Let’s continue our countdown to the ten biggest pageant news for year 2015!

7 OLIVIA OF OKLAHOMA IS MISS USA 2015  Olivia Jordan, a 26 year old blonde beauty from Tulsa, Oklahoma was crowned Miss USA 2015  on July 12, 2015 and thus entered pageant history books as the first beauty delegate from the Sooner State to win the United State’s official preliminary for the Miss Universe Pageant.

The model and part-time actress is also the first and only Miss USA to have been chosen by a judging panel composed of Miss Universe and Miss USA titleholders.

Olivia also became the first person to represent the United States at the two largest and oldest international beauty pageants in the world, Miss Universe 2015 & Miss World 2013 where she placed 2nd RU and Top 20 Finalist, respectively.

Olivia is also affectionately nicknamed by Filipino pageant fans as Miss Philippines’ lucky charm. You see, both Megan Young & Pia Wurtzbach won their respective pageant assignments that had Olivia as a fellow candidate.  

6 PHILIPPINES WINS ITS FIRST MISS GLOBE CROWN! Miss Philippines Ann Lorraine Maniego Colis, one of my favorite girls in the 2015 Bb. Pilipinas Pageant, actually set the tone for the rest of the year as she was the first among the Bb Pilipinas 2015 Queens to be fielded for an international pageant assignment.

5 BEAUTY QUEEN’S CONFESSION: I’M A CHILD OF RAPE A collective gasp then momentary silence was the instantaneous reaction at the Indoor Stadium Huamark in Bangkok, Thailand when Miss Dominican Republic confessed that her father, who raped her mother and brought her to life, was the most influential person in her life. “If I could I would hug him and forgive him. That’s the only way I can live and spread a message of peace”.
 Miss Grand International 2015 and her runners up
The controversial and shocking revelation worked to Anea's favor for she was crowned the 2015 Miss Grand International   with Australia as runner-up.

Born and raised by her grandmother in Cranston, Rhode Island, the 6’ 2” tall Anea is a student at the Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island where she is aiming for a double degree in Legal Studies and Philosophy,
She earlier competed for Miss USA 2015 where she eventually placed as 2nd RU to Olivia Jordan.
