Australia's bet Olivia Wells sizzles in Moscow as the 19-year-old stunner poses for a swimsuit photoshoot with other contestants. The 62nd edition of this year's Miss Universe Pageant welcomes 89 delegates from all over the world all competing for the crown on Nov. 9 Coronation Night.
The heat is definitely on, amidst the cold winter in Russia Olivia is looking as hot as ever as for her first swimsuit photoshoot although it's not yet the final judging. The pageant's score will be based on three major rounds: best bikini body, the evening gown round and the final interview.
The owl obsessed beauty queen is studying to become a paediatric surgeon and for now she is putting it on the side as she dons a bikini for the world's most prestigious pageant. In an interview in the Aug. issue of The Weekly, the medical student answers the question why she joined the beauty contest.
"People have this perception that all beauty queens are airheads and medical students are nerds who sit in their rooms and study all day. But the two are not mutually exclusive," she says.
"I like to study, but I also like to dress up. I think, in life, rounding is the most important thing."
Wells is very active with her charity works as she volunteers to tutor school-age refugees in suburban Melbourne with or without the crown. She also worked in Tongan hospitals and aims to help more underprivileged patients as she practice medicine in developing countries.
She may be a nerd but Olivia Wells is undeniably hot as she rocks a bikini and an evening gown while proving that pageants are not the exclusive realm of the professionally vapid. Wells aims that her commitment to charity work and her studies will qualify her to bag the prestigious beauty title and not to separate her from her competitors.
"I want to do everyone proud," she says in The Weekly interview.
"I want to do myself proud; I want to do Australia proud. I'm certainly not going into this competition without the idea of wanting to win it."
