The Miss Teen USA pageant crowned a new, gorgeous titleholder last night in Danielle Doty, an 18-year-old hailing from Harlingen, Texas.

Doty beat out Audra Mari of North Dakota to win the title and will take over from the reigning Miss Teen USA, Kamie Crawford of Maryland.

Alexis Swanstrom (Miss Teen California), Taylor Clark (Miss Teen Kansas) and Sydnee Stottlemyre (Miss Teen Missouri) rounded out the top five.

The prestigious beauty pageant, which streamed live online, did not take place in the United States, but rather at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.

Danielle Doty is the second Texan to be named Miss Teen USA. Christie Lee Woods, who later starred on The Amazing Race, won the title in 1996.

Other notable Miss Teen USA title holders include Bridgette Wilson-Sampras (1990), Vanessa Minnillo (1998) and Tami Farrell (2003), who later went on to become Miss California after Carrie Prejean stripped and was stripped of her crown.

Alyssa Campanella was named Miss USA last month.
