For those who saw the Miss Teen USA video, I have a follow up.
This is her take on what happened.
Her name is Lauren Caitlin Upton, of course it is. How come the contestants names are not something like Gertrude Prudence Fogbottom? I don't mean any disrespect to women named Gertrude or Prudence, it just seems that if you have the name Gertrude you're not going to be a Miss Anything USA.
Since 1983 14 Miss Teen USA winners have had names that end with the "EE" sound. For example, Tami, Mindy, Hilary, Keylee, and fan favorite Ashley.
I'm able to sleep better now.
