The beautiful women of the NFL shine their bodies throughout many stadiums on Sundays. These cheerleaders have become extremely popular in the NFL to go see, especially those in Dallas. Fans expect the job of working for a NFL team to be an awesome experience, but many cheerleaders may say otherwise. Some secrets may be simple complaining, where others may involve the law. Many of these cheerleaders stay quiet to secure their job, but when their career in the NFL is finished, all hell breaks loose.
Many of the confessions that are made may not even be publicized because the media wants to protect these NFL teams, and not give them a bad reputation. But unfortunately, life isn’t filled with flowers and happiness all the time. There are negativities surrounding many things in the world, and one of those being NFL teams. The life of a NFL cheerleader may be punishing, vigorous, and uncomfortable.
Here are some dark confessions from cheerleaders in the NFL:
15. Cheerleaders Get Paid Around $100 Per Game
When thinking about the average NFL cheerleader, you may expect them to cash out being big time performers on the big stage, week in and week out. That actually is not the case at all. According to Manouchcar Pierre-Val, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader, cheerleaders were only paid $100 per game. Pierre-Val also claimed that they were not paid for practices and other team events, adding up to less than $2 per hour.
Many fans would expect cheerleaders to make a pretty penny, performing at such a high level. But according to this former Bucs cheerleader, they may make more money working at McDonald’s rather than being a NFL cheerleader. Cheerleaders practice around three days a week, and have to attend team events and charity events. It’s nice to help out the community, but for $100 each game, it may not seem worth it to many cheerleaders.
