Cherise Haugen won as Miss Teen USA Illinois. Following her victory she went to work as a model in Chicago and had one small acting role in the Michael J. Fox and Joan Jett movie "Light of Day." Fun fact: The 1984 Miss Teen USA pageant was held only 8 months after 1983's so many states hadn't had their 1984 pageant. Thus, contestants were made up of "winners and runner-ups."
