Kim Kardashian is a reality television star, socialite, and one of the most famous women on the face of the planet. The Armenian-American model has built a business empire off of little more than some tabloid publicity and a reality television show. Love her or hate her, the pop culture icon doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon.
Kardashian's is an attractive woman who is known for having an ample backside and being able to attract some high-profile celebrities. The socialite has dated NFL star Reggie Bush, pop singer Ray J, and was even previously married to NBA player Kris Humphries. She is currently married to singer/songwriter Kanye West. It's pretty clear the Kim Kardashian knows how to get a guy's attention.
The reality star has looks, money, and is considered by some to be one of the best-looking women alive today. However, if you want to find some women who can more than hold their own in the looks department with Kardashian, look no further than the world of professional sports.
Staying in peak physical condition is required to achieve excellence in any sport. It's helped to give these ladies physiques that even the mighty Kim Kardashian would envy. If you don't believe me, just take a look at these 15 photos of female athletes who are WAY hotter than Kim Kardashian.
15 Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova has had plenty of success since entering the world of pro tennis. She has won every major Grand Slam Championship, thus making her a career Grand Slam winner.

The 6-f00t-2 Russian has earned over $36 million in prize money which is 2nd all-time behind only Serena Williams.

Sharapova's stunning good looks even caught the attention of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, whom she briefly dated back in 2005. She has also posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Sharapova is at worst Kardashian's equal in the looks department, and if you would like to see more of Maria, take a look at 8 Pictures Maria Sharapova Wants You To See And 7 She Doesn’t.
14 Aly Raisman
WOWWW what an honor to be featured in @si_swimsuit 2017. THANK YOU to @mj_day & the SI team for including me in this issue. I'm very proud of my body and how hard I have worked to look like this. I of course like everyone else have my days where I feel insecure and not at my best. BUT I think it is that much more important we love our bodies and support each other. It is 2017 and there is NO perfect or ideal body type. SI SWIM celebrates women for being unique and beautiful in our own way which is why I am so happy to be a part of it. THANK YOU @jamesmacari 💛
Aly Raisman captured the hearts of audiences around the globe during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janerio. The 22-year-old gymnast is an extremely accomplished competitor. During her two Olympic appearances Raisman captured 6 medals, 3 of which were of the gold variety. She was named the United States team captain for the games in both 2012 and 2016. The charming native of Needham, Massachusetts was even selected to compete on the reality television show, Dancing with the Stars.
During her time on the reality series, Aly Raisman was paired with dancing pro Mark Ballas. The 5-foot-2 gymnast and her partner ended up finishing 4th-overall. The years spent training to become an Olympic level gymnast has given Aly Raisman curves that would make even Kim Kardashian envious.
13 Ronda Rousey
After back-to-back losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes, fans have begun to jump off the Ronda Rousey bandwagon. However, it's easy to forget that prior to her loss to Holm, Rousey had won 12 straight fights and is still the most accomplished female fighter in women's mixed martial arts. Her ability to finish opponents quickly, combined with her marketable appearance has helped make women's MMA what it is today.
While some may doubt Rousey's ability to compete in the Octagon these days, there is no denying the former UFC champion's sex appeal. Her 5-foot-6, 135-pound frame is just one of the many reasons Rousey has become one of the biggest names in the sport. Kim K doesn't have anything on Rousey's bikini bod.
12 Sydney Leroux
27-year-old Sydney Leroux is one of the hottest females in all of pro soccer. She is probably best known as a member of the both the United States World Cup and Olympic teams. The 5-foot-7 native of Surrey, British Columbia is also an Olympic gold medalist. Leroux is a dual citizen of both the United States and Canada. She is currently a member of women's soccer team FC Kansas City.
The forward's good looks have likely helped her land some endorsement deals with big name companies like Nike and Nestle Nesquick. She was even asked to pose for ESPN's The Body Issue, back in 2013. The soccer starlet has also appeared on the hit television show, Hell's Kitchen. Sydney Leroux is one athlete that Kim Kardashian probably doesn't want to compete with in a bikini contest.
