I have to admire Ms. Upton for braving the cold and for sharing her extraordinary beauty with the world, but the things she describes are not the signs/symptoms of hypothermia.

Maybe no one was paying attention to her once she went back inside and bundled up to get warm again… and she just isn’t accustomed to being ignored.

I’ve never understood why Sports Illustrated feels they need to continue issuing their “soft porn” issue each year, other than some undersexed guys get off on it I suppose.
Even more bewildering is why young women (OK, I know it’s for the money they get paid) agree to pose like this, when the rest of society wants women to be treated with respect & NOT as sex objects.
Sorry, but women are doing it to themselves, & any disrespect comes from the fact a large portion of the women out there disrespect themselves by doing stuff like this.
Stop posing for this sort of stuff & maybe the community of men will learn how to better respect you when you at least are respecting yourself.

Use photoshop next time…


Oddly, I can’t believe that they didn’t, and this kind of reminds me of ‘news advertising’ more than anything…

Its SUMMER there now… It can’t possibly be cold enough to shut someone down… I even had one of these at -47 : http://www.whyfairbanks.com/images/40-Below-in-Fairbanks.jpg

I realize now that it sounds like the symptoms of fatigue brought on by a shift to a cooler climate. A higher intake of calories is required to support human metabolism in cold weather. Being a bikini model probably precludes her from the intake of fats and proteins required to sustain a human body in a below freezing climate.

@leumasmc you are right on the money. I spend a lot of time practicing bushcraft and ECWS (extreme cold weather survival) skills. Prepping for a photo shoot requires the cutting of weight, which is fantastically the opposite of what the body needs in those conditions. Fats and proteins are definitely a must to survive in those environmental conditions.

That must be where Congress is taking all their recesses because there isn’t a one of them that can see or hear anything.

What Einstein had this fine fine looking woman dress up in a Bikini at Antartica ? Does anyone know when the swimsuit issue comes out?

That is disgraceful. Whoever “M.J. Day” might be, he or she should not have permitted such a dangerous and cruel shoot to proceed.

What possible point could there be in risking a young woman’s health… so the magazine could have an Antarctic background for their near-pornographic cover? So they can sell more magazines? There is simply no excuse for such exploitation of a young person.

Who is this Upton girl? I don’t suppose anyone held a gun to her head & told her to trot around pretty much naked in the Antarctic?

Seems to be just another publicity stunt from yet another from a tediously long line of “models” whose only claim to fame is through getting their kit off…..I am fairly sure the rest of the planet know what a pair of boobs looks like by now!
