The past three nights of preliminary competition has been exciting, with no one becoming a double prelim winner. Some of the choices came as a surprise to online commenters, but that will only make the Top 10 more interesting!

- Shannon and Cayla share a local E.D.
- Cayla won the Talent award over Shannon at their local.
- At their winning locals Heather Wells bested both Alissa and Meggie for the Swimsuit award; Amber won Swimsuit at her local.
- Awards were not given at Sweeps, where Jenna was crowned, but she did win a Talent award a few weeks prior at Miss Muskingum Valley.
- Flight Two's winners were first (Meggie in SS) and last (Jenna in Talent).
- Flight One and Three's winners were all near the middle of their competition groups.
- When asked their favorite phase, only two of the six answered with the competition for which they won preliminary awards! (Jenna and Cayla said Talent.)
