So looks like there will apparently definitely not be a Calendar Shoot this year! But yay they are doing a cameo calendar - I've always thought that would be a great idea! 😊 And yay Amanda and Daphne are featured!

Um, those Houston cheerleaders face tuning makes Gina look like a makeup free farm girl. It’s like the photographer was the one who took the “Hannah on crack” cameo. 😬

I think that rookie class is one of the tightest they've ever had, considering there were 16 of them. Plus that was the year of the comeback girl: Erin, Madeline and Brennan had all made TC before. Plus Briana, Amber and Hannah had all auditioned before. That's one of the few rookie classes I've ever fully agreed with. They didn't take any fillers that year! (Taylor J is the weakest dancer but seems like a great ambassador and is good at DCC style)

I'm a sucker for Taylor J, so I'm hurt by this LOL.

I think when it comes to the Texans Cheerleaders, I'm thinking it's intentional and they may be going for that Red Lipstick to somehow gel with their team colors. They may think it compliments the uniform well. I'm not a girl, so IDK how all that works. Just tossing that out as a possibility of their line of thinking.

I've noticed this with a lot of girls about their age on social media, I don't think it's a DCC-specific thing.  Someone posts a picture and all the comments are "OMG you are literally the best, I would die for you, *fire emoji* hawt mama!"  It's a little over the top for me, too, but it could be worse I guess.  

Hahahaha you're right, "you are literally the best" made me laugh! I think it seems so DCC to me bc those are the only ladies i follow on Insta that do that, Lord knows my friends are beyond that age... :-)

This pic where the cheerleader is framing the smaller cameos by t-posing and facing away from the calendar looks so awkward. It was a cool idea, but I think they should have at least had her look over her shoulder so that you can see her face. 

 

Any guesses who it is? Caroline? Jalyn? I actually hate it.

I hate how all the girls smile with their teeth showing. They are all very beautiful but thier smiles looks awkward.

Agreed! I have always disliked toothy smiles because they just look like the person is trying too hard. You see smiles like that in beauty pageants also. It always makes me think of that movie "Miss Congeniality" and a moment when Sandra Bullock's character steps offstage and says "excuse me, I have to go unscrew my smile."  I've always preferred softer, more natural smiles to big grins.

I'm fairly confident Malia Morales from season 4 was a former Houston Texans cheerleader. 

She was! I can’t recall if it was before or after DCC (IIRC, they moved to Houston for her husband’s job). But she was one of my absolute favorites: smart, gorgeous, ambitious, successful. They need to do a Where Are They Now segment on her!

This calendar is meh. I think they could have used old sideline and performance pics from vets and took photos of the rookies on an empty field.

And what about a swimsuit calendar? I am sure they could find a pool, waterpark or splashpad to shoot at.  

I agree that it's meh. I personally don't think their cameos are dynamic enough to rate being featured in a calendar (I mean there's no way you can make the old "arm over the head" pose any more compelling), but DCC wants to get fan money however they can. As for going on location, yeah they could have easily gone to some swanky hotel in Texas and rented out the pool area or sought out a marina or even gone to a beach on the coast at dawn or sunset to get those bikini shots.

For the lipstick complimenting the uniforms, I agree that’s what it seems like the intent was. I think all those girls are about a thousand times prettier than I am right now. I think some of them are posed at really awkward angles in these photos and they almost seem almost distorted in a way.

Didn't they film at the Gaylord last season? They have a pool and lakes. They could have driven down to South Padre for a beach shoot and just photoshopped the water haha.

I think they could have gone to Florida. The Covid restrictions are loose there. I mean they just had Miss Universe at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood and they did swimsuit photo shoots. They looked decent in my opinion.

No restrictions here I just think they are either moving away from it or it’s we can’t go to Mexico so we aren’t doing a swim calendar until we can

I think Kat is a shoo-in to make the team again this year, along with Ashlee, Rachel, Taylor, Dani, etc. I don’t think Kelli would put a girl on the cover of a calendar if she was ‘on the bubble’. Of course anything could happen (Holly, Erica come to mind) but those would be out of the ordinary circumstances. As it stands, I bet Kat makes the team. Which I love cuz I am TeamKat 150%. 
 

Edited to add - shame about Amanda. She was obviously a fave (with Kelli, and also with this board) but the tides turn quickly.

