Alert! There are only about 13 weeks left before the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover is revealed. Lucky for all you SI super-fans out there, the brand has just released a super-sexy video teasing the issue.

The video is edited strategically so the models’ faces aren’t visible, but there are still plenty of, ahem, clues to help you guess who will appear in the mag. We think we may get a glimpse of 2014 cover girl Nina Agdal’s perfectly beachy bronde waves. And we’re pretty sure we spot a 2015 rookie– and first-time Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show model— Gigi Hadid. We’re still keeping an eye out for last year’s cover star (and Derek Jeter’s new fiancée!), Hannah Davis.
Most of the scenes shown appear to be waterside, which is only news because because even though this is a swimsuit issue, they’ve always tried to shoot in locations way beyond the beach. Remember Kate Upton’s 2013 shoot in Antarctica? Or that time she wore a bikini in space? (It’s no surprise she secured the title of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Woman Alive last year!) The 2015 cover with Hannah Davis was shot at a farm. There is truly no end to the types of locales where a bikini is appropriate, apparently.
If you’re into finding more clues to who’s in the issue, here’s a pro-tip: SI Swimsuit’s editor MJ Day posts (occasionally NSFW) behind-the-scenes snaps from their shoots on her Instagram account. Follow her @mj_day!
