No one wants a frostbitten figure!
But Kate Upton dared to bare in freezing temperatures recently for a Sports Illustrated photo shoot in Antarctica, the results of which landed her the coveted cover of the mag’s Swimsuit Edition for the second year in a row.
“Keep your clothes on,” the voluptuous vixen recommend to Antarctic travelers in a conference call with FoxNews.com. “But go! It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been!”
Sports Illustrated teamed up with the Travel Channel, which filmed the magazine’s trek to the Antarctic and to the other continents featured in this year’s Swimsuit Edition.
“I definitely knew we were the first fashion magazine ever to shoot down near the South Pole which put more pressure on the situation because we didn’t know if we would go down there and it would be a blizzard the entire time, or if we were going to be able to even get one photo,” the stunner said.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Upton has received criticism for her weight. But the bodacious beauty takes it all in stride.
“Everyone has the right to their own opinion,” she told the New York Post. “I am in a good place in my career, so it’s all right.”
“Sports Illustrated: The Making of a Swimsuit ’13 – 7 Continents, 17 Wonders” premieres on the Travel Channel Sunday, February 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
