Carol Alt doesn’t get the Kate Upton mania

Kate Upton–the curvacious, bubbly blonde 21-year-old swimsuit model who is ubiquitous on magazine covers, particularly Sports Illustrated, may impress many; however, former SI swimsuit model Carol Alt is not one of them.

In an interview on HuffPost Live yesterday, the 53-year-old Alt said concerning Kate-mania, “What I don’t understand with Kate Upton is what’s all the hullaballoo, there are many covers of Sports Illustrated — one girl was just wearing a bottom, no top. I don’t get what all the hullabaloo is. I think what it is is that in this moment there’s just so much social media and that’s why she’s had more word of mouth than anybody.”

Carol Alt went on to say, “I like Kate, she’s a pretty girl, but all the girls are nice, and all the girls are pretty. Every cover, to me, deserves to be talked about.”

Carol Alt, who currently hosts the Saturday afternoon TV show, A Healthy You & Carol Alt, appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 1982
