The Evolution Of Pro Bowl Cheerleaders From 1993 To The Present

The Pro Bowl Gets Progressively More Boring Over The Years, But The Cheerleaders Just Keep Getting Better.

The NFL Pro Bowl is this weekend, and like many of you, I could absolutely care less. But if there's anything that'll get me to watch any part of it, it's the Pro Bowl Cheerleaders. The best of the best. The picture you see above is the group photo of this year's Pro Bowl Cheerleaders. Naturally, everyone looks hot, is in skimpy clothes, etc. But it wasn't always this way, my friend.

The concept of Pro Bowl Cheerleaders wasn't first introduced until the 1993 Pro Bowl, even though the Pro Bowl started in 1980. Naturally, being a Pro Bowl Cheerleader back then wasn't anywhere near as glamorous as it is now, and as you can guess, the hair was a lot weirder back then too.

Luckily we managed to track down every single Pro Bowl Cheerleader group photo from 1993 to 2009 so you can see the shift in, well, pretty much everything over the years.

Now let's take a look back, starting with the inaugural year of 1993. The picture was apparently shot at the entrance of a hotel. Gotta love the hair, and that one cheerleader rocking the red headband.

1993



And, as you'll see, pretty much nothing changed over the next four years. We're still at the same damn hotel, except they added a few more benches for the ladies. At least no one was wearing a headband anymore.

1994



1995 - This may have been the low point for the Pro Bowl cheerleaders....



1996 - I won't say who, but one of these cheerleaders kind of looks like a guy.



1997
- Someone in here bears a striking resemblance to Captain America.



Eventually, the ladies moved on from the hotel entrance, like to the pool.

1998



1999



Check out Page 2 for the 2000's.

Once the ladies finally hit the millennium, they got to bust out a bit more and wear reasonably attractive uniforms.

2002



2003




2004




2005



2006 - The NFL finally realized that since no one was paying attention to the game, and instead only to the cheerleaders, they might as well let us know who the cheerleaders actually are.



2007



2008


And lastly, check out Page 3 for the full 2009 squad.

And if you made it this far, here are the 2009 girls, starting with Amy of the Philadelphia Eagles:
 




Marlina (Chargers), Alyssa (Patriots), Ashley (Texans), Treivy (Dolphins), Carey (Falcons)


Tiffany (Redskins), Marcie (Cardinals), Alex (Broncos), Ryann (Jets), Nicole (Cowboys)


Rachel (Bucs), Jessica (Bills), Shonica (Colts), Catherine (Chiefs), Heather (Bengals)


Valerie (Rams), Lindsay (Titans), Gena (Seahawks), Serrita (Raiders), Chrissy (Saints)


Jackie (49ers), Tasha (Ravens), Tara (Panthers), Liana (Jaguars), Sarah (Vikings)

Needless to say, it's been quite a change over the years, but without question for the better.

If there's one certainty, it's that Pro Bowl 1993 was a bad hair day...well, 1997 too.

I will assume you had a typo... the Pro Bowl has been around longer than 1980..that was the first year in Hawaii. In any event, the Year of the Cheerleader continues for one more week...good job.!

I think it was somewhere around 1998 or 1999 when the bikini calendars started coming out. When those started selling great, team management decided the cheerleaders should be wearing less on the sidelines. Sex sells.

That is great, the change for the better. I like it, never really noticed the hair change though. Pretty good, pretty good. They do look younger without that fluzzy hairdo.
