>The America's Next Top Model judge, 35, has a new job. He'll judge the Miss America Pageant, airing Jan. 29 on CMT.
ON THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TOP MODEL AND A PAGEANT QUEEN Top Model is about the way you look, and a pageant queen is about the platform you stand for.
ON HIS PAGEANT GAME PLAN I get a booklet on each girl. My wife helps come up with questions for them.
ON BEING A REALITY TV FIXTURE I could be worse things. Write "judge of beautiful women" on my tombstone. I'd be quite happy.
