Caite Upton Contemplated Suicide After 2007 Miss Teen USA Pageant Question Flub

After her notorious 2007 Miss Teen USA flub on geography, Miss South Carolina Caite Upton contemplated suicide.
Her bumbling answer during the questioning portion of the pageant quickly went viral online, and Upton didn’t take it well. In case you don’t remember, watch it below.
It’s pretty painful:

Ouch. If it’s any consolation, we’re also confused about The Iraq.
In an interview with New York Magazine, the now 26-year-old bombshell stated, “‘I definitely went through a period where I was very, very depressed,’ she explained. ‘But I never let anybody see that stuff, except for people I could trust. I had some very dark moments where I thought about committing suicide.'”
She also revealed that she lost a ton of friends because of what happened and was teased incessantly by her peers.
She finished in fourth place that year, which is actually pretty great considering the mortification, and eventually came around. Since then, she’s moved to LA and appeared on The Amazing Race. She’s also starred in several commercials and is currently working as a real estate agent.
Listen, we all make mistakes! Especially when we’re nervous and standing in front of a few thousand gawking audience members.
