Nearly four months after making her debut in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s 2016 edition, Hungarian model Barbara Palvin has been officially voted as the 2016 SI Swimsuit Rookie of the Year. Fans voted for the brunette stunner in droves in an online poll featuring tough competition from Ashley Graham, Sofia Resing, Tanya Mityushina and Bo Krsmanovic.
The news was announced with a short video clip where Barbara received a video message from Karl-Anthony Towns, the NBA’s Rookie of the Year. So who else holds the ROTY title? Names you might be familiar with like Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen, Sara Sampaio and Kelly Rohrbach. Check out images of Barbara in SI Swimsuit below and watch the video.
