Over 5,000 beauties from across the country sent in their hottest shots. Then, the discerning eyes at the SI office narrowed that pool down to 15 women to walk in its inaugural SI swimwear line presentation at Miami Swim Week.
Now, the six sexiest of those will grace the magazine alongside high-profile hotties like Kate Upton in exotic bikini photo shoots. Still, only one will be named the winner and later a SI Swimsuit 2019 rookie.
Below, meet the six gorgeous winners of the open casting call and read what Sports Illustrated had to say of them as well.
Haley Kalil, 24 —Victoria, MN
"This former Miss Minnesota and wife of Carolina Panthers' star Matt Kalil is as beautiful inside as she is out! She's guaranteed to be red hot in SI Swimsuit 2018."
Olivia Jordan, 28 — Tulsa, OK
"This blonde beauty may be best known for her title as Miss USA 2015, but as an aspiring actress and model, she's got so much more to offer as an #SISwimSearch finalist."
Tabria Majors, 27 — Nashville, TN
"The crowd went wild for this curvalicious babe during our Swim Week show in Miami, and we did, too. Tabria's passion for body diversity and universal beauty is only one of the many reasons she made our final cut."
Camille Kostek, 25 — Killingworth, CT
"You won't find this Connecticut cutie on the sidelines as a Patriots cheerleader anymore — but get ready, because Camille is about to own the pages of SI Swimsuit."
Iyonna Fairbanks, 25 — Cincinnati, OH
"Security guard by night, aspiring runway model by day...it can only be our girl Iyonna! This Midwest babe is ready to shine as one of the rawest and realest members of our Final 6."
Allie Ayers, 23 — Snyder, OK
"Let the Katy Perry comparisons begin! Allie's #SISwimSearch video was one of the very first we watched. With a killer smile and a drive to break the midsize-modeling mold, Allie is our last, but certainly not least, finalist."
