The Worst Beauty Pageant Answers Ever

Mark-Potts by Mark-Potts on Jun. 17, 2013

Every beauty pageant has a brief interview section where the contestant is asked a question based on current events. The answer is well-rehearsed, non-offensive, and doesn't really answer anything but gives off the idea the candidate knows what they are talking about. But sometimes we're blessed with pure magic, a contestant caught off-guard and lost, not knowing how to answer and trying her best to pull words from other memorized answers and form a new answer. And thankfully for us, it doesn't work out.

The following are some of our favorite bad pageant answers. We're going to be using the Miss South Carolina Caitlin Upton scale to judge these answers.

Five Uptons is the highest a contestant can earn. Can any of them achieve such a monumentally sad level of stupidity? Let's find out!

If we heard Miss Venezuela correctly, she wants to make sure prostitutes and surfers are protected by laws so they can live their lives freely. We're not going to say we disagree but we are going to say this was a terrible answer that made little sense (minus the prostitute part. That made total sense).


This isn't even a hard question. She could have literally said anything. She could have said, "We'd have more flowers" or "We'd outlaw comments about women being in kitchens" or "Men would have to take out the trash, YA HEAR ME!" and she would have been fine. Instead, she's acting like I do when asked to solve for "Y"in an algebra equation (and the answer is "Y" isn't a number, moron).
