Fox Sports host Holly Sonders wore a blue bikini on a beach with her fiance and a group of children for her latest Instagram update. She also included a caption that discussed the fight against racism.
Unlike many social media influencers, the 33-year-old decided against posting a plain black box online. She instead uploaded an image of her and fiance Dave Oancea — who is best-known as “Vegas Dave” — on the beach. The photo was uploaded the day after the #BlackoutTuesday social media trend took place. Although she rocked a swimsuit, the model wanted the focus to be on her message instead of her body.
Sonders believed she was putting her platform to better use by posting more than a black box. In the snap, she sat down on a patio chair as Vegas Dave stood behind her. They were surrounded by five children. Three of the little ones huddled close to the fitness model, and one of the girls flashed a peace sign to the camera. Vegas Dave wrapped his arm around one of the boys in the background and another stood beside him. Two other adults sat to the side and faced the lens for the pic.
Sonders wore her long brown hair down and rocked a blue bikini top with a pair of sunglasses. Her fiance, meanwhile, wore a white tank top and a pair of shades. Her caption mentioned the black boxes being posted across the social media platform. She also discussed the importance of inclusion and instilling it into children, adding the hashtag “#includeeveryone.”
The former Michigan State University golfer received over 2,200 likes from her 475,000 Instagram followers in just over two hours after the post went live. Sonders had nearly 100 comments in short order as followers responded to her caption. Popular Instagram model Toochi Kash showed her support by posting several “100” emoji.
“Finally someone posts something of substance,” one fan wrote.
“You are correct Holly. Racism can only be defeated by good parenting IMO,” another added.
Several users added their thoughts about people who shared the black boxes on Tuesday.
“Today is ‘Those boxes changed nothing Wednesday’. I guess it makes people feel like they made a change with minimal effort,” a follower commented.
“Couldn’t agree more. Everyone posted their Blackout Pic on Instagram yesterday. What are you doing today?” a fourth person asked.
As covered by The Inquisitr, Sonders posted a different type of swimsuit photo late last month. She looked stunning in a red one-piece while posing poolside.

Just like the gym…you have to put in work with your skin to keep it youthful and healthy. I have LESS lines and wrinkles at age 32 then I did at at 22. I rotate two laser treatments that are literally the Fountain of Youth and totally rebuild collagen and turn the clock wayyyyy back…and they actually WORK. Ask me what they are/ where you can get them done by clicking the link in my bio.
