Back in 2009, we spoke with former Broncos cheerleader Renee Herlocker about being named the Ultimate Spike Girl, as well as a cameo in Iron Man 2 alongside Robert Downey Jr. At the time, she talked about her hopes that the Spike win would lead to more TV gigs -- like, for instance, her holiday weekend showcase as sideline reporter, sorta, for the Nathan's hot-dog eating contest broadcast on ESPN. Get your minds out of the gutter!
Check out a clip of Herlocker quizzing Joey Chestnut about his fifth consecutive Nathan's victory, followed by Spike Girl pics in which she shows off a very different wardrobe.
