The United States has continuously sent a representative to Miss World since its inception in 1951. The United States have won the Miss World crown three times in 1973, 1990 and 2010. Currently, America’s Miss World is the official national pageant that selects the contestant from the United States to Miss World..

In 2014, in an effort from Julia Morley who wanted all national directors to hold a national pageant to select the representative of their country as opposed to only designate, Christopher Wilmer, the organizer of the Miss United States pageant, was appointed as the national director of Miss Worldin the United States. As a result, the winner of Miss United States 2014 was selected to compete at Miss World because she met the age requirements of the international pageant. In 2015, Wilmer reinstated the Miss World America pageant in order to properly reflect Miss World’s age and contest requirements. Miss World America was held in 2015 and 2016.

In 2017, Lynne Scott Safrit and her daughter Elizabeth Safrit, became co-national directors of Miss World in the United States and created America’s Miss World.

In 2018, Michael Blakey became co-national director of Miss World in the United States.
