Miss Oklahoma Olivia Jordan is the new Miss USA 2015

The United States of American has chosen its representative at the upcoming 2015 Miss Universe pageant – Miss Oklahoma Olivia Jordan who was crowned the new Miss USA 2015.

A native of Tulsa, 26-year-old gorgeous Olivia Jordan topped the chart of 50 contestants at the Baton Rouge Civic Center in Louisiana to succeed last year’s Nia Sanchez of Nevada. Whether it was her beauty or her intelligent answers as she talked about race-relations in the question-answer session, Olivia won the hearts of the judges and the spectators alike. Her statement on the stage, “I think we still need to talk about race relations in this country. We have not solved this issue. We are still having problems and we keep hearing about new issues that are coming up. We really need to work on being an accepting society and being a society where every single person, no matter your race, no matter your gender, is given the same rights and privileges and opportunities,” comes in the backdrop of pageant co-owner and president candidate Donald Trump’s recent derogatory comments on Mexican immigrants where he called them “rapists” and “criminals.”

Her final dress as she was crowned the pageant winner was hot pink strapless dress that sat well on her slim build matching with her lovely face. When asked about the woman should grace the $10 bill in 2020, she initially wished that Oprah Winfrey was eligible but then settled on Harriet Tubman saying, “There are some amazing women in American history. I think Harriet Tubman would be a beautiful example of where we have been, and how far we are coming and how far we still have to go. Thank you” (Harriet was a former slave helped other escaped slaves obtain freedom).

With Olivia Jordan taking the Miss USA 2015 crown, the runners up were Miss Texas Ylianna Guerra (1st runner up) and Miss Rhode Island Anea Garcia, Miss Nevada Brittany McGowan and Miss Maryland Mame Adjei in that order.

Jordan is a graduate of Boston University with a B.S. in Health Science and was also a group fitness instructor and a personal trainer during this time. She has also featured in several national and international commercials and feature films including Hot Tub Time Machine 2. With this win, she will hold the crown for a year.
