Party at my place!
A girl from Porirua can’t win Miss Tui 2012 –
Cannons Creek woman Rosemary Brunt is a frontrunner in the annual ‘‘Miss Tui’’ competition run by Mangatainoka’s iconic brewery. Twenty-year-old Rosemary is throwing herself into the competition, going above and beyond requirements of weekly challenges set by Tui for its contestants. She beat 120 competitors earlier this month with her match report on a Super 15 rugby game. Rosemary covered herself with Tui memorabilia and attended a game, interviewing spectators and players in a video posted on Youtube.
‘‘I was nervous but I actually got into it and had fun,’’ she says. ‘‘I actually do reckon I can win because I have so many big ideas. I feel like I’m not just answering the question, I’m going beyond it. ‘‘I’m giving it my all.’’ The 1.88 metre (6’2’’) beauty puts her success down to being a people person and a tomboy.
‘‘With Tui it’s a blokes’ beer and you need a chick who can just go and chat with the guys.’’
Her male fans should be on guard however – Rosemary’s next challenge is to prank her male friends, and it’s certain to be a well-executed trick.
Rosemary entered Miss Tui at the last minute when a friend suggested she go for it.
‘‘My mate told me about it and at first I was like ‘oh, nah’ but it just stayed on my mind the whole day. ‘‘Why not? You only live once.’’ At first she was motivated by the prize – $2500 and 366 bottles of beer – but now Rosemary’s focus is giving back to her supporters.
Tui will pick its Miss Tui on May 30 based on which contestant has the most fans. Within two days of entering Rosemary had more than 100 supporters, way ahead of her fellow competitors, she says.
If she wins she will donate her prize beer and some of her cash prize to celebrating with her fans.
‘‘I’m gonna have a big as party for everyone who had faith in me. I want to meet them all.’’
