Miss USA lost hosts Cheryl Burke and Thomas Roberts following co-owner Donald Trump's controversial stance on immigration – but one host vows to stay with the pageant.
PEOPLE has exclusively learned that Jeannie Mai, who took issue with the real estate tycoon's comments, remains committed to the pageant's cause and will be in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 12 as planned.
"While I absolutely do not condone Mr. Trump's statements, after careful deliberation I have decided to continue my role as co-host of the upcoming Miss USA Pageant," Mai, 36, says in a statement.

As if running for president of the United States of America wasn't enough, now Donald Trump has added a multimillion-dollar lawsuit to his 2015 to-do list.
Following the massive fallout from comments he made about Mexican immigrants during his candidacy announcement, Spanish-language network Univision quickly broke ties with Trump's Miss Universe Organization – followed by NBC and Macy's – leading the real estate tycoon to announce a $500 million lawsuit against Univision on Tuesday.
"We have a very strong lawsuit," Trump tells PEOPLE. "We had a binding contract that they illegally broke."

When Donald Trump announced his bid for president, he made a number of inflammatory comments about Latin-American immigrants to the United States.
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump, 69, announced to a crowd of press and likeminded supporters on the steps of Trump Tower on June 16. "They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
