"I was bartending, and they used to have casting calls at our Hooters," she told Fox News Digital in October 2023. "I wasn't supposed to even be there. One of my girls got sick, so I filled in. I was just being my quirky self, and the whole team just kept coming up to me and asking me all of these questions."

She added, "And right before I ended my shift, a gentleman named Damian asked to take a picture. I said, 'You want to take a photo with a Hooters girl?' And he said, 'No, we want to take a photo of just you.' Damian said, 'I'm casting for 'The Real World' and I think you would be the perfect candidate.'"

In October 2023, Averey's dream came true when she was named the centerfold for the 2024 Hooters calendar.

"I never thought that I would ever be a centerfold," she told Fox News Digital. "It feels amazing to know that Hooters recognizes me and values me… Hooters has always been such a blessing for me. But to be told that I would be a centerfold? Honestly, I was shocked. I was shaking. I didn't really know what to do. I thought it was a dream. There's just no way."

Reflecting, she confessed, "I never thought that I was good enough to be a centerfold. And there's so many cool Hooters girls out there with amazing stories. We're so much more than the orange shorts."

Averey also showcased her talent at the Miss Hooters International Pageant, securing the runner-up position in 2022.
