Hot dog eating contest broadcast will include former NFL Cheerleader

The world famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, live from Coney Island, N.Y., airs tomorrow Wednesday, July 4, at 12 p.m. on ESPN3, and on delay at 3 p.m. on ESPN (following ESPN’s coverage of the Wimbledon Quarterfinals). Originally scheduled for a 3 p.m. start, the contest was moved up to noon in order to accommodate the large crowd expected to attend.

The broadcast team will be Paul Page and Major League Eating’s Richard Shea, with television hostess Renee Herlocker. The one-hour show will also include coverage of the Women’s Championship. Herlocker, pictures above is a tramp-stamped former member of the Denver Broncos cheerleading squad. (ESPN Erin Andrews replacement Jenn Brown also has a backside bull’s-eye in case you’re scoring at home)  Here’s more pics of Herlocker, the third Broncos cheerleader to become a sideline/reporter.


By the way, NFL Network’s Michelle Beisner and Avalanche/Rockies in-game hostess Lauren Gardner are the other two. Click their names where highlighted for bios/pics on each of them.

I guess being a Broncos cheerleader is the new escalator to media stardom. By the way, here’s Herlocker’s Facebook fan page. She also has a Twitter account. I think she may have a MySpace page, but I’m not going to bother to link it because no one has cared about MySpace since 2008.
