Meet S.I. Swimsuit Rookie Bianca Balti, Courtesy Of This Steamy Video and Even Steamier Photos

This smoldering Italian stunner is vying for S.I.’s “Rookie of the Year” award.

Ahead of the release of the the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, the annual bikini bible is introducing us to the jaw-dropping S.I. rookie Bianca Balti.

The Italian beauty heats up the bikini video above, wherein she poses on some far-flung tropical beach–you know, typical S.I. stuff. Given her expertise wearing a tiny two-piece, it’s a wonder this is only Bianca’s first time working with the mag. 

She makes a strong case for winning the 2017 “Rookie of the Year” award, which allows online voters to pick their favorite bikini beauty. Cast your votes here, if you’re into that sort of thing.
