Pearl Teese

Your Reigning Miss Premier International 2017

Please join us in congratulating Pearl Teese for taking the crown and the title at this year's Miss Premier International Pageant!

Pearl resides in San Francisco, where she is a professional mental health advocate, performer and community activist.

If you were in our audience this year, you were treated to a next-level competition between seasoned professionals that had the crowd on their feet. Out of a possible total score of 1000, only 12 points separated first and second place.
