The pageant was forced to air on small TV network ReelzChannel after its usual broadcasters, NBC and Univision, cut all ties with the program.

Presidential candidate Mr Trump made derogatory remarks about Mexican immigrants, prompting many of his commercial partners to revoke their contracts.

Mr Trump was even removed from his long-running TV show The Apprentice. He did not attend the pageant.

Ms Jordan defeated 50 other contestants to win the prize.
