The Super Bowl is nearly here. The experts have weighed in. Well ... almost all the experts. I reached out to models Julia Friedman, Elle Johnson, Amberleigh West, Britt Bergmeister, Tiffany Toth, Steph Snyder and Billie Jo Powers for their Super Bowl 50 predictions.

  1. Who will win? Panthers 31-20.
  2. Which team are you rooting for? Broncos, they’re the closest NFL team to Park City. Plus, I’ve loved Peyton Manning ever since he did that Saturday Night Live United Way Digital Short!
  3. What’s your favorite NFL Team? I grew up in Northern California so I’m a big 49ers fan -- especially since they were kind enough to let Jim Harbaugh go to Michigan.
  4. What are your plans for the big game? First Half: Sitting at the bar in the Mexican restaurant down the street, eating short rib nachos and drinking Deschutes River Ale. Second Half: Laying in bed in a tank top and sweats, drinking club soda on the rocks and trying to undo the damage I did to myself in the first half.
  5. Are you excited for Coldplay’s halftime performance? Only if there’s a nip slip.

  1. Who will win? Carolina, 21-14.
  2. Which team are you rooting for? Not rooting for either team. I'm a giant Seahawks fan.
  3. What’s your favorite NFL team? Seahawks!!
  4. What are your plans for the big game? Nothing special. Just watching the game.
  5. Are you excited for Coldplay’s halftime performance? Excited to see Coldplay perform—I like their music.

  1. Who will win? Panthers, 35-17.
  2. Which team are you rooting for? I wouldn’t be upset if the Broncos win, having the oldest QB to bring a team to the Super Bowl has a certain caché. However, Newton’s records are outstanding and I think as a whole the Panthers deserve the win a little more.  
  3. What’s your favorite NFL team? PATRIOTS!! (hence why I prefer Panthers for the win). 
  4. What are your plans for the big game? I love making a mean home-cooked chili and having some friends over to watch the game. 
  5. Are you excited for Coldplay’s halftime performance? Coldplay will be great! I’d love to see Aerosmith sometime soon though…!
 

Tiffany Toth

  1. Who will win? I think Carolina, 30-17.
  2. Which team are you rooting for? Not really a fan of either team.
  3. What’s your favorite NFL team? The Green Bay Packers.
  4. What are your plans for the big game? I'll be in bunny suit at the Playboy Super Bowl party, which is always a great time. Then I'll watch the game with some friends.
  5. Are you excited for Coldplay’s halftime performance? Of course! Always love the halftime shows!
