Bikini Awards: Newsroom‘s Olivia Munn Battles Claudia Romani

The truth is, we knew Claudia Romani was going to have an easy time with Round 1 of the 2013 Bikini Awards. After last year, when Beyonce just barely beat her for the overall title, we know the power of the Italian model’s rabid fans. But how will she do against longtime geek-boy favorite Olivia Munn? Both of these ladies crushed their competition by thousands of votes.

Now that her schedule is full of saying important things onscreen for The Newsroom, it looks like Olivia has had much less time to hang out on the beach to be captured by eager paparazzi. We hope you don’t mind, then, that we used a couple of “vintage” shots from back in 2011. She kind of needed that help, given that it’s Claudia’s job to prance around in her two-piece.

Enjoy the pics and vote below. Voting for this round ends at 11 pm ET on August 19.
