For better or for worse, when Kate Upton speaks, people listen. And with the insights revealed in the behind-the-scenes video from her GQ cover shoot, the least we can say is that she's got a firm grasp on what's been powering her prominence on the internet since the mag's photo spread was released. Here is our ranking of the model's five most bimbo-y quotes, in order of WTF:
5. On her favorite things: "My favorite food is sushi...my favorite color is yellow."
4. On what she looks for in a man: "I look for someone fun...chill...not steal my spotlight."
3. On her favorite photographer: "My favorite photographer is TERRY [smile, smile, thumbs-up]."
2. On patriotism: "I love all the states in America. I just love America."
1. If she had just one wish: "One wish...I...would have smaller boobs. JUST KIDDING! haha HAHA haha haha!"
