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 Brazilian bombshell Michella Cruz. This South American cutie was just 14-years-old when she started modeling and she's enjoyed traveling around the world ever since! When she's not on the road for work, you can find Michella at the beach, soaking up the sun. Doesn't sound like a bad life, eh? 

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