LAS VEGAS (AP) — An additional five beauty queens have been sent home at the Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas after strutting their stuff in swimsuits.

Among the remaining contestants are Miss Louisiana, Miss Texas and Miss South Carolina.

Also continuing on in the competition are representatives from Connecticut, Ohio, Illinois, Nevada, Utah, Alabama and North Carolina.

In a twist, organizers are allowing fans to save one of the eliminated women by announcing their support on Twitter.

The beauties will don evening gowns and answer interview questions before a winner is chosen.
