Miss Texas USA 2015 is Ylianna Guerra
, the first titleholder from the Rio Grande Valley since the 1960s! Ylianna placed second runner-up last year and was a semi-finalist in 2012. She also won the Miss Photogenic award.
Three of the 2014 runners-up made top five again: Ylianna, first runner-up Alejandra Gonzalez, 4RU last year and Peyton Saverance, 3RU last year. This is the first time three of the previous year’s runners-up made the top five since 2005 (when all four runners-up made top five!). The other two runners-up this year were Brianna Webb (second runner-up) and Logan Lester (third runner-up). Brianna, Logan and semi-finalist Chaney Shadrock were all semi-finalists at Miss Texas Teen USA 2011. Congratulations to Logan for making top five her first year competing in Miss! This was the third year in a row that there were no blondes in the top five!
The rest of the top 18 included past semi-finalists Kenda Carroll, Ligia De Uriarte, Christina Entsminger, Alex Nini, Melissa Novak, Andrea Fox, and Victoria Sinclair and 2013 & 2014 first runner-up Jordan Schultz. Others in the top 18 were 2013 Teen first runner-up Ciara Jasso and 2013 Iowa semi-finalist Lauren Kennewell. The only newbies to make the cut were Danielle Bosley and Katie Sicula.
