The extremely charming Jake Davidson is one impressive high school senior. He created a video that has since gone viral in which he asks Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton to his prom. We interviewed Jake on POPSUGAR Live and gave him a little surprise!
Curious how Kate Upton trained for her coveted cover shoot for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition? We chatted with celebrity fitness guru David Kirsch, who worked with Kate, about her new exercise plan, healthy diet, and motivation.
She sweat outside: "We started out in East Hampton and did very basic track and field work. We did wind sprints at the high school on the track, when the sun went down, we did bleacher drills up and down. And she wasn't very happy about that. That's where we started . . . When we were out at the beach or playground, we did hanging knee raises and the monkey bars. Whatever was around us, we did it."
She changed her diet: "I didn't know how she had been eating before, but I knew how I wanted her to eat going forward. She would come over, and we'd eat together. So she saw how I ate and how I fed my daughter, and she saw that it would be tasty and fun. It wasn't going to be an oppressive, tasteless experience . . . we dialed her into the fact that she could eat, get fit, and lose weight. Starving yourself is the furthest thing from my philosophy."
She made it fun: "Does she like running, sprinting? No, I'd probably say that's her least favorite thing to do. But she loves boxing and kickboxing, because she loves kicking my butt."

Kate Upton unveiled her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover with her fellow models on the Late Show in NYC last night. Kate wore a sexy black dress during her appearance on the show, where she and nine other swimsuit models — including Chrissy Teigen, Hannah Davis, Emily DiDonato, and Ariel Meredith — read the top 10 "questions" on the application to become a SI cover model. Some of the joke queries included "Have you ever dated Charlie Sheen?" and "Where's the strangest place you've ever found sand?" Later, Kate bundled up in a black coat to unveil a massive billboard version of her cover that was hung above the Late Show studio. This is Kate's second SI cover in a row, making her the first model to land back-to-back covers since Tyra Banks landed both the 1996 and 1997 publications.
Kate Upton is the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl! She posed in skimpy bikini bottoms in chilly Antarctica for the shot, which landed Kate in the coveted spot for the second year in a row. Kate rocked a tiny red suit for the 2012 issue, and her newest snap makes her the first SI swimsuit model to land back-to-back covers since Tyra Banks graced both the 1996 and 1997 publications. Kate spoke to People about her sexy Antartica cover shoot, saying it was "definitely the hardest shoot I've ever done." She continued, "The best as well – Antarctica is one of the most beautiful place I've ever been to. But I'm from Florida, so it was pretty painful." Kate's edition of SI is available on newsstands now.
Get a load of Kate Upton striking a sultry pose in Antarctica for the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue — her second time gracing the magazine's cover. While her Canada Goose white fur bomber ($595) kept her arms and head warm (or rather, covered up) she didn't leave much to the imagination when it came to her décolletage and bottom half, clad in white bikini bottoms. It's a jaw-dropping shot, no doubt, but if you invest in Kate's jacket, we're going to guess that you're probably looking for a more real-life appropriate way to style it. So how would we wear the model's white topper? With a sleek black turtleneck, black skinny jeans, and black shearling boots for a cozy-meets-luxe, Après-ski style that plays off of a chic black and white color scheme. And just like that Kate's fantasy-inspired cover shoot becomes a wardrobe reality.
