S.I. swimsuit model Tanya Mityushina knows she's fighting an uphill battle against plus sized model Ashley Graham ... and it could cost her the coveted "Rookie of the Year" title.
We got Tanya in Bev Hills and she talked about the fact Ashley's already one of S.I.'s cover girls, which could give her an unfair advantage in the rookie voting.
But Tanya's not giving up just yet. She gave us her best pitch for why she should top Ashley this time around. Hard to argue with this logic.
