It's been a long, hot summer—particularly because of all the sizzling celebrity bikini bodies we've seen this year!

Earlier this season, we presented you with the tough task of deciding which of the many bathing beauties we've spotted at the beach this year had the ultimate bikini body.

Week by week, you whittled down a whopping 48 stunning stars down to an elite set of three, including Extra! television personality Maria Menounos, curvaceous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl Kate Upton and Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet.

It was a fierce face-off, but in the end the winning lady took the top spot by a sizeable nine percent!

So without further ado, the winner of our summer's best bikini body game is…

Maria Menounos!

That's right, the gal who makes a living out of interviewing celebrities, beat out stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba and the popular Upton, who breezed past her competition throughout the game—until the final round, that is.

In fact, not only did Upton lose out to the Greek beauty in the final round, but she also came in behind Burke-Charvet. Here's how you voted in the final round

Maria Menounos 45 percent
Brooke Burke-Charvet 36 percent
Kate Upton 19 percent

While some may be surprised that Menounos beat out Upton, who has famously made a living out of modeling itty-bitty two-pieces, that's the beauty of the bikini game—you got to decide!

On that note, we'd like to thank everyone who voted! And we haven't forgotten about the lucky gals who will receive a chic Lisa Kelly swimwear prize for playing and tweeting the game. We'll reach out directly to the winners via Twitter and post the results here on Friday, Aug. 23.
