About

THE BIKINI OPEN is a special-event, retro series featuring the best swimsuit, fitness, bikini, and modeling competitions from the early 90s. The 8 initial Bikini Open programs were launched on pay-per-view in the US, but became so successful that we re-edited six more with substantial new material for syndication. Women in thong bikinis,men in Speedos, tanned limbs flying about, and hips gyrating to music. This is early reality TV: interactive viewer polls and candid camera moments featuring good, clean fun.

Miss Hawaiian Tropic International
The Seagrams Golden Blondes competition
The Venus Swimwear Pageant
