Official Contest Rules

The Olympia Weekend is proud to announce the 2016 Bikini Model Search. The contest will be held at the Olympia Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall on Friday, September 16 (Judging) and Saturday, September 17 (Finals). The winner of the model search will receive $2,000 in cash, (2) VIP Tickets for the 2017 Olympia Weekend and an opportunity to be one of the award presenters at the 2016 Mr. Olympia Finals.

Contestants will be judged on shape, tone, symmetry, poise and overall beauty. Contestants will be judged individually and in group comparisons.

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 and symmetry combined with overall condition and beauty. This is not a bodybuilding contest, so extreme muscularity will be negatively scored.

Stage Presence & Personality – 40% of Score
Contestants will be asked to walk in a bikini and high heels across the stage. Two-piece swimsuits are required and thongs or G-Strings are not acceptable. No lewd acts will be allowed. Judges will be looking for the contestant with the best stage presence and poise 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.

We encourage you to wear your swimsuit underneath your clothes and have your hair and make-up ready by the time you arrive to the back of the expo stage. We also encourage you to bring (2) bikinis. We will be inspecting your bikini bottoms to make sure they are not a g-string or a thong. If the bikini does not pass inspection you will not be allowed on stage unless you change your bikini. If you have a doubt of whether or not your bikini will pass inspection please submit a picture of you in the bikini so we may approve. Please note that regardless of your bikini being approved by e-mail it will be inspected again at the event. Please remember that Friday is judging, all competitors must report back on Saturday for the finals so we may announce the top 15.
