Carson Kressley, host of ABC’s True Beauty and Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, will once again bring his one-of-a-kind humor and showmanship to the pageant as co-host. Also co-hosting will be Robert “Sandy Beach” Hitchen, who is also the pageant’s co-writer and co-director along with Mark Dahl.
Miss’d America 2010, Michelle Dupree (Scott Cooper) will also co-host portions of the pageant. Melanie Rice and Richard Helfant, president of the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance, will serve as executive directors.

sets, incredible production numbers featuring the lovely and talented Erika Schiff, along with the Miss’d America Dancers and even more contestants,” said Helfant in a media release.
