2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue To Feature Its First Plus Size Model [VIDEO/PHOTO]

By: Evan Jankens

Tuesday afternoon, I blogged about a woman I think will be the next big deal in the world of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models: Kelly Rohrbach.

The next day I found out the "next big thing" is -- literally -- happening.

Sports Illustrated is scheduled to feature the first plus sized model in their upcoming swimsuit issue.

Ashley Graham, who has one of the more gorgeous faces I have seen, is a little on the thick side. Personally, I would go out on a date with her in a heartbeat. I know that won't happen, but a man can dream.

According to US Magazine, the 27-year old model said, "There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt."

To each his own, but I like a little junk in the trunk. My only question is: Does this help sell magazines?
