The Hottest Ladies of the 2012 Lingerie Football Bowl
For the last several years, the Lingerie Football League has played its championship game during the Super Bowl halftime show, and they'll be doing it again in 2012.
Even if you aren't a regular viewer of LFL games, the championship game is a great alternative to watching a geriatric Madonna shake her bony ass and Skeletor arms on stage for 15 torturous minutes.
Still not entirely on board? Well, I've got a few reasons that just might convince you to switch over to MTV2 during halftime to watch the Philadelphia Passion take on the Los Angeles Temptation. Actually, I've got 31 reasons to be exact.
Here are 31 of the hottest players you can expect to see on the field on Super Bowl Sunday.
Gegi Van De Walker, LA Temptation

Danielle Gassler, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Danielle Gassler
Fun Fact(s): Danielle was a superstar athlete growing up in Pennsylvania—she excelled at softball, field hockey and, particularly, basketball. After high school, she gave up basketball for the LFL because football is her favorite sport.
Danielle Harvey, LA Temptation
Brittania Frazier, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Brittania Frazier
Fun Fact(s): Brittania's personal interests include: fitness, football, track and field, Nike (hope they're paying her!), lean bodies, fashion, modeling, teaching, laughing, great conversation and winning (duh!). She's also a SportsNation fan—a girl after my own heart.
Show some love: Like Brittania on Facebook.
Melissa Margulies, LA Temptation
Name: Melissa Margulies
Fun Fact(s): Melissa hates traffic (and needs some perspective on torture), loves the Packers and likes her some HomesGoods shopping. She also knows how to spend a Sunday—pancaking broads, catching TD passes and cooling off in a champagne shower. (That's how I want to spend every Sunday moving forward.)
Show some love: Follow Melissa on Twitter.
Kia Davidson, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Kia Davidson
Fun Fact(s): Kia doesn't condone sleeping and thinks losing is for losers. She's into fashion, music, entertainment (a little vague), social media (also a little vague), photography, football, track and field and dancing. (Kia's man better be in shape because she seems hard as hell to keep up with!)
Chelsey Haardt, LA Temptation
Name: Chelsey Haardt
Fun Fact(s): Chelsey has a high threshold for pain. ESPN's FirstTake is one of her favorite shows. (Skip Bayless should be officially classified as torture by the government.) She's also a Steelers fan and sarcastic as hell—clearly, she and I are destined to be best friends.
Kylie Fehnel, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Kylie Fehnel
Fun Fact(s): Kylie defends Mark Sanchez to her friends (every group has one), she's a dog person (like all awesome people are), old people make her happy, she loves her some New York Rangers (hockey, yay!), and she hates when crap is expensive (who doesn't?)!
Ogom Chijindu, LA Temptation
Name: Ogom Chijindu
Fun Fact(s): Ogom has modeled her Tweeting style after the ALL CAPS STYLE favored by Kanye West, which means it's almost impossible to read more than a few of her tweets—but I soldiered on. Here's what I learned: Ogom HEARTS FOOTBALL, HEARTS POSITIVE PPL and she's ALWAYS HUNGRY.
Lauren La Bella, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Lauren La Bella
Fun Fact(s): Lauren is the kind of person who tells people to put their food down and go to the gym. (I guess someone has to do it.) Her favorite NFL player is Vernon Davis, she will laugh in your face if she doesn't like your pick-up line, and her favorite member of Wu-Tang is Ghostface Killah (mine is RZA).
Amirah Leonard, LA Temptation
Name: Amirah Leonard
Fun Fact(s): Amirah thinks there's nothing funner than hitting up the gun range with her girlfriends. She's into the Lakers, DeSean Jackson, Rihanna, and she parties so hard that actually dying is a possibility.
Megann Lawrence, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Megann Lawrence
Fun Fact(s): Megann's nickname is Jamaica, but she's not Jamaican, and my girl is not just another pretty face—she's matriculating at Temple University. Megann thinks Dr. Cornel West is crazy real and is jonesing for some discussion time with Harvard's finest.
