Model and actress Kate Upton has topped Maxim’s Hot 100 list for 2018.

The 26-year-old flew to Israel to shoot the accompanying cover, telling the mag, “You know, I work really hard on myself: on feeling good, working out, being strong. Being number one on the Hot 100 is a little reward for all the hard work.”

“Perhaps no one has exuded Americana like this year’s winner, super-model Kate Upton,” Maxim said of their choice to place Kate at the top of the list. “Like her doppelgänger Marilyn Monroe, the 26-year-old is a blonde bombshell if ever there was one, complete with enviable curves, a sweet smile, and, remarkably, a good old-fashioned work ethic.”

Upton was scouted as a model at the age of twelve while leaving a Florida horse show. Since then her career has skyrocketed and she also married the love of her life, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, late last year in Italy.
