Congrats Caressa! Miss America 2010

Miss VA Caressa Cameron is now Miss America 2010. Way to go girl! Hats off to our pal Jen Corey for making the top 12 and performing brilliantly during the talent competition. You shined!

Miss California Kristy Cavinder was 1st runner up. I was a huge fan of our friend Jen from DC of course but also took a liking to Miss Hawaii who had a down to Earth, tomboy like attitude. Miss Arkansas was great too and really embodied that old glam Miss America look. Miss Puerto Rico was just flat out striking. Read more from The Examiner 

We’ll work on getting Caressa in for a studio interview at Channel 9.

 Maybe she’ll let me try on that crown… but we know how that turned out last time I had a chance. See below.
