This was a short-lived attempt at placing a beauty pageant program in the context of a regular daytime game show - a sort of early American Idol format without the focus on talent. Aired in mid-afternoon on, as I recall, ABC-TV, it really represented little more than filler on the last-rated national television network at the time. ("Batman" was ABC's only real hit in that era.) That it was little more than eye-candy pap is strongly suggested by the fact that in its one year run it had no fewer than three regular hosts.
