CYBERSPACE—The 2012 Miss Pole Champ USA competition started out with a bang as it crowned its first two regional winners. Tera Dega won the Northeast Regional held at Xpertease in New York, while Cole took the Midwest Regional at PT's Showclub in Indianapolis, IN. Both Tera and Cole move on to the National Finals to be held at The Pink Pony in Tampa, FL on Saturday, March 10th.
"I'm so happy to have the return of Northeast winner Tera Dega—she's always so much fun to watch!" exclaimed event coordinator Nakita Kash. "I am also very impressed with the Midwest winner Cole. She beat some really tough competition, so she will be an amazing competitor at nationals. I can't wait to see how this week unfolds as we have some previous regional winners coming to defend their titles. It will be a great show!"
World-renowned pole dancing champion Nakita Kash has wowed audiences around the United States and was a contestant on NBC's America's Got Talent. This 30-time title-holder now has her next big competition: One to find her successor.
"I have wanted to do something like this for a long time. In between gigs I went to many competitions over the last few years as a judge, assistant and/or coordinator." Nakita explained. "I had competed so many times that I already knew what worked and didn't work on the competitors end, but I wanted to get my hands dirty behind the scenes to insure that I was making the right decisions in my competition process. With those experiences I put together the Miss Pole Champ USA format."
Up next are the North and South Regionals. On Wednesday, January 25th, The Oval Office in Green Bay, WI will host the North Regional and The Emperors Club in West Palm Beach, FL is the site of the South Regional to be held on Saturday, January 28th.
Other regional competitions include: Southwest Regional at Tens Showclub in Tucson, AZ on February 7; West Regional at Babes Cabaret in Las Vegas, NV on February 9; Northwest Regional at Club SinRock in Renton, WA on February 12; East Regional at Christine's Cabaret in Philadelphia, PA on February 17; and Southeast Regional at the Trophy Club in Greenville, SC on February 23.
