Townsquare Media held The first ever Budweiser Gallatin Valley Girl Contest last night. After six weeks of auditions, at various Bars around the Valley, The Stage was finally set for last nights Finals at Mixers in Downtown Bozeman. The Crowd was pumped with several patrons showing up hours early. By show time the bar was packed, and everyone was on their feet trying to catch a glimpse of the 15 finalist on stage.

With Round 1, we got to see all of the girls looking stunning in their Cocktail Dress attire. In Round 2, we held a mock photo shoot with the girls posing on our set in their swimsuits. These Girls really knew how to work it, and got the crowd going. In the Final Round of the night, the girls came out in their Western Attire wearing Tank Tops, Jean Shorts, Boots, and Cowgirl Hats. Each looking like a true Gallatin Valley Girl.

After the 3rd and Final Round, the Judges handed in their score cards. The girls and crowd waited in anticipation as we summed the online votes along with the judges score. After 30 minutes of nail biting, the results were in. All of the finalists were brought back on the stage anxious for the results. Chadwick announced the TOP 3 Finalist for the 2012 Gallatin Valley Girl. First, Jennifer Kinville; Second, Kate Fontes; And Third, Amanda Caldwell.  All three remained on the stage  hugging each other as they waited nervously to hear who would be the first ever Gallatin Valley Girl.

The crowd was going crazy yelling and screaming for their favorites. Chadwick takes the mic, pauses, and a quietness comes over the hostile crowd…… "AND THE WINNER IS………. AMANDA CALDWELL!" The crowd went will and debauchery ensued.
