Food Network star Rachael Ray has selected a part-time waitress, full-time dog rescuer, to appear on the premiere of her new television show "The Big Tip."

Candi Bright, Founder and President of Gentle Giants Rescue and Sanctuary, was discovered through her Facebook page and the rest, as they say, is history.

The show, which premieres on June 8, strives to provide a life-changing tip to America's most deserving waiters and waitresses...each person featured on the show will receive a life-changing tip, but only one will get The Big Tip.

Bright, whose rescue took in several former Olympic Animal Sanctuary dogs, stated that she was:

"Honored and amazed at being chosen."
