Jimmy Kimmel has once again the honors to unveil the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 edition will be released on Wednesday. SI has tweeted on Sunday that the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 cover will be unveiled on Tuesday. In a new released teaser video on Monday, the magazine announced that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition will be available everywhere on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14.

But on Tuesday SI announced that the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 cover will be unveiled on Jimmy Kimmel Live. This means that the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 magazine will not be at newsstands on Tuesday. SI has said to release new digital content every hour today. We expect the full digital release of the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 content after the cover reveal on Kimmel.

The 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photos and videos will be available on

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit 2017 cover model will be a guest on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live late night show on Tuesday at 11:35pm Eastern.

We expect the digital release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 edition to be available once the cover is revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. SI chose Kimmel to reveal the 2014 Swimsuit cover. It was the big 50th anniversary Swimsuit edition featuring three models on the cover.

There is a possibility that 63-year-old Christie Brinkley will be the 2017 SI Swimsuit cover model. Her photos for this year's swimsuit edition have made a huge splash. Christie Brinkley, who appeared in the magazine eight times between 1975-2004, is best known for her record three consecutive SI Swimsuit covers in 1979, 1980 and 1981. Now Brinkley can add another Swimsuit Edition year to her accomplishments.

Besides the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 cover model, Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Denzel Washington and Lukas Graham will perform.

SI Swimsuit will reveal this year’s highly anticipated special content, including the 2017 cast of swimsuit models, cover star, issue debut, a live-streamed red-carpet launch party in New York and more. The 2017 SI swimsuit models revealed so far include Nina Agdal, Christie Brinkley, Chrissy Teigen, Samantha Hoopes, Irina Shayk, Lais Ribeiro, and Kelly Gale.

Today SI released an essay about feminism, written be SI Swimsuit newcomer Myla Dalbesio. "A traditionalist may imagine that identifying as a feminist while simultaneously desiring to be a near-naked model in Sports Illustrated must bely some level of cognitive dissonance. Two seemingly conflicted ideas, standing in opposition to one another. You can’t fight against the oppression of the male gaze while simultaneously volunteering yourself as subject to it. Or can you?," Dalbesio writes in her essay. It is in the end a piece about the body diversity on the SI Swimsuit edition.

The Time Inc. owned magazine will accompany the release of the SI Swimsuit edition with a week filled with events and appearances.

Olympic Gold Medalists Simone Biles and Aly Raisman make their SI Swimsuit debut in the 2017 issue. Biles, who lives and trains in the Houston area, and Raisman, were photographed by James Macari against the backdrop of the VIBES festival, with shoots taking place around Houston at the World Champions Center, the North Houston Skate Park and the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden.

The “VIBES” by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit event caps off launch week of the 2017 edition. The inaugural “VIBES” festival is the latest live event offering from Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. VIBES by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit will be held in Houston on February 17–18. The first-of-its-kind event will feature live performances by GRAMMY Award-winning artists Diplo and Miguel; a food festival curated by Houston’s James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Shepherd and special appearances by all models of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Class of 2017.

The Time Inc. owned Sports Illustrated Swimsuit franchise reaches more than 73 million people annually, and more men 18 to 34 than the Super Bowl.

The iconic franchise now spans more than 20 product extensions in digital social, broadcast, publishing, mobile and consumer products, along with supporting a vibrant experiential marketing business.

Since debuting in 1964 Swimsuit has become a pop-culture phenomenon and an established launching pad for successful careers in TV, fashion, business and film including those of Kathy Ireland, Cheryl Tiegs, Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum. The 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is the 53rd. Read everything you need to know about the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
