Each new announcement by the rebranded Miss America Competition sounds more distant, like the social/political activists now running it have wandered further from mainstream America — and maybe life itself.

The new scholarship added to the Miss America 2020 Competition was overshadowed by a statement towards the end of the press release which detailed why the scholarship's benefactor wasn't allowed to compete in a local MAO pageant in the 1980's.

The Miss America Organization has apologized for a scholarship announcement issued Monday, which drew criticize from past pageant contestants and volunteers and continued the more than year-long "bye-bye bikini" controversy.

Has anybody ever seen one of these before i saved a couple from the trash
Will the Pageant stay in Atlantic City (where it belongs?)
Hate that they are not referring to these beautiful, talented and strong young women as Miss ....... Just saying the state sounds like they are a thing. Gretchen must like to be called Carlson.
The competition this year Sucks...get rid of talent portion, bring back swimsuit
The competition SUCKS. Get rid of the boring talent portion and bring back swimsuit
Our first Miss America! We can't wait!
Following the first night of the Miss America 2019 competition, several signs calling out chairwoman Gretchen Carlson as "so fake" have appeared in Atlantic City.
(Apologies this is long) This was sent to State EDs earlier today. Recent events have come to the attention of former Miss Americas and myself. We think some are of the details, but not all. Unfortunately, the lack of transparency and incompetency that spurred the states and formers into action have now been placed on the shoulders of our titleholders. It is imperative that recent events are made known. Regina Hopper called two meetings with contestants over the weekend. Here are details of what transpired: Significant changes are being made to the manner in which the phases of competition are being conducted and, accordingly judged, at the 11th hour. After months of being asked to describe the new format for which these contestants would be competing, and hiring producer Phil Gurrin, of Shark Tank fame, to help create an interactive interview “Shark Tank-type” phase of competition, Regina announced, along with Ernst&Young present via conference call, that on the telecast, the Top 15 will no longer compete in this phase as previously described. In fact the contestants will now submit questions to ask each other during this first phase of competition. Be advised, this is the time when the public and new celebrity panel were to get to know these contestants better via an extension of their interview. This is now being scrapped at the last minute despite contestants and state executive directors have prepared amongst anxiety and ambiguity. While the Miss State and Miss America must be strong, confident and flexible, this crosses a line with mere days before competition begins. These women have competed one way at the state level, prepared another way over the summer with ever-changing directives on this new phase of competition, and yet again another format change is being thrown at them at the last minute. More incompetence is exemplified, this time supported by a $200,000 consultant. Why did they ignore his advice? Why was he hired in the first place? This demonstrates incompetence. MAO, through its CEO and other leadership, are continuing the campaign of keeping state organizations in the dark and seeking to divide your state contestants from their state officials. At this first meeting, Regina asked all contestants not to communicate this to their State ED's. This supports Cara’s claim that this leadership wants to “keep things in the family”. This speaks to the lack of transparency and integrity. State directors are being left out production-wise and prep-wise of their respective state representative’s competition at Miss America. The contestants are having the rug pulled out from under them. Demanding the contestants keep this secret so as to help Regina cover up her incompetence is compounding the pressure on the contestants to do as they are told and to not reach out to their support system for fear of retribution. This is intimidation. MAO, through its CEO and other leadership, have been unwilling or unable to answer reasonable questions asked by the contestants. Sunday night, Regina called the second meeting with all 51 contestants. Confirmed documentation that contestants ask tough questions but Regina dodged and diverted from answering them. MAO, through its CEO and other leadership, is systematically, distancing contestants from the state and local programs. Contestants were directed not to refer to themselves as “Miss”-State, but rather “I am from the state of….” Fortunately, the contestants did announce they would be using “Miss State” regardless of what has been directed. This completely devalues the achievement they have earned and it is causing further confusion as to the identity of this program. Could this be laying the groundwork to eventually eliminate State organizations and have at-large (regional) competitions? The state representatives are confident young women who clearly see the the concerns related to integrity, incompetency and intimidation. At this Sunday night meeting contestants asked: 1) why they are changing things when they all competed under a certain criteria and are applying for the job of Miss America yet they can’t use that title for their current achievement. 2) for the employee contract but still were put off, as “Changes are still being made”. 3) why leadership has changed everything that is CORE to MAO brand and why setting the program back 50 years. Regina responded that it is “all about balance”. Regina explained she had to raise money and she had to do “whatever it took” to raise that money. (Note: this is the complete failure of this national leadership team since no money has been raised yet core elements of the program are being changed, expensive consultants are being hired then ignored, last minute-wholesale changes are announced, and the contestants are isolated from their support systems necessary to navigate and understand this chaos.) This speaks to lack of good governance and questionable ethics. 4) how they are supposed to recruit new participants when they themselves are unclear on what job they are interviewing for and what organization they currently represent. Contestants reported* a myriad of reactions after this meeting. (*Paraphrased for confidentiality) They expressed that they are now bearing witness to the type of mistreatment that Cara has experienced and described. They are distressed, confused and frustrated by the lack of transparency and integrity that leadership is now subjecting them to during their Atlantic City experience. This is preventing our young women from competing at their best in a competition for which they have prepared for and deserve honest and ethical leadership. We know that states are scared to speak out for fear of retaliation but now the titleholders, the very women some states cited as the basis for their delay in taking any action, are bearing the full brunt of this incompetence.
First year I've ever missed the Miss America parade and pagent. The thrill is gone. They took away the fun. Some traditions shouldnt be changed. 😢
