It's that time of year again! SI Swimsuit Casting Call season is upon us, and you're in for a real treat. For the first time ever, we held an open casting call to find our next big star. After receiving thousands of Instagram submissions from women around the world, we invited 35 finalists to SI's Brooklyn offices for an in-person interview and photo shoot. Up next is Iowa native Alexandra Armitage.

This New York real estate broker doubles as an aspiring model who loves traveling to places like Turks & Caicos, Tennessee and Costa Rica! Talk about a diverse set of destinations. When she's not posing with her adorable puppy, you can find Alexandra writing, working out and drinking all the coffee she can get her hands on! 

Enjoy these photos of Alexandra, and be sure to keep coming back to Swim Daily for more SI Swimsuit 2018 Casting Calls!​
