Miss VA Wins Miss America

Local viewers of the Miss America pageant on TLC Saturday night followed two DC-metro area girls battle their way to the top – and one eventually win!

Both Miss DC, Jen Corey and Miss VA, Caressa Cameron (Fredericksburg) finished in the top ten, with Cameron continuing all the way to the crown.

Cameron wowed the audience with her rendition of “Listen” from the Dreamgirls’ soundtrack and her standout canary gown, sealing the deal with the answer to her onstage question relating to childhood obesity:

“We need to get our kids back outside, playing with sticks in the street like I did when I was little…Expand your mind, go outside and get to see what this world is like.”
