The fans have spoken. And we listened! 

So without further ado, we're sharing some never-before-seen footage from Kate Upton's epic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 shoot. Our cover model was shot in beautiful Fiji by photographer Yu Tsai, and as you all know, the images were so incredible that we picked not one, not two, but three covers to celebrate the return of this mega bombshell.

But there's one scene from Kate's shoot that didn't make it into the magazine or her original videos. Shot in the pool at the Vomo Island Resort, Kate steals our hearts, once again, as she stares into the camera while wearing a pastel purple bikini and a vibrant red flower in her hair.
