Reigning title holder, Joahnnalee Ucol, will be the last to have competed in the swimsuit portion of the Miss Hawaii Teen USA pageant. The Miss Universe organization announced today that it will be changing it’s format to Athletic Wear.
Pageant organizers have always said the swimsuit portion was meant show off the athleticism of the competitors. But the 15-19 age group is a bit young and the general feel from some is perhaps that they are being exploited.
The 2016 Miss Teen USA pageant will be held in Las Vegas on July 30.
