The Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2010 (formerly known as Miss Exotic World) is Roxi Dlite of Windsor, Canada. The pageant was held at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend at the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 5.
Roxi Dlite was last year's first runner-up, and has been recognized as one of the world's top burlesque performers. This year's first runner-up is former Bay Area and current Los Angeles resident Kristina Nekyia, and the second runner-up is Nasty Canasta of Brooklyn.
Unlike last year when I was in Las Vegas, I'm getting the results secondhand from Twitter posts of the pageant's attendees, so I'll say these results are unofficial. If you'd like to see the Twitter posts for yourself, please go to twitter.com and search for "#bhof". The official results will probably be posted on the official Burlesque Hall of Fame site at burlesquehall.com or on their Facebook page sometime within the next few days.
Here are the results of this year's competition!
