From 'The Dougie'to the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, Kate Upton's stock continues to reach new highs.

Big Business of Swimwear & Kate Upton
Mark Ford, Time Inc. Sports Group president, and Kate Upton, Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model, discuss the money behind Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition, with CNBC's Darren Rovell.

The 19-year-old supermodel stopped by CNBC to discuss her rise to fame, how the internet has helped shape her career, and where she expects to be in ten years.

During the segment, CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell made a bold move — dropping to one knee — asking Kate to be his Valentine.

The blonde bombshell tried to let him down easy saying, "I definitely want the chocolate, but there’s a little bit of a waiting list.”

Here are some amazing (and sometimes hilarious) photos from Kate Upton's visit to CNBC.
