Miss USA 2015 Pageant Recap

The 2015 Miss USA pageant was held on July 12, 2015, at the Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Nia Sanchez of Nevada crowned Olivia Jordan from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Fifty-one contestants competed for the crown. Miss USA represents the United States in the Miss Universe competition.

In the days leading up to the 2015 Miss USA pageant, NBC, Univision, judges and emcees cut ties with the pageant. These actions were due to a statement made by Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss USA organization. Trump's statements were about illegal immigration on the Mexican border. Thankfully, Reelz Channel picked up the pageant's finals competition telecast.

Preliminary Competition began on Wednesday, July 8th at 8 PM CT/9 PM ET with the Finals Telecast on Sunday, July 12th at 7 PM CT/8 PM ET. In addition to Reelz picking up the pageant, the competition was also streamed live on the Miss USA website.

Notable to mention, during the Miss USA 2015 pageant, all of the judges were former Miss USA's and this was the first time that Delaware has made the Top 15 at Miss USA.

Here are the Onstage Questions that the contestants who made it to top 5 were asked:

Miss USA 2015, Olivia Jordan

Miss Oklahoma USA's question was from Judge 8, Brooke Lee, and was "The confederate flag, excessive force by police, and same sex marriage are all recent hot button issues in our country. What do you think will be the next that we need to talk about on a national level?"

Miss Oklahoma USA responded with, "I think we still need to talk about race relations in this country. We have not solved this issue. We are still having problems and we keep hearing about new issues that are coming up. We really need to work on being an accepting society and being a society where every single person, no matter your race, no matter your gender, is given the same rights and privileges and opportunities."

Miss Texas USA 2015, Ylianna Guerra

Miss Texas USA's question was from Judge 2, Michelle Mclean-Bailey, and was "Last year, CEOs in the United States made around 300 times as much as the average worker's salary. Should the government impose boundaries on salaries of executives?"

Ylianna's answer was, "That's a very good question. You know, I think that if you work hard enough, you can attain anything. This is the land of opportunity. CEOs, I believe that they work hard enough for their money so I think that they should be able to attain whatever it is that they are working for."

Miss Rhode Island USA 2015, Anea Garcia

Miss Rhode Island USA chose the card for Judge 5 Tara Conner. Tara's question was "Recently comedian Jerry Seinfeld spoke out against political correctness in our culture. Do you think political correctness is hurting or helping this country and why?"

Rhode Island: "That's a very good question. I think that it's a balance of both. We definitely need... Can you please repeat the question again? I think that it's a balance of both. We need people to remind us, especially politicians, of what to do right and what to do wrong. It's never..." *Cue the gasps from pageant girls across the country* We were so sad to watch this happen to Anea.

Miss Maryland USA 2015, Mame Adjei

Miss Maryland's question came from Judge 3 Nana Merriwether and was, " The United States has agreed to formally reopen it's embassy in Cuba. Do you think that this change will be a positive one for both countries?"

Maryland: "I think that it will be a positive trade. I think that it's an awesome thing to open our doors to all countries, all nations and to mend our relations with everyone. We should not be holding onto old grudges. We should be moving forward and accepting each other and loving one another and moving forward so that we can create better relations, better society and govern our countries better that way."

Miss Nevada USA 2015, Brittany McGowan

Before we talk about Brittany's question, let's talk about her mini-conversation before the question. Brittany showed such excitement and enthusiasm for being in the top 5 that it brought a smile to my face.

Brittany McGowan chose Judge 1 Crystle Stewart and her question was, "What would you do to improve race relations in the US? Please be specific."

Brittany's answer was, "What I would do to improve race relations in the US is get more races grouped together and be with each other in a non... I think what we did to do is bring... we need to be more accepting of each other and we need to bring people together. That's what I think we need to do."
