DAVID LETTERMAN to Reveal 2013 Sports Illustrated Cover Tonight
Ten Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models, including 2013 cover model Kate Upton, present the "Top Ten Questions on the Application to Become a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model" on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Monday, Feb. 11.
A billboard of Upton's 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover was also unveiled during the LATE SHOW broadcast, with the giant image located on the front of the Ed Sullivan Theater building above the iconic LATE SHOW marquee on Broadway. Upton, who was also the cover model for the 2012 issue, is the first woman to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue for two consecutive years since Tyra Banks in 1996 and 1997. The 2013 cover and identity of Upton as the cover model, which was supposed to be announced on the LATE SHOW tonight, was leaked on Friday and officially announced over the weekend, which Letterman joked was the fault of "hackers." Later in the broadcast, Upton posed on the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee under her billboard.
The 10 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models presenting tonight's Top Ten List are Upton, Emily DiDonato, Nina Agdal, Ariel Meredith, Chrissy Teigen, Katherine Webb, Hannah Davis, Alyssa Miller, Genevieve Morton and Julie Henderson. Among the items they present include number 5, read by Miller: "Please list your three most recent employers' measurements"; number 4, read by Henderson, "Have you ever used any pose-enhancing drugs?" and number 3, read by Morton, "Are you willing to visit the elderly at his late night talk show?"
The 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue will hit newsstands tomorrow and is available tonight for digital download on iTunes.
The full 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Top Ten List, including the unveiling of Upton's 2013 cover billboard, as well as an interview with talk show host Bill O'Reilly and a performance from musical guests The Avett Brothers, can be seen on the LATE SHOW tonight (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Upton will also visit the LATE SHOW Tuesday, Feb. 12 for an interview with Letterman. Also visiting the broadcast Tuesday, Feb. 12 are superstar Bruce Willis, star of the new film "A Good Day to Die Hard," and musical guests Little Big Town.
