The scores are based on physical and intellectual challenges. In addition to a judging panel the gaming industry will have the opportunity to vote for the ones they believe to be the most talented representatives.

Gambling and Beauty pageants

In the early 1950s, the U.S. Department of Energy started testing nuclear weapons just north of Las Vegas. However, Vegas, capitalized on it, offering specials at the casino bars on atomic cocktails and holding a beauty pageant, Miss Atomic Energy! said Linda Grandia.

Gambling in beauty pageants has been going on for decades around the world, although it is only legal in certain areas of the world. Sports betting, which beauty pageants fall under, did not become legal in the United States until the Supreme Court overturned a 26-year-old law in May.

In other parts of the world, such as the UK, Australia, Canada, Western Europe, and Dominican Republic sports betting is legal. People also bet illegally on beauty pageants on websites and mobile apps worldwide. Experts estimate that the worldwide betting on beauty pageants, while smaller than sports bets, is still lucrative. For example, economists believe that the amount of money bet worldwide on the Miss Universe Pageant was in excess of $50 million dollars.
