Caitlyn Jenner’s Sports Illustrated cover is a major letdown 8

She’s been promoting it for months, so people were more than a little surprised when Caitlyn Jenner’s much anticipated Sports Illustrated cover turned out to be a major flop.

The former Olympian appeared on the July cover of the magazine wearing a sparkly gold jumpsuit and her 1976 Olympic medal.

It was the first time she’s worn the medal since winning gold at the Montreal Games 40 years ago and many are saying that was the best thing about the whole photo.

Sport Illustrated is known for doing provocative swimwear shoots, so most people were expecting her to appear on the beach in a bikini or something a little more revealing.

Instead, she is pictured looking demure and well and truly covered up.

She spoke about her past in the magazine and revealed she doesn’t think much of her accomplishments as a sportsman.

“Sports. It’s not real life,” she said.

“You go out there, you work hard, you train your ass off, win the Games. I’m very proud of that part of my life. And it’s not like I just want to throw it out. It’s part of who I am.

“What I’m dealing with now, this is about who you are as a human being.

“What did I do for the world in 1976, besides maybe getting a few people to exercise a little bit? I didn’t make a difference in the world.”

She also explained that’s why she decided to transition publicly, and not keep it private or disappear from the world.

“Maybe I could make a difference. This issue doesn’t deserve to be in the gutter anymore.”

What do you think of Caitlyn’s cover? Do you think she looks good?

  1. not being rude but it looks a bit nanaish. I think what he did in the past is the past i am all for transgenders and everything but this is going a bit to far . Im tired of all this Caitlyn crap what about the other transgenders do they get the notoriety like this person. NO. enough is enough lets get some more interesting news.

  2. Its pretty ordinary considering all the hype. I over her and the whole ” i am cait” business. She still looks like a drag queen.

    • You got that right. She has professionals dressing her and doing her hair and makeup and she still looks like a man. I can only imagine what she looks like when she does it all herself. Why am I saying “she”?

  3. Sick to death of seeing this person who has done nothing other than win a gold medal . If not for the family he married into would not rate a mention.

  4. Shame on sports illustrated! Guess they needed ratings from those that don’t normally read the magazine and probably has caused those that do to want to cancel subscription. Maybe thy need new marketing department if that’s all they can think of to bolster a ratings slip? First get rid of bathing beauties to appease the minority reader and next cover transgender again to appease or join the spectacle crowd.
    Guess us guys don’t rank high any longer..
