Today’s list, as you have probably gathers, is about cheerleader sex scandals.
There of course are many varieties of sex scandals. You’ve got your political sex scandals. Your celebrity sex scandals. And let’s not forget your teacher sex scandals. But none are as salacious as cheerleader sex scandals. Why? Well it’s not rocket science. Cheerleader sex scandals involve cheerleaders. And anything involving cheerleaders is sexier than anything not involving cheerleaders. Right?
That being said, cheerleader sex scandals aren’t all fun and games. Some of them involve minors being used or taken advantage. Others involve legal-but-impressionable young people making poor life decisions. So some of the scandals you’ll read about here are definitely amusing, but others are just…well, kind of sad.
I’ll let you figure out which is which.
First up, we have the so-called "Fab Five" of McKinney High School in McKinney, Texas. They're last on the list because the sexual aspects of this scandal are relatively mild. Basically, a bunch of popular cheerleaders took sexy photos of themselves—including some at a condom store holding penis-shaped candles— and put them on MySpace. (That's right, MySpace. It was 2006, dammit.)
However, the sexy pics of teenage cheerleaders, while not explicit, drew a lot of attention. And pretty soon it was discovered that this little clique was well-known for terrorizing teachers and classmates, skipping classes, and pretty much doing whatever the hell they wanted because they thought they were hot sh*t.
When media started snooping around, people were falling over each other trying to rat the "mean girls" out. Then it was discovered that one of them was the daughter of McKinney principal Linda Theret, which pretty much pissed everybody off.
Oh, and if all this sounds familiar to you, it might be cause they made a Lifetime movie about it.
13. The McKinney Fab Five
In 2008, Arizona State University threatened to disband the cheerleading program altogether when a series of photos of cheerleaders in their underwear began circulating the web.
As you can see, the photos aren't even that racy, so it might seem like the ASU administration was overreacting. However, they appeared on the heels of another very racy ASU cheerleader sex scandal that caused a big headache for the higher ups. (Just hold your horses. We'll get to thatscandal eventually.) So the ASU administration was starting to get worried about the school's reputation.
Fortunately for the ASU cheerleading program, it was eventually revealed that the photos were taken two years earlier, before the cheerleaders were told to be on their best behavior. So the program did not get the ax.
12. ASU Panty Party
Winnipeg is not known for being a particularly wild town. However, in the summer of 2008, some of the cheerleaders for the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers proved to the world that Winnipeggers can party with the best of them.
How did they do that? By taking a bunch of sexy pics of themselves in uniform or at team facilities (like this one), which somehow leaked onto the internet.
Of course the Blue Bombers pretended to be upset. But let's be real—this was great PR for a sports team almost nobody in North America even knew existed.
11. Wild in Winnipeg
You've probably never heard of Orange Coast College. In fact, it sounds totally made up, like a school the kids on The O.C. would have gone to or something. But apparently it's a real school, apparently they have cheerleaders, and apparently in 2008, after competing in one of those cheerleading competitions you see on ESPN2, they got wasted in their Vegas hotel room and took a bunch of scandalous picture of them in their underwear.
10. Orange Coast College Cheerleaders Go Wild
I don't remember John Denver singing about wild cheerleaders taking off their clothes at parties and performing strip shows in "Take Me Home, Country Roads." But the song was written in 1971. Things change. Sometimes a lot.
For example, in 2010, the folks over at Busted Coverage received a tip from a reader that the West Virginia Mountaineers cheerleaders were going absolutely bonkers in Morgantown. So they started collecting evidence and eventually published an entire gallery of the WVU cheerleaders' sexy shenanigans.
As you can see, we've obscured the faces of the women in the raciest photos. Sorry, but we think it's best they get the chance to move past from their poor decision-making.
9. WVU Cheerleaders Party Topless
To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever called Sacramento the Miami of Northern California because of its wild party scene. But don't tell that to the Sacramento Kings cheerleaders. Back in 2008, a particularly wild bunch of them caused a stir when they took a bunch of photos of themselves partying—including this one of four cheerleaders showing off their g-strings.
We've obscured the backsides here because it's just a little too NSFW. If you want the unobstructed view, click here.
