Kate Upton As we mentioned before, Kate Upton's career is largely linked with sports. She grew up as a champion horse-rider (equestrienne?), and saw her fame increase from a YouTube video of her doing the Dougie at a Clippers game, only to find herself on the cover of this year's SI Swimsuit Issue. And, in perhaps her greatest sports-related accomplishment, she hung up on ESPN Radio host Colin Cowherd, the Mike Sorrentino of sports journalism, when he accused her of lying about her age. Colin Cowherd is just awful.
