There are some perks to being a professional athlete. It's hard to call fame a perk because being in the spotlight is about as positive an experience as it is negative, but the money can be great and the lifestyle is something most people only dream of. Doing something you love with the opportunity to make good money is a pretty sweet deal. Don't get us wrong, we understand the amount of hard work, but when you love something, working toward a goal isn't really work.
With that said, another perk that comes with being an athlete is that your chance of wrangling a world class wife or girlfriend rises almost exponentially. Athletes are almost universally confident and along with that most are fit. Add some earning potential to that and you have an equation that should bring a hot woman your way.
One of the biggest problems for a lot of dudes is that most women are just as shallow as we are. If you're less than decent looking, your chances drop in a bad way. But this is something plenty of athletes who are aesthetically challenged can get past. With these guys in mind, let's waste no time getting to fifteen athletes who look like they fell out of the ugly tree and hit ever branch on the way down, but were still able to find sexy women.
15 Roy Nelson - Jessy
14 Bartolo Colon - Rosanna
13 Dennis Rodman - Carmen Electra
Here's the thing about Dennis Rodman, I don't feel bad about putting him on this list. With these other athletes, I take no pleasure in calling them ugly, it's just a statement of fact. But in Rodman's case, he's naturally fairly unattractive, but also spent a lot of time making himself look as messed up as he does. It took effort.
12 Shaun White - Sarah Barthel
Shaun White can be seen as somewhat of an opposite to Dennis Rodman. While Rodman is naturally a mess to look at, and took steps to make himself look like a member of a different species, Shaun White had a unique look, with the long red hair and the smile protruding out of his face, but actually looks normal when he cut his hair. Let's be honest here, the dude looked like Carrot Top for a while. But no matter what he looks like, he's one of the best X-Games athletes of all time and that's what's important.
11 Anthony Davis - Dylan Gonzalez
New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis is a talented player, having been named an All-Star each year since 2014, but he's far from a super model. Imagine some mad scientist bred Bert (from Bert and Ernie) with a piranha, you'd get Anthony Davis.
10 Wayne Rooney - Coleen
9 Ronaldinho - Janaina Mendes (Broken up), Jelena Markovic
Many years ago, before he started doing terrible kid movies, genius comedian Eddie Murphy came up with a brilliant stand up routine about how easy it is for musicians to get women. His example was Luther Vandross, who isn't exactly a looker.
8 Chris Bosh - Adrienne
7 Chris Kaman - Emilie
6 Nikolai Valuev - Galina
When your job entails being punched in the face, it can be hard to maintain your looks and that's been the case for Nikolai Valuev, though he might not have had good looks to begin with. Then again, looks don't matter so much when one's face is being rearranged by a seven foot tall monster, so I don't mention this opinion very often.
5 Tyler Kennedy - Brandi
4 Jimmy Clausen - Jessica Gysin
Drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the second round of the 2010 draft out of Notre Dame, Jimmy Clausen has, six seasons later, cemented himself as a terrible starter with a tendency to fumble snaps and a foul attitude that alienated teammates early in his career. Steve Smith was the most notorious of said teammates. He also bears a slight but significant resemblance to Evan Jones, the actor who played Cheddar Bob in 8 Mile (he also had notable roles in The Book of Eli and Jarhead).
3 Shelden Williams - Candace Parker
2 Alexander Ovechkin - Maria Kirilenko (Broke Up) and Nastya Shubskaya
1 Antonio Silva - Rosario Pimentel
There is a reason this unfortunate fellow's nickname is Bigfoot. Regardless of what he looks like though, he's held multiple Heavyweight belts for a few promotions (EliteXC, Cage Rage and Cage Warriors) and fought in one of the best fights in the history of the UFC Heavyweight division a couple of years ago when he and Mark Hunt fought five full rounds to a majority draw.
Along with being a more-than-respectable competitor, Bigfoot Silva has a pretty hot wife, Rosario Pimentel.
