|Miss USA 2022|
|Date||October 3, 2022|
|Venue||Grand Sierra Resort, Reno, Nevada|
Miss USA 2022 will be the 71st Miss USA pageant. The competition will be held on October 3, 2022 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada and will be broadcast on FYI for the third year in a row. Elle Smith of Kentucky will crown her successor at the end of the event. The winner will go on to represent the United States at the Miss Universe 2022.
On July 14, 2022, it was reported that the competition would be held in Reno, Nevada, with the city securing a three-year deal to host the pageant in 2022, 2023, and 2024. This will be the second time that the pageant is held in Reno, following Miss USA 2019. The following day, it was confirmed that the pageant would be held at the Grand Sierra Resort on October 3. Crystle Stewart confirmed that the location was chosen to honor Cheslie Kryst, whom had been crowned Miss USA 2019 in the same venue and had committed suicide in January 2022.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the duration between most of the state pageants from the previous year's competition, with previous year's state titleholders' reign being shortened to eight to eleven months into their calendar year, depending on state. Delegates from the 50 states and the District of Columbia are selected in state pageants in a period began in September 2021 and scheduled to end in July 2022 to avoid scheduling conflicts with Miss America 2023 state pageants, as the state pageant schedule can become very dense between the last state pageant held from 2021. The first state pageants were Idaho and Montana, held together on September 12, 2021, and the last state pageant was Colorado, held on July 3, 2022.
Eleven delegates have previously competed in Miss Teen USA and Miss America, eight are former Miss Teen USA state winners, two are a former Miss America state titleholders, and one is a former Miss America's Outstanding Teen state titleholder.
All 51 titleholders have been crowned.
