By April 15, 2009

Follow me on:

Shelley Hennig (Stephanie) will be among the twelve telecast judges for this year's Miss USA Pageant, which will air on NBC Sunday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m. ET. Fans may be aware that Shelley herself is a pageant winner, as she won the title of Miss Teen USA in 2004. The Pageant will broadcast live from Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Miss USA 2008 Crystle Stewart will crown her successor at the end of the two-hour telecast on Sunday evening. Fans may recall that Crystle made a guest appearance on the June 20, 2008 DAYS episode. The beautiful contestants from the fifty states and the District of Columbia will be judged in swimsuit, evening gown, and interview categories.

Other celebrity judges for this year's pageant will include Kelly Monaco from General Hospital, celebrity gossip columnist Perez Hilton, Miss USA 2004 Shandi Finnessey, and Kenan Thompson. Billy Bush and Nadine Velazquez will host the event.

I probably will not be watching. I just don’t get why NBC picked a odd time slot for that. I used to love to watch the Miss USA Pagents. I think that NBC should have aired it on a week night like Friday. I think they did that last year. Now that Friday Night Lights is gone for the seaon, it seems like all they have now on Fridays is Howie Do It and Dateline NBC and I don’t watch those shows much at all. I am already missing Friday Night Lights.
