“Being crowned Miss Hooters International is both a dream come true and an honor for me,” said Laiken. “All of us girls share a common thread — a passion for serving our Hooters guests. I can honestly say each one of us gave it our all during the pageant.”
A seven-person panel of judges that included NASCAR driver chase Elliott, UFC light heavyweight fighter Ovince Saint Preux and Vanderpump Rules babe Brittany Cartwright gave Baumgartner top marks for her responses to interview questions, personality, contributions to the company, and, of course, swimsuit attire.
