Miss USAEdit

Ray won the title of Miss New Jersey USA 1991 in August 1990, the first time she entered the pageant.[1] She went on to represent New Jersey in the 1991 Miss USA pageant, which was televised live from Wichita, Kansas on February 22, 1991. Ray made the top ten in seventh place after the preliminary competition, and won the interview portion of the semifinal competition and came fourth in swimsuit. After the evening gown, swimsuit and interview competitions, Ray's average score placed her third overall. She improved after the final question, placing first runner-up to Kelli McCarty of Kansas.[2]

Miss WorldEdit

Later that year, as first runner-up to Miss USA 1991, Ray gained the right to represent the United States at Miss World 1991 held in Atlanta, Georgia.[3] She was a top 10 semifinalist in that pageant, which was won by Ninibeth Leal of Venezuela.
