Finally, Reelz will broadcast Miss USA 2015 on July 12, 2015 in Baton Rouge.
The CEO of the cable network, Stan E. Hubbard, released a statement regarding the decision saying:
"The decision on the part of Reelz to acquire the rights to the Miss USAPageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of American tradition … The Miss USA Pageant is a perfect fit on Reelz where movies, entertainment and celebrity come together every day of the year."
Whatever you believe about Mr. Trump, NBCUniversal's decision to NOT air the 2015 Miss USA pageant on July 12 will impact Donald Trump FAR less than it will impact hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent bystanders, including the contestants who have dreamt of this opportunity for months, years, or all their lives.
People have differing opinions of what pageantry is, what pageant girls stand for, and whether or not they're still relevant in this day and age. But the fans of pageantry, the families of the contestants, and the former titleholders of the Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe pageants can tell you from personal, first-hand experience that pageants change lives .
