A clip of Miss USA tripping over during the Miss Universe pageant has become a hit on internet video sharing site YouTube.
The video clip, which shows Miss USA Rachel Smith slipping during the evening gown competition at yesterday's Miss Universe pageant in Mexico City, is one of the week's most popular videos. Smith recovers well from the trip, continuing to smile and wave at the crowd after picking herself up.
The video is one of YouTube's most popular entertainment videos. By 2 p.m. on Wednesday it had had almost 300,000 hits. The Miss Universe contest was won by Miss Japan Riyo Mori, a 20-year-old dancer. Smith, who was also booed by the Mexican audience during the interview stage of the competition, came fourth.
