- Alabama is the most successful state this year with a top five placement at Miss USA and third runner-up at Miss Teen USA, as well as Peyton winning Miss Congeniality and Erin winning Photogenic. Alabama's last top five placement was in 1992. This was their second Teen Photogenic award in three years.

- South Carolina is on a six-year placement streak, including winning in 2014, placing 1RU in 2013 and 2RU this year.

- Tennessee is on a four-year streak.
- Delaware has now placed at Miss Teen USA in 2014, Miss USA 2015 and Miss Teen USA 2016! This was DE's fourth teen placement.
