Olivia Wells, 19 and representing Melbourne, was crowned Miss Universe Australia 2013. The student of Medicine defeated 29 other gorgeous national finalists from all over the continent, but none moreso glaring than a disappointed 1st Runner-Up (and strong favorite) Tegan Martin who also ended up in the same spot two years ago to Scherri-Lee Biggs.
The tall brunette from Black Rock will now represent her country in Moscow’s Miss Universe 2013. For now, she is setting aside her university studies, but will still return to her plans of becoming a full-pledged Pediatric Surgeon in the future to serve medical missions around the world as well as her motherland.
2nd Runner-Up honors went to Marsi Fernandez, with Kristy Coulcher and Mary Vitinaros (who placed 2nd to Renae Ayris in last year’s edition) coming in as 3rd and 4th Runners-Up respectively.
Good luck, Olivia! 🙂
