Miss USA Crowned Miss Universe 2012 by missbond007: 4:57am On Dec 20, 2012
A 20-year-old Boston University sophomore and a self-described 'cellist-nerd' brought the Miss Universe crown back to the United States for the first time in more than a decade when she won the televised contest on Wednesday.

Olivia Culpo beat out 88 other beauty queens to take the title from Leila Lopes of Angola during the two-hour competition at the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Culpo wore a tight navy blue mini-dress with a sequined bodice as she walked on stage for the competition's opening number.

Miss Philippines, Janine Tugonon, came in second, while Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, placed third.

All the contestants spent the past two weeks in Sin City, where they posed in hardhats at a hotel groundbreaking, took a painting lesson, and pranked hotel guests by hiding in their rooms.

Culpo was the first Miss USA winner from Rhode Island when she took the national crown in Las Vegas in June.

Olivia Culpo, 20, a brunette from Rhode Island, was chosen by a 10-judge panel from 89 contestants representing countries ranging fromIndia to Kosovo and Britain.

Culpo, wearing a red, long-sleeved dress for her final look, was the eighth winner from the United States in the contest’s 60-year history, and the first Miss USA to take the title since 1997.


Miss Philippines, 23-year-old Janine Tugonon, wasthe runner-up and Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, came third after the top five answered brief questions posed by the judges.

Culpo takes the place of last year’s winner Leila Lopes, who was the first ever Miss Universe from Angola.

Miss Guatemala, Laura Godoy, was chosen Miss Congeniality after the two-hour pageant that featured live performances by US pop group Train and Nigerian-born Australian singer and dancer Timomatic.


Contestants must be aged between 18 and 27, unmarried and with no children.

The contest was broadcast live on US television from the Planet Hollywood hotel and casino in LasVegas and seen by an estimated 1 billion viewers on TV and online in 190 countries, organisers said.

Culpo will travel the world for the next year representing the Miss Universe Organisation and a charity of her choice.

After reaching the top five, Culpo was asked to name one thing she would never do again. “Picking on my siblings growing up,” she replied.

The contest, owned jointly by businessman Donald Trump and the NBC network, held a momentof silence for the 20 children and six staff gunned down at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14. — Reuters

She's a bit infantile, though cute. Latinos are usually cute to behold.
I prefer Mrs. Guatemala to this Miss Us.

graluxxy054: I bet you that nose and hip must have been touched by a surgeon
Why do you say that? You don't believe there are girls who are naturally beautiful?
Why would a 20-year old Latina girl go for surgery to have what most Latina women have naturally?

Ms US was beautiful BUT not the most beautiful girl there. I think the US judges and host just favored her.

This happens all the time. I mean the whining.
As long as it isn't a black woman winning, trust blacks to whine about it.

Oh please... im not full black myself. I dont care about color. Did u actually watch the program? No one is whining! If u read the post properly everyone is saying she is beautiful. I said from my perspective there were far more beautiful girls there AND i didnt find most of the black girls this year attractive. No black person here is whining. Did you see the post about Ms Nigeria... most ppl dont even think she's pretty. Why are you trying to twist things and make it look like EVERYONE is complaining cause she wasnt black? She got more positive feedback from NLanders than Ms Nigeria herself. Even my white gf said they didnt think she was the most beautiful girl there... Would u call them racist as well?