11 Skylar Diggins-Smith
Skylar Diggins-Smith is a point guard for the Women's National Basketball Association's Dallas Wings. The two-time WNBA All-Star is 26 years of age and hails from South Bend, Indiana. The 5-foot-9 basketball starlet was drafted 3rd overall by the Wings (at that time know as the Tulsa Shock) back in the 2013 WNBA draft. In 2014, Diggins-Smith was the league's second highest scorer and averaged an impressive 20.1 points per game.
Diggins-Smith is arguably the most attractive female in the WNBA. She has posed in a swimsuit shoot for Sports Illustrated and has also been featured in Vogue magazine. The Notre Dame alumni has endorsement deals with Nike and BodyArmor Super Drink. It's rarely a "slam dunk" when arguing that woman is more attractive than Kim Kardashian. However, Skylar Diggins-Smith makes a strong case.
10 Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss, whose real name is Alexis Kaufman, is a professional wrestler for World Wrestling Entertainment. She is a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion and the current Raw Women's Champion. The 25-year-old from Columbus, Ohio has accomplished these feats in less than a year as a member of WWE's main roster. Bliss competed in several sports as a young girl including kickboxing, cheerleading, and gymnastics.
Bliss, who is generously billed as being 5-foot-1, is one of the sexiest females in all of pro wrestling. The WWE's "wicked witch" has seemingly cast a spell on wrestling fans around the world. Kardashian would have a hard time competing with this tiny titan's sex appeal.
9 Eugenie Bouchard
Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard is without question one of best reasons to watch professional tennis. The 5-f00t-10 native of Montreal, Quebec, Canada has one of the most passionate fan bases in the sport. She has won over $5 million in prize money over the course of her young career. Bouchard has even been ranked as high as number 5 in the world back in 2014. She is also the only Canadian female representative to reach the finals of a Grand Slam tournament.
The 23-year-old tennis star has a twin sister Beatrice, who is also quite beautiful. And if you would like to learn more about, and see more of Bouchard, check out 8 Pictures Eugenie Bouchard Wants You To See And 7 She Doesn’t . When it comes to having a toned lower body, even Kim Kardashian can't compete with Genie Bouchard.
8 Kerri Walsh
Kerri Walsh Jennings is one of the most accomplished female volleyball players of all time. Alongside her partner Misty May-Treanor, the blonde bombshell from Santa Clara, California has won three Olympic gold medals. Furthermore, she has won over $2.5 million in prize money, which is the most all-time for a female in the sport. Walsh Jennings is also the all-time leader in career wins.
The Olympians height combined with her warm personality has earned her the nickname "Six Feet of Sunshine." However, the nickname is actually selling the Californian short, since she is actually 6-foot-3. Kerri Walsh Jennings posed for ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue" back in 2013. Trying to look better than Kim K is a tall task, but the woman known as "Six Feet of Sunshine" may be up to the challenge.
7 Lindsey Vonn
Lindsey Caroline Vonn has become the face of women's alpine ski racing. The 32-year-old is 5-foot-10 and is originally from Saint Paul, Minnesota. She has appeared in the Winter Olympics on 3 separate occasions and won both a gold and bronze medal back in 2010.In 2010, she was also named the United States Olympic Committee sportswomen of the year
Vonn's sex appeal and marketability have helped draw attention to a once relatively obscure sport. She has even worked as a correspondent during 2014 Winter Games. The Olympian has also appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Moreover, she made Maxim's Hot 100 list in 2010. The stunning blonde skier even dated golf legend Tiger Woods from 2013 to 2015. It's clear that Kim Kardashian has nothing on this two-time Olympic medalist and swimsuit model.
6 Nikki Bella
Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace is a professional wrestler who goes by the ring name Nikki Bella. She is also the twin sister of fellow wrestler Brianna Monique Danielson who competes under the stage name Brie Bella. Nikki Bella has held the WWE Divas Championship on two separate occasions. In fact, she held the title for a record-setting 301 days.