8. Sacramento G-String Party
Apparently 2008 was a good year for cheerleader sex scandals. First the ASU underwear party, then the Orange Coast College underwear party, then the Sacramento Kings g-string cabaret, and now this.
Who is this, you ask? Well, at the time she was an Indiana cheerleader. However, after these photos hit the web—which she apparently sent to her boyfriend, who then posted them online after they broke up—we're thinking she was probably released from the squad.
Once again, as you can see, we've decided to obscure this girl's face so as to not keep dredging up the past.
7. The Naked Hoosier
Coming in at #6 we have one of the most famous cheerleader scandals of all time, and for good reason.
In 2005, these two women—who were Carolina Panthers cheerleaders at the time—were arrested at a bar in Tampa for living out what I assume is every heterosexual male's ultimate fantasy.
What did they do? They "had sex" (not sure what that means here) in a bathroom stall, which pissed off other patrons waiting in line to use the toilet and started a brawl.
The funny thing? While the Panthers were in town to play the Bucs, the Topcats Cheerleaders were not. They only perform at home games. So these two lovebirds traveled to Tampa to support the team on their own.
6. Bathroom Tryst
Here's a cheerleader sex scandal that's just plain sad. In August of 2008, two cheerleaders at Bothell High School in Bothell, Washington, became infamous when n decided to take nude and semi-nude photos of each other so they could sext their boyfriends. However, as almost always happens in situations like these, the boyfriends show or sent the pictures to their friends, and pretty soon everyone on the football team had seen them.
The crazy thing? It doesn't seem as though anyone ever got in any serious trouble with the law for this. The boys apparently got off scot-free, while the girls simply received suspensions from the cheerleading squad.
I thought the dissemination of child pornography was kind of a big deal.
5. Bothell High Naked Cheerleader Scandal
The woman on the right is Jill Moore. She was the cheerleading coach at Ware Shoals High School in South Carolina until 2007, when he decided to play madam and recruit 16-year-old girls to have sex with her boyfriend's buddies. Nice.
The woman on the right? That's Jane Blackwell. She was the principal as Ware Shoals High when all this went down in 2007. She was arrested for obstruction of justice after telling all the cheerleaders not to say anything to the police.
Why the coverup? Authorities believed she knew the coach was giving her cheerleaders booze and didn't do anything.
Bad principal! Bad!
4. The High School Cheerleading Madame
At #3 we have the sad, disturbing case of former Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck. According to authorities, she took a liking to one of her 15-year-old son's school friends and struck up a relationship with him on Instagram. This then escalated to makeout sessions in the back of her Escalade and, eventually, oral sex at the family's Delaware beach house this past summer.
According to the 15-year-old boy, who apparently wasn't entirely down with all of Mrs. S's advances, she offered to have sex with him but he declined. Then he went to authorities.
The smoking gun? The kid gave a pretty accurate description of the lingerie Shattuck was wearing that night at the beach house, and police found it when they raided the place.
3. Molly Shattuck Beds Son’s Buddy
At number two we have another twisted case of an NFL cheerleader preying on a teenage boy.
Of course, we like to joke that nailing an NFL cheerleader is every teenage boy's ultimate fantasy, and in truth it probably is. But that doesn't make it right.
In the case of Sarah Jones here, she was a 26-year-old married woman, Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader, a high school teacher when she got in trouble for sleeping with one of her 17-year-old students in 2012.
The silver lining to this story, if you want to call it that? Jones and the student actually got engaged in 2013. So at least...I don't know...something.
Should be fun telling the grandkids how they met.
2. Mrs. Jones Shacks Up
The number one biggest cheerleader sex scandal ever? That would have to be the time an Arizona State cheerleader named Courtney Simpson dropped out of school, became a porn star, and filmed an adult movie (Gina Lynn's Double Dutch) while wearing her ASU cheerleading uniform.
Arizona State threatened to sue the production company of that particular video for infringement of trademarks and intellectual property rights. So producer Gina Lynn agreed to alter the video so as to obscure the ASU on the front of her shirt.
As you can see, we've had to obscure...other things.
