Caressa Cameron, who was crowned Miss Arlington 2009 and then Miss Virginia 2009, was crowned Miss America 2010 on Saturday’s nationally-televised pageant. Cameron, a Fredericksburg, Va. native, wins a $50,000 and will now embark on a national publicity tour.
Cameron’s first appearance was on Live! with Regis and Kelly this morning. She will appear on entertainment show EXTRA tonight. The show airs locally at 2:00 AM on ABC 7 (WJLA).
Although Cameron’s media duties will keep her in New York for now, expect a homecoming for the beauty queen no later than April. Traditionally, Miss America winners participate in the National Cherry Blossom Festival parade.