Nicolle Bate, LA Temptation
Name: Nicolle Bate
Fun Fact(s): Nicolle has a very lovely smile and attended Cal Sate. That's all I've got—kudos to Nicolle for being responsible about her Internet presence.
Show some love: Actually don't. She doesn't have a fan page, and I don't want you harassing her.
Crystal Leach, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Crystal Leach
Fun Fact(s): Crystal is a mother, a model, an airline employee, a "go-getter" and a detail-oriented hard worker who is very social. She's also an Instagram addict. (It really is an addiction; I post dumb pictures around the clock for no reason at all.)
Jasmine Byndloss, LA Temptation
Shanae' Thomas, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Shanae' Thomas
Fun Fact(s): Shanae' had 20 regular-season game tackles this season, she's got killer guns, and that's about all I know because her tweets are protected and her Facebook bio is nonexistent.
Laura Barba, LA Temptation
Name: Laura Barba
Fun Fact(s): Laura's tweets are protected, and she doesn't have a fan page, which are not fun facts. They're un-fun facts.
Show some love: High-five her if you see her at the lingerie bowl.
Whitney Paronish, Philadelphia Passion
Chloe Butler, LA Temptation
Name: Chloe Butler
Fun Fact(s): In Nov. 2011, Chloe broke the arm of opposing quarterback Jana Skrtic into two painful pieces and told an Australian newspaper that the whole thing made her "kind of happy." If S&M is your thing, check out BustedCoverage's Chloe Butler gallery.
Christy Bell, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Christy Bell
Fun Fact(s): There is a message-board thread about Christy entitled "The Chick that (sic) plays QB for the Philadelphia Passion is better than Sanchez." Lol.
Show some love: Stick with cheering her on from a distance; Christy doesn't have a fan page.
Amber Reed, LA Temptation
Name: Amber Reed
Fun Fact(s): Amber's favorite NFL player is Larry Fitzgerald because she thinks he's a great player, and they have the same hairstyle. The best pick-up line she's ever heard is, "If I had a nickel for every time I saw someone as beautiful as you, I'd have five cents." (Play on, playa.)
Show some love: Follow Amber on Twitter.
Angela Perfetto, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Angela Perfetto
Fun Fact(s): Angela is awesome. Is that fun enough for you? She gets drunk on the bus, loves cupcakes and the movie Anchorman, and she thinks "the bachelor" is ugly and the girls on the show are idiots. Angela is likely the coolest girl in any room.
Stephanie Psick, LA Temptation
Tanyka Renee, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Tanyka Renee
Fun Fact(s): Tanyka is crazy hot and has appeared in Playboy, King and Maxim. She's also a fitness fanatic, nutrition and holistic-health professional, author, entrepreneur and a freaking humanitarian. (Dang girl, when do you sleep!?)
Monique Gaxiola, LA Temptation
Name: Monique Gaxiola
Kate Osman, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Kate Osman
Fun Fact(s): Kate flirts with Terrell Owens on Twitter, (probably always) overpacks, watches Jersey Shore (still) to give Sammi career advice and is addicted to CSI: Miami. (David Caruso's animal magnetism strikes again.)
Tessa Barrera, LA Temptation
Name: Tessa Barrera
Fun Fact(s): Tessa has a very broad range of likes—Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lil' Wayne, The Soup, Jeopardy, dancing, wakeboarding, money, learning and The Shawshank Redemption (such a great movie). And if you talk sh*t to her about them, she might break yo' leg.
Jenny Butler, Philadelphia Passion
Name: Jenny Butler
Fun Fact(s): Jenny only tweets sparingly, but I know she loves The Walking Dead, John Legend, Sublime, Republicans, Super Troopers, pole-vaulting and not being poor.
Show some love: Follow Jenny on Twitter.
Natalie Jahnke, LA Temptation
Name: Natalie Jahnke
Fun Fact(s): Natalie is obsessed with candy and would want her last meal to be Laffy Taffy, Sour Patch watermelons, Caramellos, Rolos, Red Hots, Snickers, Reeses and WarHeads. She's also very proud of her sexy feet, likes to kick back with a Blue Moon, wishes she could deep-fry honey mustard and refers to members of law enforcement as the "Po-Po." (I might love this woman).
