The annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is here! Which means, for all of you single hetero dudes out there, Valentine’s Day is today. And pretty much every day hereafter, considering there are 17 models in the issue, and about 40 pictures of each of them in the online edition, which, if you mete out your intake of it, should last you through the apocalypse of 2012, and then some.
The 2011 Swimsuit Issue features two hapa hotties (ha-tties?): Jessica Gomes, an Australian native of Portuguese and Chinese descent, and Chrissy Teigen, a Utahan who’s Thai and Norwegian.

Name: Sonia Dara
Hails from: Hotlanta, Georgia
Occupation: Model and college student
Why She’s a Babe: Not only is Sonia the first model of Indian descent to grace the pages of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue, she’s also a sophomore at Harvard, where she’s studying economics. Can you imagine what it’d be like to be her roommate? You could never borrow her clothes or have a pint of ice cream or a beer around her without feeling like a pathetic, fat slob, and despite secretly hating her and her perfection, you’d have to befriend her, because she’d be your in to meeting hot guys, and not just goofy undergrads, but, like, hot graduate students doing their dissertations in something sexy like philosophy who spoke eight languages and lived part-time in a real city like Paris or En-Why-See, dudes who would, unfortunately, only befriend you because you’d be their in to the swimsuit model.
Fortunately for that poor lass, Sonia is taking a year off from school to pursue her modeling career. In other words, there is a god.

Hails from: Perth, Australia
Ethnicity: Portuguesian (father is Portuguese, mother is Singaporean Chinese)
Why She’s a Babe: Being in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue two years running–in 2008 and the newly-released 2009–automatically qualifies Jessica, obvs. But even in a field of hotties–Leo DiCaprio’s GF Bar Rafaeli graces the 2009 cover–the Portuguesian model’s face stands out. And we mean that literally, because you may have noticed that homegirl’s rockin’ a moonface, and we love moonfaces, even if we sometimes try to minimize our own. Also, Entertainment Weekly gave Jessica props for “best water shot” and…wait, what the fuck is a “water shot”?!
