Miss USA Olivia Jordan competed twice in Alpha pageants; Miss World 2013 and
Miss Universe 2015.

Did you know that when two American beauty queens competed twice in the major international beauty pageants, a Filipina always ended up victorious? 

Andrea Neu represented USA both in Miss International 2013 and Miss Earth 2014 in which the Philippines were proclaimed the winners. Bea Rose Santiago was crowned Miss International 2013 with Andrea Neu in the Top 15 Semi-Finalist. The following year, Andrea participated in the Miss Earth 2014 contest won by another Filipina beauty Jamie Herrell with Andrea nabbing the Miss Earth-Air 2014 title. 

The same can also be said with Olivia Jordan who competed both in Miss World and Miss Universe. Both editions have been won by the Philippines as well. Olivia was a Top 20 Semi-Finalist in Miss World 2013 where Megan Lynne Talde Young nudged the Philippines' first blue crown. Two years later, Olivia bannered the USA sash in the most eventful Miss Universe 2015 pageant where she ended a Second Runner-Up to the Philippines' bet Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

Miss USA Andrea Neu represented her country for two times in a row in the Alpha pageants - Miss International 2013 and Miss Earth 2014. 

Olivia Jordan and Andrea Neu are the only American beauty queens to date (along with Brucene Smith) who competed at two major international beauty pageants. It is also interesting to note that among the three, Olivia Jordan is the first woman to represent the United States at two of the world's largest and oldest international beauty pageants: Miss World and Miss Universe. 

So are these American beauties, the Philippines' lucky charm for the past two years in pageantry? Me thinks, they are! Along with our delegates' hardwork and determination as well as the Filipinos' passionate love and support to our beloved beauty queens. 

Philippines won all four crowns in the most prestigious beauty pageants in the world
in just a span of 2 years with a back-t0-back victory in Miss Earth 2015. God bless the

 Philippines! Mabuhay!
