Olivia Jordan, who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has attended Boston University.She has a B.S. in Health Science and has worked as a group fitness instructor and a personal trainer. She has acted in many commercials and movies including, most recently, Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Olivia Jordan was wearing a hot pink strapless dress for the final ceremony where she was picked as a winner. She deftly fielded the decisive round of the interview questions by coming up with an answer that charmed the audience and cleared her way to be the next woman to win the Miss USA crown. She beat 50 other contestants to win the crown.

Jordan gave a unique answer during the interview segment which made her stand out as a contestant. When each contestant was asked two questions and answer the questions whithin the 30 seconds’ time frame,she charmed the judges and audience with her response. When asked what the next big issue is that the U.S. needs to tackle, she said it was race relations. “We have not solved this issue,” Jordan famously pointed out. “We really need to work on being an accepting society.”

This response cinched the deal for Miss Oklahoma who took the crown from last year’s winner, Nia Sanchez of Nevada.

The 26-year-old winner beat the first runner-up Yliana Guerra, 22, of Texas for the crown. The second runner-up position was won by Anea Garcia, 20, of Rhode Island. They were followed by 25-year-old Miss Nevada Brittany McGown as third runner-up and then Miss Maryland Mame Adjei, 23, who was the last one to make it into the top five contestant’s list.

Miss USA pageant was mired in controversy this year because of Donald Trump’s controversial public statements this year. He was forced to leave the pageant after he had made the controversial comment about Mexican immigrants.
