Miss Florida USA pageant contestants from all over the state of Florida will soon gather to compete for the coveted title.

The 50 finalists, from over 10,000 applicants, will descend on the city of Hollywood during the week of July 8-12, 2008 to vie for the Miss Florida USA 2009 crown.

More than 2.5 million viewers are expected to tune in to watch Jessica Rafalowski, Miss Florida USA 2008, crown her successor.
