As you've probably heard by now there will no longer be a swimsuit competition as part of the Miss America contest.

(CNN)The next edition of the Miss America pageant will scrap swimsuits and will be more inclusive to women of all sizes, the contest announced Tuesday. "We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance. That's huge," she (Gretchen Carlson, the chairwoman of the Miss America board of directors) said.

Carlson also said the new Miss America competition will be more inclusive to women of "all shapes and sizes."


Carlson did not respond when asked if the new rules were meant to be similar to the rules for beauty contests held by the Soviets.
