The Miss America pageant is set to become a seven-episode reality show in an effort to boost TV ratings. For the first time in the competition's 85-year history viewers will vote for the contestants based on a seven-part reality TV series, FINDING MISS AMERICA. Contestants will live together and compete in preliminary competitions on the show. Eight of the 15 top finalists will be selected from the reality series, which will be aired next January (07).
