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.

She has to find her way to the office first. Let me know how that works out.

She’ll get old soon and still have the same dysfuncional brain cells.

Attractive yes, but does she know where New York is?

Sure she will. But if she has the proper financial adviser she will also have a few million bucks.

Who cares where the U.S.A. is on a map ? If it is not in the center you need a new map .

When asked about the reason why some Americans could not locate the U.S. on a world map, Upton said:....

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.

True. But you forgot to account for the “leap year” effect.

LOL!

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.
