Miss Hooters Colorado 2012!

1 of 50
Mckenzie Barentsen, first-place winner, who took home $1,000 and is eligible to compete in the 2012 Miss Hooters International Contest.
If regular beauty pageants are the equivalent of defrosted shrimp cocktail and Andre brand champagne, the Ms. Hooters Colorado competition is Bud Light and chicken wings. We dispatched photographer Jim Wills into the beer-and-chicken dinner of beauty pageants at Suite Two Hundred on Thursday, May 3, 2012. He brings back these photos from the LoDo soiree. The national competition is June 23 in -- where else? -- Miami, Florida.
