Meet Tyler. She's been a FAN Girl for over three years and done several monthly wallpapers. When asked what she does in her free time, she replied, "During the fall, I spend my weekends watching football, drinking beer and sports betting. Yes, I have my own sports betting account. When football isn't on, I’m usually hanging with friends, out dancing with my girlfriends, sewing my bikini clothing line, or just kicking back."
"My favorite sport to play is basketball but my favorite sport to watch is a tie between football and basketball." Some fun facts about Tyler: she was crowned the 2001 Bandon Cranberry Queen, graduated high school in a class of 29 people, and went through a stage in her life where she dyed her hair turquoise. She's definitely a Ducks fan and can’t live in a city that doesn’t have microbrews! She also designed and sewed her basketball outfit for The FAN photo shoot, picture below.
Tyler knows what she wants in a man. "I’m attracted to men that have a sense of humor. If a guy makes me laugh, that definitely catches my attention."
