Career as an American Television Personality

Olivia represented the USA at the 'Miss Universe 2012 Pageant' that was held on December 19, 2012, in Nevada. There she was chosen as 'Miss Universe 2012' turning into the first victor from the USA to acquire the crown since Brook Lee in 1997. Olivia also turned into the first Rhode Islander to win the 'Miss Universe' title and succeeded active titleholder Leila Lopes from Angola.

Boyfriend & Dating

In 2014, Nick Jonas was making waves as a performance artist and performing at the Miss Universe exhibition. While the main 10 finalists were being declared Nick sang his hits 'Chains', 'Teacher' and 'Jealous'. In the final melody, Jonas ventured off the stage and advanced toward his then sweetheart, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. He stooped before Culpo, who was sitting in the primary column, and grasped her hand while as he sang.

Jonas told the Sun at the time that her stunned expression was all because of what she *thought* was occurring, ‘I went down and sang to her and I go on a knee and approached her. Her face was in full panic, she thought I was going to propose on national TV in front of one billion people.’

It was a bittersweet moment because in June 2015, Nick declared that they had broken their sweet relationship because of private reasons. Olivia will not have to suffer for long because she has a huge line of bachelors waiting for her.
