The South Carolina beauty queen who suffered a geographic meltdown over "U.S. Americans" during last month's Miss Teen USA pageant can now have the last laugh, with the chance to make up to $25,000 a day as a model for Donald Trump.
Lauren Caitlin Upton, 18, of Lexington, S.C., reportedly flew to New York City today to begin employment for Trump Model Management.
"My lifelong dream has been to travel the world and pursue my modeling career," Upton told WIS-TV. "Randomly, [my mistake] has offered me that opportunity."
The station says she'll live in the Trump Apartments in Manhattan, with potential assignments in faraway places "such as" Milan, Japan and Australia. There was no mention of "the Iraq" or South Africa, two countries Upton dwelt upon in a rambling answer at the pageant.
As WND was the first to report, Upton was attempting to answer a final question during the Miss Teen USA pageant in Pasadena, Calif., Aug. 24.

She has to find her way to the office first. Let me know how that works out.
So Donald, was she good for you?
I would hire her.
Cheaper than marriage/divorce.
Time will get the last laugh...
She’ll get old soon and still have the same dysfuncional brain cells.
Attractive yes, but does she know where New York is?
Wife number Four.
Ivana was the only Czech the Donald ever bounced :)
She needs one of those “if only these were brains” t-shirts.
Worth every penny.
Who cares where the U.S.A. is on a map ? If it is not in the center you need a new map .
Talk about a loaded question. Any knowledgeable contestant who answered the question honestly would be immediately eliminated.
$25,000 a day equals 9 million, 125 thousand dollars a year. That would buy a lot of maps.
With plastic surgery and care, she can live off her looks well into her 40s.
She’ll marry someone rich, probably a couple of times.
LOL!!! Funniest thing I have seen in a long time!!!!
Wish I could take credit. Alas, it was the cheezburger.
Sorta like the visit to the Playboy Mansion by Hugh Hefner bunnies, to seal the deal with Hef?
True. But you forgot to account for the “leap year” effect.
AP - ...We found the beauty queen traveling in Wyoming, and asked her about her new career. She replied, “I’m sorry, I don’t have time to talk, I’ve got to get to New York by tomorrow.”
With that, she screeched out of the interstate rest stop, and proceeded west at great speed.
That’s $25,000/day when she actually models, not 365 x $25,000. But still good money for little work.
