The Hunt Is On: And the Winner Is…

For the month of May we got you all hunting the internet for a chance to win a 2 night trip to Miami Beach for you and three friends to stay at the Betsy – South Beach Hotel. After all the riddles, all the searching, and all the entries, we’ve finally picked the winner, Celby Richoux!

She’s probably just one of their models as she looks just like one.
It would’ve been nice if they chose a more average, non-modelesque girl

i actually know Celby from college and I can assure you she is a completely normal girl, not a free people model.
