Today we are catching up with Chloe Maddison of Queensland, one of the 27 talented and inspiring women from all walks of life who are hoping to be crowned Miss Universe Australia 2022.

So Chloe, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Chloe; I’m Australian, Slovakian and Australian born in Sydney and now calling Brisbane Home; I am currently studying for a degree in marketing and running my own small business.
My small business is named after my favourite beverage – Lime & Soda Hire, and it focuses on hiring designer pieces out at a fraction of the purchase price.

We all have motivations, mine usually around good coffee, but what was your key motivation for entering Miss Universe Australia?

In all honesty, I wanted to represent my country, and the Olympics were never an option for me because of how clumsy I can be.  Miss Universe Australia gives me the opportunity to represent my country and celebrate my own quirky attributes.

As part of the program, you recently spent time in our hometown of the Gold Coast with the Village Roadshow team; what was the experience like?

Well, well, well, although I was born in Sydney, I am a Queenslander now, and I’ve always loved Village Roadshow.   When I was in middle school, my parent would treat me to an ultimate pass for Christmas, and every school holiday, my friends and I would take the train to Movie World and wet and Wild depending on the season.

What would you say was the highlight of your trip?

The opportunities were INCREDIBLE, but nothing beats the friendships I’ve made. I’d always hoped to have a sister, and as cliche, as it sounds, I now have over 28 sisters.

With everyone bringing their own unique and individual flair to the program, what is something that sets you apart from the other contestants?

I’m VERY quirky, and I’m never afraid to say it how it is, no matter how crazy it may sound. I’m generally known as the blunt but crazy friend essentially; I’ve grown up with a very theatrical background which enhances my personality in many unique ways.

Your next question comes from our current Miss Universe Australia, Daria Varlamova; in your opinion, what are the most essential qualities that a Miss Universe Australia embodies?

In my opinion, MUA encapsulates an honest and approachable woman who is honest with themselves and others and is never afraid to stand up for what is right no matter the consequences.

Now travel is back on the cards; where is your favourite place to travel to?

I’m tossing up between Vienna, Austria and Bratislava in Slovakia…

What is something people may find interesting about you?

I tend to speak in a British accent at random moments, and I’m not afraid to whip out my dance moves, including the helicopter and the worm.

Tell us something you’re passionate about and why?

I’m extremely passionate about Acting and the creative industry that I have been involved with for many years, from my time being a part of the Queensland Theatre Company Youth Ensemble to studying for an International Baccalaureate in film and theatre on top of my high school education.
