Rehearsals are underway for Sunday’s Miss USA competition and INSIDE EDITION was there as the contestants practice hitting their marks for the show's big opening number.
The new hosts are Todd Newton and Alex Wehrley. They may not be well known but they are experienced.
Todd is the host of Family Game Night on the Hub cable network and Alex has worked as a TV reporter and host. She's also a former Miss USA Wisconsin.
Natasha Martinez, Miss California USA, is of Mexican descent, but she said despite Donald Trump’s comments, she never considered withdrawing from the pageant.
She told INSIDE EDITION: "I absolutely did not think about pulling out of the pageant for a couple of reasons. One, because this has been a long journey for me. It has been my dream to compete on the Miss USA stage. Two, because I understand that the Miss USA organization was here before Trump and it will be after Trump."
Trump reiterated his tough stand on illegal immigration in a combative interview with NBC's Katy Tur, saying: “There's nothing to apologize for. You are such a naive person."
Tur then asked: “If you had an illegal person working for you, what would you tell them?”
“I would tell them you have to go back,” he said.
Hillary Clinton weighed in on the Trump controversy during her first TV interview and slammed the billionaire.
“I was very disappointed in those comments. I feel very bad and disappointed with him,” she said on CNN.
Hillary is taking fire herself for the way her aides corralled the press during a July 4th parade this weekend in New Hampshire. They used a rope to keep photographers under control.
But it turns out the Clinton's have used the rope technique before, back in 1992, when Bill was running for president.
