Show­girl named

Central and North Burnett Times - - BIGGENDEN SHOW -

SA­MAN­THA Olsen was over­whelmed and ex­cited af­ter she was an­nounced Biggen­den Show­girl 2015 on Satur­day.

Along with Sa­man­tha, two other young women - Fiona Gethings (run­ner-up) and Cooper-Anne Fother­ing­ham (Miss Per­son­al­ity) fronted the judges be­fore be­ing asked a num­ber of ques­tions by MC Rob­bie Radel.

Spon­sored by the Biggen­den Apex Club, the 19-year-old win­ner said Biggen­den was such a beau­ti­ful place but it’s not well-known.

“It needs ad­ver­tis­ing,” she said.

Help­ing sash the win­ner, Queens­land Miss Show­girl 2014 and Miss Tee­bar 2014 So­phie Hughes said her show­girl ex­pe­ri­ence was an ab­so­lute whirl­wind.

“To think that less than 12 months ago I was sit­ting ex­actly where all the girls are to­day, ner­vously wait­ing,” she said.

“It has been a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I’ve met so many fab­u­lous and in­ter­est­ing peo­ple from all over Queens­land and have loved ev­ery minute of it.”

So­phie said while some com­mu­ni­ties strug­gle to get en­trants, it was just won­der­ful to see so many in­volved at Biggen­den.

Biggen­den Miss Show­girl 2014 Taliah Faint said she had gained more con­fi­dence dur­ing her year.

“I have also de­vel­oped more of an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the show com­mit­tee and its hard work,” she said.

Judge Kerry Dunn de­scribed the young women as “qual­ity young Aus­tralians”. All three will be heav­ily in­volved with the Biggen­den Show on May 16-17, pre­sent­ing tro­phies and sashes, and sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets.
