Erin Andrews and Other Sports Hotties Who Need a Bikini Shoot

0 of 42

    If there's one thing we know, it's that the sports world is filled with hot women.

    Whether they're athletes, WAGs or reporters, their mere presence makes sports more enjoyable for all involved.

    While there are many women in sports that are willing to show a little skin for our pleasure (pretty much all of them can be found on this site), there are a few who are a little more reserved.

    This slideshow is a plea to all the sports hotties out there who have yet to do a bikini shoot (or at least one that I can find). Some of these ladies have taken a few pictures in bikinis, but we're talking about doing a full bikini shoot like you'd see in Maxim or SI

    If your name is on this list, please consider donning a bathing suit, hitting the beach and glancing provocatively at the camera.

    I know at least one cameraman who will do the shoot for free.

Honorable Mention: Zuleyka Rivera

1 of 42

    The former Miss Universe 2006 is dating Mavericks backup point guard JJ Barea.

    The couple seems happy, despite Barea standing a couple of inches shorter than Rivera. The former beauty queen has yet to do a full bikini shoot.

    Isn't that the first thing you do if you're a former beauty queen? 

Honorable Mention: Rima Fakhi

2 of 42

    Rima Fakih won the Miss USA 2010 pageant and entered the world of sports when she started dating Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero.

    While Fakih has a few pictures in bikinis, she has yet to do a full bikini shoot. If she did one picture and it turned out like this, why would she not do more? 

40. Molly Qerim

3 of 42

    Yes, Alex, I'll take "Hot Sports Reporters Whose Last Names Start With Q" for $2000, please.

    Molly may have a strange last name, but she more than makes up for it with her appearance. She's been a correspondent for MMA Live and Fantasy Football Now on ESPN 2.

    We wish she would host a shot called Bikini Shoot Live or Swimsuit Now.

39. Sue Bird

4 of 42

    There's not much of a reason to watch the WNBA, but Sue Bird almost makes it tolerable. The former UConn standout is an eight-time WNBA All-Star.

    The only thing missing from her resume? A hot bikini shoot. 

38. Hannah Storm

5 of 42

    Hannah Storm has been all over the sports world for years, and you can see her on SportsCenter almost every morning.

    She's just about the right age to do a "Hey, I'm still hot" bikini shoot. How about "Stormy Weather" featuring her on a beach in the rain.

    I like it. I should really change careers.

37. Rachel Nichols

6 of 42

    You've seen her on the sidelines of countless games, but we've yet to see her in a swimsuit. In fact, it seems as if ESPN's Rachel Nichols is always covered head to toe (don't confuse her with the actress Rachel Nichols, who is not at all afraid to show it off).

    That just makes us want to see what's underneath that much more.

36. Ellie Harvey Day

7 of 42

    It's hard to even find a picture of Ellie Harvey Day, let alone a bikini shoot.

    She's married to golfer Jason Day, and she got an above-average amount of airtime while he was in contention at the Masters. She'd continue to get airtime if only she'd do us a favor and pose in a bikini.

35. Bonnie Bernstein

8 of 42

    The sideline reporter more affectionately known as "B-squared" has entertained us with her sideline reporting on ESPN and CBS.

    Now it's time she entertains us in a swimsuit.

34. Kyra Gracie

9 of 42

    This MMA hottie is a member of the famous Gracie fighting family. With all those brothers and uncles keeping an eye on her, I can see why she's yet to do a bikini shoot.

    Still, if she can get away with pictures like this, surely a swimsuit isn't too far away. Plus, they're from Brazil so she should be used to walking around in a bikini.

33. Hope Solo

10 of 42

    Usually when you think of a female goalie you think of a big ugly girl who can't play anywhere else—at least I do.

    That's certainly not the case with Hope Solo, the goalie for the U.S. Women's Soccer Team. She's got the beauty and the all she needs is the bikini.

32. Sage Steele

11 of 42

    You may recognize Sage Steele from the SportsCenter updates in the morning. As far as I can tell, she's of no relation to this Steel.

    In any case, she's a hottie that we'd like to see let loose a little bit.

31. Alex Flanagan

12 of 42

    Alex Flanagan works for the NFL Network and is also a sideline reporter for NBC during Notre Dame home games.

    Alex is creeping up on a lot of people's lists of hottest sports reporters, so it's about time she put on the bikini.

30. Suzy Kolber

13 of 42

    Joe Namath wondered what it would be like to kiss her. We wonder what she looks like in a bikini.

