Kate Upton has revealed that she got frostbite after she shot her second Sports Illustrated cover in Antarctica.

For the assignment, the 20-year-old supermodel stripped off to a tiny white string bikini on the shores of the South Pole, where the average high is around -49 degrees Fahrenheit.

Describing the effects the sub-zero weather had on her body she told the Today show that when she came back, she was losing her hearing and eyesight as her body was shutting down, the Daily Mail reported.

She said that her body was working hard to keep her warm.

Upton said that the temperature in Antarctica was freezing and as she is from Florida it wasn't great for her.

She added that the magazine has "promised somewhere warm" for her next cover shoot. (ANI)
