Alexandria Nichole Mills (born in Louisville, Kentucky on February 26, 1992) is a beauty pageant titleholder from the United States who was crowned Miss World 2010[2] on October 30, 2010 in Sanya, China.[3] Mills is the third woman from the USA to win Miss World, and the first since Gina Tolleson in 1990 and the 60th Miss World in the history of the pageant.[4]

Early life[edit]

Mills, a resident of Shepherdsville, Kentucky, had an interest in modeling at least as early as the eighth grade; following Mills' victory in Miss World 2010, a counselor at her middle school recalled that she had a modeling portfolio even then. The counselor also recalled her as being "very outgoing and very confident", and that Mills had demonstrated fearlessness by volunteering to sing "God Bless America" over the school intercom.[5]

Prior to participating in Miss World, 18-year-old Mills was homeschooled for high school,[5] graduating shortly before the competition, and wanted to become a teacher.[6][7] According to her mother, she also has an interest in landscape photography.[5] A vegetarian,[8] Mills is also a fashion model and is listed with Elite Models agency.[1][9]

Miss World 2010[edit]

Mills was appointed as Miss World United States 2010 by Elite Models to represent her country at the 2010 Miss World pageant held in Sanya, China. She placed first runner-up during the Miss World Beach Beauty fast track event held on October 19[10] and second-runner-up in Miss World Top Model held on October 23,[11] becoming the eventual winner of Miss World 2010 on October 30, beating early bookie's favorite Mariann Birkedal of Norway who finished in the top seven.[9][12]

During her reign of Miss World, Mills traveled to Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Kenya, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Trinidad & Tobago, the United Kingdom and the United States.
