The cover shot, taken by Ben Watts at Tennessee's idyllic Blackberry Farm, marks Hannah's third (and, we tend to think, best) appearance in the issue and was revealed Wednesday night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

"I didn't think it could get better than Hannah's Jersey Shore shoot last year," says SI Assistant Managing Editor MJ Day, "but this year everything clicked. It was perfection."

Believe it, though, when we say that noone was more surprised by the results than the 24-year-old model herself, who learned of the news Tuesday afternoon through a prank made possible by SI Now (video above).

"I gave her a hug and the only words she could get out were, 'Are you sure? Is it definitely printed already?'" says MJ.

"I told my mom there was no way I'd get the cover," a stunned Hannah admitted (after calling her mother and taking it all back). "I told her 'They do beaches for covers and I'm on a farm. There's no way. It's not possible.'"
