MoeJackson Research: Irina Shayk Should Be On The Cover, But Kate Upton Will Cover 2014 S.I. Swimsuit Issue


We’ve said this over & over again, but S.I. editors refuse to listen.

FYI: The Cold War is over and it’s perfectly alright to allow a Russian supermodel to cover an all-American swimsuit magazine more than once! It’s unfortunate that the political winds are blowing against Irina, but I guess that’s the world we live in. I know we’ve done this same poll a few times in the past 24 months, but it’s always fun to do it again…

    Kate Upton’s boobs look horrible in the pic with the black dress- Way too big, saggy, grandma boobs which were pushed up with a wonderbra.

    No question that Irina Shayk should be on the cover. Irina is a beautiful sexy woman, while Kate Upton doesn’t have a pretty face or a great body- All she has are ridiculously huge boobs.

    Hopeless cavemen Americans.

    Kate Upton isnt even in the league below Irina.

  • beast

    Nina Agdal will be on the cover this year.

  • Leena

    Irina is sexy for sure but Kate has a more “real” girl next door look about her. I am going to go with Kate.

  • lenilovesfeet

    I’d rather see Rita Ora on the cover than these two. Upton is overrated, Irina is sexy as hell, but I’ve seen enough of her body.

  • curvefan

    I think SI will put Nina on the cover but I find all of this consternation about what a bunch of old biddies think to be silly.  I’m also surprised that nobody has mentioned Emily Ratajkowski or Candice Swawapoel.

    • curvefan My guess was Emily. I wrote it in one of those instagram threads last week. Though, I’m not sure who my choices are. I don’t think Candice is one of them though.

      • Drew_MonetI had heard that Emily is working with SI, so that instantly made her my pick with the year 2013 she had. I think Miranda’s name is too high for a first timer. Emily is still pretty far down the totem pole.

    Are you sure you don’t wanna drag in some cheap racial thing into this?

  • ErikColquitt

    How about someone NEW like Nina Agdal or the Criminally Underrated Hilary Rhoda ( her Bod is Sick ) any one else besides who the public expects.

    • Ann

      ErikColquitt Wow she’s got a nice body alright

  • Ann

    I prefer brunettes so will go with Irina

  • Ann

    lenilovesfeet Rita Ora sporting a totally new look would be a sold out issue!

  • Bobby

    Out of the two…Irina, absolutely NO question, I don’t get why Kate is so famous besides her tits. I would love to see Xenia Deli or Rosie HW on the cover but I know that won’t happen. If they put Nina on the cover I will def lose some love for SI. As much as I don’t love Kate Upton, I prefer her face much more to Nina’s.

  • Spanglylovesheels

    Drew_Monet Jessica Gnomes is perpetually under rated. Is it because she is like half Asian? SI might feel that the Bubbas out in the heartland won’t buy the issue if it features someone not ethnically pure and blonde.

  • skilligan

    if it is only about moving issues then Kate makes sense, she is the only one of the models mentioned that is a household name, she isn’t close to being the hottest but she’s very popular

  • Backwoodsman

    Kate’s got a really cute face.  Like her closed mouth more than Irina’s (though she’s a bit gummy when smiling wide).  But swimsuit model?  Nah, not really (aside from that one Beach Bunny show she did, but that was all about the jiggle).
    I’m with Irina in this matchup, but I’d like to see someone else altogether.
    Team Alyssa!

    • McP

      Backwoodsman Oh yeah Kate has a hot face alright:

      • Gabe

        McP Backwoodsman  Honestly, if you ignore the transient break out and that upper lip hair she hadn’t yet waxed, she still has great facial features and a cute nose.

        • McP

          @Gabe McP Backwoodsman  I cannot ignore the acne, the ‘stache, or even the mole above her lip.

  • Backwoodsman

    Forgot about Hilary.  She’s definitely not a bad choice.

  • Obsidio

    I will always take an all-American blonde with big tits.

  • McP

    Kate Upton hotter than Irina, that is fucking hilarious!

  • GrgeCdnBastard

    23 comments in MJ’s tenth year? Awesome!

    • GrgeCdnBastardHeh, that’s actually way more than most of the similar sites

  • nrkey

    Neither. One is a fridge, other a butterface (those lips, ew).

    • errsome

      nrkey If Irina is a butterface, I can’t just imagine what you’d call our kind. 😉

  • Gabe

    I prefer Irina’s body and exotic facial structure. Kate is cute, but underwhelming from the waist down.
