NBC has released the identities and biographical information for the twelve women that will compete in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search, its new Top Model-like reality modeling competition series.

Premiering Wednesday, January 5 at 8PM ET/PT, the six-episode Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search will feature twelve women competing for a million dollar modeling contract and the chance to appear in the magazine's annual Swimsuit Issue, which will hit newsstands shortly after the show's February finale.

Similar to Top Model, Swimsuit Model Search's contestants will live together in Los Angeles while attempting to win the magazine appearance and NEXT Model Management modeling contract. After a three-person judging panel narrows the contestants to two finalists, viewers will vote to determine which woman's exotic photo shoot appears as part of the magazine's Swimsuit Issue.

The twelve women competing on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search are listed below. Additional photos of the women are available in our Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search photo gallery.
