The 2011 SI Swimsuit Issue Cover Model Short List Revealed!

In February, Sports Illustrated will unleash their 2011 Swimsuit issue in 3D! And that means one model will be picked to grace the cover. Much thought goes into this important decision, and we’d personally like to thank SI for picking Brooklyn Decker in 2010, it’s a classic. But who will the lucky lady be this year? We’ve narrowed the field down to five likely contenders. Of course we have no pull in the decision – but we have correctly picked the cover models for the last two years and the pictures are fun to look at (which is all that matters anyway)!

UPDATE: 2.14.11 We called it again: Irina Shayk is the 2011 SI Swimsuit Cover Model. Check out our pics from the Letterman Show.
