Doppelgangers

Rick, of Alexandria, Va., asks, "I am just curious as to what the criteria are for the LLOD? I mean, hot, of course, but how do you pick it?" Rick, I'm glad you asked this question because it allows me to explain something to the many readers who send in LLOD requests and then get mad at me because I don't honor them. Most of the women chosen come from e-mail suggestions. The only criteria a submission has to fit is that I have to be able to find a picture of them on the wire services (AP and Getty Images) SI has access to. If we don't have rights to a photo of the woman, then I can't feature them. Other than that, there isn't a set list of criteria. I use your suggestions most days. Some days, like today, I just feature someone who I want to feature, like model Lucy Pinder.
