Smith became the seventh Texan titleholder, the first Miss Texas USA and Miss USA to win the Congeniality award and also the only Miss USA from Texas to win the Miss Universe title. She also became the 4th winner to be crowned as Miss USA in her home state.

After Chelsi won the 1995 Miss Universe pageant, first runner-up Shanna Moakler inherited her Miss USA title. Moakler was the first former Miss Teen USA delegate to hold the Miss USA title.

The pageant was held on South Padre Island, Texas for the second time. It was hosted by Bob Goen for the second consecutive year, and Daisy Fuentes offered colour commentary. Barry Manilow provided entertainment during the competition.

The following are the contestants' scores in the preliminary competition.

Miss Universe 2004

Countries and territories which sent delegates and results.

Miss Universe 2004, the fifty-third Miss Universe pageant was held in Centro de Convenciones CEMEXPO, Quito, Ecuador on June 1, 2004. It was won by Jennifer Hawkins of Australia.

Delegates arrived in Quito from May 12, 2004 and participated in three weeks of events, rehearsals and preliminary competitions prior to the final televised competition. Events took place in Quito, Guayaquil, Cuenca, and Riobamba.

For the second consecutive year, Billy Bush and Daisy Fuentes hosted the final televised pageant, with entertainment from Gloria Estefan.

At the conclusion of the final competition, Australian model Jennifer Hawkins was crowned Miss Universe 2004, by outgoing titleholder Amelia Vega of the Dominican Republic. Hawkins was the first Australian titleholder since Kerry Anne Wells won in 1972. She was also the first blonde Miss Universe since Angela Visser in 1989.

Quito, Ecuador was announced as host city of the pageant on 19 August 2003. The city paid $5 million for the right to host the event, although it anticipated recouping this through visitors and promotion of the country during the televised competition.

In March Ecuador's foreign trade minister was forced to reject rumours that the pageant was at risk of being moved to China, and he urged Ecuadoreans to back the pageant. As an added incentive for tourists, Ecuador American Airlines, official airline sponsor of the pageant, offered 5% off airfares to Quito for travel to the pageant, as well as 10% off for those who booked a month in advance. The attempted use of the pageant to promote Ecuador threatened to be derailed just prior to the telecast, when a corruption scandal led to growing demands for the removal of President Lucio Gutierrez in the politically unstable country.

Prior to the arrival of delegates in early May, officials in Quito attempted to renovate areas where they would be visiting, which involved temporarily removing beggars and homeless people from certain areas of the city. Similar action was taken in Bangkok, Thailand prior to Miss Universe 1992 and in Manila, Philippines prior to Miss Universe 1994. The event was protested by native Indian activists and environmentalists who accused the government of concealing the nations poverty whilst the pageant was being hosted.

The delegates, judges, media and tourists were heavily protected by a security detail involving over 5000 police officers. On 16 May, just hours before delegates were expected to participate in a parade in Cuenca, a pamphlet bomb was deactivated by police. Although it was protesting the economic policies of the Ecuadorean government, police suspected that the bomb, found just six blocks from the parade route, was timed specifically to coincide with the event.

Kwame Jackson, runner-up on the second season of The Apprentice, was initially chosen as a judge, but he was disqualified because he inadvertently visited the hotel where the delegates were staying and interacted with some of the contestants.

Miss USA 2003

Map showing placements by state

The Miss USA 2003 pageant was held in San Antonio, Texas in 24 March 2003. The pageant was won by Susie Castillo of Massachusetts, who was crowned by outgoing queen Shauntay Hinton of the District of Columbia.

Daisy Fuentes co-hosted the event for the first time (although she had been a color commentator in 1995), joined by Billy Bush who would also host the 2004 and 2005 events, as well as the Miss Universe pageants all three years. Color commentary was added by Shauntay Hinton, Miss USA 2002. Entertainment was provided by Burn The Floor.

The pageant was held in San Antonio, Texas, the first time it had been held in this state since 1996 when the pageant was hosted by South Padre Island. It was the latest it had been held since 1986, as previous pageants had been held in February or early March.

The format reverted to a top ten who competed in swimsuit and evening gown, although, as with 2002, there was no interview competition for the semi-finalists. This would be the last year where a top ten was called, from the following Miss Universe Organization pageant, Miss Universe 2003, fifteen semi-finalists have been called each year.

Castillo was the second woman from Massachusetts to win the title, the other being Shawnae Jebbia who held the title in 1998. She was the fourth former Miss Teen USA delegate to win the crown, as she had been Jebbia's sister titleholder as Miss Massachusetts Teen USA 1998.

Many Miss USA pageant winners have worn white gowns and Castillo continued this tradition. She was the first Miss USA winner to be crowned with the new Mikimoto-designed crown valued at $200,000, which features over 480 diamonds and almost 120 South Sea and Akoya pearls.

Later Mrs. Hawaii United States 2004 and 1st Runner up at Mrs. United States 2004.

She and her teammate finished 3rd on The Amazing Race 5.
