A Rockford, Illinois native named Adison Justis was just named one of the 12 finalists in the 2023 Sports Illustrated Swim Search, and boy, is she gorgeous!

SI Swim Search 2023

Each year Sports Illustrated conducts a world-wide casting call for aspiring and established models to feature in their new digital marketing campaigns, and of course, the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

The Swim Search is open to all ages, nationalities, personalities, and body types, and to be considered, applicants needed to submit a 60-second casting video that features what excites and motivates them. They need to give the Swim team a glimpse into the applicant's "true authentic self".

Since the Swim Search went online during the COVID pandemic, more applicants each year, and it's a HOT competition, (both figuratively and literally)...

Adison Justis is a 21-year-old model from Rockford, Ill., currently residing in Los Angeles. She was scouted by Wilhelmina Models at 17 and has been modeling full-time since. Justis recently completed her two-year college degree online while working as an intern for producer Lori Rothschild Ansaldi, specializing in criminal justice reform and wrongful conviction cases. She researches innocence claims to determine the viability of wrongful conviction cases, pushing cases for media exposure in hopes of finding a law firm to take the case pro bono.
