* Cycling races like the UsefulNotes/TourDeFrance have "podium girls" - pretty women in revealing dresses who kiss the winners on the cheek. Some races like the Vuelta a Espana and the Tour Down Under have dropped this as sexist.

* WWF's ProfessionalWrestling/{{Godfather}} was, during the Attitude Era, accompanied by "Hos". Although they generally did nothing, it's an interesting trivia note that ProfessionalWrestling/{{Victoria}} debuted as the ho that the ProfessionalWrestling/RightToCensor powerbombed through a table. In addition, another one of the hos was holder of the Hardcore Championship... for about a minute.

She's holding the card, waving the race flag, or handing out the trophies with the accompanying bouquet. She's not participating in the sport (at least not on the front lines). She is, however, [[FanService not wearing very much]]. In Japan, this trope is called "Race Queen" and these girls are usually also some form of ''Idol''. Their official job description is holding an umbrella for the driver but that's obviously not the only reason they are there.

Similarly, many combat sports such as boxing and mixed martial arts have "ring girls" whose job it is to provide a bit of FanService between rounds. They usually will carry a poster-sized card signifying the round number.

Some see the presence of these women as problematic for a few reasons. Without entering that discussion, it should be worth noting that these women have a job, ''modeling'', and that job takes a great deal of work that has to be done off-camera. Disparaging comments are unacceptable.

* The show TheUltimateFighter, which differs from many reality shows by being a purely athletic competition, will bring out a ring girl for the exhibition fights that the fighters take part in. Just like in boxing, their job is to provide some FanService and show the upcoming round. There will always be a few close-ups of the ring girl - especially her butt. See MaleGaze.


Added DiffLines:

* Boxing and mixed martial arts shows have models who hold up cards indicating the next round number during the rest periods between rounds. They sometimes also are present for the discussions before and after fights.

* Bell and Urd occasionally do this in the racing-centric chapters of ''Manga/OhMyGoddess''. Urd more often than Bell - half the time Bell forgoes this in favor actually ''being'' one of the racers.
