1 / India Paulino
A new Bikini International queen has been crowned, as last year's runner-up became this year's champion. Her name is India Paulino, from Pembroke Pines, Florida, and her sassy stage presence spiced up a lineup that was pretty hot to begin with!
2 / Nathalia Melo
In second place was Nathalia Melo, making a huge improvement from last year's fifth place. The Brazilian booty queen faces a dilemma that is the envy of women (and men) the world over: How to bring up the rest of her body to match her rockin' rear. Keep trying, Nathalia, and good luck. That's a tall order.
3 / Nicole Nagrani
Nicole Nagrani was third tonight, the same place she landed last year. She looked absolutely beautiful, and her suit was my favorite on display tonight.
4 / Yeshaira Robles
Yeshaira Robles came in fourth place—not a bad place to be in her very first Bikini International. She is one to look out for in the future.
5 / Jessica Paxson
Jessica Paxson transitioned from figure to bikini a while ago, and the Ohio resident placed fifth, delighting her ardent hometown supporters.
6 / Jaime Baird
Jaime Baird was just shy of the top five tonight, coming in sixth. She will only improve from this placing. She is an absolutely stunning girl, and to paraphrase the namesake of this entire weekend, "She'll be back."
