POOR Miss South Carolina. It's bad enough to give a confused answer on national television to the question posed to her during the Miss Teen USA 2007 beauty pageant. Now she's all the rage on YouTube. In fact, this particular clip -- just one of many showing her infamous answer or posted in response to videos of her -- has been viewed over five million times just three days after it was posted. Miss South Carolina Teen USA Lauren Caitlin Upton was asked to share her opinion on why apparently a fifth of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Good luck figuring out what her answer means heh :) To be fair, though, I saw her on NBC's "Today" show where she was given the chance to explain what happened. She said she was so nervous that she only heard a few of the words in the actual question and her mind went blank when she started answering. I mean, we all screw up at one time or another -- most of us, however, are fortunate enough not to do it on national television and have it documented for the whole world to see on YouTube. Still, it's a funny clip, and Miss South Carolina said she can laugh about it as well now. Funny thing, she actually overcame that gaffe to become one of the five finalists and eventually became third runner-up. Miss Colorado Hilary Carol Cruz was crowned Miss Teen USA 2007. Too bad Caitlin can't go back in time and give the new answer she came up with during the "Today" segment. Photo courtesy of Associated Press.

DID you like the fourth "Die Hard" movie? Funny enough, I found it OK -- or at least it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Of course, it also helps that I like Maggie Q, and her character kicked ass -- literally. Here's a YouTube clip of her character Mai Linh doing just that to John McClane. Here are photos courtesy of Agence France-Presse. And here are some pics from her official site.
I'VE always loved Michelle Pfeiffer, and it's great that she finally has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Here's a pic of her kneeling down to touch her star during the unveiling ceremony on August 6. And here are more pics courtesy of Agence France-Presse. Oh, and don't forget to catch her in the movie "Hairspray."

I WAS in South Korea recently to cover Ragnarok World Championship 2007, which also coincided with Gravity Festival 2007. It was my first time in South Korea, and I had a great time there. Not just because I got to visit another country, cover the tournament, enjoy Korean food, and meet new friends, but also, yup, ogle booth babes heh :) Here are some of the beautiful babes at the Gravity Festival.
