5 Things You Don’t Know About Miss Teen South Carolina USA Caitlin Upton (VIDEO)

Imagine completely flubbing an answer on live TV. For 2007 Miss Teen South Carolina USA Caitlin Upton, this nightmare was her reality…

Who could forget the amount of “uh’s” we heard when she gave her response when asked why a fifth of Americans aren’t able to locate the U.S. on a world map during the Miss Teen USA competition in 2007. It was a hard answer to forget — "some people out there in our nation don't have maps" — not to mention super embarrassing. She became an overnight internet sensation and gained a reputation as “that pageant girl” who completely choked on national TV. However, she somehow placed 4th in the competition. Not too shabby!

So what has the infamous starlet been up to since her tongue-twisting days? Caitlin brushed off her beauty pageant mishap and signed with Donald Trump’s modeling agency, Trump Model Management. She also competed on The Amazing Race in 2010, and recently starred in her first film. Currently, she's busy pursuing a modeling career and staying connected with her fans via Facebook and Instagram.

We hope that someday Caitlin will be known as more than just the ditzy pageant girl who flubbed on national TV!
