According to a report in COED MAGAZINE, a publication which we have no reason to doubt, the cover girl of this year’s SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT EDITION is none other than the beautiful Bar Refaeli. The magazine cites snoops at the taping of tonight’s edition of “The Late Show with David Letterman“, where the cover girl is scheduled to appear and be revealed.
(The beauty of Ms. Refaeli is certainly Bar-none)
Really, this was a story that was going to be full of good news no matter which way it turned out. According to all relevant straw polls, Refaeli and Andy Roddick’s fiance, Brooklyn Decker, were the heavy favorites.
(Guess Brooklyn will have to wait ’til next year)
The 23-year-old Refaeli is also Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend, so SPORTS ILLUSTRATED was essentially given the rare and brilliant choice of picking the attachment of an American celebrity whichever way it went.
(More brilliant Bar Refaeli photos after the jump.)

For the record, we’re in full support of Rafaeli’s selection. Well done Terry McDonell (Editor, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED GROUP) and David Bauer (Deputy Managing Editor). It’s always nice when you’re in a win-win situation, isn’t it.
So, does this mean we’re going to skip out on watching tonight’s Late Show? Absolutely not! After all, we’re going to get to see Bar Refaeli … perhaps in some state of undress. Kind of like half of these photos.
This really is a great country, isn’t it? Any land that can boast both Refaeli and Decker on its soil at one time is doing something right, whether they were born here or not.
