If they needed to choose, Peterson and her sweetheart Jacob Walker said they still think the initial Statue of Liberty is sexier.

“I think that she had a somewhat rougher night, however she’s still hotter you understand exactly what I indicate?” he stated. “If I’m being entirely truthful, simply the womanhood of this image is sexier.” Hey, uh
