Miss USA crowned World Snap­shot:

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

TWENTY- six- year- old Olivia Jor­dan of Ok­la­homa has won the 64th an­nual Miss USA con­test, beat­ing 50 other women from states around the coun­try and the Dis­trict ofo Columbia.

Twenty- two- year- old Ylianna Guerra of Texas was named first run­ner- up. This year’s con­test, held in Ba­ton Rouge, Louisiana, had been largely over­shad­owed by com­ments made by pageant co- owner and real es­tate mogul Don­ald Trump while run­ning for pres­i­dent. Trump crit­i­cised Mex­i­can im­mi­grants in com­ments that led to wide­spread fall­out against his busi­ness deal­ings in­clud­ing the pageant.

Broad­cast­ers dropped the pageant and a slew of celebri­ties lined up to per­form, judge and host dropped out.
