This concluded preliminary competition. Tomorrow night will be the former Miss Gay Americas Revue Show. The finals will be on Sunday night.
These contestants I think will make top 10 :
*Alyssa Edwards (former Miss Gay USofA, maybe the best dancer in the group, she knows how to work a gown)
*Coti Collins (Although she is still doing Reba, I think she will move on. I just do not think she will win. I would love to see her do something different)
*Alexis Mateo (A name to remember, has been very clean,consistent, and beautiful)
*Alana Steele (maybe the best gown so far)
*Ivy White
*Symphony A. Love
*Kristina Kelly
*Victoria DePaula ( I really hope that she will do something other than "Wicked" if she makes top 10)
*China Collins (very nice gown, she needs to ramp it up)
I think there are a few who could take the last spot:
*Sally Sparkle
*Victoria Parker
*Chantel Reshae
*Tatiyanna Voche
*Coco Montrese
Good Luck Sunday Night Ladies !!!