    Suzy has become one of the top sideline reporters out there, currently working for ESPN. She's usually bundled up on the sidelines, but I bet she's got a nice little body working underneath all those clothes.

29. Kerry Vera

14 of 42

    Kerry Vera is a fighter known for winning a reality TV show called Fight Girls on Oxygen. Since then, she's gone on to a prolific career.

    She's also known for being married to fellow fighter Brandon Vera, but one thing she's not known for is taking pictures in a bikini.

    She already walks around in a sports bra and short it really that big of a stretch?

28. Melissa Stark

15 of 42

    Melissa Stark is a reporter known for her work on Monday Night Football, ESPN and NBC.

    Melissa is making the transition out of sports reporting, so why not give the sports fans one final goodbye with an all-out bikini shoot?

27. Kara Henderson

16 of 42

    Kara is a sideline reporter for the NFL Network on a show called NFL Total Access.

    Actually, Kara, it's more like Partial Access. If it were Total Access, you'd have a bikini shoot.

26. Mary Strong

17 of 42

    Mary Strong is an NFL Network reporter who can sometimes be mistaken for Paris Hilton. She used to play volleyball at Loyola Marymount, so she must occasionally make some appearances in a bikini on the beach volleyball courts.

    All you have to do is bring a camera, Mary.

25. Vanessa Bryant

18 of 42

    Vanessa Bryant has surprisingly managed to stay out of the limelight for most of Kobe's career...with one obvious exception.

    She rarely gets shown at games and you never see her on TMZ. After Kobe finally gives up basketball in 2035, I'm hoping she'll volunteer her services for the SI wives swimsuit pictorial. 

24. Laura Lane

19 of 42

    Besides sounding like someone Clark Kent would date, Laura Lane is a reporter who is known for hosting ESPN's poker show, Inside Deal.

    If Lane ever does a bikini shoot, we'll be sure to get the inside deal on it. 

23. Cassidy Hubbarth

20 of 42

    Cassidy is the host of SEC Gridiron Live on She's still early in her career, so maybe she's following in the footsteps of her predecessors by holding off on the swimsuit pictures.

    Here's a chance to be your own woman and blaze your own trail, Cassidy. Are you woman enough to take it?

22. Erin Nicole

21 of 42

    Erin Nicole is a sideline reporter for the Detroit Pistons, which gives people exactly one reason to visit Detroit.

    If Erin had produced a nice bikini shoot, there definitely would not have been any Malice at the Palace.

21. Beatriz Recari

22 of 42

    Recari is a Spanish golfer who plays on the LPGA tour.

    Hot golfers like Natalie Gulbis and Anna Rawson have already set the precedent for bikini shoots, so there's no reason why Recari can't follow in their footsteps. 

20. Wendi Nix

23 of 42

    Wendi Nix is an anchor and reporter for ESPN and she specializes in NFL and college football.

    She sometimes conducts one-on-one interviews with athletes, which must make it extremely difficult for them to concentrate.

19. Michelle Beadle

24 of 42

    Michelle Beadle teams up with Colin Cowherd to host SportsNation on ESPN. In the show they ask America how they feel about certain issues and take polls.

    I'll save them the time on this one: 100 percent of sports fans want to see Michell Beadle in a bikini.

18. Hazel Mae

25 of 42

    Hazel Mae used to work for NESN as the Red Sox sideline reporter, but she's made the switch over the the MLB Network.

    That's good news, since now people outside of Boston get to look at her every day. It would be much better to look at her if she were wearing a bikini.

17. Milka Duno

26 of 42

    We've all heard of Danica Patrick (who's done plenty of work in a bikini), but another hot race car driver is Venezuelan Milka Duno.

    She is a former model, but I couldn't find any pictures of her in a bikini. Danica figured out a long time ago that she needed to show some skin to market herself.

    It's about time Milka did the same thing.

16. Tanith Belbin

27 of 42

    Tanith is at the top of most people's list of sports hotties, which makes it even harder to believe that she's never done a bikini shoot.

    She did take a provocative photo for Men's Health, but still no bikini. You'd think a girl that skates in skimpy outfits for a living wouldn't mind showing some skin.

15. Michelle Beisner

28 of 42

    That is underwear...not a bikini.

    Michelle Beisner works for the NFL Network now, but she used to be a Broncos cheerleader. Chances are she did some calendars for them where she took pictures in a bikini, but I can't find any.

    Even if they do exist, we wouldn't mind an update.

14. Lindsay Soto

29 of 42

    I have a personal acquaintance with Lindsay Soto after living in L.A. my whole life. She used to cover the Lakers for Fox Sports before joining the NFL Network in 2008.

