Olivia Jordan from Oklahoma is officially Miss USA! Keep reading to find out EVERYTHING you need to know about the the 2015 Miss USA titleholder.

Congrats, Olivia! The model-actress from Tulsa, Oklahoma has been awarded the honor of repping America as Miss USA 2015. Olivia follows in the footsteps of Nia Sanchez, 25, who passed along the title during a very emotional crowing ceremony.
Olivia strutted her stuff across the stage (and eloquently answered tough interview Qs!) during the live 3-hour telecast hosted by Todd Newton and Alex Wehrley — going up against 50 other eligible ladies. The final five came down to Nevada, Rhode Island, Maryland, Texas and of course, Oklahoma! Olivia is Miss USA 2015, but what else do we need to know about her?
1. She’s been in some of your favorite films and TV shows.
Think Olivia looks familiar? Well, it might just be because you’ve seen her pretty face grace the silver screen and your television set. The 5’11” stunner has appeared in movies like Ted, Here Comes the Boom and Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Not only that, she’s guest-starred on Lifetime’s new dramedy, UnREAL.
2. But wait. She’s more than just a pretty face.
Olivia is one smart cookie. The 26-year-old hasn’t only killed the pageant (and acting) game; she’s also obtained one heck of an education studying at Boston University. In May 2011, she graduated from the esteemed school with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. Beauty and brains, we likey.
3. She’s had lots of practice leading up to Miss USA 2015.
This ain’t Olivia’s first time at the rodeo. Prior to winning Miss USA 2015, she has competed for plenty of other crowns. Past titles? Along with Miss Oklahoma USA 2015, she’s won Miss World United States 2013 and Miss Beverly Hills United States 2013. Clearly, this girl’s a pro.
4. She rides hard for the LGBT community.
OJ is all about equality — which we absolutely love about her! Having posed in the past for the famed pro-LGBT NoH8 campaign, she was particularly ecstatic on June 26, when the Supreme Court ruled same sex marriage legal in all 50 states. “#LoveWins and it’s about time. Look forward to days in our future with #NoH8 💕 (insert Pride flag emoji here) #hope #love #equalityforall,” she wrote to her 42.1K social media followers on the historic day. Swoon.
5. She’s a mom! Well, kinda…
Olivia considers herself a “mom” to a little fur-baby by the name of Franklin, an adorable dog she adopted with Instagram hottie/model Colin Owens (her maybe boyfriend?). The pageant princess describes her pup as an Aquarius who “loves cuddles, squeak toys & Willie Nelson.” To see Franklin in all his cuteness, CLICK HERE.
