The Hottest Athlete Hook-Ups of 2012

Samantha Steele

Dated: Christian Ponder, Minnesota Wikings (NFL)
When: Engaged in December

In October, Vikings QB Ponder came out and said that, yes, ESPN reporter Samantha Steele was now his official designated receiver. When Ponder's performance hit the skids in the weeks after, jerk-off fans said that the practice of having a girlfriend clearly was to blame. Ponder addressed the non-situation situation after the Vikes beat the Lions with a tweet in which he thanked Samantha for helping the team win. Earlier this week, Steele confirmed that the couple is engaged. We wish them the best.
