Miss Ameria contest drops swim suit segmentMiss America is dropping the swimsuit portion of its competition nearly 100 years after the annual event began.

Miss America chairwoman Gretchen Carlson said on Tuesday's episode of Good Morning America that the organization is ending the portion to redirect focus from candidates' physical appearance to their achievements.

"We are no longer a pageant," the 51-year-old television commentator and former Miss America winner said. "We are a competition."

"We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance. That's huge. And that means we will no longer have a swimsuit competition," she said.
