Buffalo Jill of The Month Rita

This month, we take a look at 2nd year vet Rita as our Buffalo Jill of The Month. Dancing on Omarlla’s line on gamedays between Jami and Gina, Rita’s career with the Jills wasn’t your most typical. Her rookie season was in 2008 and, after taking 3 years off, she came back in 2012 in the best shape of her life. During those three years away, she worked extra hard on physical fitness, not only in herself but in others. Working as a personal trainer, fitness is a huge deal for her. Her longtime boyfriend is a devoted weightlifter and has even worked for the Bills in their strength and conditioning department.

There’s a lot more to Rita than her fitness or even what she reveals in her Jills bio. Besides her dedication and motivation, she’s also incredibly zany and spontaneous. She wasn’t even sure about whether or not she wanted to return for 2012 or not until a few days before the workshop. She was thinking she’d either return to the Jills or get involved in some bikini fitness shows like another alum, 2010-11 Bikini USA Covergirl Jessica Daniels, did a few years ago. She thought about it for weeks beforehand and realized she missed it too much not to return for another season. With 16 years of dance and 4 of cheering before her 1st time on the Jills, she felt she had put too much work into that area not to give the Jills another go-round. She didn’t make a big deal about it to her boyfriend or family before trying out just in case she didn’t make it so I was actually her biggest supporter at tryouts. As far as the zany, if there’s something weird and strange to try, odds are she’ll give it a look if she hasn’t already, whether it be doing something herself or pulling pranks on some of the people she’s closest to. Her little sister used to be a target of Rita’s pranks over the years and probably still has nightmares about them but has found some small ways of getting revenge at times as well the last few years.
