Swimsuits and beauty pageants go together like peanut butter and jelly. It's hard to imagine one without the other, but the Miss America pageant has recently decided to go without the body-baring segment going forward. In fact, the world-famous pageant isn't even a pageant anymore, it's a competition.

The pageant-turned-competition will reportedly now focus more on the talent, intelligence, and "leadership skills" of the contestants. Replacing the swimsuit portion would be a "live interactive session with the judges," the organization reports. Contestants will also be asked to demonstrate their "passion, intelligence and overall understanding of the job of Miss America."

The swimsuit portion isn't the only part of the competition that's getting a facelift. The evening dress portion is also getting cut. Instead, contestants will wear an outfit that "makes them feel confident" and is an expression of their own, personal style.

Gretchen Carlson, former Fox News anchor, former Miss America, and current chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization, told Good Morning America, "We've heard from a lot of young women who say, 'We'd love to be a part of your program but we don't want to be out there in high heels and a swimsuit,' so guess what, you don't have to do that anymore."

Well, it's nice that the ladies of the Miss America pageants, oops, competitions get to decide whether or not they want to strut around a stage, nearly naked, and wearing high heels. Heck, if there were more glitter and oil involved, you could be forgiven for mistaking it for a different sort of entertainment. Come this September, you're about to see a very different Miss America.
