SejarahSunting

Alfred Patricelli dari Bridgeport, Connecticut, menjadi Direktur Eksekutif dari Miss World USA[1] selama kehadirannya pada 1958 hingga 1977. Pemegang titel pada tahun 1969, Gail Renshaw, mengundurkan diri setelah berpartisipasi di Miss World 1969 untuk menikah, dan digantikan oleh Runner-up 1. Pada tahun 1973, Marjorie Wallace memenangi gelar Miss World dan diganti oleh Runner-up 2.[2]

Selama awal tahun 1978, BBS Productions, Inc., berbasis di New York City, endapat waralaba Amerika Serikat untuk kontes Miss World. Griff O'Neil adalah Presiden Miss World America pada tahun 1978 dan 1979. Pada tahun 1980, kontes Miss World America membantu Kidney Foundation di New York[3]

Sejak 1981 hingga 1991, perwakilan Amerika ke Miss World adalah Runner-up 1 pada kontes Miss USA. Organisasi Miss World menginginkan pengumuman publik saat final kontes Miss USA bahwa Runner-up 1 akan menuju Miss World, tetapi ditolak. Karenanya, setelah tahun 1991, Organisasi Miss World tidak mau menerima Runner-up 1s dari Miss USA. Guy-Rex (Richard Guy dan Rex Holt) memproduksi tiga pemenang Miss World America sejak 1992 hingga 1994.[4]

Sejak 2007 (dengan pengecualian untuk tahun 2012), semua perwakilan bekerja sebagai model untuk Elite Model Management, pemegang lisensi untuk Miss World di Amerika Serikat.[5]
