Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo Admits to Drinking Underage

Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo tells TMZ … she did engage in underage drinking during her freshman year in college (like EVERY college student) … but the 20-year-old insists her days of illegal boozing are long behind her. Just days after Culpo emerged victorious at the Miss Universe competition last month, photos of the beauty queen taking shots of hard liquor surfaced on the web — a problem since she’s not exactly 21.

Culpo was quoted as saying, “Like many college students I was curious and did experiment with alcohol in college.” Normally we wouldn’t really care about anything like this. I mean can you blame Culpo at all here? She was doing was 99.9% of college kids do.

However, it’s not wise to mess with anything “Miss Universe” in terms of your future and branding. I have no idea what fine print there is but something tells me this just might have an issue. Then again, give me a break, she’s really hot.
