It was just a matter of time till another beauty contest would follow the trail of Miss World and drop the swimsuit competition altogether. But hey, the Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization Gretchen Carlson (Miss America 1989 herself) defends that it is not a beauty pageant in the first place but a scholarship contest. And as replacement, all candidates will have live interactive sessions with the judges. Sounds good to me because I have always looked at Miss America as going to the direction of showing less skin. Actually, I expected this group to have jumpstarted the action – even ahead of Julia Morley.
Now as far the entertainment value of Miss America, then it will all boil down to making the Talent Segment more engaging and the interactive sessions even more delightfully thought-provoking – not only in terms of the TV ratings but also in revolutionizing positive changes in the same.
Now who is the next brave heart to follow suit from hereon now?
