Miss Teen Oregon 2003 is all grown up




Hey, remember her? If not, this is a picture of Brook Roberts, Miss Teen Oregon 2004 and the recent subject of a Welcome to Blog caption contest. So do you remember? Great, now forget about her. Let's focus instead on Miss Teen Oregon 2003. Her name is Kari Ann Peniche and, after conquering the world of Oregon pageantry in summer of 2003, she went on to become Miss Teen USA.

So why was Peniche recently stripped of her crown? Because the Portland native is currently appearing stark raving nude in the November issue of Playboy magazine. While her reign ended before the issue hit the stands, pageant officials were insistent and she apparently missed out on the final few weeks of her term on the throne. Making things even more confusing, she turned 20 months ago, which, if logic serves, means she shouldn't have been ruling in the first place.




Peniche's rise and fall as overlord over stateside teen pageantry is a sad one but enough about that. While purusing a copy of the November issue in search of the Oliver Stone review (honest!), my eyes just so happened on the former teen queen's pictorial. Check out these fun Peniche factoids:

- She was the only girl on her high school's all-mens soccer team. Kari was also a member of the cheerleading squad.

- She volunteers with Alzheimer's patients in her spare time and claims, "they have better stories than we do."

- Kari played a cheerleader in the direct-to-video Species 3 and recently finished shooting a role opposite Burt Reynolds and Ray Romano in Grilled, set for release in January. The movie has something to do with meat salesmen. That's right, meat salesmen.

- Fun Kari quote: "I am definitely a tomboy, but I am forever a girl. I was always into rock climbing, biking and other outdoor activities but I did pageants and cheerleading too. I can put on high heels and a dress when I need to." Playboy adds to this: "or slip out of them." Accompanying this quote? A picture of Kari wearing...only high heels.

The issue also contains a brief bit on Joe Perry's new clothing line. Quote? "Rock and roll sets you free and clothes help send that message." Good to know.

Kari will be signing copies tomorrow afternoon at Rich's Cigar Shop downtown. For more info, click here.
