Mom is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader

Victoria is a DCC legacy. Her mother, Tina, was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader in the 1980s. Throughout the series, it can be seen that Victoria and her mom have an extremely close bond, and her mother is her closest confidant.

"I get some comments saying y’all are too close, that’s unhealthy. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s my rock, my person, my biggest supporter ever," Victoria told Netflix.

She added: "Watching and learning from the DCC as a little girlI knew I wanted to be a DCC because I loved the sparkle of the iconic uniform and getting to dance with pom poms. As I got older, I began to see how they made a difference in the lives of others – USO tours, hospital visits, nursing homes, waving to fans at the games, being a positive role model, etc and I knew I loved the organization even more. "
