If you've never heard of Kate Upton before, get ready to become better acquainted.
The 19-year-old graces the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which "The Late Show with David Letterman" unveiled Monday on a billboard across from the Ed Sullivan Theater.

Upton and nine other models from the issue also stopped by Letterman's late night show to help him deliver his top 10 list, which focused on why this year's Swimsuit Issue is the best ever.
One cryptic reason was that the magazine apparently includes ten models, but only nine swimsuits, while another was, "It's not in 3-D, but it looks like it is."
Cover star Upton offered this enticing reason: "The art department was able to airbrush my mustache."
Clearly this is a woman with a sense of humor, and we'll likely get to see more of it when the 19-year-old returns to "Late Show with David Letterman" tonight for an interview.
In the meantime, watch the clip of Upton hitting her dougie, which turned the model/actress into something of a viral video star:
Upton, who had a role in 2011's "Tower Heist," will also appear in the Farrelly brothers' "Three Stooges" in April.
of a lifetime and beauty at the same time however i do agree this is not going to last forever...tyra, christie, cindy all took on other careers let's hope she has another plan after this.
She's georgous...what will she be doing at 50 years old...she needs to learn another career... i am not a jealous person by nature all i'm saying hope she has another career for her future, this is just a fantasy career right now.
One of the most beautiful girls in the modelling world and continued success too her.
she got the d*m call for a go at one of the greatest inv bking firms in history....the sports illustrated girl is amazing i hope she does well in her career...its very difficult too look that beautiful.
run those motors tonight enjoy everyone.
you've called this women fat, ugly, no good and poor....doesn't matter because GS called her not you.
the model is beautiful
but in the end they called moi...didn't they....be positive and be happy with your lives people..
you only have one life too live enjoy it. thanks for the afternoon scoops it was fantastic.
no reason to run the car motor....i've been called fat and old 1 million times on these blogs-
but it can run a hck motor like nobodys business.
she may be cute and size 1....but she's not a goldman babyl... the 50 year old is making her relationship decisions shortly...50 plans well.....
I am looking forward reading more of your articles.
I agree with you on most points.
The subject is well covered.
I encourage you continue writing.
I appreciate reading your blog.
go for it...make sure i'm there when your in action actually talking to that person-i'd love too see it-
i'm not scared of it-everyone else is.
Personally I'm not crazy about her face, but her body is awesome.
19 YRS OLD....AM I GETTING THIS? 19YRS.OLD.....DO WE HAVE A BRAIN.....
OLD MEN WANT YOUNG GIRLS,OR LADIES.....SO STARS THIS IS IT ONCE YOU
ARE OVER 30 LOOK OUT YOU ARE TO BE REPLACED WITH A BRAINLESS BIMBO
THIS IS HOW IT GOES.....THIS IS THE TRUTH 19YRS.OLD NOT USING HER BRAIN
BUT HER BODY....AND ONLY FOR LITTLE OLD OLD MEN
forget about it, not revealing enough... way too much cloths for my imagination.......see, still limp.
this is good, it is very good...head rushing stuff. thank you letterman
Barstool sports has the Si cover before letterman introduced it. VIVA LA Stool!
I don't understand the people who are referring to this young woman as "fat". Honestly, I think she could gain 20-30 lbs and still look wonderful. People are too judgmental about weight. If an individual is healthy and happy, no one should tell them they aren't good enough just because they don't fit someone else's ideal image.
Two things: those aren't real, and you can't keep going smaller on the bikini.
lol, what a typical comment from a woman. "blah blah, fake blah blah...". i bet if that was you looking that hot, you'd be dancing your t i t t i e s off right now.
Is it me, or is Letterman beginning to look more and more like Herbert, the creepy old guy on the Simpsons?
Mmmmmmmmm whoever drinks the most tylenol pm wins
Nothing special. Kinda a busted face too.
hmmm....i didn't look at her face. who knows.
LOL, SI Smimsuit edition stop being relevant in like the late '80's...
Her navel is up by her rib cage. Looks like someone got their entire abdomen lifted, or there was some pretty poor airbrushing/editing on the magazine's part.
America, stop idolizing surface features. Go deeper than skin to find a person's beauty!
Although she does have nice teeth!
Canada Dry IS THAT YOURE WAY OF SAYING CANADA'S BROADS ARE FUGLY? LOLOLOLOL
sure, soon as i'm done with getting to know the outside beauty....
Beautiful woman. It's nice to see they picked someone that doesn't have the body of a 10 year old boy.
I'd pee on her face
hmmm......interesting.... is that like marking your territory?
woooo shake those lil funbagggssss yes!!!!
All you people that are complaining that she has no class for being on the cover, the swimsuit is too small, her parents must be proud, blah blah blah, need to get a life....Stop being haters! Stop being jealous! If you don't like it then don't buy the issue or don't buy the swimsuit! ITS HER LIFE AND SHE CAN DO WHATEVER SHE FEELS LIKE!
