Telemundo who televised the Miss Universe pageant to many countries in Latin America has video of newly-crowned Zuleyka Rivera Mendoza fainting.

But this is our hope. Our hope is she was tired of all the people asking her all of the ridiculous questions until someone asked her what she wants to be after she's through with college, and said watch. And then "fainted".

That would be our Miss Universe.

Meanwhile, Miss Universe Losers Dissapoint, Shock their Home Countries:

Hindustan Times:

Miss India-Universe Neha Kapur disappointed her fans back in India when she failed to enter the top 10 at the Miss Universe 2006 pageant taking place in Los Angeles. Neha was a strong contender at the beauty pageant. She even made it to the semi-finals where top 20 women were selected by the jury. But after the swimsuit round, Miss India's magic failed to work, it seems.

Sydney Morning Herald:
Brisbane-born Erin McNaught, 24, failed to make the first cut at the contest and was not among the top 20 entrants, even though she had been the top tip of bookmakers heading into the competition among the 86 candidates. She entered the competition amid a media storm after topless photos of her were published in Australian magazine Zoo Weekly.
