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 Alice Peneaca. Alice comes to us all the way from Romania and was studying design in university until she was discovered. And while she had a later introduction to SI Swimsuit than most of the girls we see, she admits that once she saw Kate Upton's first cover, her dreams were changed! 

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