A few days ago, the Sports Illustrated Instagram account shared some behind-the-scenes footage taken during the photo shoot for its upcoming swimsuit edition, including some video in which Ashley Graham shows off her twerking skills.
Wearing a red thong bikini, the 30-year-old model is seen shaking her booty while cavorting on the beach for the shoot, explaining she likes to create a “party atmosphere.”
One person who didn’t think Graham’s twerking skills were all that hot was her fellow “America’s Next Top Model” competitor Toccara Jones, who was accosted by TMZ and shown the video. “No, no, no!” she exclaims, laughing, adding that “she is not working the twerk.”
Nearly keeling over from laughter, Jones offers to give Graham some twerking lessons to bring her booty-shaking abilities up to scratch.
On Wednesday, SI unveiled yet another Ashley Graham video of the same twerk but taken from a different angle, and it’s admittedly a bit more impressive. Will it be enough to earn Jones’ respect? Stay tuned…
