America really has a problem with balance. Not the country as a whole, just the women we send to worldwide beauty pageants. Last year’s Miss USA went crashing to the ground during the evening gown portion of the Miss Universe competition. This year? Miss USA went crashing to the ground during the evening gown portion of the Miss Universe competition. Awesome. Crystle Stewart, 26, tripped on the hem of her very beautiful – and very long – gown, and next thing you knew the motivational speaker was ass to floor.
No one said the route to being crowned the most beautiful girl in the Universe would be easy. And beauty queen Crystle Stewart was no doubt hoping to make an entrance as she strutted her stuff at the final of the Miss Universe event. But maybe not quite the one she did make, as the 5ft 10in beauty tripped on the train of her dazzling evening gown during the competition and ended up in a heap on the floor.
The reigning Miss USA took a tumble in front of a worldwide audience of 1billion people and shattered her hopes of winning Miss Universe 2008. Stunning Crystle ended up in an ungainly heap after slipping as she emerged on stage for the evening gown section of the contest in Vietnam. The stunned beauty queen briefly sat on the floor before regaining her composure and getting up to applause from the audience.
Before the show Stewart, 26, a motivational speaker and former track and field star said she felt very confident going into the show and couldn’t imagine experiencing the same calamity as her predecessor.

Of course the video is all over YouTube… which is kinda sad… and also means it’s going to be all over this article, too. It must really suck to have your drams go down so quickly in front of so many people, and have to act like you’re cool with it. Here’s Crystle Stewart outside the Waverly Inn in the West Village on June 3rd. Images thanks to WENN.
