The swimsuit modeling game isn’t always glamorous.
The 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is set to hit newsstands soon. This year’s issue features a ton of familiar faces.
Among them: Kate Upton. The supermodel, recently married to MLB star Justin Verlander, is back in the issue this year.
Upton’s shoot this year was apparently kind of dangerous. She got tossed around by a wave pretty hard.
The 25-year-old model was standing topless on a rock at the beach. It made for a pretty good photoshoot as some soft waves came in around her legs.
Then, the water got a little rough. Upton continued to stand there calmly, though.
The waves picked up and one was just too big to stand through. She got tossed to the ground pretty roughly.
Thankfully, she appears to be OK. Everyone around her was obviously very concerned.
The model life isn’t always glamorous. She’s a professional, though, and battled through the adversity.
The shoot turned out pretty well. Check it out:
