"(music) I think I'm in love..." 19-year-old Kate Upton works it for the camera in a bunch of itsy bisty bikinis — even taking off her top in one sexy shot — in this behind-the-scenes video from the 2012 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue shoot. The 5-foot-10 model was selected to be this year's cover girl and her larger than life pic was unveiled last night on Letterman. "There we go and it's Kate Upton." The Florida native was one of 10 contenders who appeared on the show awaiting the big national television reveal . . . . . . but it wasn't Kate's first big foray in the public limelight. Here are three things you didn't know about Ms. Upton. 3.

"I literally saw them in the ocean and grabbed them and were like put them on your boobs! (laughs)" 2. Kate's Got Acting Credits Number two, Kate's not just a model — she also acts.
