Commence slightly-sexist parlor game! The 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is scheduled to hit newsstands in a month, and as of yet, we've seen precious few guesses as to who--and more importantly--where will be featured. Ahead of the 2008 edition, we managed to track down a couple locations before our issue arrived, including Israel and the US Virgin Islands. What might this year's mag include?
Early chatter has it that Jessica Gomes of Perth could be 2009's cover lady, though where she did her shoots is still a mystery. Maui native Tori Praver will also feature heavily this year, and Honolulu's Star Bulletin says she too is in the running for the cover honor. (Both were photographed in the Turks and Caicos for the 2008 issue.)
On the sportier side, one pictures-of-chicks website reports Moscow-born tennis players Maria Kirilenko and Tatiana Golovin will make appearances this year. (Maybe their home town will get some love after St. Petersburg made last year's magazine?) Meanwhile, professional poker player Vanessa Rousso--poker's a sport, right?--reports that she made the issue. We're hoping they didn't force her to do a shoot in one of Vegas' notoriously grimy pools.
Have any tips about location shoots or who will make the magazine this year? Fill us in!
