Since "Cheer" debuted on Netflix, the world is suddenly full of school spirit. This includes Chrissy Teigen, who wrote on Instagram, "watching cheer on Netflix got me reminiscing about how i sucked at cheerleading almost as much as I sucked at doing my brows. Truly no idea how I made this team. The best part is they claimed there was no JV/varsity but one squad got to cheer for basketball and football and the other (mine) got volleyball and wrestling. I still remember my mat cheers though. Go fight win baby. Go fight win." But she's far from the first celeb who rocked a pom-pom.
