Who better to assess the form and um, figures, of the 2010 contestants than the outspoken, flamboyant Weir. His love of beauty products and fashion put him in good company with the 51 glamour girls representing each state and the District of Columbia.
The Miss USA pageant, which is owned by Trump and airs this Sunday on NBC, announced its full slate of judges yesterday. The panel capitalizes on some of the pre-pageant drama that began earlier this week when contestants posed for their official photos in racy lingerie -- a move Trump said was meant to defy the "pageant princess" stereotype.
Now comes word that the judges who've signed on to help choose this year's winner have the perfect skill set to evaluate her many talents.
Besides Weir, there's a fashion expert (Glamour Executive Editor-at-Large Suze Yalof Schwartz); a former Vogue cover girl turned jewelry mogul (Trump's wife, Melania), a controversial ex-Miss USA (Tara Conner), and a domestic goddess (TV chef Paula Deen).
Who knows, maybe we'll end up with a sexy winner who also turns out a mean chicken and dumplings, but looks like she never ate a bite.
Meanwhile, the Miss USA Organization announced that Joan and Melissa Rivers will conduct backstage interviews to help give the pageant a red carpet vibe -- and maybe to advise the ladies on cosmetic enhancements?