19 and a girls claim to fame is showing off her body in a bikini. And women wonder why guys are just looking at them for their bodies. Don't blame us ladies, it's these people that keep pushing it into our faces. She is beautiful without question but what else is there? What man can date her and she won't question his motives ? Will she even date a "commoner" a guy that will truley love her but is not famous or rich? Time will tell...
That has to be the worse swimsuit cover I have seen yet! That suit obviously is WAY TOO small for her, not flattering whatsoever, who the hell would ever where that ugly suit! Sorry don't like.......Nothing special about that photo. God I remember back when Kathy Ireland was on the cover and some others from the 90's now those girls were hot and had a real swimsuit on!
Looks like she can't afford a properly sized bikini. No thanks!
Way too much fat rolls for me, thanks.
Fat rolls? Ya gotta be kidding.
lol, joe. that's a little retarded for a comment for me.
Looks like a Tiger Woods Victim
What's the point of even wearing the bikini bottom in this image? Ridiculous! Not to mention, a pretty boring image photography wise.
her boob is only halfway covered. Great picture, but it looks like her swim suit top is three sizes toooooooo small. Tacky, actually. I LOVE the swimsuit edition and that's the worst cover I have seen in YEARS. I reallly can't believe that they felt THIS picture was the "CREAM OF THE CROP" to get a cover shot! Bad, SI, JUST BAD.
Having been a collector of the edition since Kathy Ireland did the 25th Anniversary cover in 1989, SI has been going down hill since Jule Campbell left.
This cover is really lackluster, and sorry Kate Upton really is not what I think of when I think of the SI women.
SI Swimsuit ed. is just not what it used to be.
Why does anyone care about this? Has nobody ever heard of the internet? its full of porn...
LOL, yeah that's why I've been saying SI Swimsuit edition stopped being relevant years ago. Way overrated...
These aren't really 'super models' – none of them grace the Fashion runwaya of New York & Europe = too busty!! The are more like Playboy bunny models.....wanna lap dance?
Maybe you should actually look them up instead of assuming. Like most ppl are probably assuming that you're just a lonely old hag who couldn't fit one leg into a swimsuit, let along critique someone who can. Just assuming, not saying any of it is true....just like your stupid comment. SMH at bitter as5 ppl.
Can't typeeee right noww.......busy
Her body's bangin', but she's also bangin' Mark Sanchez. Instant turn-off.
Not a good shot. Suit is clumsy looking, she is to thick in the waist, and her hair looks weak. Not up to SI speed.
Well with SI they are not trying to be like Victoria's Secret of having super skinny looking girls in their edition. SI has not ever had super skinny looking girls.
I give high respects to SI in that respect.
I think she is a rather poor example of a female form. There is nothing "sporty" about her. No muscle development, skinny arms, weak core, signs of emaciation in her entire structure. Boobs are droopy because of under-developed pecs. Her jaw stands out because of a weak neck. She's simply wearing pasties with straps. Separate the wheat from the chaff, fellas!
Skinny arms and a flat stomach are feminine. Most guys are not into muscular chicks.
Beautiful YES. Talented ummm NO. Swimsuit HORRIBLE. There are so many more beautiful pics of her in a suit that fits.
Not impressed – you think she would be a lot firmer for a 19 year old. Without the suit or holding them they would be at her belly button.
Thank you, Lord for the female form. (sigh)
Looks like another bleached blonde bimbo. I bet she rode to the photo shoot in a Z-28 too.
I would eat her bum.
You can! After me!
And work my way up from there :) Tasty!
Of course there's photoshopping going on here (there was also photoshopping when you took your senior pictures) but I have seen pictures of Kate Upton in public and she is still gorgeous.
She is really pretty. I remember seeing her in some soda commercial. She looks great but is showing way to much va jay jay lol I would love to have that upper body!
I'd love to have her upper body too.
Give me the motorboat!!!!
She might as well not have any bottoms on.......
Oh, but it is so-oo much more sensuous when the imagination is permitted to wonder exactly what is not showning.
Pretty girl, but they could have found a more becoming bathing suit to put on her. That one does not do her justice.
HER NEXT BIG STEP....PORN MOVIES
I think her belly button is WAY too high........LOL
Yeah, and her boo bs are way to big. And her stomach is way to flat. And she looks way too hot in that bikini.
Any other stupid complaints?
I don't care what she thinks, or if she thinks. She just needs to shake it.
She was much prettier before she was "discovered". What a difference becoming a celebrity makes.
Oh...how I wish I were Pliny The Younger.
Very nice! LOL LOL
The waxing thing does nothing for me.
It sure does for me!!
It's better than a boosh up to the navel.
I broke up with a girl recently because she waxed it all off. No thanks, I like my women to look like women!
I agree with you if a woman shaves her labia fine, makes them more comfortable whatever. But they need atleast a landing strip otherwise they're making you a child molester, and it gives you something to aim for when you pull out otherwise there's no point assuming they're on the pill.
Nice to see a swimsuit model that does not look like a 12 year old Ethiopian refugee.
Exactly, its women like Kate Upton and Sophia Vergara most men are attracted too. We do not want to date an ironing board.
That has been one respectable thing regarding SI swimsuit ed. The models have not really ever been super skinny. SI usually wanted a more healthy looking woman in their mag.
