What makes a reality star these days? Whether you’re a pawn broker, an aspiring model or an already famous actor, all it really takes is the willingness to bare SOMETHING for our entertainment. Now, during the 2013 Bikini Awards, we’re happy that these ladies have been exposing some extra skin as well as their innermost secrets.
We have many different worlds represented here: Real Housewife of Miami Joanna Krupa competes alongside Ice-T‘s lovely lady Coco. Adrianne Curry finds herself facing her onetime ANTM judge Kimora Lee Simmons. Can pregnant Kim Kardashian (here in a one-piece rather than that controversial bikini she wore this spring) show up post-baby Kristin Cavallari? Stacy Keibler’s showing George Clooney what he’s missing. Celeb Apprentice Claudia Jordan teaches us a thing or two about having fun in the sun. And last but not least, we have this year’s wild card, Lauren Stoner, a Spin Crowd publicist-turned-actress who has managed to be photographed in her bikini quite a bit this year. And who are we to ignore such a pointed effort to enter our esteemed competition?
Check out the gallery above and then select your fave. This poll will close on August 15 at 11 pm ET before the next round begins the following day.
