She’s beauty and she’s grace!

On Sunday, Olivia Jordan, AKA Miss Oklahoma, was crowned Miss USA 2015 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. With her runner-up being Miss Texas Ylianna Guerra. Congrats!

The blonde beauty’s predecessor Nia Sanchez even took to Instagram to congratulate the new public figure on her big win!

She posted:

This beauty queen’s victory follows Donald Trump‘s recent controversy which almost caused the annual event to not happen.

After being dropped by NBC and several celebrity judges and hosts, the show was eventually rescued by the Reelz network.

In fact, after all the hype, the co-owner of the pageant didn’t even attend the controversial parade.

The reality star took to Twitter to explain his absence.

He wrote:

Hmm, very inneresting! Especially, since a spokesperson for the presidential hopeful explained that the outspoken celeb had no official events on Sunday and would be traveling to New York. Huh?!

Although the show went on this time around, drama isn’t quite over for the real estate tycoon. It’s reported that Mexico is still planning on withdrawing from the upcoming Miss Universe pageant. Yikes!

Though we’re happy for the newest Miz USA, we hope Donald has learned something from this whole experience.
