As summer nears, one pool party is looking to heat up its annual bikini contest. Wet Republic’s Friday afternoon staple Hot 100 has always offered some of Vegas’ most beautiful ladies their shot at a bounty of cash and prizes, but this year one lucky winner could bring home $1 million.
“This will be our biggest year yet, and we expect to see a record number of contestants,” says Alex Cordova, executive vice president of marketing for Hakkasan Group. “Offering not one, but five lucky ladies a chance to walk out with a million dollars is a huge incentive. There will of course be more competition among the ladies, but it’s all in good fun.”
As in prior years, women can register at SPYONvegas.com/Hot100/signup (full disclosure: SPYONvegas is a sister company of Vegas Seven), and are then invited to show up to one of eight Friday qualifying rounds. Each Friday, roughly 15 contestants will advance to the voting rounds; finalists must come to at least two of the five voting days. While at the pool, guests of Wet Republic can vote for whom they think is the hottest, or anyone can cast a ballot at SPYONvegas.com.
The Top 100 field will return for the final Friday when $100,000 in cash and $50,000 in prizes will be given out. First place wins $35,000, second $15,000, third $10,000, with the 40th winning $500. Prizes include services such as massages, hair appointments, tables at nightclubs, room packages and bikinis.
While the prizes are guaranteed, each of the top five women also receive three spins on a giant wheel. If the spins total $1,000, the contestant walks away with $1 million. So clear your Fridays and prepare for some serious eye candy…err, we mean competition.
