'ACCESS HOLLYWOOD'S' SHAUN ROBINSON AND MTV'S DAMIEN FAHEY TO HOST 'MISS TEEN USA � 2006,' LIVE FROM PALM SPRINGS ON NBC, TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 8-10 P.M. ET

Musical Artists JoJo, Ashley Parker Angel and Lucas Grabeel from "High School Musical" Set to Perform

Palm Springs, Calif. -- August 7, 2006 - "Access Hollywood's" popular correspondent Shaun Robinson will take the stage alongside "Total Request Live" host Damien Fahey, to host "MISS TEEN USA � 2006," live from Palm Springs, California on August 15 from 8 -10 p.m. on NBC. Former O-Town member Ashley Parker Angel, pop star JoJo and Lucas Grabeel of the hit television movie "High School Musical" will perform during the live telecast.

The Miss Teen USA title proved to be a major stepping stone in launching the careers of several former titleholders including, Vanessa Minnillo (1998), Bridgette Wilson-Sampras (1990) and Kelly Hu (1985), to name a few. Former Miss Teen USA contestants include "Access Hollywood" and "Today" show correspondent Maria Menounos and MTV's "Total Request Live" host and former Miss USA, Susie Castillo (2003).

The current Miss Teen USA, Allie LaForce, is a self-proclaimed "tomboy" from Vermilion, OH. In addition to being first in her class academically, LaForce is also on the varsity basketball, softball and volleyball teams at her high school and hopes to parlay her love of sports and entertainment into a career as a sportscaster. She will crown her successor at the conclusion of the two-hour primetime telecast. Each contestant from the 50 states and the District of Columbia will compete in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview.

"My year as Miss Teen USA has helped me grow beyond any of my expectations," says LaForce. "I have met amazing people, been all over the United States and to amazing countries around the world, and have tried hard to be the best role model for teens that I could be."

Some of the highlights of LaForce's reign included a 90-mile charity bike ride on behalf of the Best Buddies organization; founded a branch of the "Sparrows Club" at her high school, and helped raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The Miss Universe Organization, producers of the MISS UNIVERSE�, MISS USA� and MISS TEEN USA� Pageants, is a Donald J. Trump and NBC Universal partnership. Miss Teen USA spends her year building relationships with organizations committed to education and action, such as Best Buddies, Do Something, Sparrow Clubs, D.A.R.E. and MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).
