Women Line Up for Sports Illustrated's Open Casting Call
Could one of these lucky ladies be the magazine's next cover girl?
Thousands of women lined up on a rainy day in Miami for Sports Illustrated's annual open casting call over the weekend. No modeling experience is required.
One candidate proudly showed off her bikini body just four months after giving birth.
“I wanted to make it a point to still get here, so I’ve been running in and out breastfeeding,” she told Inside Edition.
At 58 years old, Jodi Harrison-Bauer is the oldest hopeful at the casting call. Her 30-year-old daughter came along for support.
“She's almost 60! It's awesome!” her daughter said. “I really hope I look like her in 28 years.”
“It is so rewarding and refreshing seeing the type of women that are coming through. They are of every age, shape, size, race,” MJ Day, editor of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue, told Inside Edition.
This year's cover girl, Camille Kostek, was there to interview the hopefuls. She was discovered at the open casting call two years ago.
“I know exactly what these girls are going through because I was in their shoes, so it's a pretty cool story to tell them. This is ultimately how I got started with Sports Illustrated swimsuit. This could be you,” she said.