Kim Kardashian isn't the only one with a reality television series on E!. Nikki and her sister have their own reality shown on the network, Total Bellas. Bella is one of the hottest women on television and certainly belong on the list of Top 15 Hottest Brunettes In Wrestling History . If Kim isn't careful, there could be a new queen of reality television on E!.
5 Alex Morgan
San Dimas, California native Alex Morgan is currently the face of U.S. women's soccer. In recent years Morgan has become a mainstay on both the United States World Cup and Olympic teams. She has an eye-popping 73 goals scored in international competition and is an Olympic gold medalist. According to Time Magazine, her endorsement deals made her the highest paid us soccer player in 2015. At just 27 years of age, she has already had an amazing career.
You can add the lovely Alex Morgan to the list of hot female athletes who were featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The 5-foot-7 star is easily among the most attractive women in her sport. The soccer star could easily be considered hotter than Kim Kardashian.
4 Alana Blanchard
Alana Blanchard is a professional surfer who was competed on the ASP World Tour. Winning the 2005 T&C Women's Pipeline Championship as a shortboard competitor is arguably the highlight of the 27-year-old's career. The young wave rider even won Surfer Magazines most popular surfer poll a few years back.
Alana Blanchard has 183,000 Twitter followers, which is a very large number considering pro surfing has a relatively small fanbase compared to other pro sports. Her killer beach bod has likely helped the native of Kaui, Hawaii gain notoriety. She has modeled for the surf apparel brand, Rip Curl. Blanchard was even nominated for Peta2's award for the hottest celebrity vegan. She is one of the few people in any sport who can make a legit claim to being hotter than Kim K.
3 Lolo Jones
Lori Susan Jones is better known to the sports world by here nickname,"Lolo." The 5-foot-9 product of Des Moines, Iowa competed in both track & field as well as bobsledding. In fact, Jones has participated in both the Winter and Summer Olympics. Moreover, she is the American record holder in the 60-meter hurdles. Sadly, she is probably best remembered for falling over an obstacle during the 100-meter hurdles at the 2008 Olympic Games.
While she wasn't able to take home and Olympic medal, her good looks helped make her a celebrity athlete. Jones appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and was also a participant on the reality television show Dancing with the Stars. The Olympian also appeared in ESPN's The Body Issue. Lolo Jones is another high-level athlete whose looks can more than hold up to Kim Kardashian.
2 Paige VanZant
Paige VanZant is a mixed martial artist who competes in the UFC's strawweight division. She has had her struggles in recent fights, but still, has impressive victories over the likes of Felice Herrig and Bec Rawlings. The 23-year-old native of Dundee, Oregon was a professional record of 7-3. The scrappy blonde also holds a blue belt in jiu-jitsu.
Paige VanZant proves the old saying "you can't judge a book by its cover." The 5-foot-4 blonde looks much more like a model than a cage fighter. Like other athletes on our list, VanZant has also competed on Dancing with the Stars and even came in 2nd place overall. She also appeared on the Food Network series Chopped. It's hard to imagine Kim K looking this good in fight gear.
1 Paige Spiranac
Wheat Ridge, Connecticut's Paige Spiranac is a professional golfer. If we are being honest, the 5-foot-6 San Diego State University alum is probably better known for her stunning good looks as opposed to her golf game. According to her website, "Paige Spiranac is a rising golf talent, media personality, and online influencer who's on a mission to show how much fun golf can be while making a positive impact on the world." Prior to entering the world of professional golf, Spiranac was an accomplished gymnast.
While the 24-year-old blonde isn't as well-known as some the other athletes on the list, she is still an extremely attractive woman. Moreover, Spiranac is still very young and may yet have a major impact as a pro golfer. Kim Kardashian may feel a bit sub-par in the looks department when being compared to Paige Spiranac.
