It’s clear that Olivia Ponton feels at home in a bikini. Not only has the SI Swimsuit model participated in two stunning magazine features, including her rookie photoshoot in Montenegro last year and one in Dominica for this year’s magazine, she’s regularly clad in swimsuits for her social media content, too.

On Dec. 5, the the 21-year-old model and influencer shared a carousel of Instagram snaps on the beach that showcased her natural beauty. Clad in a strapless black bikini, Ponton squatted in shallow water in the cover pic while pursing her lips for the camera. In additional images, she curled up in the water and sprawled out in the sand in gorgeous photos captured by Nikee Olivera.

Ponton captioned the slides with a quirky message: “i wanna go watch the new hunger games movie tbh.”

Several of the model’s 3.1 million followers on the platform chimed in to the comments section to hype her up.

“😍,” friend and 2024 SI Swimsuit rookie Olivia Dunne wrote, to which Ponton sweetly responded, “i love you.”

“How can one person be so perfect,” Megan Hassa inquired. “also that second one 🙌.”

“genuinely the hottest person i’ve ever seen 😍😍,” someone else applauded.

“simple all american beauty ❤️,” Lily Chee gushed.

Ponton then followed up and shared a TikTok the next day that indicated she went and saw The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes—and was not totally thrilled with it. “pls send help im lost,” she captioned the video.