I'll take the ironing board over this fat thing any day !
Makes sense as no woman would want you. Enjoy the ironing board.
I AM AN OLD DOG – ALL I CAN SAY – I WAS BORN FAR TO EARLY.
This is awesome! It's fantastic that women are featured in a sports mag wearing next to nothing. I mean, us silly women don't know a thing about sports. We don't play them, don't care about them, we only know how to strip down and stand there and do...nothing else. Thank you Sports Illustrated!
WOW I luv to give her STD in her bott! <3
Actually, Kate is very talented. She an accomplished equestrienne, on top of being very smart and, obviously, gorgeous. Way to go Katie!
She ain't on the cover because of her equestrian skills.
Riding may have been involved though.
She is very talented. Thank you very much, Boris.
Sports Illustrated?? RELLY?? I thought this was Playboy!! I mean seriously!! Why bother wearing anything at all?? I don't care who you are- it's ridiculous! Gone are the day of great covers!!! No- not a hater just saying Sports Illustrated Covers used to be sooo much better!
Sorry- should read REALLY!!! Oops!
You do realize this is the Swimsuit Issue don't you? SI doesn't do this every month like Playboy does.
I wonder how many of you complaining out there wouldn't gladly be in her her shoes. She's a very attractive young woman with a great body- take it for what it's worth. Would you rather see a 2/3rds. naked Rosie O'Donnell ?
Give it a break and quit peein' in everyones Cheerios.
Aooooooooooooooooooga! Egads that is as close to perfection as there is on this planet.
Perfection??? It's called Photoshop!! No I'm not jealouse! Just rooted in reality!
I think the body (even in that hideous suit) is good but yeah, her skin is definitely photo shopped. Smooth as rubber.
Could NOT agree more!! Why can't ALL women look like that???
yeah right. you'd kill to be her. go take your jealousy out on a brick wall.
Good for her! @Henry..lol
I think the covers looked far better when the women on them left a little something to the imagination. Maybe I'm getting old at 32 (hah), but the models seem to be getting more and more naked each year. I don't need to see somebody's barely-covered, photoshopped hoo-hah, tyvm.
I agree with you. This suit is not flattering to her. It sqooshes her up top and gives her waist no definition. She has a good body but this suit is not attractive. It looks like Walmart to me. She would actually look better in a nicely cut suit or naked.
I don't want to have to use my imagination.
Crys: I'm the same age as you, and have to disagree. For example, here is a link to the cover from 1997, when we were 18 years old:
The bikini is pretty much the same exact size with thinner straps.
...can't agree more – not the best photo = vulgar and suggestive but not in a good way....alas...
You are just jealous that she is so tallented. Quit being a hater and troll.
LOL WAIT A MINUTE... did you just say she had talent??? Being a supermodel takes a certain diet, fitness, and height... but please don't confuse that with TALENT.
"With her horse Roanie Pony, she won three APHA Reserve World Championships, in 13 and Under Western Riding, 13 and Under Horsemanship and 14–18 Western Riding and named the 13 and Under Reserve All-Around Champion at the APHA World Championship Show, giving her a total of five championships. In addition, Upton ended up third overall on the APHA youth Top Twenty. With a second horse, Zipped, she won 14–18 Western Riding and was top 5 in 14–18 Horsemanship and 14–18 Western Pleasure in 2009"
What have you done?
As if horsemanship contributes to society. BTW, nice name "derp." We can sure see what kind of intelligent person you are based on that alias.
Nice, that means she knows how to ride... oh yeah, I agree with @derp, not talent. I mean if you want to say it is talent, then Kim K. is talented for making tapes with Ray J.
Ok, so her being an expert at riding horses isn't talent? Shoot. Then we might as well say nothing is talent then. Some people will hate on just about anything. Why don't they just hate themselves and eat a bullet?
How exciting another photo shopped wh@re,ho hum.
That's for sale? How much?
Wow...that's a little harsh. Didn't realize that being a model qualified as "whoring" You are so enlightened!
How do you photoshop streaming video? Are you saying that she is a CGI character? .... DAMN she is fine.
Kate, I'm sure your father and mother and proud of you. What a legacy they have left for their grandkids. Mon and Dad call your proctologist. Perhaps he can help you find your heads.
Your just jealous that your not tapping that.
OWNED BY DICK.
So this is what Whirlpool is delivering these days. Yes it is true Kate Upton who is the niece of Fred Upton aka congressman in MI. But also part of the UPTON Family who were the founders of what is now known as Whirlpool.
Sir, change your name. You use my trademarked text, MAN within your name. I'm taking back your MAN card. You don't deserve it!
WOOOOOOO she needs to smooch with me ! That would be A-OK !
She'll rot in hell for her behaviour
Far too much fat rolls for my tastes, thanks. I hate fat !
"She'll rot in hell for her behaviour"
For being photographed in a bathing suit ?
Wow, that's judgmental.
typical jealous female remark from just a standard chick.
Standard chick.... you're a standard chick and saying that? lol...how is that standard? what you should be is a nun. lol
