Amanda Matheny is this years Miss Gay Utah, but that is just one more name she goes by. Her name is Rhapsodi when she is off having amazing adventures as a mermaid, Snappy when she is hanging out with her best friends, or her childhood name as Tabasco, she is known by many other names. This innocent looking country girl is definitely a free spirit and wild child, you can usually find her by her laugh or a streak of red hair wizzing by at the Renaissance faires or by the trail of glitter that seems to follow her wherever she goes. Being with her  you will never be bored or have a dull moment, because she has a story, a joke or a fun fact about damn near everything. But look out, this little stick of dynomite packs a punch.
