Belles line up in battle of bikinis

BROOKE Evers and Melissa Parker are ready to do their bikinis, of course.

Brooke, 20, of Robina, and Melissa, 26, of Nerang, are contestants in the Ralph Australia Swimwear Model of the Year competition, with the first of three regional heats at the Coolangatta Hotel this Sunday.

Heats also will be held at the hotel on January 15 and 29, with the final on February 5 at 1pm.

If either Brooke or Melissa win that final, they will then be on their way to the national final which will be held in March.

Brooke, who has been modelling since she was four years old but also works in sales and marketing, said it was her first time in the competition although she has already appeared in Ralph magazine.

Melissa also has appeared in the magazine but would like to win the national competition because she would win a share of $20,000 in cash and prizes.

To enter the competition, open to females who turned 18 before November 1, 2005, call 55921206.
