Kate Upton is the 2013 'Sports Illustrated' swimsuit edition cover girl for the second year in a row. / Derek Kettella, Sports Illustrated

The face of this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition is the same one from a year ago.

Kate Upton was again awarded the coveted prize of cover girl for the 2013 swimsuit edition of the magazine, which hits newsstands this week.

Upton is just the fifth model to be on SI's swimsuit cover in consecutive years.

Christie Brinkley (1979-81), Elle MacPherson (1986-88), Paulina Porizkova (1984-85) and Tyra Banks (1996-97) are the other models who earned back-to-back cover honors.

The image for the cover was shot in Antarctica, but it doesn't seem as cold there as one might expect. The magazine traveled to all seven continents for the swimsuit shoots.
