Miss USA & Miss Teen USA to be held in May

102 Miss USA and Miss Teen USA hopefuls are going to be competing for the two titles at Shreveport-Bossier in the Hirsch Coliseum. But hold up, before you think that all 102 candidates will be sharing the same stage, two pageants will be held on two different pageant dates.

Reigning Miss USA Kara McCullough will be crowning her successor in a finals night scheduled on May 21st (early morning May 22nd in the Philippines). The two-hour pageant will be telecast separately by FoxTV and hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, also a former Miss Teen USA winner. Vanessa, who won the title in 1998 also in Shreveport, has appeared as co-host or correspondent a couple of times before for MU & MUSA.
Miss Teen USA 2017, Sophia Dominguez-Heithoff will be there with her MUOrg sisters too.  The Miss Teen USA pageant will be broadcast by the Reelz Network and might take place in an earlier date. According to a report from Shreveport Times, “details about the Miss Teen USA have not been finalized. The event will be held in May and broadcast by the Reelz Network. It will likely be scheduled for May 17 or 18, said Stacy Brown, president of the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau“.

Shreveport isn’t new to hosting pageants as it hosted Miss USA twice before (in 1997 & 1998) and the Miss Teen USA thrice (1998, 1999 & 2000). The pageant returns to the sister cities of Shreveport-Bossier after it first hosted the event 20 years ago.
