Silly things they say

» Lauren Ashley, Miss Beverly Hills 2010, when asked about her views

on gay marriages:

“I feel like God himself created mankind and he loves everyone and

he has the best for everyone. If he says that having sex with someone of your

same gender is going to bring death upon you, that’s a pretty stern warning, and

he knows more than we do about life.”

» Miss Philippines 1996 contestant Jeanie

Anderson when asked to choose between being smart or being


“Well, I’d rather be beautiful because to be beautiful is natural.

But being smart you can learn ... um, a lot of things ... you can learn from

a lot of things being smart.”

» Caitlin Upton, Miss Teen USA 2007

contestant, when asked why she thinks 1 out of 5 Americans can’t locate

the US on a map:

“I personally believe that Americans are unable to do so because

some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and that I believe our

education, like, such as South Africa and the Iraq ... and I believe that our

education over here in the US should help the US or should help South Africa and

help the Iraq and the Asian countries.”
