|The winner, Anna Burns, 23, the December Hooters calendar girl, was a feast for the eyes. But there were a few moist eyes in the room, too. Because she represents a town that is in the thoughts of many -- Fayetteville, N.C., a military community that has sent thousands of men and women to war. Many a customer who goes out the door may soon be facing danger. But they leave with good memories.|
Ms. Burns will soon be in the way of many cameras. In addition to her huge prize package, she gets to represent Hooters for a year. But if she ever looks more lovely than on the night when PNB photographer Paul Fong captured her in her new crown, it will really be something. And we'll tell you all about it.
Sarah Coggin, Miss Southwest, who was on the cover of the 2005 Hooters Calendar, was the first runner-up. Ambar Martinez, who represented Venezuela, was the second runner-up, and the third runner-up was Stacie Burns, Miss San Antonio. Beverly Mullins, representing Tampa, was the fourth runner-up. The Ms. Congeniality award, voted for by the contestants themselves, was won by Megan Edinger of Statesville, N.C., and the Ms. Photogenic went to Kami Payne of Rome, Ga.
