Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo says she keeps her crown under lock and key at her house.
Culpo was crowned Miss Universe in 2012 and is hosting the 71st pageant with Jeannie Mai Jenkins.
Despite keeping the crown in a locked box, Culpo said she's caught her sisters with it in the past.
Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo says she still keeps her crown under lock and key over a decade since she won the pageant.
"My crown has its own special clear box that I keep in my closet, locked," Culpo, 30, said. "Although I have caught my sisters walking around with it in my house before — so maybe I need to hide the key."
The model has two sisters: Aurora Culpo, 33, and Sophia Culpo, 26. In 2022, the trio starred in a TLC reality show called "The Culpo Sisters" that followed their lives, loves, and careers in Los Angeles, according to IMDB.
She and Aurora previously made headlines in January 2022 when Culpo was told she was unable to board an American Airlines flight until she changed her outfit. As Insider previously reported, Aurora told her followers on Instagram that Olivia was called to the American Airlines desk and told to "put on a blouse" over her athleisure set as they prepared to board a flight to Cabo, Mexico.
According to NPR, Culpo was a 20-year-old sophomore at Boston University when she was crowned Miss Universe, beating out 88 other international participants for the title. She went on to host the 2020 pageant.
On Friday, Culpo shared several behind-the-scenes photos and videos from the rehearsal day for Miss Universe via her Instagram stories.
In one clip, she called Jenkins her "work wife" as the pair practiced their lines at a table read. In another, Culpo panned across the stage to show several contestants and wrote "someone's life is about to change forever."
