Sports Illustrated cover girl and absolute bombshell Kate Upton has had a busy couple of days, what with her date with Arnold Palmer, getting spanked on stage by Flo Rida, and possibly gearing up for prom tomorrow.
Upton’s busy week began with a much-publicized lunch date with golfing legend Arnold Palmer. The date happened on Thursday and ended with an innocent kiss from the 83-year-old on the 20-year-old swimsuit model’s cheek.
She was visiting Palmer at his tournament in Bay Hill, but many publications were left to wonder, what’s the connection between the two?
Word is that Lisa Benson, Kate Upton’s manager, is the key to the lunch date. Benson’s father used to play golf with Palmer at the Latrobe Country Club. Benson was on the lookout for a job at IMG, which represents sports and entertainment figures, as well as models. Her dad talked to Palmer, who arranged an interview through IMG. She got the job and later connected with Upton.
Upton wanted to meet Palmer and talk about the work he is doing with local hospitals. She’s also planning to take part in a social media campaign involving the “Arnold Palmer” drink, a mix of iced tea and lemonade.
Thus, a legendary lunch date was born.

During Wednesday’s Samsung launch party in New York City, Upton shared the stage with rapper Flo Rida. There, she elected to dance along with “Low,” and turned around so that Flo Rida could give “that big booty a smack,” as the song goes.
It hasn’t quite achieved the viral power of Upton’s sexy “Cat Daddy” dance, but it’s interesting enough that we have embedded it below.
Then, of course, there’s Upton’s also-much-publicized prom date with viral hero Jake Davidson, a humble high school senior who just wanted a shot at the big leagues. Last we heard, Upton wanted to go to prom with Davidson, but had to check her schedule. It looks like she might be going after all, but neither Upton nor Davidson have exactly confirmed the news on Twitter.
Prom for Davidson is March 23 (tomorrow), so we’ll let you know what happens.
And there’s your Kate Upton update for the week.
