BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The final six women in Sports Illustrated’s 2019 swimsuit model search traveled to The Bahamas to be photographed for the issue, and one of the women is Baton Rouge native, Brooks Nader.

When asked in an interview with SI what Nader’s family in Louisiana thinks about her being in the swimsuit issue, Nader responded, “My family is over the moon excited about this! None of us ever imagined it would be possible for the little girl from Louisiana to grace the pages of such an iconic magazine! My 3 little sisters are especially proud, them and all their friends are now cult followers of SI Swimsuit!”
