Beauty -
overall cosmetic appearance, photogenic, skin tone and sex appeal.
Poise and General Impression -
Overall grooming, personality, self assurance, composure and carriage.
Muscle Tone & Definition -
Overall Muscle tone with a low degree of muscle separation. The judges are not looking for muscle mass or "ripped to the bone," extreme striations or the vascularity of a bodybuilder or a figure competitor.
They are looking for shapely and toned figure that is highly photogenic and marketable.
Symmetry & Proportion - Overall structural harmony of the model's figure relative to the shape and size of various body parts and proportional balance of opposite body parts. The upper and lower extremities should flow aesthetically when viewed from all sides creating a balanced and symmetrical appearance.

Each competitor will be given an overall placing in each round and an overall tabulation of scores between both rounds.
