Miss Teen Babbler -- But I CAN Speak!

8/28/2007 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She's the laughingstock of the Internet and beyond, after her babbling, dippy answer to a question at the "Miss Teen USA" pageant this past weekend, but Lauren Caitlin Upton got her chance at redemption today, courtesy of the "Today" show.


The 18-year-old South Carolina bumbling beauty got the chance at a redo, with a slightly less cubist answer, telling Matt Lauer and Ann Curry that she intended to study "special effects" in school (like how to make Blondish sound like English on live TV?) and even explained what a lunar eclipse was. Brilliant!

If you're one of the four people on the net who haven't seen Caitlin's shining moment, check it, uhmmmm, out.

This was so staged by NBC. They own the Teen USA Awards so they had to give this ditz a break. Well we know she can read a prompter regarding the eclipse. This chick is a complete moron.

She's adorable and she seems to have a level head on her shoulders. People need to cut the poor girl a break, everyone makes mistakes, unfortunately hers was on national TV.

When I saw what she said at the pagent over the weekend I laughed along with everyone else, but you know what? Good for her! Good for her for going on live TV again and redeeming herself. We have all said something stupid that we later regret, so give her a break.

So what? She got nervous under pressure. The other girls had the easiest questions ever and she got stuck with one where she couldn't think fast enough. Give her a break. I highly doubt shes 'stupid'.

She is a sweet kid...I wonder how many of us would make mistakes if we were in the same situation.
