Two days later her "do-over" answer was:

"Personally, my friends and I, we know exactly where the United States is on a map. I don't know anyone else who doesn't. If the statistics are correct, I believe there should be more emphasis on geography in our education so people will learn how to read maps better."

She was right the first time. That do-over sucked! You know she didn't even come up with that and that's the best they could do after more than 48-hours practice!

Caitlin said she was shocked at the question and that's why she froze up. "Everything did come at me at once. And I made a mistake - everybody makes a mistake - I'm human. Right when the question was asked of me, I was in shock!"

What they should've done is asked her to find the U.S. on a world map. The shock alone would've sent her into cardiac arrest.
