Miss USA Olivia Culpo looks ecstatic while receiving her crown after winning the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant on Wednesday (December 18) at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nev.
The 20-year-old Boston University sophomore beat out 88 other beauty queens from around the world to become the first American lady to win the title since 1997. Olivia definitely brought home the crown at a time the country needed some uplifting news!
During her interview question, Olivia was asked if she ever regretted something in her life.
“I’d like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you’ll learn from it. That’s just life,” Olivia said. “But something I’ve done I’ve regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older.”
