9 Hottest Girlfriends of Derek Jeter’s Career
As Derek Jeter’s career comes to a ceremonious close, everyone and their dog is running lists and commemorations for the loyal Yankee. However, we’d like to acknowledge his off-the-field pursuits. And his off-the-field conquests. So let’s lock back on Jeter’s career with famous, beautiful women. Remember: It’s okay to be jealous and angry that his life is not your own. But take solace in knowing that all these relationships are in the past, and these women are available for you to court. *giggle*
I put her at 9th, just because I don’t like her very much and wanted to smack about her a little bit. I’m sure that Jeter’s dated 9 hotter women, but listing them wouldn’t give me a chance to talk about Minnillo. I don’t have anything personal against her, but she was on MTV’s TRL long after it was bearable, and is just one of those people who’s sort of famous for who they date. I mean, everyone else on this list is at least famous for dating Jeter, but some have some real, otherworldly talent behind them, like…
9. Vanessa Minnillo
Mariah Carey has done okay for herself since her breakup with Derek Jeter. Before meeting him, she was already the most popular singer in the world. Since then, she’s rolled back a little professionally, and she even entered a slightly overweight and crazy phase that I found to be really sexy. But now she’s sort of back to normal, living it up with husband Nick Cannon in one of probably ten thousand houses they own.
8. Mariah Carey
While Ms. Brewster’s acting career never really took off following her commanding(ly hot) performance in The Fast and the Furious, she didn’t get less hot. Just less successful artistically and commercially. Oh well. DJ has enough professional and financial success to share, so don’t sweat it. Unfortunately, they were only together from 2002-2003, so she’s probably been on her own for a LONG time.
7. Jordana Brewster
Lara Dutta won the Miss Universe contest in 2000, which, by their standards, means at one point Derek Jeter wasn’t just dating “a hot girl” or “the hottest girl on Earth,” but “the most attractive woman in the Universe.” Of course, their standards of beauty involve things like baton twirling and discussing world peace and children – many of ours do not. So regardless of whether you think she’s the hottest girl in THE UNIVERSE, we can all agree she’s really, really hot.

Ok. Now we’re getting somewhere. This Victoria’s Secret and SI Swimsuit Issue staple hails from Brazil and is easily in the conversation for the hottest woman in the world. They were together following his breakup with Jordana Brewster in 2003, and she seems to have maintained her looks ever since. She’s got the Benjamin Button/Dorian Gray/Choose Your Analogy-thing going on where she doesn’t appear to have aged at all since her heyday ten years ago. Jeter, who's a bit older on the other hand, appears to have been repeatedly inflated and drained with compressed air for the past three years or so.
5. Adriana Lima
Minka Kelly is incredibly hot and was awesome on Friday Night Lights. Fun fact: She was born “Minka Dufay.” Adopting “Kelly” was a pretty wise move on her end. Also, her dad was in Aerosmith and her mom was a stripper. Those are my two favorite occupations, so she’s clearly floating in the deep end of the gene pool. Though she appeared in The Butler, and the short-lived reboot of Charlie’s Angels, she’ll always be Lyla Garrity to us...And hot. She’ll also always be hot to us.

Hannah Davis is a 24 year-old supermodel who grew up in St. Thomas. This girl knows what privilege is. She’s taken on work in last year’s SI Swimsuit Issue, Victoria’s Secret, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi’s. She and Jeter have been on-again, off-again for the past two years, which a publicist would probably spin as “just good friends,” but I will spin as “just hot sex.” Apparently Jeter was upset at a sexy photo shoot she took for SI. Really, Derek? That’s pretty petty when you look at this roster of women.

At 33 years old, Jessica Alba has done very well for herself both before and after dating the Yankee shortstop. They dated in 2004, the same year he dated Scarlett Johansson. That’s a pretty good year for sex. I mean, if I slept with just ONE of those two, I’d be like (YEAR X) was a pretty good year for me, sexually.” Anyway, for those who don’t know, Jessica Alba is a very hot actress who has starred in things like Sin City, Honey, and Dark Angel. She’s also very hot. Oh, so very hot.
2. Jessica Alba
Scarlett Johansson is an actress who has gone on to great success since breaking up with Jeter in 2004. She’s voiced a phone operating system, been an Avenger, gotten all Lost in Translation, and been a recent muse of Woody Allen. She has been declared the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire in 2006 and 2013, and Sexiest Celebrity by Playboy in 2007. Her career and looks continue to improve as Jeter’s face gets slightly doughier every day. Yeah, I’m a little angry-jealous at Jeter after writing this list. That bastard.
