UPDATE: In a shocking development, the Dallas Cowboys decided to continue hiring hot cheerleaders for the 2013 season. I know, I thought they were going to go in a different direction last year, too, but here we are. To keep pace with this development, there are a couple of bonus cheerleaders added to the beginning of this feature, so you can see how they stack up against the top 30 of all time. And if you’re a fat, balding, middle-aged dude who wants to be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, maybe they’ll finally hire you for this season.
When is comes to cheerleading, nobody beats the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. For over 40 years, they have been the gold standard for all cheerleaders everywhere. This iconic squad is to cheerleading what the Yankees are to baseball, turkey to Thanksgiving, or football to Monday Nights—which is to say, synonymous.
So with that kind of tradition, it’s not easy to go through and select the 30 hottest women to ever put on a DCC uniform. But you know what? It had to be done for the good of humanity, and I was up to the task. So today I present you with the fruit of my labor.
Now, obviously, fashion trends have changed dramatically over the years, so in some cases you will have to ignore some funny outfits and huge hairdos. Also, as you probably know, they didn’t have digital photography back in the 70s, so some of the pictures are a little grainier than we’re accustomed to. Nevertheless, I think you’ll agree that all the women on this list are worthy representatives of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders legacy. So let’s stop beating around the bush and get to it, shall we?
