While it's easy to think that NFL cheerleaders are rich, and glamorous and have affairs with NFL players. However it's far from the truth. The average cheerleader makes between $50 and $75 per game. You might say: "well, but at least they get to hang out with NFL stars, I'm sure a few get married to them." You'd be wrong. In fact, they're forbidden from socializing with the players!
They can make extra money by participating in paid public appearances, but they have to be approved by their coordinator. Some cheerleaders make a career of all the attention they get though. Teri Hatcher used to be a cheerleader for the San Francisco 49s before she jumped on to make hit TV shows like "Lois and Clark" and "Desperate Housewives."
