I agree with Ernie on how the pageant outcome should a bit more understandable to the public. Here is how I think we can, in a realistic way, make that happen.
Opening- There is something so exciting about seeing all the contestants dancing onstage. A fun opening number with lots of choreography to a mix-up of the hottest hits during that time would be amazing.
Intros- Each contestant will introduce herself and her major(with the name of her College on the screen under her title so she won't have to say it) without the cheesy "From the state..." parts.Stating their majors would show how smart and accomplished they are. If the cheesy intros were cut out that would leave so much more time, at least 10-15 minutes, for something else in the show.
Semifinalists- I do agree that a top 15 should be kept, but only a top 15. Not a top 16. No gimmicks . Give the America's choice winner a prize package or something. As each top 15 semifinalist is called, show a snip it of a good moment of that contestant in interview, talking about how she has benefited from the MAO. That way there will be diverse responses instead of just focusing on scholarship amount, many will state scholarship amount they've received, Confidence growth, perseverance, Health and fitness development, impact of platforms, and so many other ways.
Top 15 competes in swimsuit, then announce the top 10 from there. Let the top 10 compete in talent. It does not have to always go Swimsuit, Evening gown, then talent. Many state pageant hold talent in the middle and it works out fine. After talent, let the top 10 compete in Evening gown.
After EG, the top 10 will change into their cocktail/interview dresses for OSQ. From the top 10, pull the top five, ask them the questions, competition over. Easy. Not too many confusing gimmicks, eliminations, and other stupid stuff. Miss America is not a reality show. The Oscar's and the Tony's are iconic award shows that are modern, but still have a way of keeping their class and elegance of their shows in tact, and their ratings are wonderful. Let Miss America do the same.
