Lauren Caitlin Upton became a YouTube sensation after giving a bumbling answer to a question during the Miss Teen USA beauty pageant.
Miss Teen South Carolina made it on Time magazine’s Top 10 Awkward Moments List at No. 9, for her comment about Americans not knowing about geography, because they lack maps.
In the Miss Teen America contest she answered on why one-fifth of Americans are unable to locate the United States on a map:
