My problem with Rachel W is how unapologetically homophobic she is (she was quite disrespectful to Jinelle). 

Well now, I loathe her.  As a mom of a gay son, I'd love to know who the hell she thinks she is.  I hadn't heard of any of this crap about her.  Disgusting.  Her blank stare must be what hides her hate.  Her timid BS from her rookie year seems soooo fake now that I know what she is on the inside.

I thought this generation was going to bring hope...

I think Tess will retire since it’s her 5th year and she’s been performing for a while now. Maddie, I unfortunately think she’ll do a 6th season. Lexie I’m on the fence, but she was on Mavs too so she may want to retire. Rachel I think will stay for a 5th season and Savvy will too if she got 2GL this season, otherwise she’ll retire. Not that I think she should be a GL but anyway.

from the 3rd years, I sure hope they’ll stay because they are all amazing, but at the same time I hope they retire as an F you to Kelli. Even if many retire, she will have many options for GL & 2GL.

From the current 2nd years, I don’t see many staying for a while. I think Amanda would do tops 3 years and move on to something better. Chandi is the only one I can see in a leadership position, apart from VK who will be a leader no matter what. 

Not that it matters to me now, but Tess really should have retired two seasons ago.  I think there's a good chance she will after this season. Maddie...I see her sticking around for a 6th year.  She has made the nanny job work well with her DCC responsibilities.

I think Rachel A, Savannah, and Gina will stick around for 5 years.  I see Lexie retiring after this sh*t show season is over.

I think most of the 3rd years will stick around for a 4th year but I would love to see them all just go F you to the DCC organization and walk out...during squad photo shoot would be a GREAT time to do so!! 😉  ( I know I've said that a few other times lol)

2nd years:  I don't see any staying 4-5 years in this bunch except for Victoria.  (She will stay as long as she can...someone has to break Vonceil's record for longest tenure). I think we may possibly get 3 years from Chandi, Kelcey, and Amanda.  Kat...I see her leaving after this season.  Kristin and Lisa...I don't have a feel for how long they may stay. 

Rookies:  there are several I would like to see be 4-5 year vets: Jada, Elli, Armani, Dani, Darian, Jessica, Claire W.  They all "seem" to be very sweet young ladies who will be good ambassadors and are great dancers.  In reality....most will probably stay 2-3 years.  🙂  I don't know anything about McKenzie to decide on her.  The others I have no feelings one way or the other.  They can be one and done, or they can stay a decade. 

Just my thoughts 🙂

Well, I guess we now know how to communicate with her/get under her skin. LOL. 

VK's too immature to know it, but jealousy is a terrible look.

I just wonder how attractive being a DCC will be to VK(and her mother) if the show gets canceled, or put on indefinite hold, due to COVID.

We can stop with the “Maddie is sooo young” now. She was 18/19 that first year she cried constantly and was cut. That was 5 years ago. Nannying for the Joneses has served her well but she needs to go, especially at point. Doubt if she will unless it’s to get married. She’s a Utah Mormon so already long in the tooth and has nothing else going on besides DCC though. 
 

I don’t see any of these girls staying longer except VK who will have to be forced out with a job at DCC when she gets too fat.

Hold please, Maddie nannies for the Jones family? I knew she was a nanny but the Jones family really? Now it all makes sense...

And SAME thought about VK, she's going to be having Lisa the seamstress redoing her seems as she busts out of her shorts then she'll move to a onesie to cover her ever expanding milkshake gut...

This isn't going to be a popular opinion but, I kind of feel bad for her. Could you imagine if no one in your life thought you should amount to more than shaking your half bare a$$ in front of football fans?  It's rather sad to me.

I honestly don’t think VK will have as long a career with the DCC as some others are predicting. She’s excited about things now, of course, and she’s living her dream...she’s got her mean girls squad, her momma is happy, she’s taking classes and living life. 
 

