Claudia Jordan


Claudia Jordan has never been able to sit around in one place too long. After a nomadic childhood, she and her parents finally settled down in East Providence, Rhode Island, where she became Miss Teen Rhode Island and later competed in Miss Teen USA. As an adult, she won Miss Rhode Island USA and competed in the Miss USA pageant. It was only the third time in 46 years that anyone representing Rhode Island made the top ten. East Providence even named May 16th "Claudia Jordan Day." Daughter of an Italian immigrant, she is fluent in Italian.

After moving to Los Angeles with only $500 to her name, she became a model on “The Price is Right.” She then went on to co-host a TV show with Carmen Electra called "Livin' Large" and worked as a correspondent for "The Best Damn Sports Show" as well as "" Jordan has also been a newspaper reporter on the East Coast and was one of the few female reporters in Washington, D.C. to cover the Million Man March. She even co-hosted a week-long radio show at the Super Bowl in Jacksonville. She's appeared in numerous magazines: Best Body (cover), Fitness RX, Maxim, Stuff, Sports Illustrated, Spanish People, King, Smooth, FHM, Woman's World, J'Adore (cover) and many more. Her success has enabled her to buy two homes and a condo and travel to Italy seven times! She has appeared on Jay Leno, Dr. Phil, Extra, Access Hollywood, The TV Guide Channel, as well as being featured on E! Entertainment’s special about the 12 sexiest jobs in Hollywood. She also hosts a sports show called "Ballers” and is currently co-hosting a weekly radio show with Oscar winner Jamie Foxx on Sirius Radio (channel 106) called "The Foxxhole."

Jordan is working on shopping around a financial show that she created and hopes to host. She has landed several magazine covers as well as guest hosted the weekend show for Extra. She was also fortunate enough to judge the Miss Universe pageant in 2006. Jordan hosted two seasons of "The Modern Girls Guide to Life" on the Style network and has been featured in two "E! True Hollywood Stories." She plans to continue working in sports, produce a show, become a real estate mogul, do stand-up comedy and buy her mom a big house – since she left her country and sacrificed so much for Claudia and her little brother. Jordan is currently single and looking for her Prince Charming. Oh yeah, and occasionally, she loves to get more than five hours of sleep!
