Boston University sophomore Olivia Culpo, of Cranston, R.I., was crowned Miss Universe Wednesday night during the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

It is the first time an American has won the Miss Universe title since Brook Lee won in 1997.

Yesterday, Culpo chatted with about everything from the pageant to her favorite foods to her (not-so-secret) crush.

Here is some of what we've learned.

How she felt standing on stage Wednesday night: "I was exhausted!"

Her sugary weakness: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.


And who is the single beauty queen crushing on these days? None other than "Rock of Ages" star Diego Boneta, who was also a judge for the Miss Universe Pageant (she tripped in front of him --- oops!)
