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.

Miss Nebraska, Teresa Scanlan!

At the tender age of 17, Teresa became the youngest woman to be honored with the title of Miss America since 1921 at Saturday's pageant.

Charming her way throughout the entire competition, she won the judges over with her winning smile, grace and perhaps even her flawless rendition of "White Water Chopsticks" on piano.

Whatever it was, we're just happy it worked! She's simply darling!

Congrats girl! Do lots of good with this opportunity!

Miss America Launches Youth Clothing Line

They're brainwashing going after them while they're young.

The Miss America pageant has announced they will be debuting a kids clothing line "Little Miss America".

The new range, which is made to make girl "feel good" about themselves will include hoodies, purses, polo dresses, bathrobes, ballet slippers and other styles that will retail for less than $25.

Actually these are probably going to be the cheapest things any pageant mom will buy for their little beauty queen!

Thoughts???
