BE CONFIDENT, BE SEXY, BE SENSATIONAL!
Generally New Zealand is not known for it’s bikini competitions, modeling achievements or high success in beauty pageants, as much as other countries. New Zealand’s (Kiwi) culture places a lot of emphasis on it’s agriculture and sports. Wikipedia defines New Zealand culture as based on "rugby, racing and beer". Many New Zealanders either play or support their local rugby team and the All Blacks are national icons. Some have argued that rugby is the national religion!
The women in New Zealand are glorified more for their educational and athletic ambitions and achievements than their beauty, personality and/or modelling achievement.
Miss Bikini NZ focuses both on the girls inner and outer beauty.
Competitions like Miss Bikini NZ do a lot for young women. They help them develop themselves further as models and as individuals, to help them reach their full potential. They help with their self-esteem and confidence levels. They teach them how to carry themselves as beautiful women, how to take care of their appearance on and off stage. Some competitions teach the models how to speak in public in front of a large audience and involve charity work.
For Miss Bikini NZ, interested contestants all go through a selection process, where they are carefully coached on how to perform at the competitions, how to better themselves in all aspects.
