Meet the Top 10 Finalists for Maxim’s “Cover Girl”

These are the fiercest beauties from a field of more than 10,000 applicants.

On Tuesday, Maxim revealed the first-ever reader-voted winner of the Maxim Cover Girl contest.

More than 10,000 gorgeous women from all over the country entered for the chance to be the first-ever Maxim Cover Girl, and the contest, which raised over $500,000 for Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors charitydrew millions of voters for the 3-month judging process.

Ultimately, Florida beauty Olivia Burns won the crown, along with a coveted photoshoot with famed Maxim photographer Gilles Bensimon, the cover of the January/February issue, a 4-page inside feature in the magazine, and a grand prize of $25,000.

While Burns is unequivocally deserving of the title, she had some fierce competition. Check out the other top 10 finalists from the Maxim Cover Girl Contest, all of whom will get their own one-page spread in the magazine in the future:
