Time to Vote for the Next Ranger Up Girl!

Thanks to all of the beautiful ladies who took the time to put together photos and an essay. After hundreds of submissions, we’ve whittled the list down to 25. Your feedback is directly guiding our decision, so make sure to cast your vote! As a very public process, passing on a link to this page and survey is a great way to make sure the girl you want to win gets selected.

So, get started! Here’s how:

  1. Click HERE to open the survey link (it will open in a new window)
  2. Using the slideshow below, go through all 25 of our beautiful ladies. MAKE SURE TO GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE LIST, as these are in no particular order.

In case you missed it, click HERE to open the survey for the next Ranger Up Girl.


After you vote, here’s a little more info as to how the final decision will be made:

Phase 1 – April 7-12:

Cast Your Vote for your vote for the Top Ranger Up Girl as well as your choice for the top girl for each military branch.

Phase 2: April 12-15

We’ll gather everyone’s feedback and the Ranger Up guys, along with some help from our blog friends, will decide which ladies will be the future Ranger Up Girls by the second week of April.

Below is a list of all candidates with their corresponding photos and essay. MAKE SURE TO READ THE ESSAYS, as their written presentation is a big factor in our consideration.

As a reminder, here’s what we’re looking for in our next Ranger Up Girl(s):

Cool – comfortable both in the public eye and private eye, she needs to be fun and intriguing
Gorgeous – DUH, but notice we somehow managed to not make it #1
Humble – hard to tell from the written word, we’re looking for a woman that’s at home in front of the camera but is also able to sit down and talk easily with our wounded soldiers.


Below posted March 24, 2009

We’ve heard the message from you loud and clear.

We need more Ranger Up Girls and we need them now.

Well, Ranger Up is pleased to announce the first ever Ranger Up Girl Contest!

Who: Cool, patriotic, beautiful women over the age of 18 (yes, we need proof)

What: Ranger Up is looking for patriotic, cool, and, of course, beautiful women to be the next set of Ranger Up Girls!

When: We are accepting submissions from now until 3 April 2009.

Please submit your pictures, service affiliation, and paragraph at [email protected]

How it works:

  1. Please send your three favorite pictures. At least one should be full-body and they should be current.
  2. Please send a short paragraph about why you want to be the next Ranger Up Girl
  3. Let us know which service you’d like to be affiliated with (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or You Pick). At the end of this, there will be a Miss Ranger Up for each service and an overall winner. If you choose You Pick, we’ll pick.
  4. If you win, the Ranger Up photo shoot that you will take part in will be a bathing suit type shoot, so please be comfortable with that kind of attire!
  5. Be legitimately cool if you want to win. We love beautiful women, but the winner will have multiple opportunities to represent the company, and by extension, the men and women the company serves, so we take this seriously. Other companies might just be looking for eye candy; we’re looking for women we can be proud of…that are also eye candy.

More details:

Step 1: Submit your pictures and essay by 3 April 2009
Step 2: The Ranger Up fans vote on their favorites from 6 April to 12 April
Step 3: Ranger Up identifies the five finalists.
Step 4: Dancing with the Stars Style – Celebrity Judges comprise half the score and Ranger Up fans final vote comprise the other half
Step 5: We notify the winners and bring you out to the UWC show!

What you get if you win:

  1. You will be featured on the Ranger Up website and the Rhino Den, and have visibility to thousands of Ranger Up fans.
  2. You will be the featured Ring Girl at the UWC’s LIVE show in front of 500k people on April 24-26.
  3. You will be featured in at least one Ranger Up advertisement in Fight! Magazine
  4. You will be invited to attend VIP events representing Ranger Up throughout the year
  5. You will have a strong (though not yet guaranteed) opportunity to be the Fight! Magazine girl of the month.
  6. Contest Monetary Awards:
    – Miss Ranger Up – $500
    – Miss Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines – $250
  7. The opportunity to hang out with the Ranger Up Guys – priceless.

Please submit your pictures, service affiliation, and paragraph at [email protected]

    Ok, just listened to Daniella’s music. She certainly has the “Tude” to be a ranger up girl. Nice pipes and these pictures here don’t do her bod justice. So many great chic’s and we only get to have 1 as another Ranger Up girl!?!

      One Ranger Up Girl? Not really! We’re also looking for ladies to represent each branch of the military.

      Anyone else have a candidate that they believe MUST BE THE NEXT RANGER UP GIRL? We’re all ears.

    Are you kiddin me!!!! Katie is hands-down the babe to beat. She represents both beauty and brawn to the fullest!!! I have the privilege of knowing this young lady on a personal level. Her dedication to the core values of the US Army represent what a true soldier is. I am retired Air Force (23 years) and would have been honored to serve under the command of Katie. Her heart felt compassion for the US Army emcompasses everyone she meets and leaves no doubt that she is “ARMY STRONG”!! Not voting for Katie as Ranger-Up Girl would simply be a major injustice…..I challenge you to read the Bio on Katie and compare it to the rest of the competitors. Take heed to her reasoning to be recognized as this years Ranger-Up Girl. You vote should be a easy one. Good luck sweetie!!! I’m pulling for ya. JW

    Good luck with the next phase ~~ you poor guys, I’m sure it will be arduous! =)

    I have a confession: I am in love with Amy,number two from the Army. What a woman!!! Amy my dear I have been working out since 1961 and am now 62. I could be your mentor.We could have intimate conversations while doing a set of barbell curls,checking our abs out,or even while doing a set of heavy squats,etc.A couple who works out together stays together. We could toast to our future while sipping on Joe Weider’s latest protein drink. I find this incredibly erotic.I also have a Chuck Norris heavy-bag(lifetime guarantee) that we could take turns holding for one another when working out on it.Our love bond would be very strong.This is a match made in heaven.We could tell every one we met on RANGERUP!Think of the possibilities!I am mature ,Italian,well read and a good conversationalist.Amy ,I want you to like me for my mind ,not just my body! I am not just another pretty face! Another plus:I have alot of hands-on experience!Bella Donna !

    Hello Katie,What can you say? Say you will be mine!You will always be my Rangerup girl!As for “swole” ,In my days (Stone Age) we called it”hypertrophy”.This term is from the Old English form dating back to pre-Shakespearian times'”hypoglauceous thouest” This language is known to only a handfull of historians and for all purposes extinct.I must tell you that I am not as large as I was 30 years ago.Alas ,some flesh has left my massive frame,leaving me as hard and lean as a great gray wolf of the North.But I am still wonder to behold and hold. I am sure with you as my training partner, I could turn back the hands of time even further! Fear not! My darling,my Italianness is still young and vigorous,No Viagra needed here!I await your decision with renewed hope for the future.Bella Donna,Katie!
