Miss USA Nana Meriwether and Miss Universe Olivia Culpo attend the crowning ceremony of the new Miss …

Nana Meriwether reigns as the prettiest lady in the States. Donald Trump crowned the 27-year-old beauty Miss USA after Olivia Culpo won Miss Universe and had to give up her Miss USA sash.

"It's such a great New Year's gift to have Olivia win and that means I got bumped up to fulfill her reign," Nana exclaimed to Healthy Hollywood.

The new Miss USA has beauty and brains. She graduated from UCLA and has her sights on medical school.

"There's such a stereotype that we are only about our looks. It's nice to have girls with substance and that what Miss USA celebrates," Nana added.

The statuesque beauty is also serious about staying in shape. She played volleyball during college and even trained for the Olympics. "Working out absolutely affects me, especially after being an athlete at UCLA and working out every single day. I still need to do that. I'm also used to staying healthy with vegetables and good for you foods."

Nana reveals to Healthy Hollywood she loves to do yoga and practices 4 to 5 times a week. "It helps lengthen me out and it's great for me mentally." She also likes to sweat it out with cardio. And, now that she's living in New York City, Nana says her favorite place to run is Central Park. "It is so peaceful and love to get out there and take a jog."

And, for all you guys out there, Nana says she's single, but for now she's married to her crown.
