Don’t You Forget About Nina Agdal

Nina Agdal

With all the hype over whether Hannah Davis is the “next Kate Upton,” let us not forget who is really in the position to claim that title.

Nina Agdal. Nina what?

Come on, dear readers, you gotta know Nina Agdal! She was picked as the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year — following in the footsteps of 2011 RotY Kate Upton. So perhaps we should be talking about why Nina is the next Kate Upton. Although that’s a little silly since Kate Upton is still on the rise. How can there be a next when we’re not done with the current? Here’s the story as best we can explain it:

Kate Upton is the current Kate Upton.
Kate Upton is the next Kate Upton.
Nina Agdal is the current Nina Agdal.
Nina Agdal might be the next next Kate Upton.
Hannah Davis is the current Hannah Davis.
Hannah Davis might be the next Nina Agdal
Hannah Davis might be the next-next-next Kate Upton.

It’s arithmetic: Kate then Nina then Hannah. Here’s Nina in a truckload of swimsuits by Sauvage:
