Kate Upton has been filmed sharing her love of sushi, her favorite food. She even claims to eat the Japanese delicacy as often as five times a week — with an extra order of pickled ginger.
Upton has been quoted indirectly as saying that she definitely watches her weight but splurges occasionally on ice cream and french fries.
She was the star of a national advertising campaign for SoBe drinks.
In July, Upton played in the 2011 Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game at Chase Field in Phoenix.
She is an avid equestrienne, so we can assume she doesn't eat horsemeat.
In conjunction with the release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, CKE Restaurants released promo clips of Upton's sexy new ad campaign for Carl's Jr. and Hardee's. The official commercial spots will begin airing next week.
Her ancestors founded the Whirlpool Corp., the largest manufacturer of home appliances in the country (including ranges, microwaves, and refrigerators) — one of the founders of Whirlpool, Frederick Upton, was Kate's great-grandfather.
She was born in St. Joseph, Mich., headquarters of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.
