miss teen usa 1991

Miss Teen USA 1991, the ninth Miss Teen USA pageant, was televised live from the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi on 19 August 1991.

At the conclusion of the final competition, Janel Bishop of New Hampshire was crowned by outgoing titleholder Bridgette Wilson of Oregon. Bishop is the first African American winner ever and the first titleholder from New Hampshire.

The pageant was hosted by Dick Clark for the first of three years, with color commentary by Leeza Gibbons and Miss Teen USA 1985 Kelly Hu for the second time. Music was provided by the Gulf Coast Teen Orchestra.

This was the second of five years that the pageant was held in Biloxi. After the city hosted Miss Teen USA 1990, it entered negotiations with the Miss Universe company in October 1990 to host the pageant for a further four years, and an announcement to that effect was made in early November.

1st runner-up: Meredith Young (Georgia)
2nd runner-up: Audra Sherman (Missouri)

The other top six finalists were (in order of placement): Nicci Elkins (North Dakota), Holly Furman (North Carolina) and Allison MacIntyre (Louisiana).

The remaining semi-finalists were (in order of placement): Heather Hart (Indiana), Kara Williams (Texas), Denise Blatchford (Kansas), Erinn Bartlett (Massachusetts), Gina Tognoni (Rhode Island), Rachel Childers (Oklahoma)
