Miss America is getting a makeover!

Former Miss America and now chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization, Gretchen Carlson, announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday that there will no longer be a swimsuit or evening gown competition and contestants will no longer be judged on their physical appearance.

The former Fox News anchor explained:

"We are no longer a pageant, we are a competition."

In place of the swimsuit segment, contestants will take part in a live interactive session with the judges demonstrating their passion, intelligence, and overall understanding of the job of Miss America. Instead of the traditional gown portion of the competition, contestants are encouraged to wear attire that makes them feel confident, expresses their personal style, and shows how they hope to advance the role of Miss America.

Former Miss Americas are NOT about to clean up the organization's mess — not after board members protected executives who exchanged emails so crude, you'd think they were on an Access Hollywood bus with Donald Trump.

In fact, former winner Mallory Hagan said the board of directors' request to help them find new leaders is so insulting, she's laughing at it!

As we reported, former CEO Sam Haskell resigned from the organization after leaked emails showed that he and other now-resigned execs routinely mocked the bodies and sex lives of former pageant winners. Not to mention, laughed when a writer called them c***s.

In attempt to make up for the trash talk, the board of directors said it wants former Miss Americas and state directors to help in the search for new leadership, asking each on Wednesday to nominate four people to serve on a search committee that will also include multiple board members.

To the board's dismay, however, Hagan did not take the offer as an honor, but as "an insult to every Miss America and volunteer's intelligence." She crowned the request as nothing but a shrewd attempt by the "complicit" board members to save their jobs, telling The Associated Press on Thursday:

Now they've banded together, from 1948's BeBe Shopp Waring (now 87 years old!), to 2013's personally insulted Mallory Hagan (above) to 2017's Savvy Shields, to say enough.

The dream of a million girls who are more than pretty… is actually a disgusting nightmare behind the scenes.

HuffPost got their hands on three years of internal emails from the Miss America organization, thanks to two inside sources disturbed by what they regularly saw. Now CEO Sam Haskell (above, right) and head writer Lewis Friedman have a lot to answer for.

The Chainsmokers Are Just The Latest Famous Faces To Be Accused Of Bigotry & Racism — *Sigh*

chainsmokers accused of racism

These celebs must have their publicists working overtime!

While many stars are properly media trained, others often find themselves in sticky situations due to speaking before thinking. Sadly, there are numerous stars who've been pegged as bigots for saying culturally insensitive things. Most recently, The Chainsmokers were put on blast after member Alex Pall said he couldn't bring his dog to China and alluded to the stereotype that the Chinese eat pups.

To make matters worse, this joke occurred during an interview with an Asian reporter at the Ultra China electronic festival. Smh.

And they weren't the only ones to get called out this weekend as, during the Miss America pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood dragged Donald Trump for handling the Charlottesville tragedy poorly. Be sure to discover the other accused bigots in Hollywood for yourself (below)…

Miss Texas just came for Donald Trump — and we're LIVING for it.

During Sunday's Miss America pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood was asked to comment on the Trumpster's controversial remarks following the tragic violence caused by white supremacists during the August march in Charlottesville. (In case you forgot, POTUS blamed the violence "on many sides.")
