Leah Fennelly speaks in an exclusive interview about her work at Hooters – and a downside to the job.
Florida (USA) – She always wanted to be a Hooters girl and has been doing the job for six years now. But there is one thing Leah Fennelly (23) hates Florida to this day: the creepy sayings of the male guests.
In an exclusive interview with DailyStar chatted the law student out of the box what she had to listen to so far. So be a cheap standard saying: “Are you on the menu?” Another sentence that men would throw at her head more often is: “I want my wings hot and naked like you.”
She would be fine with that though. But there is a clear limit. “I usually tend to laugh at it, unless it’s extremely disrespectful. If I’m being mistreated, which is very rare, I’ll bring in a manager to sort things out,” Leah said.
Nevertheless, she loves her job and the daily customer contact. After all, most customers are respectful and nice.

However, the 23-year-old wants to take a stand for herself and her colleagues.
The American explained: “The misconception that people have about women who work at Hooters is that we are stupid. I’ve heard that so many times – and it’s annoying.”
After all, she already has a bachelor’s degree in her pocket and is now in the second semester of her law studies. “We have a bartender who got her master’s degree – and a lot of girls who are working towards their nursing degrees in my shop.” Leah’s verdict: “Hooters girls are smart and beautiful!”
By the way, when it comes to beauty, the waitress has come up with something else. Leah will be taking part in the Miss Hooters International pageant. This is held once a year to crown a woman who will represent the brand for the duration of her “tenure”.
