The next edition of the Miss America pageant will scrap swimsuits and will be more inclusive to women of all sizes, the contest announced Tuesday. Gretchen Carlson, the chairwoman of the Miss America board of directors, announced on "Good Morning America" that the event will no longer feature a swimsuit portion. Miss America will be a competition, not a pageant, Carlson said on the show Tuesday.
In place of the swimsuit contest, the contestants
will take part in a live interactive session with the judges, according
to a statement from the Miss America Organization, "where she will highlight
her achievements and goals in life and how she will use her talents, passion,
and ambition to perform the job of Miss America."
But the elimination of swimsuits isn't the only change coming to the 97-year-old event. The evening gown competition is being revamped as well. Carlson said contestants will now be able to wear "whatever they choose."
Contestants will also discuss how they would advance their social-impact initiatives during this part of the contest. The talent portion of the competition will remain. The rise of the #MeToo movement is powering the changes, Carlson said. "We're experiencing a cultural revolution in our country with women finding the courage to stand up and have their voices heard on many issues,"she said in the statement. "Miss America is proud to evolve as an organization and join this empowerment movement."
The liberals have gone too far - the latest
is mad. The organization is lost.
