Miss USA Olivia Culpo Wins Miss Universe Pageant!

Miss USA Olivia Culpo looks ecstatic while receiving her crown after winning the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant on Wednesday (December 18) at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 20-year-old Boston University sophomore beat out 88 other beauty queens from around the world to become the first American lady to win the title since 1997. Olivia definitely brought home the crown at a time the country needed some uplifting news!

During her interview question, Olivia was asked if she ever regretted something in her life.

“I’d like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you’ll learn from it. That’s just life,” Olivia said. “But something I’ve done I’ve regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older.”

    Miss Venezuela was by far the most beautiful contestant in the final 5. Absolutely stunning. Wish I could look like her.

    we all know she only won it because America needed some ‘good news’ after all the bad stuff that has been going on. Obviously rigged. Miss Philippines should have won. She’s a lot more prettier & gave one of the best answers ever.

    Miss Phillipines was robbed!
    donald duck interfered in the results because he doesn’t like ambitious women who want to get ahead in life.

    i am a white american and even i feel that miss usa should not have even cracked the top 5. i just thought it was courtesy for her to get ranked in the top 5 but then when she made it to top 3 i knew something was wrong.

    i hated miss usa’s torso and her dress, her hair, i hated her answer.
    miss phillipines had the best answer. she had the best dress, best hair, best skin and the most wholesome and naturally beautiful. to me she is more than a woman, she is a lady. and smart! and ambitious.

    i mean i just hated her hairdo for the evening gown competition. you can tell that she was prepared to win by the bun on her head. i didn’t like the bun. it looked awful.

    Nikki Says:

    Shows that the whole show is rigged. There were prettier girls, she tripped, and gave not the best answer.
    The judges shouldn’t all be from the US, they should bring in international unbiased judges that should NOT be able to vote for their own country.

    Miss World 2012 Host: CHINA, Winner: CHINA
    Miss International 2012: Host: JAPAN, Winner: JAPAN
    Miss Universe 2012: Host: USA, Winner: USA

    Ms. Philippines gave a decent and intelligent answer compare to other candidates. I expected Ms. Philippines to win the crown.
    I don’t understand what’s the judges criteria in Q & A portion,
    because Ms. USA answer is very simple.

    Awful midsection. Whoever voted for her is blind.

    Where ever the ‘Miss Universe’ is held- the girl that is from that country will most likely win. It’s rigged. Always has been, always will.

    well then i guess they weren’t gonna let an asian cheat again. and miss phillipines is the one who had to suffer for it. too bad.

    Actually, considering how hard USA’s question was, she did great. It’s hard to answer that question without getting too personal or TMI. Had Venezuela gotten an easier question (hers was also difficult) and answered in her native language (she was having a hard time answering in English), she easily could’ve won. Philippines had an easy question, so it was easy to give a great answer. Don’t remember Australia’s or Brazil’s.

    Culpo is just too overtanned, over-dieted and stringy looking for my taste. She’s pretty but Miss Phillipines was STUNNING, had a better body and seemed very intelligent – shame she didn’t win.

    Holly Says:

    Proud to be from RI!
    But I have to say, she was not the prettiest and her bathing suit body disturbed me. She is cute, not gorgeous.

    pretty enough… but a bit, just a bit, too thin… beauty contests are somewhat subjective so there will always be people who don’t agree who the winners should be…

    Megan Says:

    Did they read the list backwards? Is it? There is only this explanation. Brazil, Venezuela and Australia were more beautiful. And USA’s dress! C’mon! Horrible!

    YS Says:

    Her body looks weird.

    So... Says:

    none of the contestants were outstanding.

    Olivia Culpo is petite. Wikipedia lists her as 5ft5, which means she may actually be only 5ft4 as they always add an inch.

    Must be one of the shortest winners ever. She’s pretty but not extremely so. Perhaps her personality shone through to the judges :-)
