Tonight NBC and Swimsuit celebrate 50 years of wandering through the wilderness


You rememberhow Moses was all,"I led the Israelites through the the wilderness for 40 years and we only had manna to eat?" Well having grown up in a large Jewish family I totally understand how trying something like that must be. I'm impressed Moses, and I mean that.

But tonight NBC and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit celebrate 50 motherlovin' years of wandering through the wilderness, and that includes canoodling with enormous snakes, surviving a baboon mugging (a classic story for another day), tiptoeing across waterfall ledges, and sustaining Sahara sandstorms, all the while bringing the sexy back to you in one glossy package.
