Ryan Blaney is one lucky guy.
The 29-year-old Team Penske driver, who's the son of former NASCAR driver Dave Blaney and has almost 10 years experience in the NASCAR Cup Series, has been dating the drop-dead gorgeous Gianna Tulio for a couple years now. When she isn't cheering Ryan on during race day, Tulio is making serious bank as a Hooters model (depending on where you look, she has an estimated net worth that's between $1 and $2 million). Add that to Blaney's lucrative career as a NASCAR driver, and it's safe to say that he and Gianna make for quite the power couple.
Originally from Philadelphia, Gianna Tulio eventually moved to South Florida for her senior year of high school, and graduated with a business degree from Florida Atlantic University in 2020. During this time, she also worked at the Boca Raton Hooters, which is where she caught her first modeling break in 2019.
After a series of photoshoots in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the Bahamas, Tulio was pleasantly surprised with the news that she would be the coveted Miss June in the 2019 Hooters Calendar. Building off her promising momentum, Tulio was also featured in the 2020 calendar.
In July 2021, Tulio was crowned the 24th Miss Hooters International during the Miss Hooters Pageant in Orlando, beating out 19 other finalists. Also receiving the pageant's Miss Photogenic award that night, Tulio became a brand ambassador and spokeswoman for Hooters after her big win. Her responsibilities include appearing in ad and marketing campaigns, traveling to assist in Hooters openings, and attending other special outreach events. Most recently, Gianna was the cover girl for the 2022 Hooters Calendar. That same year was a big year for Gianna being in the spotlight, as she was also featured on the USA Network reality show Race for the Championship alongside Ryan.

Whether it's helping spread the word for Ryan's Ryan's Most Popular Driver campaign (he'd ultimately lose to Chase Elliott) or helping out with the Ryan Blaney Family Foundation, Ryan Blaney's girlfriend is no doubt a supportive partner. Still, a relationship is all about compromise. Hopefully, Gianna let Ryan keep at least one of his Star Wars trinkets, though. That must've really hurt to have to let them go.
In her spare time, Gianna also loves to do a lot of traveling both for work and play. Being a model from Florida, a lot of those trips are of the tropical variety, but she does like to mix it up every now and then. Back in January, Gianna and Ryan spent some time with friends at a ranch in Montana. As you can tell from some of the other pics that Gianna has posted on social media over the years, she really does love living that outdoors life. Luckily enough, so does Ryan. It's no wonder the two make such a perfect couple!
