Can’t get enough of the Miss USA pageant? The one with all the splendor and spectacle of the Miss American pageant but without that pesky talent competition? We’ve got you covered Wednesday night (May 30). You can watch the live stream of the preliminary competition live from Las Vegas!

This year’s pageant sees the 2011 winner, Alyssa Campanella, turn her crown over to a new woman, who will tour the nation as an advocate for breast and ovarian cancer awareness, education, research and legislation. Hopefully this year’s winner stays out of the press for things like DUIs.

The judges for the 2012 pageant are “Bachelorette” Ali Fedotowsky, comedian Arsenio Hall, professional chef
Cat Cora, model Dayana Mendoza, fashion guru George Kotsiopoulos, singer
Joe Jonas, actress Marilu Henner and reality star Rob Kardashian.

Another added feature for the 2012 competition is that fans will be able to tweet questions for the Final Five during the live broadcast Sunday, June 3 on NBC. Just use #AskMissUSA throughout the two-hour program. One lucky fan’s question will be read to a Top Five finalist during the interview portion.

Who are you rooting for?
