Caitlyn Jenner To Judge Miss USA & Miss Universe? Donald Trump Wants Her

Tue, June 2, 2015 5:55pm EDT by 10 Comments

Caitlyn Jenner is the newest ‘It Girl!’ Everyone wants her —  including The Donald! HollywoodLife.com has the scoop on how Donald Trump wants Caitlyn to be a judge for either Miss Universe or Miss USA!

When Caitlyn Jenner, 65, made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, she took everyone’s breath away! She looked so gorgeous — she could have easily been a beauty queen. Maybe Donald Trump, 68, thought so too because HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the The Donald wants Caitlyn to be a part of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants!

Having Caitlyn take part in one or both of these legendary beauty pageants would be a big event in transgender history. However, sources EXCLUSIVELY tell HollywoodLife.com that Donald wanting Caitlyn as a judge is less about the history books and more about the bottom line.

“Donald Trump sees dollar signs with Caitlyn and wants her on a future Celebrity Apprentice,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com, adding that the Donald “would love Caitlyn to be one of the celebrity judges for the upcoming Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.”

How interesting! Caitlyn appearing at Miss Universe or Miss USA would be an neat bit of coincidence, as Bruce Jenner’s second wife, Linda Thompson, was a beauty pageant winner, having won the Miss Tennessee Universe in 1972. That may be a reason for her to turn the job down — or to take it! Either way, sources tell HollywoodLife.com that the offers are out there.

Jackie Shahinian, Director of Public Relations for Miss Universe Organization, told HollywoodLife.com that “We would indeed love to have Caitlyn join us and are reaching out to make an offer for her to judge the Miss USA Pageant on July 12th. It is worth noting that we are the only pageant system which allows transgender contestants, which we allowed starting in 2011.”

HollywoodLife.com has also reached out to reps for Mr. Trump.

Wheaties Shows Support For Caitlyn Jenner, But Will They Have Her On Their Box? 

When Caitlyn was Bruce, he became a sports icon by appearing on the cover of the Wheaties cereal box in 1977. Now that she’s become a whole different kind of icon, would the cereal honor her again? Rhonda Short, Consumer Response Rep, told HollywoodLife.com that “Bruce Jenner has been a respected member of Team Wheaties, and Caitlyn Jenner will continue to be,” adding that “[w]e always appreciate hearing from our consumers, but of course, we do not discuss our future marketing plans.”

Do you think Caitlyn Jenner should be a celebrity judge at a Miss Universe pageant, HollywoodLifers?
