last night. A small incident maybe played a role in her
placement among the runner-up contenders. Rachel Smith slipped
on the stage and fell during the evening gown competition. Miss

odds to win the 2007 Miss Universe were against Miss USA
entering the competition, with some bookmakers offering as high
as 100/1 for Rachel to win the beauty contest.
A mean-spirited crowd in Mexico City booed the
young beauty after Rachel made it to the top 5 and Miss Mexico
did not. Rachel Smith was booed again when it came time to
answer questions by the judges in the final round interview.
Miss USA, however, kept her composure and paid no attention to