But she doesn’t have a naturally thin figure, and she knew going in that’s a big old fight. We saw that in her first training camp talking heads. And while I do think she’ll be given A LOT of grace on that front (like many other treasured vets before her that might or might not have earned that grace, but I digress...) I think she’ll find other pursuits and things to enjoy as she hits her early 20’s, legal drinking age, and life.  
 

VK seems more sheltered to me than Cassie did, and Cassie also has a pretty big independent streak and while bossy and occasionally mean-spirited, showed some leadership qualities I haven’t seen in VK yet. Tho Cassie started out as wide eyed tumbler into the bosspants “lay down the law” miss in her later years so who knows.

I see VK hitting the same kind of wall Caila did.

I would love to see VK go work on Broadway especially because we all know she turned that down to be a DCC, insert sarcasm. However, I see her path as DCC until she is forcibly removed from the Star going straight to the alter & begging Bravo for a role on RHOD...

Big big big part of Maddie and Kashara getting promoted to triangle was to prove the good girls who tow the line get rewarded over the whole party girl Holly/Jenna/Erica/Keyra etc mess.

Lexie is there now for major asskissing although I think she’s far better than Amy or Maddie.

Poor Kelsey was repeatedly humiliated by Kelli and Judy and still managed to rise above all of it. I think after about the third time they brought up the 50 yards comment I would have walked. Then there was the bacon incident, and constantly getting the “how do we know you’re not an ambassador risk?” question. She and Kyndall and Meagan Flaherty and Kalli Fullerton were treated like garbage, sometimes by the organization and sometimes by the TV editing crew.

I don't get the ambassador risk thing with Kelsey considering she is one of the sexiest cheerleaders they've ever had.  Her answers were pretty bad, but how often do they really get asked about football, the Cowboys roster and coaching staff, politics, or some of the other topics they are asked at interviews? Maybe more than I think, but I'm also confident that soldiers at a USO show or rich old guys at a donors' banquet are going to have other thoughts after one look at her.

Don't remind me of Kat, i still stand by my statement she is the least attractive DCC ever. (A close second goes to Lisa)

I think Kat is very attractive.  I try not to be too critical of VK and Cassie because they get plenty of it from others, but I think they may my top 2.  

Edit: I just realized people were talking about blonde Kat and not the current Kat.  I still think the old Kat was cute.

Rachel is so overtanned, I'm surprised anyone could tell she was even wearing blackface.  She's pretty, but it looks almost unnatural.  It's hard to describe.  She looks like a Barbie doll or Instagram filtered, but it's her actual look.

I think such views are relatively common among the pageant community -- especially the girls who are willing to go through all the years of pageants that's typically necessary to make it to the Miss America level.

So this harkens back to something I think Smplsimon posted about how Lexie and her mom had positioned themselves well in the eyes of TPTB. What in the world? Lexie is a grown ass woman, why oh why would her mother be lurking around her job? What am I missing? Is this just part of the weird DCC culture or does her mom have some kind of role in the Cowboy universe or link to it professionally?

Kelsey was stunning and yeah, USO tours, photo shoots, just general fan meet and greets she would be a rock star. 

I, too, wonder about how often the booty short wearing, boob shaking dancers are asked about their thoughts on global politics or quizzed on the history of football. I'm assuming most of the "ambassador" stuff is smile, look pretty in next to nothing and don't say anything too embarrassing while you act like untouched sex objects. 

Kelli would be lucky to have a team full of Kelsey's.

That's why I think she should've gone away to college somewhere, joined a dance team and then tried out for DCC. She's so smothered by her mother and like you say, has led a sheltered life. Nobody's ever told her the truth in the dance world because she's always been babied (don't even know if that's a world). 

She reminds me of my cousin in that way. His mother was so overbearing, didn't let him do anything unless she was there. Then he went to university and he's his own man now and has so much more confidence in himself.

