You know how the past few months we’ve been sharing some highlights from the 2018 SI Swimsuit Model Search featuring the likes of Camille Kostek, Haley Kalil, Olivia Jordan, and Dominique Wilkins’ Niece Jasmyn?
Well, Sports Illustrated has finally whittled it down to six finalists from their open casting call which yielded thousands of submissions on Instagram. Out of those thousands, the lucky ladies who will actually be appearing in the 2018 SI Swimsuit issue as Model Search contestants are: Allie Ayers, Olivia Jordan, Iyonna Fairbanks, Haley Kalil, Camille Kostek and Tabria Majors.
When all is said and done, one of these lovely ladies will eventually be crowned the winner of the Model Search contest, earning a spot in the 2019 issue of SI Swimsuit as a Rookie model.
Here’s a little background on the six finalists…
The final six models come from across the country, ranging from Oklahoma and Ohio to Connecticut and Tennessee. The girls have had jobs such as New England Patriots cheerleader, podcast host, Miss USA 2015, and security guard. They represent a diverse range of personalities, backgrounds and body types.
These women will appear in the 2018 issue as Model Search contestants, alongside previously revealed Rookie models Sailor Brinkley Cook, Robin Holzken, Chase Carter and Anne de Paula, who was the 2017 Model Search winner.
Oh, you didn’t know Sailor Brinkley Cook is going to be a Rookie in 2018? Yeah, she is. She’ll be the first second generation SI Swimsuit model ever. Her mom seemed pretty happy about it.
As for the rest of the ladies, they too were pretty excited, to say the least.
