Alexis Gabrielle Sherrington returned to Chicago this past week to try and win the Miss Continental crown, after previous unsuccessful bids, which may have made her victory that much sweeter Sunday night at the jam-packed Vic Theatre. Sherrington came in first among a very tough field of contestants from across the country, and some from other countries.

First runner-up was Fontasia L'Amour, Miss Pacific Coast Continental, and second runner-up was Tiffani Hunter, Miss Heart of America Continental. Sherrington is Miss South Carolina Continental.

Mokha Montrese, last year's winner, was treated to a lengthy tribute from her fans, and newly crowned Mr. Continental P. Alexander, who was his title Saturday night at the Park West, performed a live song for the enthralled crowd.

Past winners including Candis Cayne entertained the crowd during breaks in the contest, which featured swimwear, evening gown, talent and question/answer sections. The talent portion had some amazing numbers from all of the final 12 contestants.

Miss Continental CEO Jim Flint, owner of the Baton, was the emcee, and said he was proud how far the event has come over the years. Nikki Adams and Tajma Hall were fabulous as co-emcees.
