Miss Oklahoma Olivia Jordan lifts her arm in shock as she's crowned Miss USA by Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez

Olivia Jordan of Oklahoma was crowned Miss USA on Sunday, beating 50 other contestants and overcoming weeks of controversy generated by pageant co-owner Donald Trump to win the 64th annual pageant.

The 26-year-old winner was followed by first runner-up Yliana Guerra, 22, of Texas, and second runner-up Anea Garcia, 20, of Rhode Island. They were followed by 25-year-old Miss Nevada Brittany McGown, 25, third runner-up and then Miss Maryland Mame Adjei, 23, to round out the top five.

Trump, the pageant co-owner and real estate mogul, slammed Mexican immigrants in comments during his announcement that he was running for president. That led to widespread fallout against his business dealings, including the pageant. He wasn't present at Sunday's pageant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

Guerra, who earned the first runner-up title, was one of three contestants with Hispanic heritage.
