Jena Sims is looking to keep her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit dreams alive.
The wife of golfer Brooks Koepka revealed Wednesday on TikTok that she’s hoping to make the cut as part of the iconic magazine’s Swim Search, which will soon narrow its prospects down to 24.
“They’re announcing that on Friday, so, me and my friend Summer we have been texting every single day, ‘Two more sleeps until we find out,’” Sims said in a GRWM [get ready with me] video ahead of the LIV Golf welcome party in Tuscon, Arizona.
Sims added Wednesday that being featured in the magazine is her “biggest dream.”
“I got really close, I made the interview rounds two years ago and didn’t make anything beyond that, so, I’m not giving up,” she said.
Sims previously posted an SI Swimsuit audition video on TikTok last summer.
In her audition video, the 34-year-old model opened up about her philanthropic endeavors with the Pageant of Hope, a nonprofit organization that gives “children and teenagers who face serious challenges the opportunity to shine and be celebrated for who they are.”
“Helping people and spreading joy really is my passion, and I know that together, we can create even more positive impact on the world,” Sims said in her video from June.
Sims said in Wednesday’s clip that she also submitted an entry with SI Swimsuit’s Swimfluencer Network, which recently detailed the upcoming steps of the Swim Search process.
The 24 participants selected Friday will have the opportunity to participate in a group casting with the SI Swimsuit team over Zoom later this month.
From there, the 24 prospects will be narrowed down to 12 on April 3, with the remaining participants receiving a feature on SI Swimsuit’s website.
The six Swim Search finalists will be announced on May 12 and will have the chance to walk in a runway show during Miami Swim Week later this summer.
In September, one of the six finalists will be named the first rookie of the 2024 edition of SI Swimsuit.
Beyond the SI Swimsuit reveal, Sims has an exciting weekend ahead as she’ll be supporting Koepka, 32, at LIV Golf’s second event of the year.
She traveled to Mexico last month for the Saudi-backed tour’s season opener.
Sims and Koepka will celebrate their first wedding anniversary in June.
