Meet the Model: Kate Upton


It's been a whirlwind three years for Kate Upton. She first gained prominence in 2011 by posing for the 2011 SI Swimsuit issue. A year later, at just 19, she appeared on the swimsuit cover and two months ago became the first back-to-back cover model since Tyra Banks in 1996-97. But that's just the beginning - she's also become a viral sensation after her doppelganger mimicked her 2013 cover  pose and again after being asked to the prom by a California high school student. But what is Kate really like? In this revealing interview, Upton discusses what's on her bucket list, the perfect date and her growing pet collection (currently at one horse, two little ponies and two dogs).
