The 2019 Miss Hooters International Pageant is tonight, and 80 women selected from around the world will be competing for the title and its prizes, including $30,000. The women are all Hooters employees, and many have been featured by Hooters in the past; independent of their commitment to the restaurant food chain, the contestants bring diverse interests and backgrounds to the pageant.
Although voting is closed to select your “Fan Favorites,” the names, photos, and hometowns of all 80 women are available on Hooters’ voting page. Get to know all of the contestants by clicking here.
These are some of the beautiful and accomplished women competing in the 2019 Miss Hooters International Pageant:
Briana Smith (Fort Lauderdale, FL)
Briana is Miss February in the Hooters calendar this year and is studying to become a mortician. When asked by the Sun-Sentinel about what it means to be a woman going into a profession that was previously male-dominated, she said “I think it will be very empowering. That’s really a great thing that I hope I’m able to do, doing mortuary science and, if I do win Miss Hooters International, to pass along to future generations. Little girls, seeing women doing all sorts of jobs, will believe that they can do anything that they put their mind to.”
