African safari-hunting cheerleader fires up critics with hottest hunter contest

A Texas college cheerleader is under fire again, this time for starting an online contest to find the hottest male hunter.

Controversy is nothing new when it comes to Kendall Jones, the 19-year-old Texas Tech student and avid hunter. Last summer she was in the cross-hairs of critics over photos on her Facebook page displaying the rare big-game she killed on African safaris.

"Fox & Friends" reported Sunday that for her "Hot Hunter" contest, Jones asked guys to submit photos of themselves in their hunting gear. She got lots of responses, including shots of guys posing with their big-game trophies.

Critics took aim at the teen over her competition.

"Let's hunt you for your blonde locks …," Calvin wrote on Jones' Facebook page.

"You may love your makeup but it doesn't hide the monster you are," Jennifer said, according to "Fox & Friends."

Jones picked a North Carolina hunter as the "hottest one" the other day as she fired back at her detractors.

"The real reason I did this whole competition was to prove that what really pisses off the anti-hunting crowd is not that I hunt, or that I pose with my trophies, or that I'm proud of my achievements . . . it's the fact that I'm a girl and I'm doing these things," she said on her Facebook page.
