And then there were six.
On Wednesday, Sports Illustrated narrowed down their model search for their Swimsuit Issue to six finalists: Allie Ayers, Iyonna Fairbanks, Olivia Jordan, Haley Kalil, Camille Kostek and Tabria Majors.
The curvy contestants will all appear in the magazine’s 2018 Swimsuit Issue, and the winner will get her own spread in the 2019 issue as a rookie model.

The ladies were chosen from more than 5,000 applicants. Finalists’ backgrounds are as varied as body activism (Majors, 27) to beauty pageants (Kalil, 25).
Jordan, the former Miss USA, told The Post at the mag’s casting call: “I found these issues [as a little kid], and I was like, ‘These are the most empowered, confident women.’ ”

Meanwhile Kostek, a former Patriots cheerleader, told The Post at her September photo shoot, “I want to break standards. I wanna be one of those people that young women look up to. I want them to know that it’s OK to love your freckles and your curves.”
