Nothing to do Saturday night? Take your remote, turn it to FX at 10 p.m. and watch the 2012 Hooters Miss International competition. Thank us later. Fort Lauderdale native Lindsey Way, Miss International 2011, will give up her crown to another waitress turned model with aspirations of traveling the world as Miss Hooters. Dreams do come true, ladies. One minute you’re serving wings to fat dudes, the next minute you’re dating Wes Welker.
Miss Hooters International 2005, Anna Burns, will be marrying Welker this weekend so she’ll be missing the competition. But this is exactly the kind of lifestyle the 2012 winner should expect. Carrying a tray of Jager Bombs can be over by late Saturday.
Need a feel good story to suck you into the pageant coverage? How about the story of one waitress, Tiffany Marie Saint, being inspired by a little girl with cancer.
Even though Alabama 4-year old Brynn had no hair, an external bladder and was in remission from cancer, when she visited Saint’s Hooters restaurant in Humble in 2010, the waitress was blown away by Brynn’s positive outlook and infectious smile.
It was through this little girl that Saint found the courage to follow her dreams and compete against 18,000 Hooters waitresses to make the top 10 for the 16th annual Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant in Miami June 23.
“Brynn changed my life. After they visited my restaurant, I knew I had to contact them, so I tracked them down on Facebook. Her mom gave me the approval to contact Brynn and forge ahead with a friendship,” Saint said in a phone interview.
Of course that’s enough for us to root for Saint and watch 101 Hooters Girl contestants battle it out to win $50,000 and be crowned Miss Hooters International 2012.
At least set the DVR.
