Wannabe models across the country surrendered photos of themselves in bikinis, lingerie and less in the annual Maxim Magazine Hometown Hottie contest.
Maxin Editor-in-chief Dan Bova told FOX411’s In the Zone that every year Maxim sets out the call that they’re looking to find the most beautiful girl next door in America and every year thousands of thousands of women offered their photos. He went on saying that they cut it down to the top 1,000, and it goes online, and it becomes a voting thing where Maxim readers can go in and pick their favorite. They chopped it from a thousand down to a hundred to the top 10, and eventually down to number one. And the winner is…
Dessie Mitcheson from Apollo, Pennslyvania is Maxim’s Hometown Hottie 2013!
Mitcheson could not control her excitement when Maxim came to her door to announce the great news with cameras in tow. Mitcheson told Maxim that she wasn’t expecting it at all. It was awesome, she said it on euphoria. As an aspiring model, this was Mitcheson’s number one goal to become a Maxim Hometown Hottie.
The euphoric gal said that she knew a lot of the girls who had done it in the past, and Maxim has always been something that she had always wanted to do since she started modeling about 2 ½ years ago. So by the moment she turned 21, she said she’s entering, who knows what’s gonna happen, but she’s doing it.
It was no easy task picking the Hometown Hottie winner. What made her stick out? It was Mitcheson’s humble roots, Bova said. The great thing about Dessie is she really is a small town girl, Bova said. They flew to Pittsburgh and drove through the country, over hills, through the valleys and eventually came to this tiny, extremely cute town called Apollo in the midst of Pennsylvania, Bova said.
To fulfill her duties as the Hometown Hotties Winner, Mitcheson says she can't wait and she'll have one of the best years of her life if Maxim has anything to do with it. At the Super Bowl party, the small town girl will be doing the red carpet…our Hot 100 party, Bova said. Mitcheson will be representing them at all the big events they do.
