In 1950, when Yolande Betbeze, winner of the rival Miss America pageant, refused to pose for publicity pictures while wearing a swimsuit, pageant sponsor Catalina decided to pull their sponsorship off the pageant and create their own competition. Donald Trump, the current owner of Miss USA, bought the pageant in the year 1996.
