Olivia Culpo had a close call at the 2015 Emmy Awards on Sunday. The 23-year-old beauty queen nearly passed out at the awards show as fellow attendees fanned themselves and commented on the California heat.

Culpo caught up with E! network’s red carpet crew ahead of the 67th annual ceremony, but started to struggle as she spoke to Giuliana Rancic and Ross Mathews. The Miss USA winner was seen kneeling down on the carpet, but Rancic soon told viewers, “We want everyone to know, Olivia Culpo is fine.”

Culpo acknowledged the scare on Twitter, assuring her followers that she was doing okay.



Culpo also retweeted a message that read, “Olivia is about to pass out. Someone catch her,” and sent love to Mathews after he wrote, “OMG, I totally would’ve caught you! Glad you’re okay!!!”
