FAVORITES: Miss USA 2023 Top 16 early favorites

Miss USA 2023 kicked off this weekend with the arrival and check-in of the 51 contestants at this year's official venue, the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada.

The week-long event will conclude this Friday, September 29 with the coronation of the 72nd Miss USA who will go on to represent the United States of America at Miss Universe 2023 in El Salvador on November 18.

As the prestigious national competition begins, it is not easy to predict which of the contestants will take home the crown as it could be anyone's game.

A distinguished panel of judges will have the most difficult task of choosing the next Miss USA based on their interviews, and performances during the preliminary swimsuits and evening gown competitions.

One contestant will earn a sport in the semifinals through a People's Choice fan vote. Voting is open until September 28 on the Miss USA official website.
