Camille Kostek had a packed Super Bowl LVII weekend: she served as a guest co-host of a special SiriusXM radio show and attended Sports Illustrated’s official Big Game party. However, the SI Swimsuit model later revealed that she and her partner, former NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski, didn’t even watch the main event.

Kostek attended the Season 3 red carpet premiere of Outer Banks at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday and admitted to Entertainment Tonight that she and her beau were too busy to tune in.

“This year, we didn’t even watch the Super Bowl!” she told the outlet. “[Rob] shot the first-ever live Super Bowl commercial for FanDuel. He had that Kick of Destiny.”

The 2019 SI Swimsuit Issue cover model went on to share that they had to film the 30-second spot for the sports betting brand during the actual game. Gronkowski ended up not making the live 25-yard kick.

“It was a lot of stress, but congrats to the Chiefs!” she added.

During the SiriusXM radio broadcast, Kostek dished about the 2015 Super Bowl when Gronkowski played for the Patriots and she was a cheerleader for the team—and the two were secretly dating at the time. The dynamic duo met at a team charity event in 2013 and went public with their relationship two years later.

Kostek, who joined the SI Swimsuit franchise during the brand’s Swim Search in 2018, landed the cover of the magazine the following year. She makes her sixth consecutive appearance in the ’23 issue this spring.
