Miss USA Pageant Gets New Co-Hosts After Donald Trump Backlash

The Miss USA pageant has found its two new co-hosts after original hosts Cheryl Burke, Thomas Roberts, and Jeannie Mai dropped out because of Donald Trump‘s racist comments.

Game show host Todd Newton and former Miss Wisconsin USA Alex Wehrley will be taking on the job for this coming Sunday (July 12), when the pageant will air on the Reelz network. Julie Alexandria will be acting as a backstage correspondent, TMZ reports.

NBCUniversal cut ties with Donald after his comments about immigrants, including saying Mexicans are “rapists” who are “bringing drugs” into America.
