Miss Universe 2012 is won by host candidate Olivia Culpo, Miss USA, during the coronation night held on December 19, 2012, at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. She’s the 8th Miss Universe winner from USA and the 61st Miss Universe queen overall.
USA Wins Title at Home
She may not be one of the favorites during the preliminaries but the audience and judges are by her side. Olivia Culpo, the host candidate, won and she’s the third one to win the title of a beauty contest at home this year, the first was China in Miss World and the second was Japan in Miss International.
During the final question and answer portion, E! online noted that among the five finalists, Philippines had the best answer and Venezuela had the worst.
Check out their commentary:
Best Answer: There were some decent answers, but Miss Philippines did an exceptional job with her question about whether or not she felt Miss Universe should be required to know English. “For me, being Miss Universe is not about knowing how to speak a specific language. It’s about being able to influence and inspire other people. So whatever language you have, as long as your heart is to serve and you have a strong mind to show to people, then you can be Miss Universe.”
Worst Answer: Oh, Miss Venezuela. When asked what law she would want to implement and why, a clearly nervous Miss Venezuela, went around in circles with her answer. It had something to do about no new laws and surfing? We couldn’t even tell.
Do you agree with the results?
