After months of anticipation and waiting, we have now finally been given the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2016 and, along with it, the model who was chosen to appear on the cover this year. Well, the publication decided to do things a little differently this year and chose to have three separate covers, each one featuring either Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham or Hailey Clauson.
For her cover shoot and her photos inside the publication, Ronda Rousey was snapped nude and covered in body paint, which resulted in a very impressive collection indeed. However, while we and the rest of the world have enjoyed seeing these pictures, Ronda has admitted that it was not as much fun to shoot as it might look.
In the accompanying interview with the publication, Rousey explained, "The most memorable thing was me bent over on a table while someone took a little paintbrush and just coloured circles around my butthole. And I was like, 'I am not used to anything cold and wet being there.' So it was really odd."
She then went on to add, "I'm standing there naked for 14 hours and shooting for all this time and at the end of the day, they're like, 'Do you want to eat? Do you want water? Do you want anything else?' I'm like 'No, I want a bra pronto. All other needs come later."
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2016 is out now and we have enjoyed seeing all of the models in this years publication, but which cover model do you think is the best?
