Olivia Culpo nearly faints on Emmys red carpet

Beauty queen Olivia Culpo almost passed out in the scorching heat on the Emmy Awards red carpet on Sunday (20Sep15), and had to be escorted away in a wheelchair.

Nick Jonas' ex-girlfriend was serving as a co-host for E! News' pre-Emmys red carpet show in downtown Los Angeles, where temperatures reached nearly 100 degrees (37.7 Celsius).


During the live broadcast, the cameras cut to a shot of Culpo and her co-hosts, as the former Miss USA collapsed.


Medics came to the rescue, and Culpo took to Twitter.com to post a photo of herself being taken away in a wheelchair.


She wrote the caption, "When u almost pass out on LIVE TV!", adding, "OMG it is SO HOT out here. Literally just almost passed out."
