1. Do celebrities who are not involved in pageants make good judges? Should the Miss America pageant have more judges with pageant experience? Why or why not?
2. Who is your favorite celebrity on this year’s Miss America judging panel? Why?
Definitely Carla! I love watching her on “Top Chef” and “The Chew”, and I am excited to see her this year at Miss America. She has such an amazing personality and I hope she gets a chance to share that with the contestants. I am also very interested to hear her on-stage questions and hope that it is food/nutrition related because I too am very passionate about that topic.
