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 Ukrainian beauty Yara. Our next bombshell was discovered as a teenager and remembers how exciting it was to travel for work and come back to share stories with her childhood friends. Need another reason to adore Yara? She loves peanut butter and cookies as much as we do, so that should definitely seal the deal for you! 

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