Kate Upon, the first model since Tyra Banks in 1996 and 1997 to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for consecutive years, discussed her shoot in Antarctica and whether she has any political ambitions like her uncle, Rep. Fred Upton (R., Mich.), on Fox News.

(Reuters) - Swimsuit model Kate Upton said on Tuesday her body shut down after she posed in a skimpy bikini in Antarctica for Sports Illustrated magazine.

Upton, wearing only a white bikini bottom and an unzipped white parka, was picked as the cover girl for the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, unveiled on Monday, for the second consecutive year.

“It was freezing,” Upton, 20, told NBC’s morning TV show “Today” on Tuesday. “I’m from Florida, so it wasn’t easy for me.

“When I came back, I was losing my hearing and eyesight. My body was shutting down because it was working so hard to keep me warm.”
