India Paulino Wins The 2013 Bikini International!

India Paulino becomes the third woman to win the Bikini International!

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."



Final Results ///
  1. India Paulino
  2. Nathalia Melo
  3. Nicole Nagrani
  4. Yeshaira Robles
  5. Jessica Paxson
  6. Jaime Baird

I really don't even get it. What is this division even judged on? That Nathalia chick is the only one who looks like she actually lifts.

But Nathalia Melo looks great - especially from the back! I see she is Brazilian - are those implants :) ?

They are all in great shape. Guys respect chicks with big muscles. Guys I know look for bikini model bodies.

Don't look like they lift? What? So you only lift if you have huge, bulging muscles? Yeah, I guess I don't lift then. It looks to me like these women lift plenty. I don't think you get muscle tone and cuts like they have by doing cardio 24-7. It's just sad that people get on the internet and dish people that obviously work hard and are dedicated. I get tired of all the yahoos throwing their 2cents around. If you don't like what they do--just shut up and keep your negatively to yourself.

Who the hell was judging this? Ok, for bikini you shouldn't be too shredded (even tho to me Nathalia is perfect) but at least you need to have a round butt, not a flat table!!!! Disappointed. I would have put Paulino at last place .

That's what I thought when I saw the results. I mean yes it's "bikini" division but it is still a competition among the "athletes" not a pageant contest. Nathalia represents the perfect body for this division. India is beautiful woman but she doesn't look like an athlete at all. Weird judging, indeed.

As a competitor I'm aware it's not JUST about who has the best body. It's about who presents it the best. I think still pictures and side by side comparisons say a lot but unless you were there and saw how each competitor blessed the stage it's a lot of times challenging to pick a winner based of pictures.
