The whirlwind TV location shoots for the 2013 Miss USA Pageant princesses continue at full pace. On Tuesday, it was a wild cowgirl line-dancing contest at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill at Harrah’s, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was onsite for the tough assignment with the gorgeous girls.

The beauty queens chose from five iconic country singers’ hairstyles to re-create that star’s look and then competed in line dancing. Miss Colorado USA 2013 Amanda Wiley won the event and a trophy of red cowgirl boots.

This morning, it was charity work with Stop Hunger Now at The Venetian helping pack meals to benefit needy families in Haiti. Tonight, the 51 contestants in Donald Trump’s NBC pageant in PH Live at Planet Hollywood on June 16 relax with a family-style dinner at Buca di Beppo on East Flamingo.

Chelsea Caswell, who is on leave from her position at Andrea’s in Steve Wynn’s Encore, represents The Silver State in the pageant. We have the first photos of her official evening gown, swimsuit and “Great Gatsby”-themed glamour shot by controversial photographer Fadil Berisha that we posted Tuesday.

Reigning Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether has arrived on the Strip and is hosting the hopefuls at some of the filming locations. She will crown the winner after next week’s judges interviews and preliminaries at Planet Hollywood.
