History[edit] The Miss USA
Miss USA
pageant was conceived in 1950 when Yolande Betbeze, winner of the rival Miss America
Miss America
pageant, refused to pose for publicity pictures while wearing a swimsuit. Pageant sponsor Catalina decided to pull their sponsorship off the pageant and create their own competition.[2] Other owners have included a subsidiary of Gulf+Western
Gulf+Western
Industries, ITT Corporation, and billionaire Donald Trump.[3][4] The first Miss USA
Miss USA
and Miss Universe
Miss Universe
pageants were held concurrently in Long Beach, California
Long Beach, California
in 1952; the first Miss USA
Miss USA
winner was Miss New York USA Jackie Loughery.[5] There were thirty delegates in the first year of competition, and many states did not compete every year during the first two decades of the pageant's history. From the 1970s, each state and the District of Columbia have sent a delegate each year. Alaska first competed in 1959 and Hawaii
Hawaii
in 1960. Both had competed at Miss Universe
Miss Universe
until this time. The pageant aired on CBS
CBS
from 1963 until 2002, and for many years was known for having a CBS
CBS
game show host as pageant host. John Charles Daly hosted the show from 1963–1966, Bob Barker
Bob Barker
from 1967 (he was not a regular for the CBS
CBS
network until 1972 when he became host of The Price Is Right which he hosted until 2007) until 1987 (at which point he quit in a dispute over fur coats), Alan Thicke
Alan Thicke
in 1988, Dick Clark from 1989 to 1993, and Bob Goen
Bob Goen
from 1994 to 1996. The show's highest ratings were in the early 1980s, when it regularly topped the Nielsen ratings.[6][7][8] Viewership dropped sharply from the 1990s to the 2000s, from an estimated viewership of 20 million to an average of 7 million from 2000–2001.[9] In 2002, owner Donald Trump
Donald Trump
brokered a new deal with NBC, giving them half-ownership of the Miss USA, Miss Universe and Miss Teen USA
Miss Teen USA
and moving them to NBC
NBC
on an initial five-year contract.[10] The pageants were first shown on NBC
NBC
in 2003. Historically, the winner of the Miss USA
Miss USA
title represented the U.S. in its sister pageant Miss Universe. Since its inception, eight Miss USA titleholders have gone on to win Miss Universe. In the mid-1960s, the organization established a rule that when a Miss USA
Miss USA
wins the Miss Universe title, the first runner-up assumes the Miss USA
Miss USA
title for the remainder of the year. This occurred in 1980, 1995, 1997, and 2012.[11][12] In 1967, the first runner-up Susan Bradley of California declined the title and the crown went to the second runner-up Cheryl Patton of Florida. The only instance when a first runner-up assumed the title of Miss USA
Miss USA
prior to this period was in 1957, when Mary Leona Gage of Maryland
Maryland
resigned after it was discovered she was married.[13] The winner is assigned a one-year contract with the Miss Universe Organization, traveling across the United States, and in some cases overseas, to spread messages about the control of diseases, peace, and public awareness of AIDS. Aside from the job, the winner also receives a cash allowance for her entire reign, a New York Film Academy scholarship, a modelling portfolio, beauty products, clothes, shoes, as well as styling, healthcare, and fitness services by different sponsors of the pageant. She also gains exclusive access to events such as fashion shows and opening galas, as well as access to casting calls and modeling opportunities throughout New York City. When Donald Trump owned the pageant, the winner was given the use of a Trump Place apartment in New York City
New York City
during her reign, which she shared with the Miss Universe
Miss Universe
and Miss Teen USA
Miss Teen USA
titleholders. If the winner, for any reason, cannot fulfill her duties as Miss USA, including if she wins the title of Miss Universe, the 1st runner-up takes over. See also: Miss USA 2015

§ Controversy In late-June 2015, both NBC
NBC
and Spanish-language network Univision (which was to begin a new five-year contract for Spanish rights) announced that they would cut their ties with Donald Trump
Donald Trump
and the Miss Universe
Miss Universe
Organization in response to remarks Trump made relating to undocumented immigrants during the launch of his 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. Trump threatened to sue both companies over the decision; on June 30, 2015, Trump sued Univision
Univision
for defamation and breach of contract.[14][15] In February 2016, Donald Trump
Donald Trump
and Univision
Univision
reached a settlement ending the litigation. The terms of the settlement remain confidential, but included an agreement for Trump to buy back NBCUniversal's stake in the MUO.[16][17] After losing its television partners, it was announced that Miss USA 2015 would be streamed on the pageant's website. Shortly before the pageant, Reelz Channel
Reelz Channel
announced that it would broadcast Miss USA 2015.[18][19] In September 2015, IMG bought the Miss Universe
Miss Universe
Organization for an undisclosed amount. The company had previously been involved in licensing and production for the events. The following month, Fox announced that it had acquired the U.S. television rights to Miss USA and Miss Universe
Miss Universe
beginning with Miss Universe
Miss Universe
2015.[20][17] Competition[edit] The modern pageant consists of a preliminary competition held a week before the pageant when all contestants are judged in swimsuit, gown, and interview competitions.[21] State competitions[edit] Main article: List of Miss USA
Miss USA
states and territories Every year, each state holds a preliminary competition to choose their delegate for the Miss USA
Miss USA
pageant. In some states (such as Texas
Texas
and Florida), local pageants are also held to determine delegates for the state competition. The state winners hold the title "Miss State USA" for the year of their reign. The most successful state is Texas, which has had the most semi-finalists and winners, including five consecutive Miss USA titleholders during the 1980s.[22] Other successful states include California, New York, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia. The least successful states are Delaware, placing only once in 2015; Montana, which has not placed since the 1950s; South Dakota, which has only placed three times (the last time in 2016), and Wyoming, which gained only its second placement in 2010. The only state which has produced more than one Miss Universe

Awards[edit] The awards most frequently presented at Miss USA
Miss USA
are Miss Amity (also known as Miss Congeniality) and Miss Photogenic. The Miss Amity Award is chosen by the delegates, and recognizes those who are the friendliest and make the pageant experience the most enjoyable. From 1952 to 1964, when the Miss USA
Miss USA
and Miss Universe pageants were concurrent events, the award could be won by a contestant competing either for Miss USA
Miss USA
or Miss Universe. In fact, in 1960, there was a tie, with the award going to Miss Universe
Miss Universe
Myanmar, Myint Myint May, and Miss Louisiana
Louisiana
USA, Rebecca Fletcher. In 2015, Alaska and Delaware tied for the Miss Congeniality award. Vermont has won five Miss Amity/Congeniality awards, two more than any other state. The Miss Photogenic prize was first awarded in 1965 and was chosen by journalists until 1996 when it was chosen by an internet vote for the first time. There has been only one tie in this award's history: in 1980, when it was shared between Jineane Ford of Arizona and Elizabeth Kim Thomas of Ohio. The state that has won the most Photogenic awards is Virginia. Louisiana
