Kim Kardashian's Ex: Did Reggie Bush Actually Upgrade?
The season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians premieres this Sunday on E! at 10 p.m. ET, and things have certainly changed quite a bit for Kim in the past month.
Obviously her engagement to NBA forward Kris Humphries won't be covered on the show (not this season at least), but all through her relationship she had to be comparing him to one person: Reggie Bush.
Reggie and Kim were the Rachel and Ross of celebrity couples, but it doesn't look like this one is going to end in marriage...at least not to each other.
Not only is Kim engaged but Reggie has also moved on to a new woman, Claudia Sampedro, who gives Kim a run for her money.
Let's take a closer look at Reggie Bush's new girl and see if he has achieved the impossible: an upgrade from Kim Kardashian.
Thanks to blacksportsonline for the pictures of Claudia.
7. Claudia Sampedro Topless Shoot
You know this is going to be good when this is Claudia Sampedro's seventh-best shot.
She's a Taz Angel, which I guess is a group of Twitter models that post hot pictures of themselves on the internet and get paid for it.
Not sure if that's a career, but we're not complaining.

And Kim comes out of the gates hot as well! We've got a competition on our hands, ladies and gentlemen.
I guess Reggie has a thing for girls who are famous for doing nothing.

6. Claudia Sampedro in a Bikini
I mean, if you're a professional underwear and swimsuit model, you should be able to tell when a bikini top is too small.
Oh yeah, now would be a good time to mention that when she's not modeling Claudia is reportedly an assistant for one of the top plastic surgeons in Miami.
I don't know why I thought now was a good time to mention that. Not sure at all.
6. Kim Kardashian in a Bikini
Kim's bikini body is no slouch either. She may also get a leg up because she's probably on the phone with her manager negotiating a $50,000 "appearance fee."
It's good to be a Kardashian.
5. Claudia Sampedro in a One Piece
Um...yeah...I don't really see girls that look like this in swimsuits that look like this when I go to the beach.
I can see why. I think the cases of heat exhaustion would multiply tenfold.

Kim's not afraid to get after it in a scandalous bikini either. And the good thing about Kim is that she doesn't need a high-priced, glamorous photo shoot to get her pictures out there.
She just shoots herself and posts the pics to Twitter. Done and done.
4. Claudia Sampedro by the Beach
Why am I getting the sense the Claudia spends 95 percent of her time in a bikini?
She is Cuban, so she must be used to hot weather and going to the beach. I definitely need to add her to the list of the sexiest Latinas in sports.

Kim's no stranger to a bikini either, as can be seen in numerous "candid" shots of her seaside throughout the world.
Here she is in Mexico, proving that she can handle the tropical weather as well.
3. Claudia Sampedro "Covered Up"
The good news? This is the most covered-up you will see Claudia Sampedro when you do a search online.
The bad news? I'm sorry, but I can't really see a downside to that.

Apparently Kim doesn't really grasp the concept of "covered-up" either and she thinks that it means covering her naked body in silver paint.

2. Claudia Sampedro's Best Video
Listening to her talk, you actually hear how much Claudia sounds like Kim. And the look is even pretty similar in this particular video.
One thing's clear. Reggie Bush has a type.
Then again, I guess this would be everybody's type if we could actually get girls like this.
2. Kim Kardashian's Best Video
This ad played very well to Super Bowl audiences this year, and Kim has definitely had her fair share of on-camera hotness.
I'm not sure if this one tops Claudia, but it's one of Kim's hottest videos.
1. Claudia Sampedro in Bed
I saved the best for last. If Claudia's going to have a shot against Kim, we need to go with her best shot.
Now I see how she got Reggie Bush. She just laid down on the bed, gave him this look...the poor guy never had a chance.

Yup, that's the look. I guess Kim has it as well.
Wow, this is going to be one tough decision. But...after much deliberation we have to decide that the winner is...
Winner: Kim Kardashian Still on Her Throne
While Claudia has made huge strides in a short period of time, she simply can't compete with Kim's body of work.
If Reggie stays with Claudia Sampedro for a couple of years and we start to build up a huge collection of hot photos, we might change our minds.
But as of right now, we have to say that Reggie Bush has not upgraded and that Kim remains on her throne...where she belongs.
