those shouldn’t be able to fit any persons head.
8:17– OMG THE TOP 15 IS NEXT! Keeping my fingers crossed for Katie, but I don’t think they’d bring a camera crew to Louisville to tell “her story” if she wasn’t going to hang around for at least a little while.
8:15- It only took two minutes of host banter for the lady to say, “We already have 51 winners.” Not really. Last I checked, if you’re not first, you’re last.
8:11- The dude with the tall hair singing “American Woman” totally just messed up the lyrics. Instead of saying, “American woman, stay away from me,” he jumped to the next line of, “Momma let me be.” When he got to the next line, instead of sounding like a redundant idiot he just mumbled through it. Tisk-tisk Mr. Tall Hair, tisk-tisk.
8:08– Katie with the strong head nod in between “Louisville” and “Kentucky.” She doesn’t look nervous, but the former roommate I’m watching it with sure is.
8:07- THEY’RE DANCING WITH UMBRELLAS NOW! Cue the Rihanna music, not this “Bad Mamma Jamma” nonsense.
8:05- I can’t tell if these girls are actually TRYING to be obnoxious when they announce who they are and where they’re from. Miss Colorado is scary, and Miss Connecticut needs some cheese with that wine.
8:03– Apparently the thing to do is take pictures with the face of the person you’re cheering for.
