Bret Michaels to co-host the 2010 Miss Universe Pageant
The Donald apparently sticks with the people he trusts -- Bret Michaels, who won Donald Trump's third "Celebrity Apprentice" cycle, has been tapped to co-host Trump's upcoming Miss Universe Pageant, the organization announced Tuesday.
Michaels joins a roster of male hosts that over the years has included Dick Clark, Bob Barker and Johnny Carson -- though the most recent male hosts have been Billy Bush, Jerry Springer and Mario Lopez.
The event, which features Natalie Morales of the "Today" show co-hosting with the former Poison frontman, will be held in Las Vegas on Aug. 23.
So, is it terribly right or terribly, terribly wrong for a hair-metal rocker to host a beauty pageant? Let us know in the poll after the jump.
