WHAT SEPARATES SWIMSUIT FROM FITNESS MODELS
This is a very important question that needs clarification because athletes need to have a clear criterion on what the judges will be looking for the day they step on stage. The major difference between a Swimsuit Model and a Fitness Model is primarily determined by how lean the athlete is.
There is no doubt a fine line between being too lean and not quite lean enough so next up we will go over the criteria in greater detail.
ROUND – BIKINI
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.
Bikini’s can be plain or embellished/crystals etc.
Thongs or G-Strings are not acceptable.
Competitors will do a T-Walk across the stage individually to pre-selected music by the ANB Promoter.
Athletes will do 3 individual poses of choice at each point marked on the stage.
The idea is to look as though your having fun with each round displaying a bit of your personality
After completing your T-walk you will line up at the Enter point again until each competitor has finished.
Once all competitors are finished you will go back on the stage for your quarter turn comparisons.
Note: No moves of any sexual or erotic nature will be tolerated.
