Did Miss South Carolina Redeem Herself Today?

In case you missed it, Miss Teen South Carolina bumbled her way through the Q & A portion of the Miss Teen USA pageant and didn't exactly come off as the brightest crayon in the box (check out the video here). This morning on The Today Show she tried to save face by answering the question again. Watch the video and tell us what you think - was Miss South Carolina able to redeem herself?

Poor girl,but look at the bright side she had the guts to do what a lot of young girls just dream of.What she did was better than blanking out and saying nothing at all.....don't you think?

I feel sorry for this girl.... I think she was just nervous the first time around, but her second answer did sound a bit rehearsed.

Everyone answers questions better when you have time to think about it. Put her under pressure again, see how she does then!

I dunno. I still look at her like she's an airhead but I gotta say, that was a much better answer.

yeah, that was a really bad answer.... but how many of us can say we're that cute?? not me... i don't wanna say anything scathing about the poor girl out of jealousy..keep in mind she's only 18 too

And I kinda want to know what the people condeming her first AND second answer would've said. Quick, without researching or thinking too long, come up with an acceptable answer! Go go go.

Geez, you guys. She's human. She made a mistake. Maybe she still doesn't have a genius IQ, but neither do most of us.She has different interests than a lot of us, entering beauty pageants and such, but I don't think she's an airhead. I think we go into things like Pageants and assume the stereotype of all the girls being airheads, and that really blinds us to how they are in real life. Public Speaking is the number one fear in the world, coming first before DEATH. I think she deserves a little slack. She's human. She made a mistake, that was REALLY understandable in the circumstances. Can you really honestly say you wouldn't be a little nervous on national television, all alone on the stage answering a question in front of millions of people judging you, on and off the panel?

Um, furthermore I really dont think she redeemed the children in africa, whatever, i mean Iraq, oh america needs maps and stuff, like okay.

No I don't think she redeemed herself any, she might not be an airhead but she isn't helping dispell any exsisting stereotypes of blonde southern beauty queens. I understand nerves not really hearing the question but where did that answer come from?

my fave part of her answer was when she said something along the lines of "cos they don't have a map".priorities people ! first let's get all Americans maps and then we can deal with the rest later!! :oy: :oy:... and it's great and all that she's been given the answer a couple of days later, but I don't know how redeeming it is ... I mean if you wrote an exam and got an answer wrong , then read up on what the actual answer was ... good for you and everything but that won't change the results of the exam. ... hopefully this girl 15 minutes is over soon and she's not the new Tara whatshername(the former miss usa)

Sadly it was an easy question to begin with... obviously having common sense is not a requirement to be a pageant girl.

I feel sorry for her. But she is obviously daft as a brush. The fact that she had to have a second go only reinforces that.

And what is with how she pronounces ALL her words anyway?

I don't think she will ever redeem herself for that one.
