Miss South Carolina Sounds Stupid

Miss South Carolina, Lauren Caitlin Upton, gave the FUNNIEST response during last night’s Miss Teen USA pageant!!!!

Host Mario Lopez stood by as she was asked, “Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?”

Miss South Carolina answered, “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uhmmm, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uhhh, our education over here in the US should help the US, uh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us.”

Miss Upton managed third runner-up!!!! Thanks, DListed! For more video of Miss Genius speaking, check out these interview questions!

    She sounds stupid? I believe she IS stupid. And how stupid is the pageant if this is what turns up in third place???

  • happy

    what the hell was that

  • suzy

    wow she is so stupid.

  • Sheila

    If that were the “Miss Airhead” contest, she would have won hands down!!!

    Is she plain stupid, or was she on drugs?

  • Oli

    this girl cant not even locate her own brain, disgraceful

  • Mady

    She is every American stereotype rolled into one!

  • sherhona

  • jfizzle

    HAHAHHAA

    just bend her over so i can fukk her smart!!!

  • angelina

    UH WHAT?

  • Cheerios

    Great! Another idiot….seems we produce more than our fair share. Third place is too good for Ms. South Carolina.

  • thanks :)

    save by the bell. I thought they teach these girls to give non answers to every question. Maybe she just was nervous.

  • Orchid

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I bet she is one of those who can’t locate the U.S. on a world map, but she knows ALL about make-up!

  • Patricia

    Uhh… did she even answer the question? I bet she can’t locate the US on a world map

  • mack

    She represent what people think about americans…. no culture !!!!
    She’s as dumnd as the other miss and that’s why she turns up in the thrid place!!!!

    I bet she doesn’t even no where IRAQ and SOUTH AFRICA are..!!!

  • LLM

    This is the product of reading too much tabloits. It is dumbing down people all over the world.

  • Flabbergasted

    Huh? Help South Africa, Iraq and Asian countries? She has some nerve seeing as her education obviously failed her.

  • http://blacktennispros.blogspot.com http://blacktennispros.blogspot.com

    This chick brings new meaning to the words “If I could do it again”.

  • Ryan

    I love the two comments above proclaiming Miss South Carolina stupid and then saying she was third place.

    “Third runner-up” = Fourth Place. Idiots.

    And to her credit, the question was a bit blah. Then again ANY other answer would’ve been better than what she gave.

  • cheddar

    Well I can’t help but wonder if she was just nervous. I think pageants are silly to begin with.

    #14 mack- It’s dumb, not dumnd. If you are going to insult Americans about their intelligence do it right. I bet she doesn’t even care about Iraq or South Africa. She is just trying to score points.

  • greenpeace

    who are the judges anyway? this just proved that they’re dumber (or more stupid) than her. they should just change this to Miss STUPID Teen USA pageant. I wonder what is the question and answer for the winner and 2nd runner up.

  • essie

    LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLll so glad i’m Canadian >P

  • NO LOVE

    LOL…an americans still wonder why they’re consider stupid!!!

  • Meat Popsicle

    I feel sorry for her. She will probably get every materialistic thing out of her shallow life that she wants because of her looks but she will never be able to truly know and understand the world around her.

  • opinion from Europe

    well, this Miss represents the fifth American citizen who can’t locate the US on the map.

  • Somalia

    She should have said “There should be Peace and love”

    I bet she can’t even find Canada on the Map

  • Mandy

    oh dear…

  • susan

    m.m.m. oh, wow! and i’m shaking my head!

  • jx

    oh god, so dumb. hahahaha. but yes, were the other constestants more stupid? what’s up with her getting third runner-up with that kind of an answer?

  • =)

    That didn’t make sense to me.

  • Milky

    “Oh, if i only had a brain. ha ha ha…”

  • SILVIA

    IAM SO DAMN HAPPY THAT I AM FROM ALBANIA EUROPE, I FEEL SOORRY FOR THAT BITCH.

  • BRITNEY

    her answer should have been i dunno, i can’t ever find it too. oh, just f*ck me yall I’ll blow ya if you let me win.

