She has appeared on the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue three times.
And though Kate Upton has veteran savvy, her chances of gracing the front for a fourth time could have been swept away.
Video footage was released by the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Instagram on Tuesday of the 25-year-old model being knocked off a rock by a huge wave during a shoot in Aruba.

Sultry: Kate Upton was featured in video footage shared by the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Instagram on Tuesday
Ouch: The 25-year-old model could be seen taking a frightening fall off a rock as a huge wave hit her during the shoot
The blonde bombshell was topless for the sultry shoot as she narrowly avoided disaster as an unsuspecting wave knocked her off balance.
Luckily she did not fall directly onto the rock too hard and seemed to walk away from the incident with minimal damage.
In the short clip Kate gave her account of what happened as she explained: 'The next wave coming, it didn't look that large from my point of view but it must have hit the rock just right and caught on.'

The only pieces of clothing the wife of MLB superstar Justin Verlander wore were nude bikini bottoms with a long gold tiered tulle skirt.
Kate said: 'This skirt whenever it's wet with all the tools it is very heavy and it dragged me down.
'Everybody was very scared especially MJ.'
Oh no: The top model ended up falling on the sand on her side, narrowly avoiding catastrophe
Are you okay? Another person sprung into action and helped Kate up
The unfortunate tumble happened during her shoot back in October on the beautiful Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba.
