Miss USA Was Crowned Miss Universe 2012 Breaking 15 Year Dry Spell [VIDEO]
Congratulations to 20 year old Olivia Culpo, a Boston University sophmore and self described "nerd", who was crowned Miss Universe last night breaking a 15 year dry spell. An American had not won the right to be called Miss Universe since Brook Lee won the title in 1997.
Yesterday at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas, Olivia beat out 88 other women representing all parts of the world. Janine Tugonon, Miss Philippines, came in second and Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, came in third. The pageant aired live on the NBC network and was streamed to more than 100 countries.
Olivia will receive an undisclosed salary, a whole new amazing wardrobe, limitless supply of beauty products and a luxury apartment in New York City! She is definitely set, gonna be livin' that life!
But what's really making headlines was Miss Venezuela's response to a question that had people and the hosts Andy Cohen and Guiliana Rancic scratching their heads.
