A swimsuit competition is a beauty contest in which people wearing swimsuits compete against each other for prizes including trophies,money, and modeling contracts. Swimsuit competitions have been popularized as part of beauty pageants such as the Miss America and Miss World pageants and by organizations such as Hawaiian Tropic. Competitions are held in bars and nightclubs, during intermissions of boxing or wrestling matches, and at car shows. Bodybuilding competitions may also feature bikini contest segments.
