When the event first started in 1983, all semi-finalists had to go through the interview segment in the preliminary round. But starting in 2003, the interview segment was only applied to the last 5 finalists. So appearance alone could take a contestant to the final five, and apparently Lauren Caitlin Upton had the looks.

True, although for women the most serious transgression would be to look bad in the literal sense. This one could pick her nose and eat it on TV and wake up the next day with a dozen spokesmodel offers because she's a knockout. All the power to her. Milk it (but maybe have someone show you where the milk comes out of the cow).

True, but America is also all about redeption. You can always get a second chance with the American public, as they love good comeback stories.

False.

There are no Democrats in South Carolina.

As soon as I find Nicole's real killer, I'm sure I'll get mine.

The Carolina Panthers are located just due north to her state, so in a few years, such might be on this squad. Her looks could probably automatically place her on the TopCats.

We know what happened to two of the cheerleaders don't we ? :roll:


Charlene

Here's her revised answer...

"Well, personally, my friends and I, we know exactly where the United States is on our map. I don't know anyone else who doesn't, and if the statistics are correct, I believe that there should be more emphasis on geography in our education so people will learn how to read maps better."

I don't know, i think i prefer her original answer!

Among the statistics when it comes to Americans and geography:
  • One-third of respondents couldn’t pinpoint Louisiana on a map and 48 percent were unable to locate Mississippi.
  • Fewer than three in 10 think it important to know the locations of countries in the news and just 14 percent believe speaking another language is a necessary skill.
  • Two-thirds didn’t know that the earthquake that killed 70,000 people in October 2005 occurred in Pakistan.
  • Six in 10 could not find Iraq on a map of the Middle East.
  • While the outsourcing of jobs to India has been a major U.S. business story, 47 percent could not find the Indian subcontinent on a map of Asia.
  • While Israeli-Palestinian strife has been in the news for the entire lives of the respondents, 75 percent were unable to locate Israel on a map of the Middle East.
  • Nearly three-quarters incorrectly named English as the most widely spoken native language.
  • Six in 10 did not know the border between North and South Korea is the most heavily fortified in the world. Thirty percent thought the most heavily fortified border was between the United States and Mexico.
  • 63 percent of Americans aged 18 to 24 failed to correctly locate the country on a map of the Middle East.
  • Seventy percent could not find Iran or Israel.
  • Nine in ten couldn't find Afghanistan on a map of Asia.
  • And 54 percent were unaware that Sudan is a country in Africa.
  • Remember the December 2004 tsunami and the widespread images of devastation in Indonesia? Three-quarters of respondents failed to find that country on a map. And three-quarters were unaware that a majority of Indonesia's population is Muslim, making it the largest Muslim country in the world.
