Samantha Hoopes Bae Watch

It's official. SI Swimsuit will be in Coney Island on Aug. 28. There will be a fan festival that's free and open to the public, followed up by Action Bronson performing at night. Special bonus: If you say hi to me at the festival and mention Hot Clicks, I'll get a model to make out with you.* And if that isn't reason enough for you to attend, maybe Samantha Hoopes channeling Pamela Anderson with a Baywatch beach run will get you in the mood.

* - Total lie. Not going to happen. But still come and say hi.

Melina Martin: Lovely Lady of the Day

I have a theory that girls whose first and last names begin with the same letter are 10% hotter than girls whose name doesn't (see Anastasia Ashley, Sara Sampaio, Brittany Binger). Melina Martin is another example, and today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery). 

Eight States With Best-Looking Girls

A dating app called Clover put out a list of the eight states with the best-looking girls and it is just awful. I'm from Massachusetts and there's no way in hell we produce hotter girls than Arizona or Florida. So here's my unofficial list: California, Texas, Arizona, Florida, New York, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois.
