Recommended Posts

I would want the previous one specially with the Josie Maran in it she so damn sexy and would love to see her SI pictures again she's freaking gorgeous, It was back for 2000, 2001, and 2002. it suck how she doesn't get credit for the 2000 one but she did shoot for them. Would love to also see back again petra nemcova, yamila diaz, ana beatriz barros, and alicia hall

I have a question, I think this is the best place to ask, since when did SI had best rookie of the year thing going on? I don't remember seen in the previous years such favorite rookie of the year, since last year and this year. Who was best/favorite rookie for the 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, etc, etc,etc?

I know for this year was Nina, and last year Kate.

can someone post the 2002 and 2003 issue right here, don't remember exactly the magazine issue for those years, I only remember that Yamila and Petra were on the cover and that is it.

I think it started in 2008. From all i know these are the past rookies of the year:

2008: Melissa Haro

2009: Esti Ginzburg

2010: Chrissy Teigen

2011: Kate Upton

2012: Nina Agdal

really oh wow, that has been for a long time already. I am so happy for Esti, I don't know she was a rookie favorite, that is cool. I really appreciate that you answer my question.

Y'all remember the SI Throwback book I mentioned? It has an official release date: October 22nd, 2013 and you can pre-order it on Amazon already

What I know: Brooklyn Decker will be there. Who else will be there I have no Idea but I assume it will be close to the same girls who made it into SwimDaily's Top 50

Regarding my idea for an SI Swimsuit tournament first introduced here:

 

http://www.bellazon.com/main/topic/47095-2014-si-swimsuit/page-46#entry3239195

 

I have created a database of SI Swimsuit models, compiled by personally verifying each issue (with the exception of some of the early 00s that I do not have... but I am nearly certain on those being accurate, too.)

 

There are 221 actual models (not sports stars, guest stars, etc.) that have appeared in the issue through the years.  My idea for the tournament is to have every one of those models in the running.  I have already setup a bracket, and I'll explain more about how I did that in a bit.  The short answer here is that I have ranked every one of the 221 models according to scoring system that takes into account the number of appearances and number of covers, both of which are weighted depending on year and number of models appearing in a given year; in other words, not just a simple count.  I seeded the top 32 models in order, and bracketed them appropriately so that they won't face each other until the later rounds.

 

Obviously, 221 participants in one bracket is nuts, so to make it work, I've created a qualifying bracket of 125 models where 32 models will prevail to enter the main bracket.  For those who are tennis fans, this is similar to how the major tennis tournaments work.  The main bracket has 128 models, with the 32 seeds initially matched up against the 32 qualifiers.  The remaining 64 are unseeded and randomized using random.org.  So, the top 96 in my rankings are in the main draw to start, and the rest of the models (125) duke it out in the qualifying rounds to get one of the 32 spots reserved for the qualifiers.  All qualifying matchups were randomized; there are no seeds in the qualifying tournament.

 

That's about it in a nutshell.  To coincide with the final match being held when SI's 2014 swimsuit issue is released in February, the tournament would start in early September, and I'd run one or two matchups a day, depending on the round.

 

Thanks.

^  I think it should be done in this subforum

http://www.bellazon.com/main/forum/97-bellazon-competitions/

 

OK, thanks.  I will post there.  I was taking a look at others in that area, and I didn't like how it was so difficult (manual) to collect poll results.  So, I'm going to post there, but the poll question itself will be a link to a free poll site (a non-spammy one).  I plan to post each matchup here, but for ease of posting the brackets, archiving, etc., I'll use my blog site, too.  I'll post more details over on the forum you suggested.  Thanks!

SI is holding a voting to chose the best 5 Covers of all-times, make sure you vote for Brooklyn's 2010 cover your favorites.

 

I think it will be very interesting to see the results, I feel like the last decade will def have at a couple of covers in the top, here's the link to vote http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/specials/covervote/
