Final report and galleries
September 25, 2010
Now in its fourth year, the FLEX Bikini Model Search Championships, presented by Gaspari Nutrition, was - as promised - bigger and better than ever as 88 beautiful bikini babes took over the main stage at Joe Weider's 2010 Olympia Weekend Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Sin City.
Out of that number, 15 women advanced to the next round of competition - including the four winners of our three-month long FLEX Bikini Model Search Online. And out of that elite lineup, 5 moved on to the final round.
In the end, the burden of choosing this year's winner came down to our expert panel of judges and after much deliberation, Alexandra Zerega was crowned the 2010 FLEX Bikini Model Search Championships winner. The 24-year old from Lakewood, California, in addition to being the month two winner of the online portion of the contest, also won the overall bikini title in the 2010 NPC California Championships.
I'm so excited, I can barely catch my breath," Alexandra said. "I look forward to representing FLEX Magazine. The sky's the limit and I'm so grateful for the wonderful opportunities that lie ahead."
Alexandra earned an exclusive publication contract with Weider/AMI and will appear in the 2011 FLEX Swimsuit Issue.
Dayna Maleton from Lyndhurst New Jersey, who also won the Arnold Classic Amateur bikini title, took the runner-up spot while Tatum Miranda from Studio City, California finished third.
