Some few interesting questions that popped out at the conclusion of Miss Universe 2012 pageant.
1.) Is Olivia Culpo the first American woman to be crowned Miss Universe in Las Vegas?
Yes, this is true. Las Vegas hosted the pageant four times. In 1991, Mexico won while in 1996 it was Venezuela. Mexico again won in 2010.
2.) Since no Italian had won Miss Universe, is Olivia the first ever Miss Universe with Italian ancestry?
No. Miss Universe 1987 Cecilia Bolocco can trace her lineage on her father side back to Italy.
3.) Is this the first time that USA and Philippines are the last two remaining girls?
No. In 1973, Miss Philippines Margarita Moran won over Miss USA Amanda Jones.
4.) Is Olivia the shortest ever Miss Universe?
No. She beat Miss Universe 1965 Apasra Hongsakula by about half an inch.
5.) Will Olivia be the shortest reigning Miss Universe considering that Leila is the longest?
That remains to be seen. Discounting dethronements, Zuleyka Rivera just reign by over 10 months. Unless of course the world will end on December 21...
