The Victoria’s Secret Angels are back.
Unlike the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the Swim Special – airing tonight – is not a runway show, but a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into filming the Victoria’s Secret swimsuit campaign. The Angels are on location in Puerto Rico, and by the looks of the trailer, they’re having the time of their lives: Behati Prinsloo dances around the campfire to the sounds of her man Adam Levin and his band Maroon 5, Alessandra Ambrosio gets fierce on the beach volleyball court, and Joan Smalls prances and giggles alongside a small horse.
But it isn’t all fun and games. Photographer Russell James is always looking for the next great shot, and Behati says things can get “a little scary” sometimes. From jumping off boulders into the depths of the unknown sea to struggling to pose in harsh waves, the Angels are basically like contestants on Survivor. Except in cute swimwear. And with professional hair and makeup. Here’s hoping they remembered their sunscreen.
Tune into the show on Global tonight at 10pm ET.
