Miss USA 2015 Pageant Live Stream – Watch Online!
The Miss USA 2015 pageant is taking place on Sunday from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Gossip Cop has a live stream. The annual competition is airing on the Reelz network after NBC dumped it following pageant owner Donald Trump’s remarks that many Mexican immigrants are “criminals” and “rapists.” Despite the controversy and the original hosts, judges and performers dropping out, still contestants from all 50 states, as well as Washington DC, will compete for the crown in evening gown, swimsuit, and interview categories. Watch the Miss USA live stream below.
As Gossip Cop noted, the Miss USA pageant was thrown into flux after Trump’s comments, leading its hosts Cheryl Burke and Thomas Roberts to quit, as well as its judges, including former Miss Universe winner Zuleyka Rivera, Emmit Smith, HGTV star Jonathan Scott, and E! News host Terrence Jenkins. The show’s performers Flo Rida, Craig Wayne Boyd, and Natalie La Rose also left in protest.
Since then, game show host Todd Newton and Alex Wehrley, a former Miss Wisconsin and actress, have stepped in as the hosts. And the judges panel will now be comprised of a number of former beauty pageant winners, including Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether, Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih, former Miss Miss USA and Miss Universe Brook Lee, and Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner.
Last year, Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez won the pageant. But who will win this year? The Miss USA pageant begins at 8 p.m. EST. Note: The live stream is no longer available.
