The Redskins players weren’t the only ones busy winning on Sunday night, as Redskins Cheerleader Monique Thompkins was announced as the winner of the 2012 Miss DC USA pageant. She was specially recognized as the Top Swim Suit and Top Evening Gown Awards in the annual competition.
For those of you with a Redskins Cheerleader calendar, you might know her better as Miss November 2012.
For video of the victorious pageant queen, we turn to kstreetkate.net, who interviewed Monique after her victory:
Monique is currently in the middle of her second season as a Redskins Cheerleader, after having grown up in Washington as a huge Redskins fan. When she’s not entertaining Redskins Nation on the sidelines at FedExField, she works for the Department of Health and Human Services.
And when she’s not doing that, she’s cuddled up on her couch, watching movies and eating mango sorbet.
That would be reason enough to give her my vote for Miss DC USA.
If Monique’s radiance wasn’t enough at the Miss DC USA pageant, she brought along a few of her friends for help. You might recognize them better with pom-poms:
From here, Monique will go on to compete in the Miss USA pageant in June 2012. On behalf of Redskins Nation and your biggest fans, congratulations Monique!
