Hotties get
TV show chance

YOU MIGHT have noticed an influx of local hotties in Waikiki on Saturday afternoon. Producers for the television show "Beauties of the Beach" were on the prowl for what they described as "the most stunning people on the sand and in the surf."

Contestants chosen from the open casting call, which also took place at Ala Moana Center on Saturday, will move on to compete in categories including "Wet," "Sweat," "Skimp" and "Style." Island viewers will be given the chance to help select they winner by voting for their favorite beauty online.

And if the contestants aren't your type, there are always the hosts to check out -- former Miss Hawaii Alicia Michioka and 93.1 KQMQ weekend jock Da Lion of Judah were tapped for those duties ...

DURING THE first few minutes of the Evanescence show Friday night, I thought I was the only one who noticed it. The pit was pumping at Pipeline Cafe, and Amy Lee did look pretty good in a tank top on stage. But the signs were there, and by the end of the concert, I'd heard a number of people wondering aloud if they'd been treated to a Milli Vanilli-style performance ...

I GUESS my excitement got the best of me last week; the next "Trip the Lights" with Kavet the Catalyst takes place this Friday at Studio 1. If you're a fan of early '90s hip-hop, get down with the get-down and check this party out ...

AND SPEAKING of Studio 1, the debut of "Club 1" on Saturday was pretty much what I expected. DJs G-Dog and SubZero tore it up with a ton of old school you won't hear in any of the nightclubs, while Flash Hansen and Russ Inouye seemed to spend most of the night roaming around saying hello to everyone.

It should be interesting to see how this event develops over the next few weeks -- the first night seemed to attract a lot of folks who wanted to be seen on the scene. And once I spotted The Shortest Night-life Writer in Honolulu walking through the front door, I knew Flash and the gang had promoted this one to death ...

SOME FOLKS thought it was too good to be true, and now it seems they were right: DJ QBert and Rahzel on stage together in Honolulu would have easily been one of the highlights of the summer, if not all of 2003. Unfortunately, G-Spot informed me last week that things had been postponed indefinitely ...
