Kate Upton

Oops, TMZ Spoils Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

Memba when TMZ published those pics of Kate Upton in a really tiny bikini in the middle of Antarctica??? Turns out we TOTALLY SCOOPED the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition's cover!!!!!

Ooops!!!

Earlier today, the super-secret cover was leaked to the Internet ... featuring Kate in the middle of the frozen antarctic tundra ... a shoot they TRIED to keep under wraps.

We published the pics back in December, right around the time they were shot -- when the temp dipped down to 35 BELOW.

But Kate braved the elements like a stud -- and it totally paid off.

And now we have another reason to look at our candid shots from the glacial "set" ... as if we really needed one.

"Like a stud"? REALLY?? It sounds more like she braved the elements like a WOMAN! Not a prissy girl, a real woman. We tend to be of tougher stock. LOL Read "The Female of the Species" some day!

Brainscan why you kill those murdering liars? Because I did not lie them and they did not like me and besides I heard sounds of torture from a girl so entered into battle. You might have done the same it was not my fault....

I"m sorry, I just don't get it. For her age, she is really saggy & could use some time in the gym. Compared to SI models of the past -- she's nothing special. If you take her out of swimsuits and see her in a dress she is completely unremarkable. Trot out a 40-something Stephanie Semour to show her how it's done.

If you have a big gut, no ass, and have a person whose fulltime job is to paint your face you are not PRETTY!

If she were just an average girl and not famous no one would consider her fat. If a girl thinks she is fat then she is either jealous or obsessed with being stick thin. If a guy calls her fat...well you must be blind and would you really pass up at a chance with her? I seriously doubt it.

Isn't it summer in Southern Hemisphere. No way it was -35 degrees. She'd have frostbite... Think about it!

Pretty face, but out of shape, really. Too young to have no tone.
