The 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover Model Short List Revealed!

By Edit Posted in Girls

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue will be unveiled soon and the office has been a buzz with which smoking hot model will appear on the cover. We don’t mean to brag and we don’t mean to boast, but our predictions are like butter on your breakfast toast. Last year, we picked Irina Shayk and sure enough the red hot Rookies landed it. In 2009, we were leaning towards Brooklyn Decker and though we were off by a year, you have to admit the bikini force is strong with us. Check out the pics and give us your prediction in the comments.
