Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search on Star World

Mumbai, July 7, 2006 - 12 beautiful girls. 6 weeks of exotic shoots. Only ONE coveted cover - the cover of Sports Illustrated's famed annual Swimsuit Issue. With a combination of beauty, athleticism and personality, one of the 12 will win a million-dollar modelling contract, AND a glamorous appearance in the best-selling issue of any magazine in the world. Lots of sunshine, slick bodies and exotic shoots…we promise you'll be up for the challenge. Catch Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search on STAR WORLD - starting July 11, Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

This is also the first model competition where the viewer gets to vote for the final winner. The six-part series strongly focuses on what it takes to become a successful swimsuit model aside from the eye candy. The twelve selected finalists will live in Los Angeles where they will be widely tested on their physical fitness, mental endurance and modelling skills. Whoever doesn't have what it takes, gets kicked off the show - two by two every week.

When only two are left, they are flown off to a luscious location to shoot a spread for Sports Illustrated. Nobody knows who will win…until viewers vote for their favourite photo spread in the series finale.

Charged with the task of whittling down the field of hopeful models is a three-judge panel, including former Sports Illustrated model Roshumba Williams, NEXT Model Management President Joel Wilkenfeld and Sports Illustrated swimsuit editor Jule Campbell.

Who is going to walk away with world-renowned magazine cover and waltz off with a million-dollar NEXT Model Management contract? The fun is in finding out for yourself. Don't miss the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search -starting July 11, Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
