Six years after Kate Upton first appeared on the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2011, her younger self looks nearly unrecognizable in her debut photo shoot.

SI Swimsuit shared a behind-the-scenes video from her inaugural shoot for the annual bikini magazine, and the teenage Upton looks very little like she does now.

Not only is Upton’s appearance in the video shocking, but Sports Illustrated revealed in the post that she almost didn’t make the cut to model for the magazine.

“I missed the casting for Sports Illustrated,” a much younger Upton explains in the video. “And they agreed to see me after they had already booked all of their girls.”

“And I just walked in, I thought it went really well ’cause everyone here is SO nice, and they just made the call. I was really excited I got it.” Safe to say her fans are glad she got the call too.
