BATON ROUGE, La. – Miss Oklahoma Olivia Jordan was crowned Miss USA 2015 on Sunday night in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The 26-year-old Tulsa native earned a B.S. in Health Sciences from Boston University. While in college, Jordan worked as a fitness instructor and started up a self-defense workshop in conjunction with her sorority, Alpha Phi. The new Miss USA has worked both as a model and an actress — she can be seen in “Hot Tub Time Machine 2″ — and has been published by Cosmo, Shape and Vogue Japan.

Miss Texas Ylianna Guerra and Miss Rhode Island Anea Garcia were the first and second runners-up, respectively. Miss Nevada Brittany McGowan and Miss Maryland Mame Adjei rounded out the Top 5 of the competition.

Miss USA 2015 was hosted by Todd Newton and former Miss Wisconsin USA 2009 Alex Wehrley and included a performance by former “Voice” contestant Adley Stump. The event aired on Reelz following a fallout between NBC and Donald Trump concerning the politician’s comments about Mexican immigrants during his 2016 presidential bid announcement.
