Wolfram Alpha says 9 so I'm going with that.

Since I am a world champion thread hijacker, I'll ask the gathered group to give the next number in this series and explain their guess. 1,1,1,2,1 _____ Bob PEMDAS! Nuff Said If you are bored, try these math problems. Unsolved Problems -- from Wolfram MathWorld Bob
I'm guessing the answer is 3

The sequence is

1,1

1,2

1,3

1,4

1,5

and so on ...
