Miss South Carolina Teen USA 2007 Lauren Caitlin Upton's blonde moment:
IT was one of those priceless moments and even better than the last beauty pageant 'moment' where a Miss USA contestant slipped and fell.

Miss South Carolina Teen USA Lauren Caitlin Upton had a truly blonde moment when she took to the stage during the Miss Teen USA contest for the question time segment of the beauty contest.

The pretty blonde chose judge Aimee Teegarden, a TV actress, who asked her this question:

"Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the United States on a world map. Why do you think this is?"

Not a really tough question but one that threw Upton, but like a true pro she spoke with such confidence, you couldn't tell she had no idea what she was talking about.

Article courtesy of The Daily Telegraph ().

Comments: I saw the video for many times but the Youtube members may be too harsh on Lauren. The question wasn't very hard but weird. Mostly importantly the pressure being watched by millions of viewers around the US and the world led to this "blonde moment." The video has been viewed already by 11 million viewers on Youtube and has became a internet phenomenon. Pageant Beauties will attempt to contact Lauren and interview her on the incident. Watch her response below:

Will Miss Teen USA 2008 be on television?

It has been announced on March 2007 that NBC has not renewed the Miss Teen USA broadcast rights and Miss Teen USA 2007 will be the last year that the pageant is broadcasted on NBC. The popular pageant will become a smaller event helded in the same venue near the Miss USA pageant helded in late March or early April. Miss Teen USA 2007 Hilary Carol Cruz will also reign for the shortest amount of time. Pageant fans eagerly hope for a new solution and hope that the Miss Teen USA pageant can find a new station to broadcast.

Washington She did not do very well in the preliminaries but with her Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2005 2nd runner up title, she has experience and style.
New York Very good in swimsuit. Knows her to walk and turn. Not the best gown but should make the cut.

Indiana Good in the preliminaries and confident.

My Top Fifteen


Alaska Do well in the preliminaries and the sash factor might not be considered.
South Carolina Very good in preliminaries and stunning in evening gown.
Kansas Very tall and pretty.

The Miss Teen USA 2007 pageant will be helded in Pasadena, California for the first time. Although it is yet to be confirmed by the Miss Universe Organization, Wikipedia ()  has it as the venue of the pageant. Miss Washington Teen USA, Shalane Larango also made history as she is the first teen from the Miss America's Outstanding Teen pageant to compete in Miss Teen USA. She finished as second runner up in the national pageant, so she can easily bring Washington back into the semifinals after three years. More information later.
