Pageants

Miss Teen USA 1996

Woods won the Miss Houston Teen USA title in 1995, then competed in Miss Texas Teen USA 1996, winning the title. She represented Texas in the 1996 Miss Teen USA pageant broadcast live from Las Cruces, New Mexico on August 1996, and became the first woman from her state to win the Miss Teen USA title.

As Miss Teen USA, Woods lived with the Miss Universe and Miss USA titleholders, Alicia Machado, Miss Universe 1996, of Venezuela, and Ali Landry, Miss USA 1996, of Louisiana.

She also reigned alongside Brook Lee, who briefly held the title of Miss USA 1997 before winning the 1997 Miss Universe pageant; and Miss Teen USA 1989 and 1st runner-up to Miss USA 1997, Brandi Sherwood, who succeeded Lee as Miss USA.

During her reign, Woods traveled extensively throughout the United States and made appearances for charity, giving up her title in August 1997, when she crowned Shelly Moore of Tennessee as Miss Teen USA 1997 in her home state, Texas.

Miss Texas USA 2002

In 2001, Woods returned to pageantry and competed in the 2002 Miss Texas USA pageant as Miss Central Texas. She was one of six former Miss Texas Teen USA titleholders to participate in the event. Woods won the swimsuit, interview and Miss Photogenic awards, but the jury refused to give her the title and she only placed third runner-up. This was the first time that a former Miss Teen USA titleholder did not win a Miss USA state pageant on their first try. Woods' successor to the Miss Texas Teen USA title, Andria Mullins, also lost and placed second runner-up to eventual winner, Miss Dallas Fort Worth, Kasi Kelly, who was not even a former Miss Texas Teen USA.

Miss Texas USA 2003

The following year, Woods tried and won the Miss Houston USA title, gaining the right to compete at Miss Texas USA 2003. Once again, the judges refused to crown her and she only placed as one of the semifinalists alongside Mullins, who competed again as well and was not crowned either. This time Woods' predecessor to the Miss Texas Teen USA crown, Mandy Jeffreys, matched Woods' 2002 placement as third runner-up, only to lose to Nicole O'Brian, Miss Texas Teen USA 2000, who could not capture the Miss Teen USA 2000 or Miss USA 2003 crowns.

Miss Texas USA 2004

Woods competed for the third time in Miss Texas USA 2004, and again was only allowed to place in the semifinals. This was her last attempt at the title, because of age restrictions imposed on contestants.

Woods would represent the changing times, where none of the former Miss Teen USA titleholders would be allowed to win a Miss USA state crown. Jamie Solinger of Iowa (3rd runner-up to Mrs. America 2005) and Shauna Gambill of California (first runner-up to Miss USA 1998 and Top 10 at Miss World 1998) would be the last in 1998.

Television

Acting

Woods played Rowena in the TV series The New Adventures of Robin Hood in the late 1990s. She also had guest appearances on Malibu, CA (1998) and USA High (1998).

The Amazing Race

Woods appeared with her then boyfriend Colin Guinn on The Amazing Race 5, competing alongside two other beauty pageant contestants: O'Brian and Erika Shay, who was Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA in 1995.

Woods and her partner finished the race second out of a group of eleven. A tire blowout experienced in Dallas, Texas by Colin and Christie's limousine contributed to their loss.

Woods and Guinn were also expecting to be in the All-Star edition of the amazing race; however, Woods was expecting the couple's first child and therefore could not participate.
