America has a new Miss USA! Olivia Jordan, Miss Oklahoma, was crowned Sunday night, leaving Miss Texas Ylianna Guerra as first runner-up and Miss Rhode Island Anea Garcia as second runner-up.
After a competitive pageant -- which followed weeks of controversy which saw the program get dropped from NBC and lose all of its original hosts due to comments made by pageant co-owner Donald Trump -- the 26-year-old Jordan took home the title and couldn't contain her excitement as she was crowned.
Jordan will take over the title of Miss USA from 2014 winner Nia Sanchez of Nevada.
Jordan's stand-out moment came during the interview portion of the competition when she was asked what would be the next big social issue America would need to tackle.
Jordan chose race relations as an issue that the U.S. needed to solve.
"We have not solved this issue," Jordan shared with the crowd. "We really need to work on being an accepting society."
Race relations has been a hot-button issue in regards to the Miss USA pageant in recent weeks after Donald Trump made a number of controversial anti-immigration comments during his speech in June to announce his presidential bid.
In the wake of his comments, which many saw as racially insensitive, Univision and NBC cut ties with Trump, leaving the Miss USA pageant without a network. It was soon picked up by Reelz Channel, but not before the pageant's hosts dropped out, leaving the producers to scramble for talent.
Trump was notably absent from this year's pageant. Instead he attended a political rally supporting his run for the White House.
