Zocorro arrived in Ireland to pursue a career as a Rose of Tralee. Four years later, she found herself, on a sunny August morning, urinating into a tupperware in her hotel suite, in front of the panel of judges of the International Rose of Tralee Festival. The judges consisted of Gay Byrne, Marty Whelan, the wife of Daniel O’Donnell, the daughter of Chris de Burgh, the Lord Mayor of Tralee, and Paddy McGillicuddy, Chairman of Tralee Motor Cars. She never in her wildest dreams imagined that the Roses would be subjected to a surprise random urine test.
