Miss Teen USA 2001, the 19th Miss Teen USA pageant, was televised live from South Padre Island, Texas on 22 August 2001. At the conclusion of the final competition, Marissa Whitley of Missouri was crowned by outgoing queen Jillian Parry of Pennsylvania.

Host city[edit]

After hosting the pageant for three consecutive years from 1998–2000, officials in Shreveport, Louisiana indicated that they were reluctant to host the pageant for a fourth year because disorganization by the Miss Universe Organization meant that the city lost over $70,000 in expected revenue.[1]
