Power Ranking the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Rookie Candidates
The famed Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders recently held their auditions and the girls who will attend DCC training camp this summer have been selected. The rookies chosen to attend training camp will be the focus of Season 7 of CMT's Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team.
The selected rookies were among the more than 400 women from all over the world who traveled to Cowboys Stadium on May 5th to audition for the squad. The potential rooks have some pretty big shoes to fill, considering DCC are losing some of their most high profile cheerleaders.
I've done my due diligence in researching the 2012 hopefuls as well as the dearly departing dames of the past. It's impossible to predict with any certainty who will make it and if any of these girls will be able to replace the likes of Kelsi Reich and Ashton Torres—but I've done my best.
Let's take a look at the top 35 rookies chosen to attend DCC training camp as well as six lovely ladies that nobody wants to say goodbye to.
Goodbye: Ann Lux
Goodbye: Sasha Agent
Sasha Agent is a two-year veteran of DCC who is leaving the squad to focus on her role as both a mom and a teacher. She's sad about leaving the squad, but the balancing act has proved to be a bit much for her.

Goodbye: Brittany Evans
Brittany Evans is a four-year veteran of DCC who is ready to say goodbye to the organization and focus on her career as a dance teacher. One of the things she'll miss most is having the opportunity to travel abroad to meet American troops overseas.

Goodbye: Ally Traylor
Ally Traylor is a five-year veteran of DCC who is retiring from the team to focus on her journalism career, which she put on hold for the team. She's also going to be attending an awful lot of weddings this summer.

Goodbye: Ashton Torres
Ashton Torres is a three-year veteran of DCC who is leaving the team to focus on planning her upcoming wedding. Apparently she's got 10 bridesmaids participating in the wedding—that's going to be an adventure.

Goodbye: Kelsi Reich
35. Karrisa Lynae
Name: Karrisa Lynae
Text #5 to 88222 to vote for Karrisa!
Her Chances: 50/50. She tried out last season and made it to training camp because she can make people cry, but she was a very bad dancer.
34. Kayla Denise
Name: Kayla Denise
Text #15 to 88222 to vote for Kayla!
*Aww FB Comment: Love this girl. She was built small! Haters gonna hate
*Eww FB Comment: omg too anorexic! you can see her knee bones! i don't know about ya'll, but these are the worst looking canidates i have seen in years! [People are just as unmerciful harassing people about being skinny as they are about people being fat. How about everyone worries about themselves?]
Her Chances: Hard to say. She's certainly not going to win the audience vote and they are very particular about appearance—but she's got my vote.
33. Kelsey Lauren
Name: Kelsey Lauren
Text #12 to 88222 to vote for Kelsey!
*Aww FB Comment: Love your cheer gear you're so pretty :)
*Eww FB Comment: Odd that she's wearing a watch. I thought no jewelry was allowed except DCC ring & earrings. And wedding rings. [This wasn't really "ew," just kind of strange]
Her Chances: Not great. Apparently she's in her 30's, which isn't old, but it's pretty old to get a start in DCC.
32. Sierra Ann
Name: Sierra Ann
Text #6 to 88222 to vote for Sierra Ann!
*Aww FB Comment: Considering she's still in HIGH SCHOOL, she's pretty much amazing! Love you Sierra!
*Eww FB Comment: NO NO NO NO!!! GROSS!! [People like this need to find themselves a life that doesn't including trolling cheerleaders on the interwebs]
Her Chances: Not good. She's a classic example of the girl who's "not ready" and will be sent home and told to come back the following year.
31. Amy Caroline
Name: Amy Caroline
Text #49 to 88222 to vote for Amy!
*Aww FB Comment: You are Amazing!!! Good luck #1 Cowboy fan in Vegas rootin for ya!
*Eww FB Comment: nice body but I dont like her face [The face of the girl who left this wasn't anything to write home about either.]
Her Chances: 50/50. Don't know much about her, so it's hard to tell at the moment.
30. Casey Nicole
Name: Casey Nicole
Text #22 to 88222 to vote for Casey!
*Aww FB Comment: Amazing!!!!!! You are rocking that uniform!!!!!!!
*Eww FB Comment: To big, not in a mean way, but they wont pick her unleess she sheds weigjt [I wish someone else would learn how to type—not in a mean way]
Her Chances: 50/50. Comments were split on her, but obviously she's gorgeous. Could go either way if she's not an exceptional dancer.
29. Danielle Marie
Name: Danielle Marie
Text #35 to 88222 to vote for Danielle!
Her Chances: Apparently pretty good. She required much more of a makeover than most of the other girls, which means the coaches disliked a lot about her from the start. But, she's a veteran member of the Jets Flight Crew, so that'll give her a huge advantage over the newbs.
28. Ashley Nicole
Name: Ashley Nicole
Text #10 to 88222 to vote for Ashley!
Her Chances: She definitely has a slightly more athletic build than some of the other girls, but I think she's got a good shot.
27. Kristen Sherice
Name: Kristen Sherice
Text #3 to 88222 to vote for Jordan!
Her Chances: I watch Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team every season and this looks like the kind of girl that those mean old ladies make cry and, ultimately, send home. Not good.
26. Meghan Jo
Name: Meghan Jo
Text #23 to 88222 to vote for Meghan Jo!
*Aww FB Comment: You can't get a better ambassador for your team. Incredible dancer, kind heart, compassionate soul, dedicated worker, beautiful person!
*Eww FB Comment: Pretty lady I like her hair, needs to tone tummy [She'll hear much worse from their coaches and trainers]
Her Chances: Not good at all. I watch the show and they are going to tell her she needs to lose weight and, even if she does, they'll cut her anyway.
25. Emma Ann
Name: Emma Ann
Text #64 to 88222 to vote for Emma!
*Aww FB Comment: you dudes couldn't pull that in your dreams. lighten up [So true. Kudos to the dude who spoke up]
*Eww FB Comment: ok who let the ... out LOL this one goes to the niners!!! [Mike Wood had something like this to say about most of the girls. He sucks.]
Her Chances: 50/50. Comments were pretty mixed with her, but if she can dance, she's got as good a shot as anyone.
24. Micki Le-Ling
23. Alex Hermes
Name: Alex Hermes
Text #19 to 88222 to vote for Alex!
*Aww FB Comment: abs! heck yes. time to start finding the fitness model types to try and support the more healthy image
*Eww FB Comment: What is that color....? Is that Snooki orange? LOL [Mean, but true]
Her Chances: Not great. She looks ridiculously in shape, but they are going to take issue with that tan for sure.
22. Carla Ann
Name: Carla Ann
Text #62 to 88222 to vote for Carla!
*Aww FB Comment: I most definitely could see her on TV or some other print if she doesn't make it as a Cowboys Cheerleader. She naturally "has it!!"
*Eww FB Comment: Oh sista,baby got back! [A very old white man left this comment and it made me lol]
Her Chances: 50/50. She's young and I don't think she's tried out before.
21. Laura Allison
Name: Laura Allison
Text #57 to 88222 to vote for Laura!
Her Chances: Not great. Commenters seemed to think she looks older than some of the other girls. She'll have to really impress the coaches with her moves if they think she looks old.

