Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump took self-guided tours of pageant dressing rooms, former contestants have claimed.

Tasha Dixon, Miss Arizona in 2001, said that Trump just came “waltzing in” while contestants were nude or half-nude as they changed into bikinis, according to CBS Los Angeles.

And BuzzFeed News reported Wednesday that four women in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant said Trump walked into their dressing room while they were changing.

“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,'” Mariah Billado, a former Miss Vermont Teen USA, told BuzzFeed.

“He said something like ‘Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.'”

It is alleged that Trump once bragged to American radio personality Howard Stern that he would walk in on dressing rooms at beauty pageants he owned.

According to CNN, Trump told Stern: “Well, I’ll tell you the funniest is that before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it.

“You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, the dresses. ‘Is everyone okay?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”

Last week, a tape from 2005 was released in which Trump boasted about grabbing women “by the p****.” Trump later dismissed his comments on the tape as “locker room talk.”
