Weird news of the day: The Iron Chef is one of the esteemed judges of the 2012 Miss Universe pageant. Hes in good company: His fellow arbiters include reality television personalities Nigel Barker, Brad Goreski, and a Real Housewife (theyre interchangeable), professional athletes Kerri Walsh and Pablo Sandoval, a random actor weve never heard of from Rock of Ages, and, finally, Scott Disick. Whatd you expect? This is a Donald Trump extravaganza. The married Tribeca Canvas chef will survey the swimsuit, evening gown, and interview categories in Las Vegas on December 19. We would tell the 89 ladies competing to show off their knife skills or something, but theres not even a talent portion. Classy. [Miss Universe via Morimoto/Twitter]