19. Crystal Rae
18. Sarah Yvette
17. Kim Nicole
16. Jenna Lee
Name: Jenna Lee

12. Olivia Rene
Name: Olivia Rene
Text #44 to 88222 to vote for Olivia!
Her Chances: She's a lock. If the Rockette thing is true, she's obviously a great dancer and won't have any trouble mastering those kick lines.
11. Kelly Janelle
Name: Kelly Janelle
Text #24 to 88222 to vote for Kelly!
*Aww FB Comment: GO KELLY!!! You SO totally deserve this! I know you've been working so hard for this and dreaming about it forever! It's finally at your reach and I know you can totally do this!!!
*Eww FB Comment: meh [Sure, dude. You'd totally turn her down]

9. Paige Alexandra
Name: Paige Alexandra
Text #32 to 88222 to vote for Paige!
*Aww FB Comment: went to high school with this girl!! she is gorgeous and definitely deserves a spot!
*Eww FB Comment: I would vote for Paige but I asked her to accept my friend request, twice and she never would. What goes around comes around. [What a creeper]
Her Chances: If she can dance, she's a lock. She looks like she was born to be a Cowboys cheerleader.
Text #26 to 88222 to vote for Miho!
Her Chances: Pretty good. She's absolutely stunning so, assuming she can dance, I bet she makes it.
7. Kali Nicole
Name: Kali Nicole
Text #29 to 88222 to vote for Kali!
*Aww FB Comment: Woah. She looks like Jessica Simpson.

Her Chances: Excellent. This girl is Dallas personified.
6. Jasmine Raphella
Name: Jasmine Raphella
Text #9 to 88222 to vote for Jasmine!

Text #11 to 88222 to vote for Jennifer!
*Aww FB Comment: I have the privilege of calling this beautiful woman my friend. She's GORGEOUS talented and super sweet :) so nice shes #1 twice ♥
*Eww FB Comment: she's just ok [Naturally the guy who said this is a total loser]
Her Chances: Excellent. Well, that's assuming they love her as much as the commenters do. She had almost no negative comments at all.
3. Rachel Le-Ann
Name: Rachel Le-Ann
Text #69 to 88222 to vote for Rachel!
Her Chances: Pretty much a lock. People are straight up obsessed with this girl and the DCC could use a little more color—specifically red.
2. Kinzie Ryanne
Name: Kinzie Ryanne
Text #5 to 88222 to vote for Kinzie!
Her Chances: She's a lock. People are absolutely in love with this girl and if she gets even half that reaction at training camp, there's no chance she doesn't make it.

Text #39 to 88222 to vote for Jordan!
Her Chances: Judging by the comments, she is definitely one of the most popular potential rookies. She's a lock if she's got the moves.
