Donald Trump buys out NBC's interest in Miss Universe Organization

Donald Trump is now the sole owner of The Miss Universe Organization.


Previously, Miss Universe was jointly owned by NBC and Trump, and each controlled 50 percent of the organization.
NBC did not immediately return FOX411's request for comment. 
Then NBC dumped Trump in June following controversial comments he made about Mexican immigrants. The network cancelled plans to air the Miss USA pageant—a precursor to Miss Universe—and the July 12 pageant was forced to find another home on the little-known Reelz Channel.

The Nielsen company said 925,000 people watched Olivia Jordan of Oklahoma crowned as Miss USA on Reelz.
The viewership was sharply down from the 5.6 million people who watched last year on NBC.
In records that date back to the 1970s, the pageants had ranged from 4.6 million viewers in 2013 to 38.1 million in 1979.

That makes sense....and Trump will laugh all the way to the bank, haha!

Maybe if the pageant sells to WME/IMG it will result in girls who deserve to be in the top 15 making it and better choices as the winner. I wonder if it will result is a sexier approach to the pageant with an emphasis on modeling, etc.

Very cool! Maybe this will start a new and glamorous era! And maybe there will be an announcement soon when and where Miss Universe will be held.

And I hope this means the end of boring winners and the end of Jeanie Mai's incessant and annoying chatter!
