Sports Illustrated Vs. Victoria's Secret
Isabeli Fontana :: Stewart Shining/SI

Since we get paid by SI, we don't want to be accused of tipping the scales in what we think is the most intense showdown you'll ever see. So we're just gonna copy and paste from "In the world of earth-shattering sexiness, no publications pump out hotter pictures of hotter babes than Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit Issue and the bootylicious pages of the Victoria's Secret catalog. Landing a spot in either one is the Golden Ticket of the modeling world -- only the luckiest and the best make it in. So we've compiled all the models who've been lucky enough to rock the pages of both, and set them up against themselves in the sexiest head-to-head this side of heaven. You decide which publication takes the hotness to a higher level."
