Nicole Michele Johnson (born July 12, 1985) is a former beauty queen from Westlake Village, California who was crowned Miss California USA 2010. She was first runner-up in 2007.

Early life[edit]

When Johnson was 17, she read an advertisement in The Acorn for Miss California USA.[1] Johnson, a Moorpark College student at the time, wanted to transfer to the University of Southern California and thought the scholarship would help pay her education.[1] Out of 304 contestants Johnson took first runner-up. She has since competed in seven pagents.

In 2007, Johnson graduated with honors from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication.[2] During her time at USC she focused on sports entertainment.

Miss USA 2010[edit]

Nicole placed in the top 10 at the Miss USA 2010 pageant and continued California's sixth consecutive placement.[1][2][3][4] She was sponsored by INTA Gems and Diamonds, Agua Caliente and Tony Bowls.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Her parents are Rick and Annette Johnson (divorced) and she has a younger brother, Ricky. Johnson formerly worked for Mercedes Benz and before her departure prior to the Miss USA pageant was promoted to Finance Assistant at the dealership.[6]

Johnson became engaged to 18-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps on February 21, 2015.[7]
