The South African Swimsuit 2013 models are revealed

10 June 2013 in General, Sport

SA Rugby magazine has partnered with Netsport Media (the team who launched Sports Illustrated Swimwear South Africa in 1997) to bring you South African Swimsuit 2013, a brand new glossy magazine featuring the best local and international swimwear beauties. The South African Swimsuit issue will feature six top models plus four new swimsuit superstars of which the model search winner is included. 


The model search competition ran from 15 March until the end of May. Entrants wanting to submit themselves into the SA Swimsuit competition to stand a chance of becoming one of the four new superstars did so online and approved entries were displayed on the SA Swimsuit model search website.


Stars were awarded for fulfilling various competition criteria and racking up the stars saw entrants rocket to the top of the leader board. The leader board helped you track the most popular entrants and each star earned during the competition had a corresponding points value. The highest points scorers made up the Top 10 finalists at the end of May, when the first phase of the competition closed.


‘Voting stars’ included votes coming in for any entrant directly through the website every day. ‘Popularity stars’ included The Girl of the Day, Girl of the Week, Blog Award and SA RUGBY STARS. 'Judges' stars’ included Editor's Choice, Photographer's Choice, Videographer's Choice and Model's Choice.


Over the 10-week voting period the following girls were awarded an SA Rugby Magazine Star as voted for by the public on Irinia Ostroukhova, Careen Truter, Donna Solomons, Kim Feenstra, Yolandi Malherbe, Charne King, Jade Fairbrother, Une Lottering, Alyssa Fischer, Anneline Klaaste, Dudu Maduma and Tarryn Kim.
