I agree with her. I think this is going to do real damage to the Miss America brand, and I bet it's reversed within a couple of years.

You can’t take “beauty” out of “beauty pageant.”

A former Miss New York disagrees with the Miss America Organization’s plans to scrap its swimsuit contest and stop judging contestants on their looks — telling The Post on Tuesday that a true pageant queen needs to look the part.

“They’re trying to put more focus and emphasis on the woman and her accomplishments, I think part of the accomplishment is keeping a really good healthy figure and carrying yourself very proud and womanly,” said Judith Graham, 65, who represented the Big Apple in the 1973 Miss America when she was known as Judith Keithley.

“For me, I say stick with the program! It’s worked for almost a hundred years, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And I don’t think it’s broken at all!”

Graham, who played piano in the talent portion of the contest, said a contestant’s character is important — but they have to be the “whole package.”

It'll die w/i a few years.
People aren't going to watch it to see how politically aware the women are.

Miss America 2016, Betty Cantrell Maxwell doesn't agree with the change either, says she wishes that the former miss America's had been consulted before the decision was made....

The new head of the organization is a former Miss America and former Fox News host, Gretchen Carlson, and there are other former Miss Americas on the board.

This is Miss America's New Coke moment, and liek New Coke, I suspect it will need to be reversed quickly.

Why do they think field reporters in sports and co-anchors on the news are good looking? Because people want to watch them talk about local fires and politics?

The political correctness is laughable. All of the feminazis who want to pretend that Playgirl magazine has never existed can just STFU about all of this nonsense over nothing. I have not watched this pageant in decades, but I imagine that recently they have devoted, what, a measly portion of the broadcast to swimsuits ?! For decades they've had on TV these reality shows with gals and guys in swimsuits being voted off islands, etc...puh-leeeeze.

Isn't the effin target demographic of the ms america pageant show heterosexual dudes -- and not angry devotees of The View?!?!

Speaking of outrage, why are there no fat obese women in the "pageant". Why, this is an outrage. Fat women can be beautiful, too, I tell ya. Just sent a PM to Adele concerning this hateful bias (I'll send her a steak n cheese sub too in a few minutes).