Is there anyone who isn't in either calendar? I think Amber and Alora-Rose look like they miss out, yet some get two pics and/or a cover! I definitely prefer the shots with the poms, they're more like stills following dancing and look much more natural!

It was the same clip, shown on different episodes and at different times, in order to convince you she deserved her cut.

Reality TV should never, ever be trusted. 

I saw different clips from different days, in different outfits and dances. More than one shot of her rushing or behind, with other ladies hitting the correct timing.  First field practice, show group auditions, practice room in small groups.  We can agree to disagree, but her usually fierce dancing looked weak and at times boring.

She was definitely on my come on over list!

Fairly certain one of the current DCC or only recently retired was a Texans cheerleader

It's one of the silliest things I've ever seen.  If stuff like this is necessary, pose them at the Stockyards or wherever.  The mere suggestion they're dancing alongside a cattle drive is so very beyond ridic, why go to the trouble of the editing work?

For sure looks like a combo, like they photoshopped the Stockyards in FW.  It's been a minute since I lived in Fort Worth, but I legit don't recognize half of those buildings and some of the other ones don't look like they belong where they should.

That said, there are some amazing locations that could work for a calendar shoot within an hour drive of DFW.  And there are plenty of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets to be had too.  And on top of that, it's not like Texas has many covid restrictions at all, and I've had multiple friends that have traveled to the Bahamas and Mexico both from DFW this year (they're nuts, but YOLO I guess.)  So this seems like pure optics but they're shooting themselves in the foot too IMO.

Totally agree- it would be cool to showcase some of the unique landscapes Texas has to offer! I think the SI swimsuit edition did some photoshoots in Wyoming in recent years that could be good inspiration. 
 

I found this video that makes it look like the bulls and cheerleaders were all together- they may have edited the skyline though (I’m not from Dallas)

I never really cared about the calendars since I never buy them but I totally agree.  I think they missed a really good opportunity to capitalize on the “Texasness” of Texas for a new calendar. It doesn’t need to technically be a “swimsuit” calendar, but I’m sure they can come up with “girl next door slutty sexy” outfits and locales for a Texas themed calendar shoot . 

Eh I’ve been to both the Bahamas and Mexico (and plan on going back to both in the next month), and everything was all good COVID precaution-wise. No issues at all. In fact, I felt safer in the Bahamas than I have in some parts of the US since some Covid restrictions are still in place there.  I wouldn’t take a team full of cheerleaders, photographers, makeup and hair, plus support staff for a photo shoot. That’s a logistical nightmare.  But a personal vacation over there with my husband was fantastic.

The makeup and especially the ruby red lipstick on everyone is terrible.  Whose aesthetic could that be? It’s garish. 
 The eyelashes on some of the women are so awful. It’s not flattering to have obviously synergetic eyelashes brushing your eyebrows and cheeks. 
A lot of them look like their makeup was done by someone with a performing arts background. Makeup to be seen rather than makeup to enhance.

fail. Blech. 

I know it sounds awful but that red lipstick and the huge (unflattering)toothy smile reminds me of The Joker... Ruby red lipstick is tricky; few can actually pull it off and wear it with grace, so that choice is just plain stupid. A good makeup artist looks at complexion, eye colours and facial features when determining the colours and will enhance those or tune them down a little for the occasion in mind.

Some of those girls could do with a visit to a good hair salon! I'm pretty sure that the DCC jury would have sent a lot of them for a huge make-over if they had been auditioning for the DCC!

I actually wouldn't mind if they moved away from doing swimsuit calendars. What if they did photos of the girls at various locations around Texas? They wouldn't even have to be limited to being at just well-known places. Maybe doing something like horseback riding, checking out a museum, a wine tasting at a local vineyard or an elegant night out at a performing arts center. Being in a bathing suit on a beach isn't the only way to look sexy. I also think they need to bring in new photographers. It seems like they've used the same older guys for the last few years and it might be time to bring in someone with fresh eyes, a new perspective and more innovative ideas.

I still only see one mistake. Being demoralized and worried about COVID protocol probably did make her less precise, but nowhere near enough to justify her cut.

Except that this is the DCC we're talking about, and they like to cut people purely for the drama it creates on camera.
