Miss America is scrapping its swimsuit competition

Miss America is scrapping its swimsuit competition, will no longer judge based on physical appearance

Image


Miss America is scrapping its swimsuit competition and will no longer judge contestants based on physical appearance, the organization announced Tuesday.

"We are no longer a pageant," Gretchen Carlson, the first former Miss America to be named chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization, said on "GMA." "We are a competition."

In place of the swimsuit portion of the competition, Miss America contestants will now take part in a live interactive session with the judges, according to the organization.

The contestants from all 50 states and the District of Columbia will be asked to demonstrate their passion, intelligence and overall understanding of the job of Miss America.

The organization is also getting rid of the evening gown portion of the competition and instead asking contestants to wear attire that makes them feel confident, expresses their personal style and shows how they hope to advance the role of Miss America.

"We’ve heard from a lot of young women who say, ‘We’d love to be a part of your program but we don’t want to be out there in high heels and a swimsuit,’ so guess what, you don’t have to do that anymore," Carlson said. "Who doesn’t want to be empowered, learn leadership skills and pay for college and be able to show the world who you are as a person from the inside of your soul."

She continued, "That’s what we’re judging them on now."

In addition to being crowned Miss America in 1989, Carlson has more recently been an outspoken advocate for victims of sexual harassment and a champion of the #MeToo movement. In 2016, she settled a lawsuit against former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, who stepped down from his role after mounting pressure from additional employees with similar accusations.

"I could have never expected what would happen when I sued my former employer at Fox News for sexual harassment 22 months ago, but look what has happened," she said. "Thousands of women have been inspired to know that they can stand up and speak up and their voices will be heard."

Carlson added, "If I’ve been a beacon of hope to any woman in that process, it has been worth it."

The sweeping changes to Miss America aim to help the organization be more inclusive and empowering for all women. Carlson also said that she hopes the revamped competition will resonate more with young people.

"We are now open, inclusive and transparent and I want to inspire thousands of young people across this country to come and be a part of our program," she said. "We want you and we want to celebrate your accomplishments and your talents and then we want to hand you scholarships."

The Miss America organization courted controversy earlier this year when internal emails were released from the group's former CEO Sam Haskell. In the leaked emails, Haskell, who later resigned, and others were insulting the appearance, intellect and personal lives of former pageant winners, including Carlson.

Carlson is now part of an all-female leadership team at Miss America.

"This is a new beginning and change can sometimes be difficult but I know a lot about change," she said. "My life has worked in mysterious ways. I never thought I’d be the chairwoman of the Miss America Organization, but here I am and we’re moving it forward and we’re evolving in this cultural revolution."

The 2019 Miss America Competition airs live on ABC on Sunday, Sept. 9, at 9 p.m. EST.

They tried too hard to erase the controversial with their previous CEO. I remember watching Shandi's recap, she once mentioned when Miss America implemented the quiz session in the early 2000s, the rating flopped and ABC dropped the telecast. Said that fast forward we are in 2018. So, we can't even enjoy seeing beautiful girls flaunting in bikinis? What a ridiculous political correctness. :| My prediction: I see a drop in ratings just like Miss USA 2017 when they made major changes.

When was it ever really about physical beauty? =;)) =;)) well maybe at the beginning in the early decades.

ANYWAYSSSS, I already know beauty pageants will die out in a couple decades... at most. So I'm just enjoying them for the time being but honestly I don't know why Miss America is still a thing =;))

I'm not mad, I've seen it coming

So stupid. What Miss America did today is make a woman in a bikini taboo. That's all they did. Women and men prance around in swimsuits or underwear for all sorts of events, will those events be canceled now?

It's dumb.

Miss America will claim that women in bikinis is offensive. Is it? No, those who find it offensive are the same people who find pageants offensive. Those people want pageants to go away. So basically, by ending the swimsuit competition, Miss America is one step closer to ending pageantry.

That's all they accomplished. They will not gain a single fan or viewer because of this decision. Not a single one.

As much as I hate how ugly the current ME is...

I think it's actually the only pageant who can also go into this direction and continue to be more relevant in the future. They could totally keep on crowning girls who look like this year's winner and argue that it's not about beauty, it's open to all girls who want to make a difference! O di ba??

As for the changes to the evening “gown” competition, Carlson revealed that beginning this year contestants will be able to wear “whatever they choose.”

What's the fuss? You guys are acting as if you are fans of Miss America. Since I've been on misso I've never seen an active thread covering Miss America. You guys are a MISS USA crowd.

Unless you are concerned about how this development will affect other US based pageants. Miss Teen USA is already distancing from bikinis.

To me it's nothing revolutionary some national pageants don't have a bikini contest and Miss World made that move a few years ago. It's just the era of change.

I honestly don't know why they ever had teenagers (some even 14) on bikinis so I'm actually glad for that change =;))

If Trump still owned Miss Universe, I wouldn't be as concerned. But I feel like IMG is actively trying to make Miss USA and Miss Universe more friendly to the masses. The problem is pageantry is a niche industry. Always has been.

When you start stripping away at pageant norms, you're not making new fans but you're alienating current ones. I think the pageants who realize this will be the ones that maybe extend their shelf life. The others not so much. Miss America will find this out.

Why don't they just post an ad for this and let the girls undergo the usual hiring process? This pageant is becoming boring.

Darling, Miss America is a BEAUTY contest, not a JOB POSITION, so what's the point of putting the show or coronation night? if they want to save expenses why don't they just do a SKYPE interview all week then select the best one and announce it on their Facebook page? =;)) =;)) =;)) =;)) =;))
