If you look at no other picture today check out Kate Upton’s cover shot for the upcoming 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The big reveal was meant to be shown off tonight on The Late Show With David Letterman but a blogger got their hands on the cover and let it be known to the world.
While SI isn’t commenting about the leak we think they don’t mind guys all over the world ogling over Kate Upton’s bikini photo while thinking about heading out to buy a copy when it hits the newsstand.
You might recall that the 19-year-old model made her debut in Sports Illustrated last year in the body paint section of SI’s swimsuit issue.
Since that time Kate Upton has modeled for Victoria’s Secret and she was featured as “The Woman of Summer” by Esquire in 2011.
Upton has recently also appeared in the Brett Ratner directed movie Tower Height and she’s set for a roll in the Farrelly brothers’ modern retelling of The Tree Stooges.
First shown on Bar Stool Sports site founder David Portnoy didn’t even realize that he started the leak, tweeting:
“Wait did we just leak the Kate Upton SI cover? We’re so good we leak s–t and don’t even know.”
In the meantime we might be in for more from the magazine on David Letterman tonight now that he’s lost the ability to show off the Sports Illustrated cover for the first time.
What do you think of Kate Upton’s turn as the cover model for Sports Illustrated’s 2012 swimsuit issue?
