As stated by Miss Srivastava, “After months of grappling with this decision, I have made the choice to resign from the title of Miss Teen USA2023. I am grateful for all the support of my family,my state directors, my sister queens, and the fans who have cheered me on since I won my state title. I will always look back on my time as Miss NJ Teen USA fondly, and the experience of representing my state as a first generation, Mexican-Indian American at the national level was fulfilling in itself. After careful consideration, I’ve decided to resign as I find that my personal values no longer fully align with the direction of the organization.” The shocking resignation of Miss Teen USA 2023 UmaSofia Srivastava was preceded by the resignation of Miss USA 2023 Noelia Voigt two days prior.

 

In response, the Miss USA Organization posted in similar fashion to the previous resignation, via Instagram, “We respect and support UmaSofia’s decision to step down from her duties. The well-being of our titleholders is a top priority. We are currently reviewing plans for the transition of responsibilities to a successor, and we will soon announce the crowning of the new Miss Teen USA.”

Miss America Updates Her Image

Welcome to the new ideal of Miss America. Under the auspice of new organization CEO Robin Fleming, the Miss America Organization has been implementing changes since she took the position in January of last year.

 

In the newest announcement, the Miss America Organization has updated several requirements or rules. And nothing is more antiquated than the former “anti-boyfriend” or “anti-fiancee” rules of yesteryear. As recently announced, the rule will no longer apply and Miss America is welcome to recognize a significant other. And what better way to celebrate than with the announced engagement if Miss America Madison Marsh.

 

According to Ms. Marsh, the organization was completely thrilled with the announcement and shared it to the corporate social media account. As stated following her announcement, “”I think a lot of women were really excited because this means that, in the Miss America Organization, you don’t have to hide your significant other anymore,” she said. “This should be a celebrated part of our life. Because it is life, and it’s something that’s beautiful, so we were all super excited.”

Rocha Cantú is also the franchise owner for Miss Universe Mexico, and his team will lead the planning of the 73rd Miss Universe competition to be held in Mexico later in 2024.

Miss Universe also announces that Olivia Quido-Co will take on the role of Vice President for Global Partnerships, focusing on implementing and expanding mission-driven work and corporate social responsibility around the world.

Our collaboration has been a fantastic partnership so far and I look forward to growing our legacy brand even further in the years ahead.”

“I’ve always thought there was a broader opportunity to bring Miss Universe’s massive audience more of what they’ve been looking for, in terms of products and merchandise,” said Rocha Cantú. “It’s one of the most famous names in beauty with an iconic legacy of over seven decades, and we are excited to utilize it to create more opportunities for women around the world. Everything we create will be grounded in our mission to uplift, empower, and inspire women to embrace their truest selves.”

Miss Universe eliminates age limits for all global pageants

New York, NY — The Miss Universe Organization announced the elimination of all age limits across the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) and all associated pageants for their 2024 season.

This was announced as R’Bonney Gabriel, current titleholder, walked as a surprise model in fashion label Tanner Fletcher’s NYFW SS24 show, for a collection titled “Beauty Pageant.” The show featured models of all ages, reminding the audience that women and beauty are not defined by age – and that the Miss Universe program should not be, either. “During our January show, R’Bonney was asked about an age extension, and she said – ‘if not now, when?’,” said Amy Emmerich, CEO of MUO. “She was our muse in making this decision, but it’s been a long time coming. As women, we all understand that youth is not and has never been a requirement for beauty, and there’s no reason why it should be a requirement for Miss Universe.”
This change will apply for all 2024 pageants globally. Starting then, every adult woman in the world will be eligible to compete to be Miss Universe. (Contestants must be 18 to join, and Miss Teen USA rules will not be changed.)

Paula Shugart, MUO President, said, “For years, we’ve had requests from fans and partners all over the world, reminding us that there is not a place for this restriction in an inclusive organization like ours. We agree, and look forward to this next chapter of the Miss Universe legacy.”Gabriel said, “As the oldest titleholder to date, I was very close to aging out of the competition myself, and I wanted my legacy here to be a shift in how we think about beauty and age going forward. I’m so glad to see that this will be a permanent change for my Miss Universe sisters.”“We are thrilled to have partnered with the Miss Universe Organization on a Beauty Pageant of our very own,’ says Fletcher Kasell, Co-Founder/ Co-Creative Director of Tanner Fletcher. “It’s wonderful to open up the world of Tanner Fletcher to other organizations who share a similar, uplifting and empowering vision. We are aligned on the belief that all people no matter the societal boxes they have been put into deserve to act as their authentic selves and be celebrated for it.”

For the 2023 season, Miss Universe also lifted restrictions around married women, divorced women, pregnant women, and mothers joining the program. To date, two mothers will be competing in this year’s finale. That show will take place in El Salvador on November 18 2023.
