After a long silence from the Miss Universe Organization, Todd Chrisley has been announced as the new director for Miss Florida USA.

Miss Universe confirmed the new directors after former director, Grant Gravitt and Tel-Air Interests, were fired for reasons that remain unclear. Gravitt claimed in an e-mail sent to titleholders the decision had to do with dethroning Genesis Davila as Miss Florida USA 2017 after reports arose she cheated multiple times throughout the state competition. The Miss Universe Organization claims it is because Tel-Air did not pay to renew their franchise.
The Chrisleys are no strangers to reality TV or the pageant world. The family just wrapped up their fifth season of “Chrisley Knows Best“. The show follows the family: Todd, Julie, Lindsie, Savannah, and Chase in their everyday lives.

As a Miss Florida USA local titleholder, I am so excited to welcome the Chrisleys to Florida! I am so excited to compete at Miss Florida USA this summer!
