A Tulsa woman  won the Miss USA title on Sunday night. Olivia Jordan represented her home state in the Miss USA pageant in Baton Rouge. 
A total of 51 women competed for the crown.

Jordan will go on to compete for the title of Miss Universe.

Jordan is the reigning Miss Oklahoma USA. She is a Bishop Kelley graduate and earned a B.S. in Health Science from Boston University.

A model and actress, Olivia also volunteers for the Alzheimer's Association and works to raise awareness of child sex trafficking.

The Miss USA Pageant was broadcast live on Reelz Channel and was livestreamed on the Miss USA website.

For the final question, all contestants were asked who should be on the $10 bill if it is to be changed to a woman's picture. Answers of Oprah to "let's wait and see who wins the presidental election," were given by others.

Jordan confidently stated that "Harriet Tubman would show how far we've come and how far we have to go."

Miss Texas USA was first-runner up.
