Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover revealed

Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition features ... 00:56

The 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has been revealed and model Hannah Davis is the lucky lady chosen to grace the cover.

The 24-year-old Caribbean-born model poses suggestively in a black-and-white print bikini on the cover of the issue, one of the most coveted jobs in the modeling industry. While it's Davis' third time appearing in the Swimsuit Issue, she was thrilled to be selected as this years cover girl.

"I've always enjoyed the whole Swimsuit experience, and said that anything extra--a little square on the cover or anything like that--was a bonus," Davis told SI. "But still, this was my dream."

Davis didn't find out she was the cover until Tuesday, when SINow surprised her with a prank reveal.

"I told my mom there was no way I'd get the cover," the stunned model admitted. "I told her 'They do beaches for covers and I'm on a farm. There's no way. It's not possible.'"

Jimmy Fallon also revealed the cover on "The Tonight Show" on Wednesday.

Prior to the reveal, Fallon made a joke about the Swimsuit Issue on Twitter.
