I want to take all the credit for making Kate Upton popular. I kid of course, but I first noticed her when she first appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue as a new up and comer. And I knew she had it. The following year Upton graced the cover of the magazine and the rest is history.

With that as my track record — suffice it to say, I can spot talent — I bring to you Charlotte McKinney. I actually believe McKinney is hotter than Upton and shares some of the same, shall we say, features that made Upton famous.

Below are some of her better Instagram photos.

So what do you think? Is McKinney hotter than Kate Upton?
