Behind the judges’ board for Miss America 2019 were previous expert boxer Laila Ali, Wilson Phillips’ vocalist Carnie Wilson, previous American Idol judge Randy Jackson, down home music songstress Jessie James Decker, HBO TV character Soledad O’Brien, radio host Bobby Bones and Drybar organizer Alli Webb.
The current year’s opposition was boundlessly unique in relation to a very long time past. The bathing suit segment of the night was nixed in the wake of the #MeToo development, which prompted the judging of the women with an emphasis on their meetings and a big motivator for they, restricted to what they look like.
Previous Miss America, Gretchen Carlson, the recently printed seat of the Miss America Organization’s Board of Trustees, reported the adjustment in June. “We are never again an expo. We are an opposition,” she said amid a Good Morning America appearance at the time. “We will never again judge our applicants on their outward physical appearance. That is enormous! What’s more, that implies that we will never again have a bathing suit rivalry.”
Also, that wasn’t the main change to the prevalent rivalry. Carlson clarified that the night outfit segment would now enable the ladies to pick their type of clothing, including pantsuits.
“We are never again judging ladies when they turn out in their picked clothing,” the previous Fox News have clarified. “It will be what leaves their mouth that we’re occupied with when they discuss their social effect activities.”
