BRIANNA Abdoo is set to experience an all-expenses paid week on the Gold Coast in May to compete in Procon Leisure's Maxim Australian Swimsuit Model Competition national final, after taking out the local final at Tannum Sands Hotel Motel.

The 21-year-old Calliope resident said the win was unexpected, given the gorgeous line-up of ladies in the final on Saturday night.
