Individual Round: Competitors will execute a model walk to center stage. Beginning facing the front, the competitor will perform quarter turns, face the judges as directed and proceed to line up on stage right/left based on the direction of the expediter, while other competitors complete their presentations. Competitors will stand in a side-relaxed pose while lined up at stage right. Competitors will be judged on symmetry, muscle development and tone, and overall stage presence and posing. Judges will be looking for a small degree of muscularity with no extreme striations visible. Hair, make-up, suit, jewelry and tan should all complement the competitor’s figure overall.
Comparison Round: Once all competitors in a class have completed their individual round, the head judge will call random competitor numbers of their choice to line up center stage where quarter turn comparisons will be performed. Judges will compare competitors against others in the same class to help determine placement.
Presentation Format: Each competitor will again be called to center stage where they are given 30 seconds to perform quarter turns one last time. Competitors will then line up on stage right/left based on the direction of the expediter and walk a “box walk” formation giving all athletes their time on the stage. Once all have been presented the expediter will instruct the competitors to exit the stage. The top 5 competitors will be called back on stage for trophy presentations.
