Delaware winners and contestants

In terms of number of placements and awards, Delaware is one of the least successful states at Miss Teen USA. However, Ashley Coleman broke the mold to win the Miss Teen USA crown in 1999. Delaware also made its first back to back placement in 2015 and 2016

Miss Delaware Teen USA 2000, Carrie Aiken, and 2001, Christie Aiken, are sisters. Miss Delaware Teen USA 1997, Cheryl Crowe, was the first and so far only Delaware teen to cross over to the Miss Delaware USA title. Miss Delaware Teen USA 2011, Amanda Debus, was the first, and so far only, Delaware teen to cross over from the Miss Delaware's Outstanding Teen title, she is also the only successful MAO/MUO crossover in Delaware. Amanda Debus is the first USA titleholder to win Miss Delaware in the Miss America system.

Melissa King

On February 26, 2013, Melissa King resigned her crown when confronted with the surfacing of an online commercial pornographic sex video that stars her.[1][2][3]

The former Miss Delaware Teen USA was paid $1,500 for the porn shoot.[4] The video producers said that King contacted them to shoot the video and was willing to film more scenes.[4]

Hailey Lawler, the runner-up, replaced her.[5]
