After winning Miss Photogenic in 2012, local Hooters Girl Jamie Gunnels is returning to the Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant this year.

Gunnels, who works at the chain's Columbus restaurant, is among the contestants competing in the June 27 pageant.

Voting is under way for a "Miss Social" prize, which will be awarded to the contestant who secures the most votes online. June 24 is the last day to vote online.

"The contestant with the most social media activity will win $2,000 and automatically be entered into the finals of the pageant alongside the Top 10," the Hooters website explains.

You can vote for Gunnels here.

To find her photo on the voting website, scroll down to "Southeast." Gunnels is the fifth contestant in the Southeast group.

Here's Gunnels' online bio for the pageant:

Beauty, brains and a bleeding heart. Most guys hope their girl has one of these; this Georgia peach has all three. Jamie has a degree in marketing and is Hooters 2012 Miss Photogenic. Her beauty is only surpassed by her compassion. Just ask anyone about her and the word “sweet” is bound to come up.

Hooters restaurants will air the pageant at 9 p.m. EST on June 27.
