Official Contest Rules

The Olympia Weekend is proud to announce the 2017 FLEX Men’s Model Search. The contest will be held at the Olympia Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall on Friday, September 15 (Judging) and Saturday, September 16 (Finals). The winner of the model search will receive $2,000 and (2) Tickets to the 2018 Olympia Weekend.

Contestants will be judged on shape, tone, symmetry, poise and overall appearance. Contestants will be judged individually and in group comparisons.

You must be 18 years or older to enter. No experience necessary.


Muscularity & Body Condition – 50% of Score
Judges will be looking for fit contestants who display proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest, so extreme muscularity is not necessary.

Stage Presence & Personality – 40% of Score
Contestants will be asked to walk in board shorts with no shirt and no shoes across the stage (no tight shorts or shorts mid thigh will be allowed). No lewd acts will be allowed. Judges will be looking for the contestant with the best stage presence and poise who can successfully convey his personality to the audience.

Audience Popularity – 10% of Score
The goal is to be charming and charismatic, and to incite audience participation.
