After another round of thousands of votes and one incredibly close race in the ladies' division, it's time to crown the 96X + Open Minds Hottest Bartenders in East Texas.

Many congratulations to Tyler of TGI Friday's in Tyler and Emily of Neon Country in Jacksonville, the first-ever winners of the 96X Hottest Bartender in East Texas Contest.

In the guys' division, Tyler took the lead earlier this week and cruised to a big win, but the girls' race was quite a sight.

Emily and Brittini from TGI Friday's were neck-and-neck all week, often taking the lead from each other several times per day. But when it was all said and done, Emily took away the Friday's sweep.

For their victories, Tyler and Emily will receive $300 in cash and $300 to Open Minds, in addition to owning the crown of being the Hottest Bartenders in East Texas.

Congrats to both, and 96X wants to thank all of the bartenders who participated in our first-ever contest like this. It was incredibly successful thanks to you and everyone who voted. We can't wait to do it again!
