One of the pinnacles of any swimsuit model’s career is landing on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine. Past cover girls include Chrissy Teigen (Mrs. John Legend), Irina Shayk, Lily Aldridge, and Kate Upton who all went on to have successful modelling careers. This year’s cover has been revealed and the cover girl is Hannah Davis–a 24-year old model who is currently dating baseball legend, Derek Jeter. On the very racy cover, she poses in a nearly micro-bikini, pulling down the bottoms in a very suggestive manner at a blackerry farm in Tennessee. This is a departure from the normal beach shoot the magazine does every year.
When she was told she’d gotten the cover, she burst into tears, saying “I told my mom there was no way I’d get the cover. I told her they do beaches for covers and I’m on a farm. There’s no way. It’s not possible.”
