Top Five Most Marketable Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders: A Fan’s View
"Watch 60 beautiful women vie to become a Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleader," says a report on the Kimmel Center website. "These gorgeous and talented finalists were selected out of hundreds of contestants that auditioned. On April 24th, they will compete in front of celebrity judges and a live audience in Swimsuit & Physical Fitness, Dance, and On-Stage Interview competitions. The stakes are high as only 38 women will ultimately gain a coveted place on this elite NFL squad."
In honor of the season ahead, here's a look back at the top five most marketable babes from the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles' cheerleading roster:
"I've never seen anyone so die-hard and excited about a team; the support they give is unlimited and so strong," she says of Eagles fans.
I adore Lauren's golden, wavy Taylor Swift-esque locks and bright eyes that could light up a room.
According to her team bio, the key to staying in cheerleading shape is just staying confident. "Be consistent! It helps me to just be mindful of my diet and to eat what I want but in moderation," she says. "For example, you can have a stack of pancakes for breakfast on the weekend if you cut out the butter and use only a little syrup. I also am on my feet all day with my students so I am always active."
On the team site, she let fans know about her favorite appearance as an Eagles cheerleader. "My rookie year I was invited to play as a featured celebrity in a celebrity charity poker tournament in New York hosted by Alex Rodriguez and Jay-Z. I love poker, so of course I was excited to see how well I would play against other poker professionals as well as star athletes and artists," she said. "My director and I took a limo up to N.Y., walked the red carpet complete with paparazzi, mingled with the guests and finally sat down to play some poker. Throughout the event, I also interviewed various artists and actors for a television feature. The whole event was amazing and it definitely put into perspective the celebrity aura surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders."
"He is one of the most explosive, inspiring players in the league because of his talent and passion for the sport," she says in her team bio. "There is never a dull moment when #10 has the ball, he is such an entertainer."
"When Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson work together during plays in a game they are just unstoppable," she says in her bio.
The Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders perform for over 67,000 fans at Philadelphia Eagles home games at Lincoln Financial Field, and Kelsey has been one of the most entertaining athletes to watch on the sidelines over the past two seasons.
