Kate Upton continued her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover Girl media blitz with an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talker on Thursday and after exchanging pleasantries and taking a gander at Miss Upton on the cover of the Swimsuit Issue, Ellen, the savvy interviewer that she is, segued right into what everybody has been wondering: is Kate Upton dating New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez, something that was briefly addressed on Wednesday here at SoB.
Ellen cuts right to the chase, asking Upton how her boyfriend Mark Sanchez feels about the cover and the ultra-skimpy bikini bottom she’s sporting in the photo.
The kindly folks at wltx.com performed the kindly service of transcribing the back-and-forth between Ellen and Kate, so those of you who are unable to view the video at the moment have the opportunity to learn exactly what occurred, although words aren’t attractive as the blonde female in the video. And Kate Upton ain’t half-bad, either. Heh.
Ellen: “Your boyfriend, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. How does he feel about this (the cover)?”
Kate: “I did not have a Valentine’s date this year.”
Ellen: “OK, so he was busy. So how does your boyfriend Mark Sanchez feel about all this? He must be proud, right?”
Kate: “Well, even if I had a boyfriend. I wouldn’t ask how he felt about it.”
Ellen: “You wouldn’t ask?”
Ellen: “He would just tell you, though. Has he told you? Your boyfriend Mark Sanchez? I’m just guessing that it’s him. Is it him?”
Kate: “Do you want it to be him?”
Ellen: “He’s cute. Don’t you think he’s cute?’
Kate: “Yeah, he is cute.”
Ellen: “Have you met him before?”
Kate: “I met him. My sister works for the Jets. She’s been working there for four years. So I went to all the games.”
Ellen: “So now you’re dating him?”
Kate: “I met him briefly.”
Ellen: “How long have you all been dating?”
Kate: “I don’t know what you’re talking about …”
Ellen: “She’s dating Mark Sanchez …”
And the video:
There you have it. All I’m going to say is if Kate Upton is clever enough to maintain her composure and not fall into and find herself ensnared in the cleverly-set trap laid out for her courtesy of the host’s ultra-subtle Jedi Mind Trickery, well, there isn’t any way someone will ever get Upton to admit to dating Sanchez until she’s good and ready to announce the news to the world. Because if a person has the fortitude to withstand Ellen’s sophisticated interrogation tactics, jeez, the CIA probably wouldn’t even bother.
