Miss USA still looking for a new host

Cheryl Burke Steps Down As Miss USA Co-Host in Wake of Donald Trump Controversy


While many got to spend the long 4th of July weekend celebrating with friends and family, it looks like those who are in charge of organizing the 2015 Miss USA pageant didn't get a break at all.

Sources tell ET that the producers of Miss USA and execs at the Reelz channel are working overtime to try and find replacement hosts after MSNBC news anchor Thomas Roberts and Dancing With the Stars' Cheryl Burke dropped out of hosting the pageant last week.

According to sources, producers are scrambling to find possible hosts, but it's more difficult than anticipated. They have reportedly made multiple offers, but no one has yet to accept them, and producers are hoping to announce the new hosts early this week.
