Why Is It Easier To Become President Than Miss America?

That was the question asked by contributer Michelle Wolf on 'The Daily Show's' Sept. 12 show. And she makes an excellent point. Why does Miss America have to be a person of fine character, ready to represent all of America, when the president doesn't have to meet those requirements?.....»»

Miss America Axing Swimsuits

  The infamous brainiac scholarship competition, Miss America, has announced that it will no longer require contestants to wear swimsuits. Finally. After decades of covering up with swimsuits, we’ll get to the contestants walk around naked. JK. The competition, which historically has been just a step up from a wet t-shirt contest over Spring Break […] The post Miss America Axing Swimsuits appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   The infamous brainiac scholarship competition, Miss America, has announced that it will no longer require contestants to wear swimsuits. Finally. After decades of covering up with swimsuits, we’ll get to the contestants walk around naked. JK. The competition, which historically has been just a step up from a wet t-shirt contest over Spring Break in Daytona, FL, is trying to adapt to the stage four wokeness of 2018, and Gretchen Carlson, the Miss America Organization chair of the Board of Trustees, said in a statement: 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. 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. That’s what we’re judging them on now. 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. We want you and we want to celebrate your accomplishments and your talents and then we want to hand you scholarships. Yes, the competition, which has previously – admittedly or not – required contestants to look like they could charm the dang pants off a table of bank branch managers chowing down at a Toledo Hooters, will now be open to all women no matter what. During the next televised competition expect for the host to wheel out college-bound amputees, clinically overweight chicks, trucker lesbians, and just all around monsters. Serena Williams might even give it a go. JK again. Bathing suits or not, the women will still be caking on their foundation and extreme dieting in preparation for the competition, and if, God forbid, one of them weighs more than ninety-pounds, the media will consider the bikini-less experiment a success. If Miss America really isn’t about looks, why aren’t the contestants wearing head-to-toe burkas? Why aren’t men allowed to compete? Why does it even need to be televised? Can’t the contestants just write in an essay? These are just a few of the questions that the paltry number of viewers will be contemplating while trying and failing to get off to the whore parade during its next reincarnation on September 9th on ABC. The media landscape is more politically polarized than ever, and unable to choose between either continuing to objectify hot women or to exclusively feature non-gender conforming Parkland shooting survivors, Miss America will surely lose its last shreds of relevancy. Hopefully we still have enough time for them to solve world peace.

Former Miss America Kate Shindle Responds to Pageant CEO"s Shocking Emails About Her

Emails that were exposed in the new report show that Sam thought it was funny when one of his colleagues wrote “It should have been Kate Shindle” while writing about the death of former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley. Shindle won the pageant in 1998 and went on to become a successful theatre actress with starring roles in Legally Blonde, Cabaret, and Fun Home. She currently is the president of the Actors’ Equity Association, the union the represents stage actors and stage managers. “I almost don’t have the words to respond to Yashar Ali‘s revelations about the current leadership of the Miss America Organization,” Kate wrote in a statement released on Twitter, in which she called for the full Board of Directors to resign. “Today, I read that a member of the production team wished I were dead, and that Executive Chairman and CEO Sam Haskell laughed about it. I read that the Board of Directors conspired to change the rules of the competition specifically to destroy another Miss America’s business. I read that that same board passed around photos to email each other degrading comments about a Miss America’s body,” she added. “It makes me physically ill.” You can read the full statement below. .@yashar pic.twitter.com/Aer8XyoCjE — kate shindle (@kateshindle) December 22, 2017.....»»

EXCLUSIVE! Todd Chrisley To Be Named The New Miss California USA Director — & There’s Going To Be A Whole Reality Show About It!

We've got some news, y'all! Pageant sources are telling us EXCLUSIVELY that the Miss Universe Miss USA organization is going to have a new Miss California USA Director after ending their contracts with Pam Wilson and Alex Kuty.

Pageant sources are telling us EXCLUSIVELY that the Miss Universe Miss USA organization is going to have a new Miss California USA Director after ending their contracts with Pam Wilson and Alex Kuty. An insider shared Todd Chrisley will become the new Director! In case you didn't know, the reality TV star is already a Director for Miss Florida, and that will seemingly continue to be the case even with California. Photos: Biggest Beauty Pageant Scandals! On top of that, a reality show on USA, the network behind Chrisley Knows Best, is in the future, sponsored by Maverick TV and their USA company All3Media. Guess that explains how Chrisley was put up for the new gig! Anyway, there's been no word on whether Wilson and Kuty's termination has anything to do with California pageant girls going to other states to compete (and winning in those states!) just to avoid the supposedly lower production quality and treatment by the duo -- but we can't imagine it helped their case. Kuty has already confirmed her termination, adding she's the "Former Executive Director, Miss California USA at Miss Universe Organization" to her Facebook profile, but no official announcement has been made on any of the changes coming to Miss California USA! We'll keep you posted!.....»»

After the pageant’s CEO Sam Haskell resigned after inappropriate emails he wrote about former contestants, past winners Kate Shindle and Gretchen Carlson have released a statement for a much needed call to action for the program. “While it is reassuring that some of the perpetrators of the abuses within the Miss America Organization have resigned, this by no means fulfills the need for a thorough housecleaning of the Board of Directors,” Kate and Gretchen started her statement. The ladies continued: “We will continue to demand the resignations of every individual who either participated in the abuse of women or stood by and was complicit by failing to conduct proper due diligence, as legally required by their fiduciary obligations. In addition, we expect that no new board members will be appointed until every implicated board member has resigned.” “As evidenced by the thousands of voices – of contestants, former titleholders, local, state and national volunteers – being raised in support of our goals, this Board of Directors has lost the trust of the country,” Kate continued. “For the good of the organization, they must step away. The women of Miss America are determined to take back our program. This is not over yet.” Read their statement in full inside… Statement from @GretchenCarlson and @kateshindle regarding @MissAmericaOrg pic.twitter.com/964UteeHsI — Gretchen Carlson (@GretchenCarlson) December 23, 2017.....»»
