Olivia Jordan is Miss World United States 2013 and Miss USA 2015. She will represent the United States at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant.
Olivia was born September 28, 1988 in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she spent most of her youth. She attended Bishop Kelley High School where she was active on campus, delegating her time away from the books to Student Council, the tennis team, and her position as varsity cheer captain. After high school graduation, she decided to venture beyond her home in middle America. At Boston University, Olivia majored in Health Science and worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer at BU's FITREC facility. Her go-getter personality kept her involved on campus, pioneering a self-defense workshop that would become a continued tradition in her sorority, Alpha Phi. Upon graduating, Olivia moved to Los Angeles to pursue her lifelong passion for acting and modeling. She has been featured on screen, but has yet to have her "big break." She epitomizes the term, "student of life." Her unique and unfaltering optimism and relentless determination sets her apart. A dogged dreamer with a level head held high on her shoulders-a lover of love, life, and pugs-you will be seeing more of her as she continues to make her mark in the acting world.
She is 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in). Her measurements: breast - 82 cm, waist - 66 cm, hips - 89 cm.

Hillevi Rombin (September 14, 1933, Uppsala, Sweden – June 19, 1996) was Miss Sweden and Miss Universe in 1955.
She grew up in Uppsala, Uppland and was the Swedish national decathlon champion before she competed in the pageant. A remarkable athlete, Rombin excelled in gymnastics, track & field, and downhill snow skiing. After winning the pageant, she left Sweden for Hollywood to fulfill her acting contract with Universal Pictures, part of the prize package as Miss Universe. She studied acting along with John Gavin, Clint Eastwood, and Barbara Eden, among the other contract actors. Universal put her in a couple films, with just one or two lines, to give her some exposure and experience. She was credited for small speaking roles in two films. In The Benny Goodman Story (1955) she asks for an autograph and in Istanbul (1957) she appears as a flight attendant near the film's end.
During her year reign as Miss Universe, while traveling around the U.S., she met her future husband G. David Schine, whose family was in the hotel business and would later himself be in the film and music businesses. She discontinued her acting career in order to focus on married life, soon starting a large family with Schine. They had six children, and their marriage lasted almost 40 years until their deaths together in 1996.
