It was another largely successful crop, with five survivors and only two who didn’t come back. I’m proud to say that my predictions for what 2015 rookies would see 2016 were solid. My top five returned, my bottom two did not.
I don’t care what y’all say, I think Kelly Rohrbach is mouthwatering.
Especially in a sweet one-piece.
And of course Hailey Clauson, she of the bewilderingly low ROTY voting, got herself a cover and an array of great shots.
Including this awesome one-piece.
And I’m thrilled to see the bubbly Rose Bertram is back and as bubbly as ever.
With no one-pieces to her name, but I forgive her.
I can’t put my finger on why, but I had a feeling Ashley Smith and Solveig wouldn’t stick around. Much like Shannan Click a few years ago, they didn’t seem to snap into place.
Solveig in particular is very pretty. I’m not sure why she didn’t make a stronger impression on me.
And Ashley? Well, you can’t argue with this butt.
