Photos: It's So Hot On The Emmys Red Carpet, Olivia Culpo Nearly Fainted

It was such a scorcher today on the Emmys red carpet that Olivia Culpo (aka Miss USA 2012) nearly fainted on the red carpet, and Mario Lopez soaked through his shirt like a wet t-shirt contest.

Over at the Microsoft Theater in downtown L.A., the red carpet reached 100 degrees, and people weren't doing so well. When Culpo, who you also may know as Nick Jonas' ex, was doing pre-Emmys coverage with E!'s Giuliana Rancic, she nearly passed out and ended up in a wheelchair. Culpo told TMZ, "OMG it is SO HOT out here. Literally just almost passed out."

Culpo's fine though! Rancic reassured viewers after the commercial break and said, "We want everyone to know, Olivia Culpo is fine."
