So tonight we crown a new Rock Girl. Tonight one of these amazing ladies is granted the awesome gift and awesome responsibility of not only representing the greatest rock station in North America, but the city of Ft. Wayne itself. There are accolades and rewards that go with this title. The young lady in question won’t quite be a kept woman, but she’ll have a furnished apartment, a new car, and tickets to every major event in the city for a year. But there will also be responsibilities. This person will be a role model. Not just to young girls who aspire to become models and actresses, but to the rest of us. A great number of gals that entered the contest this year did so because they saw how much fun the first two Rock Girls had. We certainly hope that trend continues.
I have no idea who’s going to win. Last year, I figured it was going to be between three of the final ten entrants. I was right, and Megan did such a great job that there aren’t two big shoes to fill (although she literally does have kinda big feet…she’s almost as tall as me flat-footed. Taller in heels!) there’s going to be a crater. A massive void that one spunky, gorgeous young woman has to try and fill. And I think they will. I think that of the remaining Rock Girl hopefuls, any number of them can pick up the torch and run with it. And that’s exciting to me.
So thanks to ALL of the ladies in this year’s contest. It’s been a blast just getting to know you all. And I know that win or lose, you’ve had fun, too. Keep at it. You’re all wonderfully sexy and smart, and I think the city of Ft. Wayne should be proud at the quantity and quality of young women we have here.
