FLEX Bikini Model Search Championships

A look back at the bikini blockbuster that started it all.

Hundreds of tanned, shapely, sexy girls in skimpy bikinis and high heels fl aunting their goods for thousands of grateful guys (and a select panel of judges) at the biggest gathering of bodybuilding and fitness fans in the world. Sound too good to be true? Well, we’d think so, too, if it weren’t for the fact that for the past six years, this is exactly what happened at the Las Vegas Convention Center every September when the FLEX Bikini Model Search Championships took center stage at the Olympia Expo during Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend.



Open to all women 18 years of age and older, the live show also includes the winners of the FLEX Bikini Model Search Online, which runs on FLEXonline.com in the weeks leading up to the event. The first-place prize is an exclusive modeling contract with AMI/Weider and features in FLEX magazine, plus two VIP tickets to the following year’s Olympia Weekend. For winners of the contest, it’s an opportunity of a lifetime to open doors to greater exposure. So as we get ready to crown the next FLEX Bikini Model Search Championships winner, we take a look back at the totally hot past champions.
