As parents, Peter and his wife thought the idea of doing a beauty pageant was terrible

He put his daughter on the diet when Olivia was 10

While discussing their childhood and upbringing on the Emergency Contact podcast, Olivia and her sister Aurora Culpo recalled their childhood memories where Olivia confessed how she saw herself compared to her sister. 

According to her, she felt she was really ugly with a different look and saw her sister as a Barbie doll and herself as an ugly duckling. 

She was overweight and had to look herself into the mirror and say, "Ok, you are different because she felt she was different. 

The sisters were revealed to be put on a diet when she was just 10 years old. Olivia went on to say that her father was amazing but like Type A, who had run over a dozen of marathons. 

She admitted being put on a diet when she was just 10, but at the same time, it made her realize that when you put in the work, you get the results. 

Though it might have been difficult for a 10-year-old Olivia to go on such diets at such an early age, in the long run, it helped her to stay fit throughout.
