Ten Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models appeared on "Late Show with David Letterman" to present the Top Ten List on Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 on CBS Television Network. Kate Upton, who is on the cover for the second year in a row, was one of the ten models who appeared tonight. Kate Upton heats up Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover for second year
David Letterman introduced the models and talked about the spoiler that occurred over the weekend. Usually the announcement of the cover model is kept under tight wraps but the news was leaked ruining the surprise. Letterman, tongue in cheek, blamed it on a Chinese hacker.
After the models presented the Top Ten list, a billboard of Kate Upton on the cover of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover was unveiled on the front of the "Late Show" marquee on the front of the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City.
Kate Upton will appear on the show on Tuesday, Feb. 12, to talk to Letterman. Later in the broadcast, Upton posed on the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee under her billboard.
Upton's cover was shot in frigidly cold Antartica. On the cover, Upton wore a white jacket with a fur trimmed hood and white bikini bottoms. Upton is the first woman to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue since Tyra Banks in 1996 and 1997.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models marched onto the stage, wearing mini dresses rather than swimsuits. The models presented the “Top Ten Questions on the Application to Become a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model.”
The ten 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models presenting tonight’s Top Ten List were Kate Upton, Emily DiDonato, Nina Agdal, Ariel Meredith, Chrissy Teigen, Katherine Webb, Hannah Davis, Alyssa Miller, Genevieve Morton and Julie Henderson.
The Top Ten list included number five, read by Alyssa Miller: “Please list your three most recent employers’ measurements”; number four, read by Julie Henderson, “Have you ever used any pose-enhancing drugs?” and number three, read by Genevieve Morton, “Are you willing to visit the elderly at his late night talk show?”
The 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue will hit newsstands tomorrow and is available tonight for digital download on iTunes.
