Guess who's hosting the Miss America pageant...

Mario Lopez. Yeah, the cutie who revealed the depth (srcsm) of his knowledge on The Weakest Link and whom we now know better as the one Emmitt Smith beat on Dancing with the Stars.

He did host the Miss Teen USA pageant in 2003, so he may do a better job than Desperate's James Denton who had the Miss America gig last year. M-Lo will not be singing the "There She Is, Miss America" theme. Maybe they'll play a recording of Bert Parks again.
