Miss America Eliminates Swimsuit Portion of Competition

posted by Chelsey - 

Miss America announced that they will no longer have a swimsuit competition and be inclusive of women who are all different shapes and sizes.

That's some big news!

The swimsuit portion of the competition will be replaced by a live interaction with the judges. Another change they'll be making is to the evening gown portion. Now contestants will be able to wear whatever they choose.

McKenna Collins currently holds the crown as Miss Wisconsin and was initially disappointed in the news. Check out what else she had to say to WKOW 27 here.
