SI Swimsuit 2017 casting calls are underway and we can't get over all the beautiful babes coming through our office. 

As we sift through hundreds of gorgeous ladies to fill out our next rookie class, we're hoping you'll follow along! When we meet SI Swimsuit hopefuls, you will, too. So what are you waiting for? 

Next up is brunette babe Ashika Pratt. This beauty comes to us all the way from New Zealand, where she was scouted and started modeling at just 15-years-old. Since starting her career, Ashika has shot in some pretty stellar places, and even recalls one shoot where she posed underwater with sharks surrounding her. 

Get to know more about Ashika in the video above, and be sure to keep coming back to Swim Daily for more 2017 SI Swimsuit Casting Calls!
