Michelle Jenneke: Meme Star to Swimsuit Model

Michelle Jenneke continues to cash in on the world’s most enduring pre-race warm up routine, landing a spot in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Jenneke joins fellow scantily clad  internet darling Katherine Webb, who’s online currency soared after she received a gushing/creepy mid-game shout-out from veteran sports-caster Brent Musburger. Bikini models needn’t despair, Sports Illustrated have not exclusively channeled their energies into recruitment meme-babez, with swimsuit issue veteran Kate Upton scoring the cover.

As the footage shows, Jenneke’s indoor gig was a pretty sweet deal considering Upton lost her hearing and eyesight in the -35 degrees Antarctic shoot. Surely their must some some kind of bikini-model hierarchy that Jenneke has just scuppered but if Zoolander taught us anything, it’s that life can be tough when you’re really really ridiculously good looking… I guess.

Predictably, Jenneke is charming as ever, but is it just me or is anyone else ready to just watch this girl race?