    After spending all that time in Southern California you'd think there would be some pictures of her in a bikini out there.

13. Kiira Korpi

30 of 42

    Kiira Korpi is a Finnish figure skater (ice, not roller) who has won several European and Finnish championships.

    She's been on our radar as an athlete hottie for a while now, but still no bikini shoot. Hopefully in a few years she'll quit skating and turn to swimsuit modeling.

12. Allison Stokke

31 of 42

    Allison Stokke is a pole vaulter who has achieved Internet fame for being one of the hottest athletes in the world.

    Stokke was in high school (18 years old, don't worry) when most of the photos surfaced, so now that she's vaulting in college it might be time for her to think about getting back in the spotlight.

    A bikini shoot couldn't hurt.

11. Elena Dementieva

32 of 42

    Elena Dementieva is a top-ranked women's tennis player who has done her fair share of photo shoots. So far, however, she has yet to do the swimsuit.

    Tennis stars like Ana Ivanovic and of course Anna Kournikova have gone before her. Just because you're name isn't Anna doesn't mean you can't do a bikini shoot.

10. Sara Carbonero

33 of 42

    Sara Carbonero is a double threat. She's a WAG who's dating Spanish goalie Iker Casillas, but she's also a sideline reporter for soccer in Spain.

    She got in some trouble for allegedly distracting her boyfriend in the 2010 World Cup, allowing a goal to slip by him in a loss to Switzerland.

    All the more reason to take people's mind off it with a hot bikini shoot. 

9. Mellisa Hollingsworth

34 of 42

    Hollingsworth is a Canadian skeleton racer, which is probably why you've never heard of her. For those that don't know, skeleton is a ridiculously dangerous's basically the luge but head first.

    Here's a picture of Hollingsworth doing it...and her afterwards...just to justify why she's on the list. If you don't want to see her in a bikini after looking at those pictures I have nothing to say to you.

8. Erin Bates

35 of 42

    This Erin gives Erin Andrews a run for her money. Bates is a motocross reporter who has covered the X Games for ESPN.

    While she's taken a couple of pictures in a bikini top, she has yet to do a full spread. This is quite surprising, considering she lists herself as a reporter/model on her website.

    What model hasn't done a bikini shoot?

7. Adriana Monsalve

36 of 42

    Adriana Monsalve is a reporter for ESPN Deportes and dazzles us with her coverage of the Spanish-speaking teams during the Little League World Series.

    Sure, she has one swimsuit photo out there (if it's really her), but imagine what she could do in a full bikini photo shoot.

    Okay, you can stop imagining now. I said stop!

6. Charissa Thompson

37 of 42

    Charissa Thompson is a sideline reporter who we'd like to see some more of.

    She's worked all over the place: FSN, Versus, Yahoo and even did some sideline reporting on the legendary Shaq Vs.

    Seems like she's having some trouble holding down a job...maybe a bikini shoot will be just the thing to get her a more permanent gig.

5. Jamie Little

38 of 42

    Jaime Little is a hot pit reporter for NASCAR on ESPN. I have to admit I don't watch much NASCAR, but I'm definitely going to start now.

    Jamie was on the cover of FHM in a bikini top, but as far as I can tell she's never done a full bikini shoot. Something tells me it's only a matter of time, but we certainly can't wait.

4. Kimberly Lansing

39 of 42

    Kimberly Lansing is a smokin' hot poker player that is good at breaking the other players' concentration.

    With all the time she spends in Las Vegas you'd think she'd have some bikini pictures. This is one that really, really needs to happen.

3. Minka Kelly

40 of 42

    It's hard to believe, but the soon-to-be Mrs. Derek Jeter has yet to do a bikini shoot. She's definitely been in her underwear before, but we're all curious to see what she'd look like in a swimsuit.

    If she's going to be married to the most popular athlete in New York, she needs to give the public what they want.

2. Heidi Watney

41 of 42

    Watney does sideline reporting at Red Sox games for NESN. She's definitely hot but has yet to do a bikini shoot.

    She competed in the Miss California pageant in 2002, so you know she's not afraid to parade in front of other people in a bikini.

1. Erin Andrews

42 of 42

    I think you could tell by the title of the slideshow that she would be at the top of the list.

    Since her first game as a sideline reporter for ESPN, she has captivated sports fans across the country. As soon as we saw her we typed "Erin Andrews bikini" into Google and came up with nothing.

    Now that the unpleasantness of that creepy peephole video is behind her, it's time to let loose and show everybody that she's proud of her body in a classy, tasteful bikini shoot.
