Blondie Kate Upton is famous for her naughty hamburger ad, her YouTube videos, acting in a couple of movies, appearing on Saturday Night Live and landing her first Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover.
GQ took notice and did a pictiorial and interview with 20-year-old Kate, on newsstands nationwide June 26, 2012.
Upton joined GQ poolside for a racy cover shoot with photographer Terry Richardson. SHe tells GQ: “I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why mymale followers like me.… It’s like any job. You find your strengths and play them up...”
Upton on the most exciting thing she's done since becoming famous:
"For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I'm wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I'm holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing…You wouldn't think that would happen with a one-piece!"
…on the looming Jets quarterback controversy (Mark Sanchez vs. Tim Tebow):
"I'm going to be less emotionally involved this year."

"Kate grew up in a traditional, all-American family... God-fearing? Kate has two tattoos: a horseshoe on her wrist and a small cross on the inside of her finger. "You have to think hard with a tattoo," she says. "What will I love for the rest of my life?" Horses and Jesus seem like safe bets."
