When I was first approached about this assignment, my thoughts were clear, "Of course I will do it."
But then I began my research. The list of beautiful women that have posed for Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit Edition over the past forty years is massive. It is long and filled with the most beautiful women to ever roam the Earth.
I had no idea I would find so many stunningly gorgeous models. Then I had to rank them. You think that was easy. It was like choosing between Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel for the third member of a night of fun in Vegas.
So here is the list of the hottest women to ever appear on the SI Swimsuit issue. Enjoy.
