The Miss USA pageant is going on this weekend, broadcast live on NBC from Las Vegas at 9 PM EST. This year’s event should be especially glamorous because (if you remember from last year’s competition) the winner of Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo (formerly Miss Rhode Island) went on to win Miss Universe. And that’s, like, a pretty big freaking deal.
Still not convinced that this is worth watching? What if I told you that (unlike Miss America) there’s a section where they model swimwear? Also, there are odds on who’s going to win. Because it’s Vegas, baby.
