Here she is, your 2014 S.I. Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year, Sara Sampaio. And a deserving winner she is.

We've recently spent some time here and there on the 50th Anniversary edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and one section of it that we particularly enjoyed is the rookies. For example, there was this special on first-timer (and friend of ours) Emily Ratajkowski.

But according to the fans, the 2014 Rookie of the Year is the lovely Sara Sampaio. We've certainly enjoyed getting to know her, and we wish her nothing but the best in the future. Specifically, that she return for next year's issue and do one of those body-paint pictorials, please. Thanks!

Here are a few of our favorite parts of the video (and of Sara):
