(Check out the communication skills on these ladies.)
Now that they are becoming more and more big time with each new sunrise, Bellator has decided that the next step is to improve their stable of ring girls. And how do you do that? The same way creepy casting directors meet their dates for Saturday night – unnecessary auditions!
In a move that is just begging for their email inboxes to be filled with alarming nude photos (take it from someone who worked for an MMA org conducting a ring girl search, it happens more than you’d think), Bellator is asking interested applicants to send photos and resumes to their Chicago offices. To be considered you should have “excellent communications skills, a vivacious and outgoing personality as well as an outstanding camera presence.” Translation: you should speak English, be really hot, and not be a completely unlikable jerk, at least when people are watching.
Does that sound like you? Probably not, no. Our completely informal demographic research tells us that most likely you are a) a dude, b) not all that attractive, or even in possession of socially acceptable hygiene habits, and c) at least sort of a jerk. But, shockingly enough, we know there are some women who read Cage Potato, and maybe even some who’d like to try their hand at ring girlin’. To those women, let us be the first to say, go for it. We’re even willing to help.
Maybe you don’t look like the typical ring girl. Maybe you have real breasts and real hair and all you know about makeup application you learned from your friend in junior high who, your mother rightfully pointed out, was a bad influence on you. That’s fine. If you ask us, the MMA world needs some ring girls like you. Even if it’s not a long-term career goal (and God help you if it is), why not take a shot and see what happens? At the very least maybe you get a good story out of it. Or a local anesthetic and several stitches after you fall several feet in front of thousands of spectators.
If you’re planning on applying for the job and want a little help getting Bjorn Rebney to notice your glossy 8×10’s in the growing stack of airbrushed uniformity, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about it. We’d love nothing more than to help a member of the Potato Nation get her ring girl on. Your success, loyal reader, is our success. The same goes for your paycheck.
