Miss Universe Australia 2013 Olivia Wells

OHMYGOSSIP — Olivia Wells (born in 1994) is an Australian university student and model who was crowned Miss Universe Australia 2013 and will represent Australia at the Miss Universe 2013 in Moscow, Russia on 9 November. She is the first woman to be crowned Miss Universe Australia from the state of Victoria.

Olivia Wells grew up in the Bayside suburb of Black Rock with her family. At primary and high school she was considered a ‘nerd’ as she was both an intelligent and diligent student. She is the elder of two siblings.

Olivia completed high school in 2012 and is currently a first year medical student at Monash University in Melbourne. After winning Miss Universe Australia 2013 she was forced to take a one year intermission from her studies but plans on returning next year.

Olivia Wells was representing Melbourne, and she was crowned Miss Universe Australia 2013. The student of Medicine defeated 29 other national finalists from all over the continent. Wells was an underdog in the lead up to the national pageant with betting odds at 51:1 for her taking the title.

Olivia is well known for her philanthropic work both in her hometown of Melbourne and overseas. She currently tutors students from refugee and migrant backgrounds through Embrace Education in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. She recently returned from a volunteer trip to Tonga where she and a small group of Monash University medical students implemented a diabetes screening program.

Miss Universe 2013 will be the 62nd Miss Universe pageant. It will be held on November 9, 2013 at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe 2012 from the USA will crown her successor at the end of the event. This will be the first time Russia will host. The pageant will be televised on NBC and Telemundo.

Miss Universe is an annual international beauty contest run by the Miss Universe Organization. The pageant is the most publicized beauty contest in the world with 600 million viewers. The contest was founded in 1952 by California clothing company Pacific Mills. The pageant became part of Kayser-Roth and then Gulf and Western Industries, before being acquired by Donald Trump in 1996. In 1998, Miss Universe changed its name from Miss Universe, Inc. to Miss Universe Organization and the headquarters moved from Long Beach California, to New York City that year. Donald Trump brought in a new team of professionals to the contest headed by its new CEO, Molly Miles, and president Maureen Reidy. The contest would use the slogan “Redefined for Today” for promotion of the pageants.
