Kate Upton has landed the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue for the second year in a row, according to this leaked image (which we’re not going to display here because SI is notoriously litigious about these things). The cover photo appears to be from that “secret” Antarctic shoot that took place a few months ago, although there’s no sign of a man dressed in a plush Oreo outfit (but just imagine what treasures those pages may hold). Upton told the Cut last week that she finds out about the cover star “on David Letterman, like the rest of the world,” but added, “I feel like I should get a little hint, like a preview or something.” Consider this further proof that when you’re Kate Upton, your wish is the Internet’s command.
