Girls of a certain type always want to become cheerleaders, not just any cheerleaders of course, but football cheerleaders. Being a football cheerleader in high school usually means you are hot. If you become a cheerleader for a division 1 team in college then you are almost certainly hot. And if you are an NFL cheerleader, there is almost no doubt at all, that you are ridiculously hot. And there you are, an NFL cheerleader, you have made it to the absolute top of the cheerleading game.
Except you haven’t. Being an NFL Cheerleader is one thing, but that is nothing compared to being an NFL Cheerleader for one specific team. To truly reach the top of the cheerleading game, you have to become a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader.
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have been at the pinnacle forever. They have done calendars for years. With the recent show Making the Team on Country Music Television, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader brand is hotter than ever. Here are the ten hottest cheerleaders, both past and present, that have cheered for the Dallas Cowboys.
10. Mackenzie Lee Weeks
Mackenzie became a big favorite of everyone’s when she was the underdog in Making the Team in 2011. Even though she was not a favorite to make the team, she has the total package, with gorgeous looks, solid dance technique, lots of power and good projection, but she just couldn’t get her kicks high enough for the signature kick line. In the end, through her hard work and dedication, her kicks improved enough to earn her a spot on the squad. Her hometown is Saint Augustine, Florida and she cheered for Florida State University. She recently got married.
9. Brittany Schram
Brittany was originally cut in the 2010 season training camp tryout but she came back to make the team in 2011 and cheered four seasons. She is from Dallas, Texas. To show how little some folks think of the ability of cheerleaders to do anything, there was a post recently about how Brittany Schram and one of her teammates jumped a car battery by themselves. Brittany tweeted, “Excited to say that I just jumped a car battery with @dCC_Hollie (teammate Holly Arielle) all by ourselves. So I’m like basically a mechanic now.”
8. Mia Greenhouse
Mia is gorgeous. She practically grew up dancing in a studio from the age of 3 when she moved to Texas. The beautiful Greenhouse cheered through high school and auditioned for the Cowboys’ cheerleading squad at the end of her senior year.
When asked why she auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, she said “I was fortunate to take Camp DCC and be selected as a part of the Junior DCC program for 5 years. It was my goal and dream to become a DCC and make an impact on others the way cheerleaders made their mark on me. “What I didn’t expect was that I would be impacted by so many people I’ve met during my experiences in return.” The feeling is mutual Mia.
7. Whitney Isleib
Whitney is gorgeous, and an amazing dancer as well. Her judgment might be a little off though, as one Halloween she dressed up as Lil’ Wayne, wearing black face and all.
When asked what advice she would give someone thinking of becoming a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, she said “for someone thinking of auditioning, I would give them one sentence: Be a true lady. Obviously dance ability and physical fitness is a must, but the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are so much more. We are intelligent women with huge hearts, who are understanding and trustworthy of holding the standards of an American sweetheart.”
6. Sarah Shahi
Sarah Shahi is from Texas. Her father is of Iranian heritage. She started appearing in pageants when she was only eight years old, winning a few of those beauty pageants before joining the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders in the 1999-2000 season.
She made the cover of the squad’s calendar before moving to Los Angeles to become an actress. She has since appeared in many TV shows such as Person of Interest and The L-Word. Shahi is an example of what being a Cowboys’ cheerleader can do for a career.
5. Kristin Holt
The extremely hot Kristin Adams attended Texas Christian University. During her time at the university, she made the 12-person Dallas Cowboys’ Cheerleaders squad. While she has appeared as a host of many different TV shows and specials, and has been a correspondent for the Fox network, she is best known for being a contestant on American Idol. She finished in the semi-finals in 2008.
Holt is now married and has two children. Life after cheerleading has been pretty great for one-time Cowboy cheerleader.
4. Melissa Rycroft
Melissa Rycroft went to North Texas University and danced for the team from 2006 to 2008. Melissa has been all over the place as of late, that is if you watch reality television. She has been a judge on Making the Team and serves as a mentor to the girls on the squad.
Rycroft has also been a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. But none of it would have been possible without The Bachelor, where although she won her season, her husband-to-be called the engagement off after he admitted he was in love with runner-up, Molly Malaney. That was a drag for Melissa, but worse for the idiot winner who turned her down. She was cheerleader for crying out loud.
Abigail is a gorgeous blonde who became a cheerleader in 2007 when she was fresh out of high school. Since then, she has gotten a pretty high profile. She dated NFL legend Troy Aikman for a while and has appeared in movies with Adam Sandler.
When asked what people don’t know about being a cheerleader, she said “being a part of the most iconic cheerleading squad ever was an exhilarating experience and a great honor. Performing at Cowboys stadium was so much fun. I made my closest friends while being a part of the organization for those three years. It was pretty much the ultimate sorority. I’m forever bonded with women who cheered.” And we’re forever bonded with you, Abigail.
2. Micaela Johnson
Micaela Johnson was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from the years 2003 to 2005. A few years later, she became the winner of Miss Nebraska pageantry in 2008. Over the years, she has appeared in numerous TV shows with roles on Greek, Castle, and the TV movie Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire.
According to her official site, she enjoys “rhinestoning just about everything” and cooking “Dr. Pepper Cake.” Why is it that hot girls can get away with being into things like this?
1. Erica Kiehl Jenkins
Erica Kiehl Jenkins is from Dallas, Texas. She began dancing when she was eight years old. After graduating high school, Erica became a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader before she moved to Los Angeles where she began working as a professional dancer. Being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader was hot but being a cheerleader and a member of the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque made her even hotter. And if that wasn’t hot enough, in 2012 she joined Le Noir, The Dark Side of Cirque, which is an artistic circus.
Erica was a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, a performer in the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque, a circus performer, and is now competing in pole fitness competitions? This is why Erica is number 1 in this list of the top 10 hottest Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
