A Lakeland fitness model has won the 2014 Miss Hooters International title.

25-year-old Janet Layug outshone other Hooters Girls from around the world earlier this month at the 18th Annual Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant, held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Layug has worked for Hooters for seven years, most recently at her hometown restaurant, Hooters of North Lakeland.

Layug wins a $30,000 cash prize, features in "Hooters Magazine" and the Hooters Calendar as well as a chance to appear in national television commercials and Hooters marketing initiatives.

"After competing alongside so many beautiful, charismatic and talented women, earning the 2014 Miss Hooters International crown is an absolute honor," Layug said in a press release. "It's unreal. I feel like I'm in a dream right now and don't want to wake up."