Well-Judy and Kelli have no one to blame but themselves. This is what you get when you reward mediocrity. Everyone in this new 3rd year class may not be everyone’s favorite (I have had vanilla ice cream more exciting that Caroline and Daphne, and Ashlee just is not my style), but their talent and ambassadorship can’t be denied. But Judy and Kelli would rather continue us believe that Tess, Maddie, and Savannah (hell may as well name em all) are the elite of the elite on this team. It is going to take a small miracle by the hands of Jesus himself to keep DCC relevant. And when they have the team to do it, they highlight Maddie, Victoria, and Daphne. Or whatever other bland trio they choose that day. To stay relevant these women need voices and to be thought leaders. And yet you go through their social media, both personal and dcc, and all you see is ads for hair ties and soul cycle. Ok I will shut the hell up now.

Someone finally said what I feel about Caroline.  She's fine.  But she has kind of a stepford look in her eyes.  She's pretty, she dances well, but she just isn't exciting.  To quote a certain person "she just doesn't have the "it" factor"!

And Daphne.  What the what?  An ok dancer, sure, but I am sorry, she is no more attractive than the average girl at the mall. the hair is dreadful.  And clearly she struggles with eating issues.  So maybe that's not a good plan?

YAY to Brennan for living her best life with her boyfriend (per Insta, they traveled to Mexico). She looks amazing, so I'm calling BS now if TPTB say "weight" (I'm calling BS to any excuse for cutting Brennan, TBH). Also, on my "vanilla" list (I'm ducking) is Taylor. She seems sweet and it's nice she's a teacher and all, but yawn! No way is she as dynamic a performer as Hannah. She kind of plays it safe to me.

I legit keep forgetting who Taylor even is/what she looks like. I generally forget she, Amber, Caroline, and Madeline even exist. 

Madeline is an especially weird choice to me because she looks like a little girl and also looks like a perfect blend of Maddie and Alexis...so much blending

I’m there too. Tess has a sick body but that’s it. Maddie y’all know I never did understand the hype. Never would ever let her come back after her first cut. Savannah grew on me and I think her dancing is fine now but besides the hair don’t think she’s this great beauty. Very well spoken and id keep her though. 
 

Soccer mom Caroline is boring and basic as hell but fits that cookie cutter. She can dance I admit. But so damn boring like watching a vanilla pudding cup. 
Ashlee I soooooo want to adore but I just don’t see the powerhouse. Nothing wrong with her I just think we haven’t had an outstanding black girl in a while so she gets to be Miss Thang. I prefer Brianna if we have to pick a Miss Black Girl Magic but Jada may pull through. 
Daphne - there’s another I do not get. She always looks sickly and tired to me. Like she needs a good sleep and maybe a bolus of fluids. Her ribs also sit wide and stick out so I do not think she looks good in the uniform. Seems like a nice girl just like she’s been through hell with DCC.

I swear Taylor is on the squad because of her friendship with Sam Finglass. She has nothing special in my opinion. She got the benefit of a one day audition and then they cut Hannah who could dance for speaking the truth. Makes no sense

I always find it interesting when people say they forget about Amber, because I've always been drawn to her, and she was on show group her rookie year. But it seems to be kinda common on this board. Caroline also seems to be very polarizing, considering that some love her and want her to be point one day (I'm in this group), and others forget about her. Different strokes for different folks I guess. My current faves: Gina, Caroline, Amber, Rachel W, and Kelcey. And I know that several of these girls are controversial over their personalities, social media, political views, etc, but I don't keep up with any of that and am basing my opinions solely on looks and dance. Also BRIDGET and LAUREN! They both retired earlier than I wanted them to... 😞

Agree with your faves except Lauren.  She quit her job to practice more, but others who quit for the same reason were given the evil eye by K&J.  Can't pose for calendar but can still post pics on social media wearing a bikini, on and on......

I agree with all of these! I just didn't include them because I didn't start watching the show until the 2017 season (season 12). While I've watched all of the seasons now, via Pluto and CMT, I have a hard time finding faves from any season earlier than 12 just because I didn't go on a journey with them - just watched their season in about eight hours. But they were all fantastic dancers and seemed really nice on the show!

