Miss Teen USA South Carolina 2007 with Subtitles



This is the stage of a beauty pageant where the girls have a chance to show off their intelligence.

The question was:

Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?

Who says you can't have brains and beauty? :-)


And here she is attempting the question again:

Hi Graham! It's Inés
I've just watched the video and I think that it's an embarrasing video to watch (although it's a bit funny).
How can a young person think that other people can't locate their own country because they don't have maps, and not because they are ignorant and stupid?
In my opinion a person can be beautiful and smart at the same time, those words are not oppisite. If someone is pretty it doesn't mean that he or she doesn't have to study because they can always participate in beauty contests.

Anyway, that girl must have felt humiliated after watching the video and thinking about her embarrasing answer.

See you on Wednesday!

Hi Inés,

I agree that it makes uncomfortable viewing. I almost feel sorry for her.
