She was named Sports Illustrated’s Rookie of the Year in last year’s esteemed swimsuit issue, and now it looks like mega-hottie Kate Upton may be their MVP. Despite only being 19, the Victoria’s Secret Angel is reportedly leading the race to be this year’s SI swimsuit cover girl! The cover is to be unveiled this Monday on the David Letterman Show, but Kate isn’t spilling the beans just yet. “All I can really say is that I’m in the issue,” she told Page Six Magazine. “Fingers crossed!”
Other contenders for the honor include Chrissy Teigen, who is engaged to John Legend, and Adam Levine’s GF Anne V. “There’s no clear front-runner” an SI insider told Page Six. “There’s a lot of talk about Kate in general…It really comes down to the best picture wins.” Would you like to see Kate grace the cover of the mag? Let us know in the poll!
