Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas will help pick the 2017 Miss America, pageant planners announced Monday.
Douglas, fresh off a gold-medal win in Rio, will join Shark Tank's Mark Cuban and Disney Channel's Laura Marano to help judge the annual Atlantic City pageant, according to the Miss America Organization.

The 20-year-old's experiences, both positive and negative, make her a natural fit for the role.
At the 2012 London games, Douglas won gold in both team and individual all-around competitions.
And with her individual victory, she made Olympic history: Douglas became the first woman of color (of any nationality), as well as the first African American gymnast, to win gold in the event.
And in Rio, she made more history: Douglas, along with Aly Raisman, became the first American gymnasts to be members of two gold-medal winning teams.
Aside from Cuban and Marano, the Miss America judges' panel will also include former Miss America Sharlene Hawkes Wells, actress Sara Foster and country music singer Cole Swindell. The pageant will take place at Boardwalk Hall on Sept. 11 and will be broadcast live on ABC.
