NEW IPL BIKINI PROS! Tabetha Hernandez, Judi Mcaskill & Jenneth Logana
By Ben Yosef | Michael Brooks Photography
Tabetha Hernandez was a dominant force at the 2018 2nd Annual IPL SoCal Classic on April 14th in Covina, CA. The Bikini Division was stacked all around at this show, from Novice to Masters. But, the Open class was the biggest class of the entire show.
“IT WAS LIKE A DREAM THAT SUDDENLY CAME TRUE! IT WAS THE MOST HUMBLING, REWARDING FEELING. TEARS OF ABSOLUTE JOY!!!”
IPL newcomer, Tabetha Hernandez opted to enter only Bikini Open at this contest, forgoing all other divisions and classes. A decision which clearly paid off as Tabetha propelled herself to the top of the class. Tabetha’s most standout attribute was her posing and presentation. With a sultry, confident, unique style reminiscent of New York-based Bikini Pro Tasha Hunter, Tabetha commanded attention.
Needless to say Tabetha Hernandez deservedly landed in the top spot, earning her IPL Pro Card in the process. Shout out to Antonia Grafton (2nd), Vanessa Santibanez (3rd), Katherine Velazquez (4th) and Anna Ramirez Martin (5th) who rounded out the top five.
AND, with a total combined score of 207 points (out of a max 240) Tabetha was not only the highest scoring Bikini competitor, but the highest scoring competitor of the entire show. Wow. With what Tabetha Hernandez is bringing to the IPL Bikini stage there is no doubt she will give top Pros a run for the money.
Judi Mcaskill OWNED the Bikini Masters division at the 2018 IPL SoCal Classic. In Masters 40+ Mcaskill won all six scored categories: Muscularity, Symmetry, Conditioning, Posing & Presentation, Suit and Model Walk at Finals. This clean sweep landed Judi in 1st place and earned her the coveted IPL Bikini Masters Pro Card. Shout out to Cinthia Marcos, Carmen Las, Ruby Oryega and Angela Belew who rounded out the top five.
“…THE FACT THAT I WON AND QUALIFIED PRO IN MY DIVISION AND TOOK OVERALL MASTERS WAS BOTH INCREDIBLE AND HUMBLING!!!”
Then it was on the Masters Overall. In the end, Judi dominated the pose down and pushed ahead for the Overall Bikini Masters title. It will be exciting to see Judi Mcaskill share the Pro stage with IPL Bikini Masters Pros!
It all came together for top Bikini contender Jenneth Logana at the 2018 3rd Annual IPL California Championship on May 5th in Sacramento, CA. After landing in 2nd place at her two previous IPL Bikini Masters 40+ outings, Jenneth Logana finally earned the number one spot. That being said, it certainly was tight at the top of the class.
“I WAS ON CLOUD NINE. I WAS OVERWHELMED WITH EMOTIONS. I HONESTLY DIDN’T EXPECT IT. I WAS SHOCKED. “
Compared to Jenneth’s 170 point score total… 2nd place finisher Katherine Thomas earned 165 and 3rd place Lisa Huntsinger earned 164. However, close scores or not, 1st is 1st as Jenneth was welcomed into the IPL Pro leagues.
AND, as a cherry on top, also earned the Bikini Masters Overall title. It will be exciting to see Jenneth Logana hit the Masters Pro stage. And considering Logana has landed a 2nd place spot and a 3rd place spot in Bikini Open, that Open Pro Card could very well be in her future!
“AFTER ALL, YOU’VE WORKED HARD ON YOURSELF. SO, HAVE FUN SHOWCASING YOUR HARD WORK!”
It was like a dream that suddenly came true! It was something I worked so hard for. Then, there I was, last one standing! It was the most humbling, rewarding feeling. I couldn’t believe it! Tears of absolute joy!!!
TIPS: Always remember you are in competition with yourself. Give it your all everyday, even if you are not feeling it. Most importantly, trust the process and enjoy your journey! Walk out on stage and rock it! After all, you’ve worked hard on yourself. So, have fun showcasing your hard work!
WHAT’S NEXT? To work for my IPL Sports Model and Fitness Angels Pro Cards, and of course continue competing as a Pro Bikini Athlete! My vision is to slowly share my story and inspire people with my passion through fitness!

“…LEARN ABOUT WAYS TO NOT MAKE IT BORING. CHANGE THINGS UP WHILE STAYING WITHIN YOUR PLAN…”
It was an amazing feeling! My hope was to just maybe place at my first competition. But the fact that I won and qualified as a Pro in my division AND took Overall Masters was both incredible and humbling!!!
TIPS: Stay consistent with your training and prep. Enjoy the process. What I mean is learn about ways to not make it boring. Change things up while staying within your plan and try different types of workouts. Never be afraid to ask questions to your coach and/or other competitors.
WHAT’S NEXT? I will be competing in my first Pro competition for Bikini Masters. Also I have added competing in both Masters 40+ Sports Model and Athletic divisions. I am excited to learn new posing for both of them.

“WHEN YOU TAKE THOSE STEPS OUT ON STAGE, MUSTER ALL THE CONFIDENCE YOU HAVE. ENJOY YOUR TIME ON STAGE.”
I was on cloud nine. I was overwhelmed with emotions. I honestly didn’t expect it. I was shocked. Winning my Pro Card in addition to winning “Overall” gave me more sense of confidence and satisfaction.
TIPS: You have to set a realistic goal with a realistic plan and stick to it. Find a coach that you’re confident in and let them guide you to your goal. On competition day, when you take those steps out on stage, muster all the confidence you have. You’ve reached your goal. Enjoy your time on stage.
WHAT’S NEXT? Definitely more competitions. I am also looking into coaching others. I want to share my knowledge and experience that can benefit them for a lifetime. It feels really good to help others achieve their fitness goals.
