The huge responsibility of giving the world its next Miss Universe was at the hands of Diego Boneta, Kerri Walsh, Scott Disick, Nigel Barker, Brad Goreski, Cluadia Jordan, Pablo Sandoval, Lisa Venderpupm & Jiggy, Chef Masaharu Morimoto and Ximena Navarette.

89 drop-dead gorgeous women had lined to own the crown that is currently adorned by Angola’s Leila Lopes.

During the Q&A, Olivia was asked by Miss Universe 2010 title holder Ximena Navarrete, “what is something you have done that you would never do again?”

To which the beauty queen answered, “Every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you’ll learn from it.”

The Rhode Island native had been a Donald Trump favorite for which she received a lot of flack.
