But of course, we all know the real reason that Karlie is dating him; when the Rams drafted him in 2010, Sam signed a six year, $78 million contract that guarantees him $50 million. Posted via Mobile Device
Sam Bradford is a legitimately good dude and a good quarterback. He's more than a little goofy looking, but Karlie isn't traditionally attractive either, so I think they look good together. He also is going to be entering the third year of a six year, $78 million dollar contract with $50 million in guaranteed money. I'm SURE that has NOTHING to do with her interest in him.
Oh come on, have you seen any top model dating an unemployed guy that is no penny?? Most of them all date rich boys! And I'm not blaming them cause I would do the same :P , however we all know money isn't the key to happiness. But being able to shop everyday and buy nice stuff and clothes is what every girl desires. Nobody knows the reason why Karlie fell for this guy but really if he had no job, she wouldn't fall for him. I don't believe that. Unemployed guys aren't attractive to top models. They love the rich boys! But Karlie, you did the right thing, a guy with money is always better than a guy that has none.
^All I'll say is that as a pretty avid fan of the NFL, I can say with a relatively strong degree of certainty that Sam Bradford is a legitimately good man. We can talk about his money or how goofy he looks and so forth, but from a personality standpoint, he strikes me as a pretty nice catch. Of course, this is from a limited amount of information; I have never met or spoken with him; but I think Karlie has done pretty well. I just hope this is a legitimate relationship and not merely her trying to increase her visibility or latch on to some dude with money.
Karlie may be well known among fashion circles, but Sam is far more well known by the general populace. He won the Heisman Trophy; the award for the best player in college football; in 2008, he was the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, he won the NFL rookie of the year award in 2010 and he came within one game of leading the Rams to the playoffs after they only won one game the previous season. He is considerably more famous than Karlie, and if she is worth $5 million, she has only made one tenth of what Sam's contract guarantees him.
Is it confirmed that they are really an item? Because Her PR people have been trying to make her into a celebrity for a long time now starting with those Leonardo Di Caprio rumours to Eddie, followed by that ridiculous "F*ck Me" video to now this...
Most people I know (straight guys included) would have no trouble identifying Karlie Kloss.. it's quite easy: girl looking bitchy in the Marc Jacobs posters everywhere. This Sam guy on the other hand ..
And seriously, it's not 1956 anymore guys, the girl's a millionaire, I'm not exactly sure she's craving for one more million or getting treated to "fancy" trips she can very easily afford herself .. if anything, I actually kind of understand why someone that's making as much money as Karlie would go for someone that's also doing exceptionally well too: less pressure.. what the girls in Sara Ziff's documentary were talking about.. at 19 her circumstances are extremely rare, you probably just want to find someone you can relax with without feeling like you're constantly making them feel awkward by paying for everything or feeling too uncomfortable about it yourself.
They both look cute.. and they're dressed like 70% of Coachella goers, dressing like it's Halloween or the opening of a new Urban Outfitters isn't the norm..
Haha , I doubt Sam Bradford is widely known on an international level, as I (along with many other friends of mine) honestly had no clue as to who he was before he started dating Karlie!
Some users seem really intent on making Sam Bradford look like the 'bigger' star in this relationship.. Although I will say this :It depends on what you're interested in. If you're interested in fashion and tumblr , you're bound to know who Karlie Kloss is. If you're interested in sports , then yes Sam Bradford's name may ring a more familiar bell to you.
Karlie Kloss gets decent press coverage here (down under!) in various types of magazines , from fashionable ones , to tabloid coverage .. whereas I've never seen Sam's face on magazines in my life..
Meh , point is , you can't argue who the bigger star is , it's all circumstantial.
^I didn't mean to try to minimize Karlie. I was more trying to, as the resident NFL fan here, explain who Sam Bradford is.
I actually agree with you, Karlie may be more well known internationally, but them both being American -- Sam is MUCH more well known here, where football is king.
However, I agree with everyone else that the accusations she is dating him for money are pretty weak. She could have her pick of guys with money, and she is certainly a wealthy teenager of her own merit. If you want to come up with the superficial reason, it's probably that she's dating him because he's a jock, and representing her hometown (St. Louis). I doubt she'd look his way twice if it weren't for that fact, as he is hardly a Tom Brady in looks, though I'm sure he's a nice guy.

Most people outside of fashionistas in the U.S. probably have no idea who Karlie Kloss is but I'm guessing a lot of people know who Sam Bradford is-- I mean the dude won the Heisman and is a QB in the NFL.
I think Karlie wants to be the next Gisele. She seems to be modeling her career after Gisele by forcing the "sexy" image and aligning herself with actors, Victoria's Secret and now dating an NFL star. Karlie is a great high fashion model but I don't see her having the classic beauty or body to attain a high level of mainstream appeal. I was looking at pics of her at Coachella on her thread and there's no way she should be anywhere near a VS or swimsuit runway.
I guess Sam Bradford is supposed the be her Tom Brady but unfortunately she and Sam aren't as attractive a couple as Gisele and Tom.
