12 unusual virtual halls of fame
What follows are some of the more unusual ones I’ve come across.

The Hooters restaurant chain is well known for its attractive waitresses and bar maids. So Hooters decided to create a hall of fame to honor its hottest Hooters Girls.
“Since the first Hooters opened in Clearwater, Florida, in 1983 literally hundreds of thousands of woman have become Hooters Girls,” the website says. “This Hall of Fame was created in 2008 during the celebration of Hooters 25th Anniversary to recognize the elite of that sorority.”
