Miss Hawaii's Answer to the Final Question

Before it could be determined who the winner and runner-ups were going to be, the Final 5 had to answer a final question. The question was "Why are you proud to be an American?". Miss Hawaii World 1992, Nadine Tanega, gained notoriety after her answer to the final question which was:[1]

I am especially proud to be a first generation American and a resident of Hawaii our youngest state. Our nation's pride lies deep within the heart's of its people. America has faith in liberty and justice and we all have faith and believe in ourselves. The United States freedom and opportunity is one of the greatest. We are truly the land of the great. From the rocky shores of Hawaii, to the beautiful sandy beaches of Hawaii, America is our home.

After answering the question the host, Alan Thicke, then makes fun of her by saying:

It's a wonderfully versatile state you have there.

Tanega's answer to the question also had gained even more notoriety after popular YouTuber PewDiePie, featured a clip of her answer in his YouTube video "TRY NOT TO CRINGE CHALLENGE 2 (w/ MARZIA)". In which him and his wife Marzia react to her answer to the question.[2]
