The end is here! It's time to announce our FINAL SI Swimsuit 2016 Rookie! So far you've met four absolute sunners — Barbara Palvin, Ashley Graham, Bo, and Sofia Resing — and we can assure you that you won't be disappointed today. So get ready to fall in love with Rookie #5: Tanya Mityushina!
Tanya, a now-LA based model, comes to us from Russia, and is best known for her work with major brands like GUESS, Bebe and Victoria's Secret. And while we're still having visions of her lingerie-clad Intimissimi shoots (her casting call homework was a real downer...NOT), we know she's going to look even hotter on the pages of SI Swimsuit 2016!
The SI Swimsuit 2016 party kicks off on Saturday with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 Revealed, a first-of-its-kind broadcast event that will air on TNT Saturday night after NBA All-Star Weekend. The roll-out continues next week with SI Swimsuit Fan Festivals in New York City (Feb. 15-16) and Miami (Feb. 17-18), where the SI Swimsuit faithful can meet their favorite models, get autographs, win prizes, and more.
Get to know Tanya a little bit better with these five fun facts:
1. She's mastered the sultry stare.
2. She always has time for a selfie.
3. Her laundry is sexier than yours.
4. She appreciates fine art.
5. Sometimes she just can't keep a straight face.
