Miss Universe 2012: Miss USA crowned winner as Miss Great Britain fails to reach final
Olivia Culpo beat 88 competitors to win Donald Trump’s Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas
Miss Universe has been won by Miss USA at the Planet Hollywood casino in Las Vegas. Olivia Culpo beat 88 other women to be crowned Miss Universe in Donald Trump’s annual pageant.
Olivia, a 20-year-old university student from New York, takes the crown from last year’s Miss Universe, Leila Lopes from Angola.
Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon was runner up while Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, was third.
But it was Miss USA who caught the attention of the judges and she took to Twitter to thank her fans for the support as she became the first American to win the title of Miss Universe in fifteen years.
" Thank you EVERYONE who came out to support me tonight. I can't believe USA finally did it! "
