Now, Caitlyn might just become a new integral part of another very popular pageant: Miss USA.

Representatives for the pageant told Cosmopolitan magazine they have offered the Olympian a spot on the judging panel at this year’s pageant in July.

Though she has yet to respond, we’re feeling confident she could be there. As of 2012, Miss USA has been open to transgender contestants, and though none have graced the stage quite yet, Caitlyn’s participation could change that!

Coincidentally, Caitlyn’s stepson Rob Kardashian asked then-Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo one of the most-talked about questions of the 2011 Miss USA pageant: whether she thought transgender beauty queens should be allowed to compete.

Culpo answered yes, and later won both Miss USA and Miss Universe (and then went on to date Nick Jonasjealous!).
