Alexa Brielle Jones, 17, was crowned Miss Orange County Teen Regional 2012 at a sold out Saturday night pageant during what was reported to be the largest number of contestants, a total of 43 teens.  The amazing pageant was held at the beautiful Huntington Beach Historic Auditorium in Huntington Beach, California. Alexa, a 17 year old College Freshman from California State University, San Marcos was crowned after an intense round of interview from the top celebrity judges, giving Alexa the Best Interview Award at the conclusion of the event.  During the final moments before the announcement of the winner's name, there were two young ladies neck to neck in the competition, but Alexa rose above the other 41 contenders for what to be one of the highest and most amazing teen title in Orange County.

Alexa is a communications major from San Marcos, California. After graduating early from high school, Alexa moved out on her own to conquer the world and pursue her dreams of being a model, a communication student and a pageant titleholder.  She enjoys reading,  is passionate about volunteering, shopping and working out at the gym.
She has been recognized for her outstanding leadership and academic achievement as the recipient of multiple scholarship awards.  In addition she has earned the President Volunteer Service Gold Award for her work with community and charitable organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Children’s Hospital and Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Also, she was a 4 year member and Captain of the Varsity Cheer team at Ramona High School.

Alexa was selected from the 43 teen contestants for the Best Interview Award  as well as being crowned the new Miss Orange County Teen Regional 2012 at the pageant held on August 6, 2011 in Huntington Beach.  She is excited to continue her community service and represent Orange County.

The pageant’s co-hosts were Alexis Bellino, from Bravo's The Real Housewife of Orange County and Ryan Basford of E! Chelsea Lately Show. Contestants competed in three categories: Interview, Evening Gown and Swimsuit. The contestants were narrowed from 43 to 16 semi-finalists to 10 semi-finalist and finally to 5 contestants.  Each of the finalists were asked individual final questions, which is then added to their previous scores. Throughout the show, audience members were entertained by Alexis Bellino's Fashion Show, designed by Tala Sheyn and the wonderful dancers from the Clifton Dance Project.

The pageant was estimated to have reached approximately 90 cities with a variety of contestants, thanks to the TV telecast of the pageant from What's Up Orange County.

During the two hour event, the contestants along with Executive Director of Miss Orange County Regional, Giselle Boone, welcomed on stage and presented our OC Breast Cancer Fund Recipient with a check to Cyndee Ray, 29, who has been battling breast cancer. With our donation, she will be able to continue the process of her recovery and to show how much we truly care for her.
