'Miss Universe 2012' Pageant: Miss Venezuela Gives Nonsensical Answer (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It was a good night for American pride as Miss USA took home the title of "Miss Universe 2012." Olivia Culpa's win marked the first time since 1997 that the United States took home top honors in the pageant, broadcast on NBC. But even that momentous moment won't go down as the most memorable of the night.

That honor may well go to the bizarre answer Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, gave to the question asking what new law she would want to create.

Her answer: "We should have a straight way to go in our similar or in our lives or as is this ... I am a surfer and I think the best way I can take is the wave that I wait for it."

It seems quite clear that something got lost in translation. The strange answer didn't hurt her too much, though. Miss Venezuela came in third on the night. Miss Philippines, Janine Tugonon, came in second.
