But Sunday night’s Miss D.C. pageant lacked that sort of drama. Recent American University graduate Jennifer Corey was crowned Miss D.C. 2009, and her win probably wasn’t a shock to anyone in attendance at the Lincoln Theatre. Before the announcement of the new title-holder, Corey won the top award for outstanding talent, bathing suit competition and evening gown.
The tall, thin blonde will compete for the title of Miss America in January. She has big shoes to fill after last year’s Miss D.C., Kate Marie Grinold (another tall, thin blonde) finished in the top 10.
