Aussie Casino Babes Do Star City Ralph, by Greg Tingle - 7th April 2011

G'day punters, casino and gambling millionaires and billionaires, sports nuts, fashion freaks, babe watchers, politicians, legal eagles, one and all. Popular men's magazine Ralph is hosting a bikini modelling contest at Star City in 'Sin City' Sydney, hence 'Casino Babes' and 'Poker Babes'. We've got that plus news from the international casino babes and models sector, and more. Media Man and Gambling911 with the casino babes and poker babes special from 'Sin City' Sydney...

Casino And Poker Babes At Star City For Ralph Tonight...

Sexy guys and girls... its time for the babes to strut their stuff at Star City casino tonight.

The babes from across Australia are aiming to become Ralph Australian Swimwear Model of the Year.

The field has gone down from 2000 model hopefuls, the 38 finalists showed off their bikini bodies last Tuesday at the casinos pool in preparation for the finals tonight which promises to be a tantalizing and titillating affair.

The Aussie and Kiwi (New Zealander) babes from down under and the Tasman, are competing for the the big one - Ralph Australian Swimwear Model of the Year and a share of $50,000 in prizes.

West Australian babe Emmi Moore is the defending champion and was prepared to generously share this...

"I tell them to just be themselves and try and have fun with it. The judges are looking for someone who's having a good time and not taking themselves too seriously. And be natural. It's really put my foot in the door, I've done a number of photo shoots and been in a number of magazines. I'd like to get into presenting but I still need a bit of work."

Moore is committed to living in Perth, as guys - she's taken by boyfriend, West Coast Eagles midfielder Chris Masten.

"My partner's based in Perth so it is hard but I don't mind flying over every few weeks," Moore said.

See you all there tonight. It's casino and poker babes gone wild - that's the hope anyway.


North Queensland Model Tanika McDonald To Compete At Ralph Finals At Star City...

Model Tanika McDonald from the Whitsundays in Northern Queensland is competing tonight.

The Cannonvale native won her local final in Mackay just last month, which got her slotted into the national final.

McDonald advised she was really looking forward to tonight.

"I'm going to try to make the most out of it," she said.

Ms McDonald has been doing her thing with swimwear comps since 2008. Her titles include Batercard Miss Indy National Finalist in 2009 and made the calendar shoot in 2010.

"I was surprised the first time. If I do better than what I did last time it would be a bonus.

The week-long festivities are at Sydney's Star Casino. McDonald will be just one of 39 babes from Australia and New Zealand who will be competing for the tag of Australian Ralph swimwear model of the year.

She will be strutting her stuff in the evening and swim wear categories and will also do a bush tucker bag of interviews, photo shoots and media conferences in front of a panel of judges.

McDonald said her goal was to make the top 12 calendar photo shoot.

"I don't want to be too ambitious. There are a lot of girls who are very well-known in the industry. The thing is the more you put into it, the more you'll get recognised."

But tells us it's not just about good looks.

"You can be the prettiest girl in the competition but that doesn't count if you don't have personality. The judges look for natural, down-to-earth girls who try to see the positive in things," she said.

May the best, fairest and hottest babe win.


Atlantic City Casino Babes Come In Many Shapes And Sizes; Resorts Casino Hotel Learns The Hard Way...

When Katharyn Felicia was advised that she and other cocktail waitresses at Resorts Casino Hotel were to pose for photos in skimpy new flapper costumes, she thought it was to evaluate the sexy black outfits to make sure they fit and looked right. What the girls didn't know, she said, was that the photo shoot would determine which of them would still have jobs when the 10-minute encounter was over! You read that correctly. Felicia, who had been with Resorts since the the first day of business back in 1978 and was twice named employee of the month, was one of 15 cocktail waitresses fired last month from Resorts.
The stated reason, they say, was for "violating uniform standards." The real reason, they suspect, is that management wanted to get rid of older women who were judged to be not quite sexy enough to fit in with the new image the casino is trying to project. Seven of the fired ladies are suing Resorts, claiming age and sex discrimination. The others, including Felicia, are considering legal options. "It was very degrading to women," said Felicia, 53. "I feel they never gave me a chance. We had no idea that photo shoot was fighting for our jobs." Resorts said it gave each employee a fair evaluation and said the costumes are an integral part of its rebranding effort. The casino has adopted a roaring '20s theme after the popularity of the hit HBO series "Boardwalk Empire," based on Prohibition-era Atlantic City's reputation as the vice capital of the East Coast.
"A critical aspect of theming is the new costumes front-line employees will be wearing, including the new cocktail server costume," Resorts spokeswoman Courtney Birmingham said. "This particular cocktail server costume was chosen as part of the larger plan to unveil the new Resorts Casino Hotel as a destination for fun, excitement and a one-of-a-kind experience." The sexy and smart costumes include short, skin-revealing black dresses with deep open backs. Waitresses also wear fishnet stockings and ornate jazz era hats. "All cocktail servers were given individual consideration and the selection process was conducted in a fair and objective manner," Birmingham said. "We empathize with the cocktail servers who lost their jobs and gave them hiring preference in other open positions at Resorts. Some took advantage of this offer and some did not." Attorney Kevin Costello, who represents seven of the laid-off servers, said the casino's action was "just more of the same age and gender stereotype discrimination." "Apparently, a modeling agency panel of some sort has decided that the servers didn't have the right look to continue in their jobs despite having the skills to do so," he said. In 2008, two former cocktail servers at Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa settled a multimillion-dollar sex discrimination lawsuit they brought against the casino. They claimed the casino humiliated costumed waitresses — known as "Borgata Babes" — by imposing weight limits, encouraging breast augmentation surgery and emphasizing looks over job performance. Felicia told of a late February photo shoot that was so stressful it made her break out in hives as she struggled to put on a costume that fit properly. She said each of the women who had to be photographed was made to enter a small changing room with the only light coming from a small window above. It was so dark that a small mirror was nearly useless. Costumes were strewn about the floor, and she and others had to kneel or crawl around to try to find a costume to wear. "I was forced to get undressed in front of six co-workers, one of them being my manager," she said. "I had no top on because you can't wear a bra with the uniform. I had stockings on, but that's it. It was the most embarrassing thing I've ever had to do." The costumes' sizes were not marked. The first one she tried on was too big, she said. The second one, which she eventually wore, gave no support to her bosom. "I did not feel I looked very good in it," Felicia said. "I was very nervous. I broke out in hives as I was walking out onto the floor. I was losing it, I was stressing so much." The photographer told her she was not allowed to pose. Rather, he took pictures from three angles: with her facing forward, backward, and from the side. The photos were shot from the neck-down, with Felicia holding a sign with a number on it that would identify her once the photos were evaluated. Although it did not happen to her, she said some co-workers were told to spread their legs a bit, or turn their rear ends toward the camera.
"It's hard to believe that in this day and age women are still put through this," she said. "I'm a good employee. I did my job well; many managers have told me that. I just don't understand this. I'm still in shock. "I understand that cocktail-serving projects sex appeal, you have to be pleasant and radiate a party atmosphere," Felicia said. "I get that. I've done it for nearly 33 years. If it's all about what men want, well, men like all different kinds of shapes and sizes."

A Media Man spokesperson said "We're with the ladies one this one. Many blokes do like all shapes and sizes. It's not just about pretty young things or young and dumb and ready for... action".
