Donald Trump has owned the Miss USA pageant since 2002, but no longer. VME/IMG has purchased the competition and looks forward to making many exciting changes. One change that will by visible tonight is the addition of Alexandra Miller. She was selected for the 51 state runner-ups. Alexandra Miller, the first runner-up for Miss Oklahoma, was chosen by American voters online to be the 52nd contestant this year.

In Miss USA, there is no talent competition. The 52 contestants will be judged only in these categories: swimsuit, evening gown, and a personality interview. All of the contestants have had a support system helping them get ready for this exciting event and for sure they will bring their best!

Miss USA 2015, Olivia Jordan, who successfully represented Oklahoma in 2015, will have the honor of crowning Miss USA 2016 tonight. Hopefully, the two will form a strong bond and she can help the new Miss USA with this exciting, eventful, and rewarding job with many responsibilities.
