Gentlemen, say hello to Jessica VerSteeg, a 25-year-old model (from Oskaloosa, IA) who wants to be the next Miss Iowa and just happens to date N.Y. Giants safety Tyler Sash. The suspended Sash (tested positive for Adderall) tweeted over the weekend: “My girlfriend @jessversteeg is running for Ms. Iowa follow her to keep up with her.”
A full Busted Coverage investigation ensued and we figured out that VerSteeg’s career should explode over this news.
What’s the biggest sport in the United States? Football.
What’s the biggest gossip sport in the United States? Football.
Do men take interest in the girlfriends/wives of NFL players? Yes.
According to Oskaloosa News:
VerSteeg says modeling is getting her ready for a contest she otherwise would not have entered. It took encouragement from a friend, as well as a very personal reason before she decided to participate.
“And then I met Miss Iowa this year and she is very, very sweet. A lovely girl and she really inspired me to do it. Also, my mother is a breast cancer survivor and when I got the National Breast Cancer Foundation to sponsor me it just lit up my eyes and I really wanted to be a part of it.”


Ladies, this just goes to show that big things can happen to you no matter where you might come from. Oskaloosa is in the middle of nowhere Iowa. Seriously, look at this place on a map. The competition goes down Oct. 13 & 14. When was the last time a current NFL girlfriend was competing for a Miss USA crown? BC researchers tell us this might be a first.
Fingers crossed.
