Laiken Baumgartner is the newly crowned 2018 Miss Hooters International. 

The sexy southern belle from Douglasville, Georgia, earned top honors among a pool of 80 other Hooters Girls competing at the sports bar and restaurant chain’s 22nd annual pageant. 

The 20-year-old beauty received a $30,000 prize and became the brand’s newest ambassador. Check out all top ten finalists below: 

“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.

Online voters elected Hailey Slobodzian—one of our top 20 picks for the title—as Miss Fan Favorite.
