Inspired by 2008 finalist, Brooke Weisbender, I decided to enter in Maxim Magazine’s 2014 Hometown Hottie competition. Each year Maxim receives 10,000+ entries for the next Hometown Hottie. I was lucky enough to make the first cut of 1,00o women chosen for a 5 week voting period. Each week there was 200 new girls up for voting. Through the support of my amazing fans, friends, and family I became a semi-finalist in the Top 100! Before I could be chosen for the Top 100, I had one week to submit a video telling everyone a little about myself. One week to put a video together that is supposed to take you to the final Top 10, no pressure. It was a crazy week trying to get my video together and getting ready to go on vacation at the same time, talk about stressful. Luckily I had a great team to help me throw my video together. I was up till 4 am shooting at the One World Media studio, getting some behind the scenes footage. Sadly, the photos from the shoot accidentally got deleted off the memory card before editing and are gone forever! I have to admit I was pretty excited to see the pictures from the shoot, but luckily we got the video footage which was the most important part. Voting to choose the Final Top 10 goes from July 29th to August 26th. You can vote once a day from each electronic device. The Top 10 will then fly out to California to shoot with Maxim! Maxim will film behind the scenes to create a whole new video for the next voting round. Please help me make it to the Top 10 by voting and sharing the link with your friends encouraging them to vote. Regardless if I make the next round, I already feel like a winner. By being in the Top 100 I am being published in the September 2013 issue of Maxim magazine, so don’t forget to pick up your copy once it hits news stands! I feel honored to be considered one of ‘Americas 100 Hottest Girls Next Door’. I would just like to thank Maxim for this incredible opportunity and all my amazing supporters for helping me get this far. I can’t wait to see where this will take me.
