Kate Upton may be incredibly gorgeous and successful, but that doesn’t mean that her life is perfect.
And just because she’s a professional doesn’t mean that photoshoots can’t go wrong.
In the video that you’re about to see, Kate Upton’s topless photoshoot goes awry when a powerful wave knocks her from the jagged rock and into the water.
Just weeks ago, Kate Upton accused a Guess co-founder of sexual harassment. As we learned the harrowing details of Kate Upton’s accusations against Paul Marciano, were were horrified by the groping, the culture of fear, and the retaliation that she described.
Thankfully, though this video has its scary moments, it’s much more lighthearted.
It’s also wonderful that Upton’s terrible experiences did not prevent her from pursuing her modeling career.
The NSFW video that you’ll see below was shared by Sports Illustrated. Their caption reads:
“Whoops! Things got a little rocky on @kateupton’s #SISwim 2018 shoot in Aruba!”
That is a tremendous understatement, made mostly for the sake of the pun. Because, you see, it all starts with Kate Upton standing on a rock.
At first, everything is going well.
Kate Upton is wearing … almost nothing.
Standing on a rock on the Aruba shoreline, she’s clad in a skin-tone bikini bottom and a whole lot of light cloth attached to the back of it to make the outfit artsier than your average topless bikini pic.
(The effect is kind of … of a peacock with its tail down)
She’s covering her nipples with her hands and poised dramatically while the photographers take in her beauty.
As a larger wave comes from behind, a man comes up to offer her his hand to steady her so that she does not fall.
Keep in mind that Kate Upton can’t exactly turn around and check her own surroundings. A giant Syfy Original movie sea monster could be emerging from the ocean water behind her and she’d be totally reliant upon the crew to let her know before the teeth-and-or-tentacles got her.
In this case, it’s just a wave, but a powerful one.
It seems to hit the rock at just the right angle to knock her off of her feet.
The man who offered her his hand isn’t able to prevent her from falling, but he does at least slow her descent.
In fact, some fans noted that if the man had not offered his hand, she could have fallen differently, perhaps striking her face or head on the rock.
You don’t ever want to fall off of a jagged rock into the ocean, but at least Kate Upton appears to mostly just fall into the water.
Another crew member dives in to make sure that she’s okay.
But she’s okay, and the video also shows her narrate the events after the fact.
She even seems to laugh it off. It’s good to have a sense of humor about these things.
“I saw the next wave coming and it didn’t look that large from my point of view, but it must have hit the rock just right and caught on.”
She explains why, despite the man’s help, she fell.
“The skirt whenever it’s wet with all the tools is very heavy and it dragged me down. Everybody was scared.”
