Transcription: Miss South Carolina Teen USA video

Miss Teen South CarolinaWhat happens when you ask a South Carolina teen how to improve America’s knowledge of geography? You get a lesson you didn’t expect. And a couple of laughs. Lauren Caitlin Upton gave an answer that rang around the world. Chalk it up to stage fright. Or being blonde. Or from South Carolina. You decide.

Aimee Teegarden: Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?

Lauren Caitlin Upton: I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and, uh, I believe that our education, like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., er should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so that we ill be able to build up our future for our children.

Mario Lopez: Thank you very much, South Carolina.
