DALLAS — Watch out Hooters – you’ve got some sizable competition!
“Hey guys, I’m Monica and I’m representing Twin Peaks at Fossil Creek,” one competitor said.
Yes, the lovely ladies from the North Texas-based chain showed off their best assets in their quest for the crown for Miss Twin Peaks 2014 All-Star Show. The competition was held Wednesday at Gilley’s South Side Ballroom in Dallas.
“It’s awesome! It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me,” spectator Gabe White said.
The contestants were judged on a set of criteria: appearance, energy, and of course personality.
“Uh, yeah they gotta be somewhat smart. If not, the looks aren’t everything,” White said.
C’mon, guys! This isn’t just another endless parade of titillating pageant flesh. These competitions are big business; don’t think these bejeweled bikinis come cheap.
According to the website, Statistic Brain, about 2.5-million girls compete in about 100,000 pageants every year in the U.S. On average, those girls will sink no less than $1,000 on every contest they enter.
That would but a lot of drinks at Twin Peaks!
But, in the end, it’s just a fun and festive experience, right?
“All the girls from all the Twin Peaks come here, and everybody gets to see how hot everybody is,” spectator Casaundra Regal said.
Well, cheers to this year’s winner — Whitney of Twin Peaks De Zavala in San Antonio. Whitney won $5,000 and she will be included in the 2015 Twin Peaks Calendar.
Hey, they can’t all win. Wonder if one girl’s “peaks” is another girl’s valley?
