Bobby Petrino’s other girl “Miss Motorcycle Mania” Alison Melder

Obvious photoshop … thanks, I know.

So apparently Bobby Petrino is a regular old Tiger Woods.

Deadspin reviewed the phone records released by the University of Arkansas through the Freedom of Information act and discovered something rather interesting. Apparently Coach Petrino has a soft spot for biker chicks. Deadspin uncovered over 200 text messages from Alison Melder, a former “Miss Motorcycle Mania” model and current senate assistant with the Republican Party of Arkansas.

Melder, 26, graduated from Arkansas-Little Rock with a degree in political science and has worked with the Young Republicans as well as the state GOP; she also worked on Jim Keet’s gubernatorial campaign in 2010. (On Twitter, her bio reads “Go Lakers, Go Hogs, and Go GOP.) [Update, 4:10 p.m.:Melder has been scrubbed from the Arkansas Young Republicans’ website. Here’s before, and here’s after.] But her political work is hardly the first thing that comes up when you search for her name: she did a spot of modeling, at least a few years back. One modeling profile she created four years agocontains a portfolio of bikini and lingerie images, and she seems to be a favorite of The Dirty. She also lists herself as winner of the 2008 Miss Bikini USA and Miss Motorcycle Mania competitions.


There were seven picture messages sent, all from Melder to Petrino. Melder’s phone has since been disconnected. Obviously these are probably not something that can be viewed on this website, but if they are uncovered, we’ll link to them.

Also, Petrino’s Fayetteville home is for sale.
