There may be some hot times on St. Thomas and St. John in the next few days, and not just because the temperatures are in the mid-80's.
The Hooters restaurant chain is bringing "16 of the most gorgeous Hooters girls from around the world" to compete in a TV taping to find the Hooters Dream Girl.
They'll be doing some modeling assignments, "as well as participating in various competitive events around the islands," according to a news release.
It could mean they'll visit St. John. (Wouldn't be the first time. See our story from 2007 at http://barnako.typepad.com/news_of_st_john_usvi/2007/03/hooters_does_st.html.
Meanwhile, a rumor that another reality TV show will use the island as a backdrop has ginned up reaction at the Virgin-Islands-On-Line forum.
"Lock the doors! The tacky invasion is about to start," said one correspondent on hearing that this weekend the Real Housewives of New York show may be arriving. While there's no official confirmation from the producers, that hasn't stopped people from commenting.
Iowaguy said, "I'm trying to envision the Real Housewives at Larry's Landing or the Beach Bar–would love to be there." St. John Ruth pointed out that the weather can be a factor, saying "If they were here today it will be pretty interesting. I think we had a monsoon this morning and then a pretty dreary day. Not exactly bikini weather."

I love the hooters idea, but the housewives? Keep STJ clean and natural! No Housewives Reality Trash!
We already have a Hooters here and it’s called: Woody’s!
Who do these Hooters hussies think they are trying to muscle in on our local sleaze?
Also, how is it that Hooters Girls always manage to look so shiny, plastic and orange? Do they rub some special Hooters brand tanning lotion on their skin to get that effect, or is it just an optical illusion created by the shorts and the stockings?
Either way, even my husband finds it thoroughly unappealing. And he’s never been one to hesitate when it comes to admiring the ladies.
