Lennay Kekua may never have been real but she is still hot, apparently.
The fake girlfriend of Manti Te'o appeared, sort of, at No. 69 on Maxim's annual "Hot 100 List."

Ranked between Victoria’s Secret model Anne V. (68) and swimsuit model Nina Agdal (70), Kekua was selected because "she's got a ton of great qualities, including looking awesome in a bikini." Rather than running a picture of Diane O'Meara, who was unknowingly the face of Kekua before Deadspin unraveled the hoax, Maxim opted to feature a black bikini floating over an inviting beach scene.

Kekua wasn't the only lady on the list with a connection to the world of sports, with some of the women of MMA making appearances.
