Instead of a summer working on his post-game with Hakeem Olajuwon, New York Knicks’ forward Amar’e Stoudemire is finding other ways to stay busy.
Stoudemire will highlight the list of judges for next month’s Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, pageant officials announced on Tuesday.
STAT will be joined by former ‘N Sync singer Lance Bass; Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell; comedian and performer Mario Cantone; and Barbara Corcoran, an investor from ABC’s entrepreneurial competition show “Shark Tank.” Also on the panel are Carla Hall, co-host of ABC’s food-and-talk show “The Chew,” and Deidre Downs Gunn, an obstetrician and gynecologist who was the last Miss America to be crowned in Atlantic City.
The Miss America pageant returns to New Jersey after being held in Las Vegas the past six years.
Stoudemire and company will judge the winner on September 15 as the pageant will be broadcast live from Boardwalk Hall.
