-- Meet your THREE SI Swimsuit cover models for 2016 --
Hailey Clauson, plus size model Ashley Graham, and MMA star Ronda Rousey.

Every year, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue puts the heat back in February.

And, this year the promotions and teasers promised to be hotter than ever. As early as October 2015, SI launched its 2016 Swim Daily reports with sneak photoshoots of what was to come!

In early January, UFC fighter Rhonda Rousey splashed across the interwebs in nothing but bodypaint.

The big reveal

This year, Sports Illustrated and TNT teamed up for "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 Revealed", a first-of-its-kind broadcast which included the highly-anticipated unveiling of the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover. The 1-hour live show on TNT aired on Saturday night, February 13, 2016 immediately following the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk competition.

But NOW it can be revealed that there won't be one -- but THREE women gracing the cover of the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Three separate covers will be issued that each feature a solo shot of either MMA star Ronda Rousey, or plus size model Ashley Graham, or Hailey Clauson. That's right - collect all three when the 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue hits newsstands on Monday, February 15th!

All about the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue

In the winter of 1964, Sports Illustrated magazine was in its usual sales slump. So the editorial staff at SI decided to try something new.

Babette Marche, a model in a racy (for the time) bikini was splashed across the cover for their new February issue and - surprise! - the very first SI swimsuit issue was almost an instant sellout.

Soon, hot-blooded sports fans by the millions were waiting at mailboxes for delivery of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in an annual winter tradition.

Since then, Sports Illustrated is credited with almost single-handedly launching the Era of the Supermodel, giving rise to the careers of Tyra Banks, Christie Brinkley, Rachel Hunter, Elle Macpherson and Kathy Ireland (to name only a few) who have since graced the cover.

The 2006 landmark "topless" cover featured models Veronica Varekova, Elle Macpherson, Rebecca Romijn, Rachel Hunter, Daniela Pestova, Elsa Benitez, Carolyn Murphy and Yamila Diaz. Inside, Heidi Klum was the featured photo spread and, (just to keep it fairly legit as a sports issue), tennis pro Maria Sharapova also appeared in the lower right hand corner over the sub-headline, "...As You've Never Seen Her".

Fortunately, fans no longer have to wait anxiously at their mailboxes for the hardcopy, and enjoy almost instantaneous access to the swimsuit issue online - including model profiles, behind the scenes photo shoots and video clips, along with an entire archive of favorite editions.
