Sexy bikini model Liz Smith won the fourth annual Tropic Beauty Model Search held in Las Vegas last Saturday.

The Jacksonville, Florida, native, who believed she was a mermaid "up till an unhealthy age," was chosen the winner over 99 other contestants. She was also voted the contestant with the best smile.

"I’m hoping this will lead to a full-time modeling career and then on to being a television host," she told the Las Vegas Sun's Robin Leach. "It’s a wonderful opportunity that I never thought I’d ever get a shot at; it could completely change my life.”

If being a bacon-lover and someone who 'speaks sarcasm' weren't enough to win our hearts, the sexy photos she posts on instagram definitely will.

Along with her title of Tropic Beauty 2014, Liz also landed a modeling contract. Congrats!
