Give Maxine a ‘Hoot’

Miss Hooters SA prepares to jet off to Las Vegas.

THE winner of the Miss Hooters SA Swimsuit pageant 2014, Maxine Beigley, is preparing herself for the adventure of a lifetime as she gets ready to jet off to Las Vegas to take part in the Miss Hooters World pageant. The stunning, down-to-earth Hooters girl from Hooters on the Rocks in Umhlanga was crowned on 12 April at Hooters Emperor’s Palace despite stiff competition from 17 other gorgeous contenders hailing from around the country.

The 22-year-old who originally hails from Johannesburg and currently resides in Durban is more than just a pretty face having recently completed a qualification in Interior Architecture. Beigley’s career with Hooters SA started in 2010, making her one of the very first Hooters Girls in the country. She said she was excited to represent South Africa in Las Vegas later this year, despite her initial surprise at winning the Miss Hooters SA title.

“I honestly did not expect to become Miss Hooters SA. I was the last Hooters Girl to enter so winning was the furthest thing from my mind. Now I am so excited to head over to Las Vegas, I am counting down the days! I just love experiencing new places and meeting new people. It has been so exciting planning my outfits for the various events and competitions and I am also really looking forward to meeting other Hooters Girls from around the world,” Beigley said.

Preparation for the Miss Hooters World pageant has been quite rigorous with Beigley following a strict training regime and healthy eating plan. The pageant requires her to strut her stuff in swimwear, evening wear and a hometown inspired outfit. A proud Durbanite, Beigley chose to source most of her outfits locally and is having her dresses made by Durban-based designer Shanelle Cindy Botha. To make sure her hometown inspired outfit is as authentic as possible she is also supporting some local vendors from the area.

“I am so proud to be a South African and I am also very proud to be from the beautiful province of KwaZulu-Natal so I have decided to keep things as local as possible. I also really wanted to support the vendors on the Durban beachfront – they really know how to add some Durban flavour to an outfit so I am having the bodice of my hometown-inspired outfit made by them,” says Beigley.According to Gordon Jestin, COO of Hooters SA, the Hooters SA family is very proud of this year’s candidate. “We are all 100 per cent behind Maxine and we are confident that she will do a wonderful job of representing Hooters SA in Las Vegas,” says Jestin.
