Model Camille Kostek talks Sports Illustrated, cheerleading Camille Kostek opens up about her opportunity to be a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and the hard work that went into being a New England Patriots cheerleader. Former New England Patriots cheerleader Camille Kostek has been eager to trade her pom poms for a bikini.
Kostek told Fox News she’s always envisioned herself as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and believes the popular magazine offers an empowering message for women. I need to come back and write a caption when this has settled in. It’s been such a refreshing, exciting time for me to model and be represented by a company that embraces women of every shape and size. It’s been so nice to not have that pressure to change just to be on a runway show or photo shoot. That’s exactly what I stand for as a woman and a sister. I just want to send the best message possible to women.
And I’m just so thankful because I honestly never thought I could model. I’ve always been told I wasn’t tall enough, I wasn’t thin enough. It’s motivating when someone tells you it’s possible to do something that seems impossible. The Connecticut native always knew she would be in the spotlight. As a child, she often put on shows for her parents, and by age 3 she was taking dance lessons.
Then, by 7, Kostek was competing on a national level, but was ready to do more. I loved watching football of all sports. My dad was a Giants fan, but the Giants didn’t have cheerleaders. By 19, Kostek was training to cheer for the New England Patriots and joined the squad at age 20.
She was one of 500 girls competing for 20 spots. Sure, I can kick my leg over my head, but how do I get noticed? I remember designing my costume as close to their uniform as possible so they can envision me already a member of their team. But becoming a cheerleader in 2013 wasn’t as simple as an outfit change. Kostek insisted an eye-catching personality was just as valued. Once you’re on the squad, you’re representing a huge and reputable organization.
And the training certainly wasn’t for rookies, especially when it comes to the Super Bowl. So we’re there before even the players show up, practicing our routines. So it can be a 12-hour day sometimes, depending on how the game goes. We’ll be completely drenched in sweat, getting ready with hair and makeup and doing it all over again on the field. We’re performing in front of 70,000 fans, at least.
