Sports Illustrated has introduced its next slate of finalist models for its upcoming swimsuit issue, and a plus-sized model, a 56-year-old model, and a bald fitness trainer will be among them.
The magazine introduced the six finalists that the magazine touted as its most diverse ever. The finalists were winnowed down from seventeen hopefuls unveiled last October, the Daily Mail reported.
Before this years winner is announced, the magazine is set to send the finalists to a photo-shoot conducted in the Turks & Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory southeast of the Bahamas.
The finalists include Philadelphia native Christie Valdiserri, a 25-year-old fitness instructor and dancer whose personal style includes are bald head.
I was inspired to attend the Model Search in Miami when I finally had enough strength and confidence in myself as a bald woman, Valdiserri recently said.
Valdiserri added that she wanted to educate the next generation that beauty comes from who you are, not from what you look like.
Kathy Jacobs from Calabasas, California, is also a member of the group, but at 56 and silver-haired, is an even more unconventional finalist for the magazines most glamorous photo-shoot.
Ive entered the SI Swimsuit Model Search and flown to Miami twice, Jacobs said. The first time I didnt make it past the first round. But I didnt give up! I felt a burning desire to try again and to be part of a change in the way society views women over 50.

I gotta have that...
Next up, all the swimsuit models will be transgender “women”.
And will wonder why no one buys their magazine anymore...
Sure to be a top selling edition....NOT
I didn’t know Sports Illustrated was still a thing.
After this, It won’t be......................
I have a friend who is 60+ who is a 9 all day.
Another who is 55 and probably the hottest woman I have ever met.
SI is going to die very quickly as no one pays attention to them anymore.
Oh joy joy....I better go get in line at the newsstand lest I miss out...what no tranny???
Can’t wait until they have a model with a bulge in the front of “her” bikini. Yuk!
Beauty comes from who you are, not what you look like
Although I do agree with this, the swimsuit edition was never about who you are......it was ALWAYS about what you look like. My husband used to buy the swimsuit edition, but hasnt for several years. Looks like this year wont include a purchase either. (I enjoyed the swimsuit edition, too. The body painted models were always interesting)
Saves travel costs.
This will be a ‘collector’s edition’..............collecting dust...................
It’s tough being a 13 year-old boy these days.
So, you’re saying, I have a chance??
In today’s world, yeah.........................
Playboy already did, 2017:
