The 2016 SI Swimsuit cover reveal is almost here, and we have backstage access to all the festivities.

Sports Illustrated, IMG and TNT are teaming up for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 Revealed, a first-of-its-kind broadcast event which includes the highly-anticipated unveiling of the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover. Actor, comedian and recording artist Nick Cannon and The Librarians star and Skin Wars host Rebecca Romijn will host the festivities, and help us celebrate the amazing women in this yearโ€™s edition.

The show will air on TNT Saturday night immediately following the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk competition and will feature our 20+ SI Swimsuit models, behind-the-scenes footage from our exotic shoots, and the final six contestants in the nationwide search for the next SI Swimsuit model. We arrived early to capture all the pre-show excitement.
