So, yesterday we featured a Victoria's Secret model at the top of the Clicks and asked you to help us ID her. The e-mails came pouring in. Four of you said it was Doutzen Kroes and three of you said it was Karolina Kurkova. Other names sent to us were Adriana Karembeu, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lindsay Ellingson and Natalia Polevshchikova. All of those folks were wrong. As several of you correctly noted, the model was Candice Swanepoel. And right on cue, CoEd Magazine has put together a Candice Swawnepoel photo gallery.

We're always flattered when blogs mention us, so even though we just got compared to Vanessa Minnillo while other blogs were compared to the likes of major heavyweights such as Erin Andrews, Megan Fox, Jessica Simpson, Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian and our current favorite chick, Blake Lively, we'll just take it and say thanks.
