Going once, going twice... sold! In the boldest move of the year (bigger than announcing his presidential run) Donald Trump has sold Miss Universe Organization to superstar agents WME - IMG.
While many pageant fans are shocked, there are several Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe hopefuls out there who are breathing a sigh of relief after this year's fiasco with the live national telecast of the Miss USA 2015 pageant being axed by NBC at the final hour. So what do the new owners have in store?
WME represents many famous celebrities, with their talent roster including top model Cara Delevingne. Bottom line - this change could bring even more opportunities for pageant titleholders worldwide to expand their horizons in the fashion and entertainment industry. You go, girls!