  • moi

    another “dumb blonde”

    Whats worse than her stupidity, is if you google Miss teen South Carolina and click on her blog she has the following to say.
    “Hey everyone!
    I hope that you all are having a wonderful Summer! I have been very busy since July 7th getting ready for MAOT! It has been an exciting whirlwind and I’m counting down every day until I leave!

    This week I have been writing numerous thank you notes, completing my wardrobe, practicing my talent, watching the news, and working out! I want to be prepared to the best of my ability for the national pageant! I found out that I am rooming with Miss Rhode Island’s Outstanding Teen, Molly Jacobs! I am excited for new friendships in Orlando! I am first in the White group; a great position to be in! ”

    Correct me if I’m wrong but the white group? with a capital W?….Is America still promoting rascism?…Rhetorical question.

    I’m white, disgusted and Irish by the way.

  • americansaredumb

    Lol she probably thinks Canada is overseas.

  • the_original_nika

    LOL #4,5 and 30.haha that was funny.
    I don´t like mario lopez, but did you see the look on his face, so funny. It can happen, a person not know where certain countries are located, I mean memorized by heart. But dear lord, the U.S is big.
    You can´t generalize, just because shes dumb (or appears), doesn´t mean all americans are.

    well, this Miss represents the fifth American citizen who can’t locate the US on the map.
    ————

    You beat me to this response. :mrgreen: This is however, embarassing. Must be related to Dubya. :lol:

  • Mary

    I didn’t understand what she said…..why was she talking about helping iraq and south africa when the question was about the US?

  • Lillianne

    Congratulations South Carolina. She’s your winner. Is this the best you have to offer?

  • Cowboy Bob

    She should have said “Because in this country we put way more emphasis on looks than on education. I’m a perfect example of that.”

  • kellygrrrl

    She sounds as smart as President Bush. They should hook-up

  • linda

    she’s probably one of those people that don’t have a map -_-

  • Lauri

    Does she even know where the U.S. is? I’m sending HER a map!

  • Me

    Wow!I actually watched it last night. This is proven that pageant is not about brains- its so about looks. That’s very good to know.

  • America

    And she represent South Carolina???? Brilliant!

  • Shorty

    Now, now ladies, she can’t help it if she also thinks that dog fighting is a sport — you know just like Vick and Jamie Foxx think. Right now several of my close friends who are from the south are hiding and won’t come out until this blows over. HA! HA! Somewhere a school teacher has shot herself/himself!!

  • mm

    OK I MUST SPEAK UP FOR THIS POOR CHILD, THE QUESTION SHE WAS GIVEN WAS A VERY THOUGHT OUT QUESTION HOWEVER IN COMPARISON TO THE OTHER QUESTIONS ASKED HER QUESTION WAS ONE MORE FIT FOR A POLITICAL DEBATE NOT A BEAUTY PAGEANT. THE OTHER 4 GIRLS WERE ASKED QUESTIONS THAT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THINGS TEENAGE GIRLS WOULD KNOW MORE ABOUT.
    I DONT THINK LAUREN IS STUPID I JUST THINK SHE WAS VERY CAUGHT OF GUARD BY THE QUESTION. IF I WAS HER MOTHER I WOULD SUE WHOMEVER SHE HIRED TO COACH THIS CHILD. IT IS CLEAR TO ME THE CHILD WAS NOT PREPARED TO ANSWER A QUESTION OF THIS LEVEL. JUST A THOUGHT BEFORE YOU JUDGE THIS CHILD YOU NEED TO POST A VIDEO OF THE OTHER GIRLS WITH THEIR QUESTION AND THEIR ANSWERS BECAUSE NONE OF THEM RECEIVED A QUESTION LIKE THIS.
    MISS COLORADO DESERVED THE TITLE BUT IT ISNT FAIR TO CALL MISS S. CAROLINA STUPID WHEN THE QUESTION CAME OUT OF LEFT FIELD!!!

    Holy Mother Of God!!!!!What was that???if I was Mario Lopez I would have knocked her with the mic on the head just to save her from herself, South Africa has the best learning institutions in Africa, girl needs to go back to school and ask for her tuition money back, its clear she did not learn anything…. come to South Africa we will help you learn something girl!!!!
