This will be the last of my posts on the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue today. I know, I know, it’s some heartbreaking stuff, but all good things must come to an end. Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. And to wrap things up today, we’ve got the lovely Barbara Palvin. Talk about a grand finale.
Barbara is a 23-year-old model from Budapest, Hungary, and this marks her second ever appearance in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She made her impact felt in her debut in 2016, bringing home the coveted Rookie of the Year honors.
Barbara might go from Rookie of the Year to MVP in her second season, à la what Kris Bryant just did for Chicago Cubs. I don’t think I’ve ever been so turned on by a woman in a comically oversized beach hat in my entire life. That’s how you make lemonade out of lemons. Barbara is going to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
