Miss Universe 2012 Wrap-Up, Commentary, and Lessons Learned


by Prita Kohli

The Miss Universe 2012 Pageant is over, and Olivia Culpo (Miss USA) has been crowned the winner! In this video, Prita reflects on the pageant, from the Top 5 contestants to unexpected surprises.

The last two standing were USA and Philippines.

We were stunned that Miss South Africa 2012 didn’t make it into the Top 5, and we were surprised at the deep runs made by Poland, Russia, Hungary and Brazil. Also unexpected was the exclusion of Puerto Rico from the Top15. All of the girls at the Miss Universe 2012 pageant were incredibly gorgeous though, so it must have been difficult for the judges to pick the standouts.

And of course, the Pageant Professors would be remiss if we didn’t point out some super important “Lessons Learned” from this year’s pageant in Las Vegas. The question of whether you need to be a tall glamazon in order to win Miss Universe has been answered once and for all. Olivia isn’t short, but she isn’t 5’11” either. The key is to be yourself and be confident in yourself.
