Model Kate Upton's swimsuit cover is the Sports Illustrated's 2013 cover, and Reuters reports on Feb. 12, 2013 the photo shoot was difficult for the 20-year-old to do. "It was freezing. I'm from Florida, so it wasn't easy for me," said Upton, who posed for the cover while in Antarctica in only a white bikini bottom and an unzipped white parka. "When I came back, I was losing my hearing and eyesight. My body was shutting down because it was working so hard to keep me warm."
According to M.J. Day, a senior editor for SI, temperatures were as low as 24 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chills as low as -20 Fahrenheit. "She braved six days in a bikini while we were head-to-toe in jackets," said Day. "No one will ever accuse her of being a whiny model, ever."

"Why is Kate upton so fat...and she still makes it on the cover of SI," tweets Benny Salzbrun.
"What is the obsession with Kate Upton? She's a tall chick with bad legs and saggy boobs. Pancake status. Like a trash bag with water in it," tweets Doug.
Said Upton, in response to scathing criticism about her weight by the pro-skinny site Skinny Gossip ,"I’m not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life, and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable."
