Claudia Jordan is an American television and radio personality, as well as a model. She is most famous for being the model holding case number one on the NBC game show, "Deal or No Deal," as well as a contestant on season two and six of "Celebrity Apprentice."
Born to an Italian mother and African-American father, Claudia Angela Jordan grew up in Providence, Rhode Island where she attended East Providence High School. While there, she honed her athletic skills, eventually earning all-state honors in track and field as a sprinter. She even went on to compete in three Junior Olympics, as well as become an All-American sprinter in the 400-meter relay at Baldwin Wallace College in Ohio. While in attendance there, Claudia worked for the Providence American Newspaper, as well as the Boston television station, WHDH-TV.
Of course, being such a natural athlete meant having an incredible body. Therefore, Claudia began competing in modeling competitions, earning the title of Miss Rhode Island Teen USA in time for the 1990 Miss Teen USA pageant. In 1997, she even took the Miss Rhode Island USA title. This, in turn, lead to further modeling opportunities, namely becoming one of Barker's Beauties on "The Price is Right" from 2001 to 2003. Again, this only lead to bigger opportunities, as she was then selected to be the model for case number one on NBC's "Deal or No Deal."
Claudia is so much more than a model, however. She has gone on to be a very famous television and radio personality. On the TV front, she is easily most famous for being a contestant on both season two and season six of the popular NBC reality series, "Celebrity Apprentice." As for radio, at one point Claudia hosted her own weekly Sirius/XM Radio series on Jamie Foxx's The Foxxhole, called "The Claudia Jordan Show." She's even helped co-host the Miss Universe pageant on several occasions, and shows no signs of slowing down in the near future.
