The 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl was finally revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday.

This year, the honor goes to Kate Upton! She joins the illustrious list of models who have covered the famous issue, which includes names like Kathy Ireland, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Chrissy Teigen, Elle McPherson, and Brooklyn Decker.

This will be Upton's third time fronting the Swimsuit Issue, and she told Kimmel the magazine didn't let her know she would be the 2017 cover model until just a day before the big announcement.
