by at . Comments

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.

Nia Sanchez may have taken the coveted Miss USA crown, but she's still under fire from some feminists.


I never met her, she sounds like a total bitch when I read about her. I don't know what she was like in high school. I think she was a mean girl, who used to bully outsiders and geeks in her school. She was a cheerleader, honor student and dated the captain of the football team. Look down on us. Now she is in a soroity in TCU where she will bully and pick on geeks and loser sororities. Miss Teen USA has a sweel head and still the same bitch she was in high schoo.


I don't know if her personality has changed or the sweet girl is just a front, but what I do know is that she used to bully me and make me feel horrible about myself when all I wanted to be was just her friend when we were younger. I don't like how she is supposed to be an example for kids when when she was one, she made me feel belittled, stupid, and would try to embarrass me when I would say or do something.


She is a stunning and intelligent girl and comes from a great family in Harlingen. The apple has not fallen far from the tree at all here!


Oh come on! She's stunning? Doug Hutchison's new bride is so much more beautiful. She would have won had she entered the competition.


She is a pole vaulter, cheerleader, volunteer organizer and just graduated 9th in her high school class. She's the whole package.


This time the judges got it right! She is stunning!


She is stunning. Don't know if intelligence or talent enter into the selection at all but, on looks alone, she screams "champion!"


gorgeous hair!


She is certainly a beautiful girl...18? REALLY? OMG!
