Be the next FLEX Swimsuit Model and earn a contract with Weider Publications

Hot Bikini Model Search

Every year, FLEX Magazine scours the globe in selecting eight of the most beautiful women in the fitness industry to appear in our annual FLEX Swimsuit Issue. In 2009, one of those women could be you. For the second consecutive year, the winner of the FLEX Magazine Bikini Model Search will appear in the pages of FLEX Magazine. In addition, the winner will earn an exclusive contract as a spokesmodel with Weider Publications.

A year ago, nearly 100 contestants came out during Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas with the hopes of being the next FLEX Bikini model. This year, we are opening up that contest by running the five-month FLEX Bikini Model Search Online. The contest begins on April 1st, and each of the five monthly winners will earn $250 and a berth in the 15-woman finals on Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas.

The Olympia Weekend and FLEX Magazine are proud to announce the 2008 FLEX Magazine’s Bikini Model Search brought to you by Muscletech and Bodybuilding.com. The contest will be held at the Olympia Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall on Friday, September 26 (Judging) and Saturday, September 27 (Finals). The winner of the model search will receive an exclusive modeling contract with Weider Publications, LLC and will appear in the pages of FLEX Magazine.

Contestants will be judged on shape, tone, symmetry, poise and overall beauty. Contestants will be judged individually and in group comparisons. The purpose is to have fun with the audience and exhibit a charismatic stage presence and overall appearance.

You must be 18 years or older to enter. No experience necessary.


Body Condition & Overall Beauty – 50% of Score
Judges will be looking for fit, feminine contestants who display proper shape, symmetry and poise combined with overall condition and beauty. This is not a bodybuilding contest, so extreme muscularity will be negatively scored.

State Presence & Personality – 40% of Score
Contestants will be asked to walk in a bikini and high heels across the stage. It is important to mention that two-piece swimsuits are required. Thongs or G-Strings are not acceptable. No lewd acts will be allowed. Contestants will be asked to turn and pose at each corner and again at the center of the stage. Judges will be looking for the competitor with the best stage presence and who can successfully convey her personally to the audience.

Audience Popularity – 10% of Score
The goal is to be charming and charismatic, and to incite audience participation. The competition should be fun
