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 flirty Floridian Kathleen Sorbara. This go-getter got her start in modeling at the age of just 12-years-old by sending some webcam photos of herself to modeling agencies around the world. Talk about ambition! When Kathleen isn't modeling, you can find her thrifting and working on her own vintage clothing brand or making some semi nerdy games seem super sexy. Seriously, what's not to love about this Reddit-addicted, brunette bombshell? 

Get to know more about Kathleen in the video above, and be sure to keep coming back to Swim Daily for more 2017 SI Swimsuit Casting Calls!
