Miss Universe Olivia Culpo will give away her crown on Nov.9 at Crocus City Hall in Moscow. Culpo told in an interview to the The Providence Journal, "At this point I'm so exhausted, I'll say I need at least a month at home."
Olivia Culpo began her journey as Miss Universe as a freshman in Boston University. She was crowned Miss Universe 2012 in Las Vegas and since then, she has been at the helm of various global affairs. lhe has been the spokesperson for HIV/AIDS Awareness and has advocated for such organizations as Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, God's Love We Deliver and Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC).
Culpo also got into a controversy after she took part in the unauthorized photo shoot at the Taj Mahal in October 2013. According to India's heritage act, It is considered offensive to do a commercial photo shoot in Taj Mahal.
Regarding the photo shoot she told Guardianlive.com,"I didn't want to do the shoot. Honestly, I did at one point say out loud, 'Isn't this a little inappropriate?"
According to Indian laws, she will have to face two years in jail and a fine of $1,600 if found guilty.
In spite of the controversy, Culpo feels that she is thankful for the being crowned the Miss Universe. "I'm sure I'll be grateful for the experience in ways I can't even fathom at this point because I'm still living it."
After relinquishing her crown, Olivia Culpo plans to study and act in films.
Meanwhile, this year's Miss Universe 2013 pageant has 86 contestants participating from all over the world. Based on the preliminary pageant activities Miss Philippines Ariella Arida, Miss Myanmar Moe Set Wine, Miss USA Erin Brady and Miss Britain Amy Willerton are the frontrunners of the Miss Universe 2013 crown.
To see who will be crowned Miss Universe 2013, stay tuned.
