And the winner is … Kate Upton. Sports Illustrated unveiled its 2013 swimsuit issue cover over the weekend, and Upton gains extra exposure for doubling up in the pin-up pose.

The theme this year involved Antarctica, and Upton is shown in a fur hoody. Also featured is Katherine Webb, who gained national attention when television coverage of the BCS title game turned her way. Webb, a beauty queen, is dating Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron; she attended SEC rival Auburn.

Upton is reportedly dating Detroit Tigers' pitcher Justin Verlander.
