Miss Universe 2008 Is Miss Venezuela

I've watched last night the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant. Miss Venezuela won the most coveted title and I think she really deserves it. She is beautiful and I like her answer in the question and answer portion.

Miss Venezuela, Dayana Mendoza, 22, was once kidnapped in her homeland and says the experience taught her to remain poised under pressure.

Tension got under the skin of Crystle Stewart of Texas, the second Miss USA in a row to fall down during the Miss Universe pageant.

She tripped on the train of her bejeweled evening gown as she made her entrance. Watch Stewart fall, jump back up

During the 2007 Miss Universe contest in Mexico City, Miss USA Rachel Smith also tumbled during the evening gown competition and became an unintended star on You Tube, where the video was shown over and over again.

Like Smith, Stewart quickly stood up after her fall and continued on as if nothing had happened.

Stewart, 26, is a motivational speaker and former track and field star who is working on a book called "Waiting to Win." The Houston native plans to open a character-development school for young children and has worked with autism victims in the Texas schools.

The final five contestants included four from Latin America: Miss Mexico, Miss Dominican Republic, Miss Colombia and Miss Venezuela. Rounding out the final five was Miss Russia.

Miss Colombia finished second behind Mendoza.