It's funny you say that, cause yes, sometimes the 8 hours or so goes by so fast, and you feel you didn't get to know the girls.  But I can watch all of season 9 in a marathon and be fed up with Breelan half way thru🤣

Speaking of Lauren... I've been waiting for the right time to share these. They're from the MDC Fashion Show (9/15/15). Out of all the women featured in the album, she's certainly the most "covered up".

Wow DCC not having a good PR week 😂 Meagan Pravden has just released an interview on her body image trauma after Kelli made the infamous thut comment. Love her! https://www.dallasobserver.com/arts/meagan-pravden-reflects-on-body-shaming-from-cmts-dallas-cowboys-cheerleaders-making-the-team-11921926

The thutt episode is on Pluto right now. It’s the same one where Hannah is cut for weight and Veronica is called “huge.” I cannot believe these women stay through this kind of obnoxious treatment. In no world is Meagan stocky or Veronica huge. For all that they sacrifice for this team they deserve to be treated with at least a smidge of respect. I think Hannah and Brennan ultimately will realize they came out ahead.

Someone finally said what I feel about Caroline.  She's fine.  But she has kind of a stepford look in her eyes.  She's pretty, she dances well, but she just isn't exciting.  To quote a certain person "she just doesn't have the "it" factor"!

And Daphne.  What the what?  An ok dancer, sure, but I am sorry, she is no more attractive than the average girl at the mall. the hair is dreadful.  And clearly she struggles with eating issues.  So maybe that's not a good plan?  

I really like Daphne and it never fails to shock me when people say she's ok or mediocre - she pops in every video I've seen of her. Regarding her weight, I actually don't thinks she's that skinny - she has a really bony torso and a flat chest (sorry Daphne), but when you see her next to the other girls around her height you can see that she's actually around the same size. Not saying she definitely doesn't have eating issues, but I don't think you can say she clearly struggles. I went back through her IG and it looks like she's always had a bony torso, but the fact that she still has thighs makes me think it's just a weight distribution thing. But again, none of us know for sure.

All I know is, she's a great teammate (from what we've seen) and she can dance. Starting at 1:21, you can see her killing it as rookie point. Also, you can see that Jalyn is even smaller than her.

I agree she definitely can hold her own with the dancing, particularly in the video you shared. I wouldn't say she is one of the superstar dancers but is definitely more than just ok. I can also really relate to having a bony and smaller chest and prominent ribs and it does not always mean you're too thin. I do think that there have been times mainly the calendar shoot where she looked like she had gone a bit far. Weight distribution can definitely contribute though, personally my lower half gains first and my top half loses first.

I could not stop watching Hannah in that video - truly a mistake on Kelly and Judy's part. She is amazing!!

I have the same body type.  I'm tall and love weighing 118.  But people genuinely think I am "not well" when I am under 120.  Everything is bony from my waist up.   Put on a few pounds "oh you look wonderful."  But they aren't looking at my saddlebags when they say that.

Perhaps TK doesn’t think anything about VK getting an education or skill if she herself didn’t & just went right into marriage.  Perhaps no vision or dream for her & certainly haven’t seen VK speaking of any life goals other than DCC, not even marriage. Does she have a boyfriend?

For what it's worth, I'm glad Lauren seemed to have the option not to pose for the calendar.  The DCC uniform shows a lot of skin, certainly, as do most dance costumes.  But that's a specific thing for a dance job, and posing sexily yanking your bottoms down for print media (and revenue) feels different to me.  I am surprised that Maddie was willing to do it, though, or maybe she just wasn't willing to speak up like Lauren was.

Part of me is like meh, it's part of the job, and maybe that's how Maddie justified it to herself too.  But the rest of me is like actually...they sign up for a dance job and public appearances.  Not to promote swimwear in a calendar that might hang on someone's wall for three years because his favorite cheerleader has her bum sticking out.  And 35 other ladies were probably perfectly willing to do it, so there ya go.

Haha definitely feel that. I am short to average at best so I am fairly lucky that it's not commented on too much. Never fun to get the "why does that fit you differently?" lol because I've got no chest, straight down it goes etc
