Charissa Thompson — Celeb Crush

Seattle native Charissa Thompson is such a charming television host and sportscaster, that we’re willing to forgive the news that she’s going to co-host ABC’s new celebrity diving show, ‘Splash.’ Her co-host is Joey Lawrence (whoa!) which is slightly less forgivable, but Katherine Webb is going to be one of the divers, so…We’ll be watching. 

The fact is, girl knows her stuff. She’s done it all, and hosted most of it: NFL sideline reports, Superbowl coverage, college football and basketball, NHL ice-level reporting, we could go on for days. She’s also hosted tons of shows, notably: ‘Friday Night Tailgate,’ Speed Network’s ‘Fast Track to Fame,’ ‘Toughest Cowboy,’ and FSN’s ‘The Best Damn Sports Show Period’ with Chris Rose and John Salley.

In 2011 she made the ESPN network way, way more awesome when she was hired as co-host on ‘Numbers Never Lie,’ but these days she hosts ‘SportsNation’ alongside Marcellus Wiley.

It’s no secret that Charissa easy is on the eyes; she made the list of Playboy’s ‘Sexiest Sportscasters’ in 2009, and made it into the Top Five finals.

She is currently dating ESPN analyst Jay Williams though, so don’t get your hopes up.
