Kate Upton returns to Antarctica (sort of), and we can't help but reminisce about her first visit

Remember that time we took Kate Upton to the coldest place in the world to shoot her in a barely-there bikini? I mean, how could you ever forget?

So when an adorable Instagram photo of the newly-engaged bombshell and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, surrounded by penguins, popped up in our feed, we couldn't help but wonder if Kate was taking on Antarctica once again. Could it be true?!

Unfortunately, as it turns out, Kate and Justin fooled us all with a trip to the Detroit Zoo, where they spent the afternoon handing out 'fish brrrrrrritos' and taking some seriously cute selfies. 

So, while we can't make all of your dreams come true with news of a second bikini-clad shoot on the southernmost continent, we'd like to invite you to take a look back at that one time Kate brought more heat to Antarctica than it's ever seen before. Because that, my friends, will NEVER get old. 

See some of Kate's best moments from SI Swimsuit 2013 in Antarctica!
