Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban, one of the most influential people in both the cable and sports industriesת actress Sara Foster, singer-songwriter Cole Swindell and former Miss America Sharlene Wells Hawkes will serve as celebrity judges for the 2017 Miss America competition.

Cuban owns the Dallas Mavericks and several business ventures. Foster is featured on VH1’s “Barely Famous.” Swindell is a Platinum-selling country music performer whose singles include “Chillin’ It.” Hawkes was crowned Miss America 1985.

2017 Miss America Competition finale will be broadcast live from Atlantic City on ABC on Sunday Sept. 11, hosted by Chris Harrison and Sage Steele.

Mark Cuban, owner of the 2011 World Champion Dallas Mavericks and best-selling author of ‘How to Win at the Sport of Business’, was an entrepreneur from the early age of 13, when he sold garbage bags door-to-door.
He is owner and Chairman of AXS TV, the largest independently owned and operated TV network in the U.S. He takes personal responsibility for programming AXS TV, and under his vision and leadership, it is the premier destination for live events, breaking news, and as-they-are-happening trends in the worlds of pop culture, music, fashion and entertainment.
Cuban also co-owns The Landmark Theater chain, Magnolia Pictures and Magnolia Home Video, along with partner Todd Wagner.
In 2005 Magnolia and Landmark Theaters pioneered a “day and date” movie release, meaning the movie was released in theaters, on TV (HDNet Movies), and on DVD all on the same day.
Taking this process one step further, Cuban created the “Ultra VOD” platform, releasing movies to video-on-demand on both cable and satellite up to four weeks prior to their release in theaters.
Cuban also co-founded Broadcast.com, the leading provider of multi-media and streaming on the Internet, which was sold to Yahoo! Inc. in July, 1999, and MicroSolutions, a leading national systems integrator, which was later sold to CompuServe.
On January 4, 2000, Cuban purchased the Dallas Mavericks. Under his leadership, the team’s home games have become a total entertainment experience. Despite initial criticism, he added much more to the usual game-day experience options like the Mavericks ManiAACs. His successful efforts have brought a sense of pride and passion to the fans.
Mark Cuban also appears on the Emmy award-winning show “Shark Tank.” The business-themed show returns to the ABC Television Network for its eighth season on Friday, September 23. A graduate of Indiana University, Cuban hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and resides in Dallas, Texas.
