Miss Universe

Olivia Culpo won the 2012 Miss Universe beauty pageant. She qualified to the final 16 and won all the preliminary rounds including swimsuit, evening wear, and interview competitions.

In the contest, she was asked if she had ever done something she regretted. To which she answered, "I'd like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you'll learn from it. That's just life. But something I've done I've regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older."

Her 17-year-old Gus was present at the ceremony and cheered for her from the front row.
