Donald Trump made the announcement via the Today Show that the Miss USA competition is heading south to Baton Rouge for the 2014 event!

The pageant will air June 8th on NBC. Donald Trump is the owner of the Miss Universe organization and says that Baton Rouge really wanted to host the competition and beat out at least 12 other cities for the honor. The pageant will feature contestants from all 50 states and will surely boost the local economy.

I've always liked to watch the pageant and figure out who'll be crowned the next Miss USA. Check out the Donald's announcement above and let us know what you think about the pageant moving from its usual home of Las Vegas to Baton Rouge below.
