On Jan 7, 20 swimsuit-clad ladies from Beijing and Guangzhou descended on the tropical beaches of Sanya, Hainan for grueling physical training and a chance at earning a high salary guarding celebrities and executives.

The young women, with diverse educational backgrounds and professions ranging from finance to circus acrobatics and runway modeling, are competing for an opportunity to have further training at the International Security Academy in Israel.

The candidates endured physically challenging courses, like carrying weights, boxing, hostage rescue and island survival, for 20 hours a day, which left them only one hour for meals and three for sleep.
