Viral Video: Grace Under Pressure

The setup: Give Miss USA Rachel Smith some credit for mucho composure during the Miss Universe pageant. After slipping and falling on her butt during the evening gown competition, she got right back up, turned on a smile and raised a seductive eyebrow as she struck a pose. She kept her cool during the interview portion, too—even when the crowd in Mexico City jeered her. (Pageant co-owner Donald Trump surmised they were booing the United States, not her.). She finished the interview with a wave, saying, “Buenas noches, Mexico. Muchas gracias,” a move that won over some of the audience. That’s grace under fire from a gal who was on her rear moments before.
The source: The video clip came from NBC’s May 28 broadcast of the Miss Universe pageant.
The hits: The video hit YouTube on May 28 and amassed more than 860,000 views by May 31.
