Beer babe bat­tle hots up

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By AN­DREA O’NEIL

Can­nons Creek’s Miss Tui con­tender has made it into the com­pe­ti­tion’s final eight, the only Welling­ton con­tes­tant to make the grade.

Twenty- year- old Rose­mary Brunt beat out a hun­dred hope­fuls to the fi­nals, along­side young women from Manawatu, Dunedin, Christchurch and Taranaki.

‘‘ I was so stoked,’’ she said of find­ing out she was a fi­nal­ist.

Rose­mary has a huge sup­port base, ty­ing with fel­low fi­nal­ist, Dunedin’s Ju­lia Hope, for most votes, with more than 500.

But her fans will be tested over the next fort­night, as Tui has wiped all votes, giv­ing fi­nal­ists a level play­ing ground.

‘‘Now pretty much any­one has a chance of win­ning,’’ Rose­mary says.

Rose­mary needs daily votes from each of her fans on the Tui web­site – the more clicks the bet­ter.

‘‘I hope I win – it’s just all about the votes now.’’

The win­ner of Miss Tui 2012 gets $2000 cash and a year’s sup­ply of beer – 366 bot­tles since it’s a leap year.

Two video chal­lenges lie be­tween the con­tes­tants and the booty. This week’s chal­lenge is ti­tled Burn­ing Ears, where con­tes­tants show off how much sup­port they have. Rose­mary is hop­ing to rope some Hur­ri­canes play­ers into her video and have a bill­board pro­mot­ing her quest put up on Bro­ken Hill Rd.

The Miss Tui or­gan­is­ers are im­pressed with her en­thu­si­asm, she says.

‘‘They said they’re de­lighted to have me in the fi­nals since I’d put so much ef­fort in – they said I’d gone hard, man!’’

Miss Brunt has promised to throw a huge party for her fans if she wins. The win­ner will be an­nounced on May 30.
