Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2012 : Kate Upton
TMZ got their hands on the issue early. It seems SI standards continue to plummet. All you need is boyfriend more famous than yourself and the cover is all yours. Kate is the rumored girlfriend of NFL Quarerback Mark Sanchez.

From TMZ.com

Anne V. gets the shaft again. She should get the cover over any of these newer girls.

Between the ill-fitting swimsuit and her hair roots it's like she's posing for the cover of a Girls Gone Wild video.

oh my word i don't usually pay attention to sports illustrated but i'm so disturbed by this cover that i feel compelled to comment. why are her boobs so smushy? it looks like their up against a panel of glass or something highly disturbing.

it looks very raunchy and so cheap!!! So not what SI used to do back in the day!! It looks porno-ish and not sultry sexy. The swimsuit itself is ridiculous, sooooo bad!

This..

Who wears bikinis like that anymore?

It's so early 90s.. and that hair and lipstick only make things worse.

I agree about Anne V. or even Cintia being the only models that could bring back a grain of class to this. But SI is probably on thin financial ice so this is quite possibly the best way to cater to the only public that will buy this at this point.

What the heck?! What happened to the cover going to girls with longevity (and class)?! I will flat out say Kate did not deserve this.

This is so unbelievably cheap and I actually feel bad that Kate had to be degraded like that. This cover should have gone to Anne V (or Cintia).

I think Jessica White is overdue for a cover as well.

Sports Illustrated used to be sexy without being trashy, but in recent years that's all just gone down the drain. From 2008 onwards it's been girls with huge boobs in ill-fitting bikinis. This is no different.

If it is judged on the scale of a normal fashion magazine cover, it sucks. However, if it is judged on the sleazy, lad mag, Maxim/Playboy scale, it works fine. It'll certainly get the attention of the hormone-crazed 18-30 male loser audience. Kate Upton is quite popular among them. It's unfortunate, but that is the audience they are targeting, and it will work for them. As far as the model selection itself, Upton is a poor, if somewhat expected choice. Hilary Rhoda, Anne Vyalitsyna, and Cintia Dicker are all far more deserving and they all would have added a touch of class to the cover, but they don't have the same sort of appeal to the drooling masses that Upton does; thus, they don't get it. Overall, a trashy cover for an increasingly trashy magazine.

Is this really still considered a premiere gig anymore? It seems like the last few covergirls have gone on to not much else.

Ew, that's so nasty Even Maxim or FHM covers are more tasteful than this.
