Athletes Who Should be Supermodels

Selita Ebanks has walked down runways all over the globe but she's never strutted her stuff down an airline aisle way. That was until last week when she and Miranda Kerr hosted a Victoria's Secret Supermodel Pajama Party on a Virgin America flight from New York to Los Angeles.

Over the course of the six-hour flight, Ebanks - a SI swimsuit model -- and Kerr, both dressed in comfy PJs, made in-flight announcements ("Who wants free drinks?"), turned the first class area into a dance floor (no seatbelts needed) and found time to chat with us about sports.

While Kerr loves watching Rugby, she thinks that she and the rest of the Victoria Secret's Angels could make a mark in the sports world if they wanted to. "I always wanted to be a famous gymnast and I used to be a gymnast when I was growing up so I could be a gymnast," she said. "I think Selita with those long legs she could possibly do the high jump, Karolina [Kurkova] I think she's would be good swimmer, she has those long arms and legs, I think that Heidi [Klum] would be a good runner with her energy and then Adriana [Lima] maybe she'd be good at the long jump with those long legs of hers. I'm sure she'd get a lot of coverage."

Meanwhile Ebanks, who can often be found courtside at Knicks games, thinks that it would probably be more likely to see athletes make the transition to the runway than the Angels competing in the Olympics. With that in mind she gives her top five athletes that could one day be supermodels.

1. Serena Williams - Well I would definitely put Serena at the top of this list because I think her body, which I've seen, is insane and that girl has some "Mmm, mmm, mmm." Actually our little thing is saying that you're the bomb.com and she's definitely the bomb.com. I guess that's the thing we share.

2. Tom Brady - I would say Brady because he's hot who doesn't want to see him topless. He's a winner on and off the field.

3. David Beckham – Who doesn't love Beckham? He's perfect hot.

4. Kelly Slater – He's so hot and he's best surfer in the world. I guess there's something about being hot and being really good at your sport.

5. Osi Umenyiora - His features remind me a little of Tyson Beckford. He has great features but I think he has to hit the gym a little bit before he hits the runway but I'm sure he has the confidence to pull any look off.

Honorable Mention: Nate Robinson – He's my favorite basketball player but I don't think he would have the confidence to pull it off but it would be hilarious. I love little Nate, he looks like a little 50 Cent. Whenever I go to the games I harass him so bad like, "Yo, little 25" or I'm like, "Get that little 50," because he plays with so much ambition. I love that. That's hot.

Did Selita miss any? What athletes do you see walking the runway one day?

Serena??? I just don't think there are any 195 pound supermodels...

I agree Serena Williams shouldn't make that list. She's got a bigger booty than Tyra Banks, her thighs are thicker than a lot of men's waists, and she's just chunky all around. She looks more like a man.

serena Williams oh yeah that's right

Following the tennis theme:
Anna Kournikova
Martina Hingis
Maria Sharapova

Not the Williams sisters, models are supposed to be more delicate, they are too manly to be models.
Ewww Serena Williams? She looks like Eddie Winslow in a wig.

Serena Williams a supermodel?
She looks loke LaVar Arrington and has bigger feet than Shaq.
The only product she could model would be for anything pro-masturbation.

Serena has the legs and butt of a line backer. They don't make attractive clothing in her size.

Marat Safin and Feliciano Lopez. They are tennis players. Way better looking than any of the men on this list except maybe the surfer.

Serena????
I don't think she is hideous but if she were not a tennis player who would look twice at her? Extremely fit with a nice, average face. But there is certainly nothing wrong with her.

I thought Serena and Venus were guys??? You mean they're not? WOW...well smack my face...then they are probably the ugliest WOMEN?? I have ever seen..

Ashley Force should be at the top. As a competitor of hers, I can tell you that she looks great (in person) whether sweaty from battle, or all fixed up for the camera.
I totally agree that Serena should model the latest in Bigfoot wear.
I hear the fall Sasquatch line is going to be "FABULOUS".

Feliciano Lopez, my boy is beautiful...He is number 3 on the list. I don't get Andy Roddick on here. He is cute, but that's about it

A Tranny at the Top of the List!!! "Serena's" brother "Venus" is probably green with envy. It's no surprise that "Serena" is #1. Trannies are hot right now...just look at prime time TV (no pun intended): "Dirty Sexy Money" & "Big Shots".

Serena Williams? Model for what?? Mens clothes?

Cesc Fabregas and Christiano Ronaldo
Definitely Maria Sharapova! Wow.

Serena has the looks and attitude to be a model. All of those who say she is not pretty better take a good look at themselves in the mirror and find a reflection of Shrek as green as envy itself! These world is still full of haters and racists who only consider white as beautiful and non-whites as ugly! Thanks to these two supermodels for having the broadmindedness to look beyond color.

Amanda Beard
Natalie Gulbis
Maria Sharapova
Stacy Keibler (yes, i realize "athlete" is pushing it, but hey... those legs...)

This is a no-brainer! Serena Williams has the body of a Black Goddess. Please Serena quit tennis and go onto the runway. And please wear some bikinis so we African-American men can swoon and squeal: Thank You Jesus for this beautiful woman!!!
These idiots would swallow their tongues if they saw Serena williams in person. She is gorgeous. Tom Brady is a good looking dude. And the best quarterback ever...I hate that guy!

Serena Williams is one of those women with perfectly average, pretty but not exceptional facial features, whose face comes alive with the force of her personality. Not classically beautiful, but extraordinarily charismatic and attractive.

And sure, if you're a scrawny guy, a woman with muscles can be intimidating. But if strong women don't frighten you, then Serena's body is an amazing example of power and athleticism. It's also one of most beautiful bodies you will ever see, anywhere.

Put Serena's face together with that body and her enormous personal charisma, and you've got one of the sexiest women on the planet. Yes, I also love the slender, waif-like look, and the classic Hollywood glamour look, but on the list of women I'd do anything to spend one night with, Serena's right around number five (after Halle Berry, Scarlett Johanson, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Tilly).

Why can men not like Serena? It has nothing to do with color. She just is not attractive. Jada Pinkett is and she is black. Serena just really looks like a Volkswagon. If you like really big girls i guess she is okay. She isn't graceful or eye-catching though. I am a big guy, 6'1" and 190, so don't give me that small guy crap. She simply is fugly.

Sorry...not even a B10 guy but if you can honestly say that Ohio State vs. Michigan is not the biggest college football rivalry, you need your writing privileges taken away!!! I'll even say it is bigger than Red Sox vs. Yankees. When it comes to college football rivalries, it is a no brainer! Retire now.
