College World Series 2010: Sexiest Alums From Participating Schools
The College World Series field is finally set.
I'm sure everyone is excited to see what happens in a very strong field this year.
But most importantly, you need to know who will be representing your team off the field.
To hold you over until the weekend, here is a look at the sexiest alums from the teams participating in the CWS.
In honor of my alma mater Florida making the field for the first time since finishing second in 2005, alum Kelly Carrington here will lead off the show.
Also, I have decided to celebrate by giving you guys a little bit longer of a list than the usual one per team. I hope you don't mind.
Let the show for Ms. College World Series begin.
13. Ainsley Earhardt (South Carolina)
Earhardt is a correspondent for Fox News.
To up her sexiness quota, Earhardt has completed a half-marathon, gone skydiving with the U.S. Army Golden Knights, and flown in an F-16.
Oh, and it doesn't matter if you love Fox News or hate it, she would make it worth watching.
12. Nancy O'Dell (Clemson)
O'Dell won the South Carolina pageant in 1987.
She later parlayed that into a career, hosting several Miss America and Miss Universe pageants.
I'm sure that resume didn't bowl you over, but she also has brains to boot.
O'Dell graduated Summa Cum Laude from Clemson in 1990.
She has also held up pretty well over the years.
11. Jaime Hammer (Arizona State)
Hammer graduated from Arizona State with a bachelor's in communications in 2004.
Needless to say, she didn't really need her degree with what God gave her.
Hammer let the pages of Playboy and Penthouse communicate everything she needed.
I will let the pictures say the rest.
10. Olivia Munn (Oklahoma)
Munn is a rising actress in Hollywood.
Apparently, she had roles in 2010 films Date Night and Iron Man 2.
Her claim to fame at this point seems to be that Robert Downey Jr. praised her improvisational skills while doing Iron Man 2.
I'm not really sure what to make of that, but if she is good enough for Iron Man, she is good enough for this list.
9. Christine Lakin (UCLA)
You probably don't remember MTV's Wild 'n Out.
But if you do, Lakin and other attractive females were probably a big reason why.
She has also appeared in some commercials and a recent Paris Hilton movie.
Well, I can't say she made the list for her "off-the-field" credentials.
8. Alicia-Monique Blanco (Arizona State)
Blanco was crowned Miss Arizona in 2009.
She finished runner-up for Miss USA 2009.
I'm not sure how she finished No. 2, but at least her Sun Devils are No. 1 heading to Omaha this year.
Sun Devils fans will hope their team looks as good as Blanco.
7. Gabrielle Reece (Florida State)
The multi-talented Reece makes the list for the Seminoles, who are multi-talented in their own right, with 20 CWS appearances.
Reece began a modeling career while attending Florida State.
She was also a very talented volleyball player, helping lead her team to the first-ever Beach Volleyball World Championship.
6. Rachel Specter (Florida)
Specter is a model and actress who graduated from Florida with honors.
She has made cameos in various shows, including How I Met Your Mother and Entourage.
Also, apparently her eyes are 1.5 different colors. I'm not really sure what that means, but it sounds hot.
5. Jenn Sterger (FSU)
Sterger gained her fame when Brent Musberger announced to the world that "1,500 red-blooded Americans just decided to apply to Florida State" when she appeared on camera.
Can't say I really blame guys for going to Tallahassee with an argument like that (had to get that one in there).
Sterger parlayed her "talents" into a modeling career and a stint at Sports Illustrated as an online columnist.
4. Erin Andrews (Florida)
If you don't know who Erin Andrews is then you've probably been living under a rock.
Sure, she might be overexposed.
She might even be overrated.
But it wouldn't be right to leave her off this list.
From talented ESPN reporter to Dancing With the Stars, Andrews also has spanned various media audiences.
That sports knowledge is half of what makes her endearing to fans.
I'm sure you can figure out the other half.
3. Autumn Reeser (UCLA)
Reeser has been a soap opera star in the series The O.C.
She has also played a junior talent agent on Entourage.
She has a list of other cameos, but I'm sure she didn't need a talent agent to land any of those gigs, judging by the pictures.
2. Jenn Brown (Florida)
Yes, there are more Florida alums on here than any other school.
And yes, you can call me a homer all you want.
But in this situation, are you really going to complain about more Gators?
Brown has been dubbed by some to be the next Erin Andrews.
Like Andrews, she has that sports-knowledge appeal from working at ESPN.
And like Andrews, I'm sure you can figure out where the rest of her appeal comes from.
This is one instance when two-of-a-kind is better than one.
1. Kristin Holt Adams (TCU)
In honor of TCU pulling off perhaps the biggest upset of the CWS so far, I give you Kristin Holt Adams.
Some of you may see this as an upset equal to the one TCU pulled off, but she is certainly qualified.
While at TCU, Adams was a member of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
She also was an American Idol semifinalist during the first season.
Adams also hosted G4's Cheat!, a show dedicated to video game cheating, so I think she deserves some bonus points for that one.
Whether or not you read this far, I think the picture is enough qualification.
