SI Swimsuit 2017 casting calls are under way, and we're already totally smitten by the beautiful babes coming through our office. 

As we sift through hundreds of gorgeous ladies to fill out our next rookie class, we're hoping you'll follow along! When we meet SI Swimsuit hopefuls, you will, too. So what are you waiting for? 

Next up is Russian bombshell Masha Gutic! You may recognize this blonde beauty from her lingerie and swimwear work, but it's her love of animals and a hilarious story about shooting couture with a goat on set that had us falling in love. 

Get to know more about this gorgeous, animal-loving model in the video above, and be sure to keep coming back to Swim Daily for more 2017 SI Swimsuit Casting Calls!
