When I think of the “Go Daddy Girls”, the only thing that comes to mind were those Super Bowl commercials several years ago featuring Candice Michelle in the courtroom where they pushed you to the Web to see the final bits. Today GoDaddy is announcing the addition of fitness coach Jillian Michaels to the Go Daddy Girl lineup.
In addition to Michaels, the current Go Daddy Girl roster includes: Indy car racer Danica Patrick, model (?) Candice Michelle and Law Student/Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso.
Funny enough, the press release and email I received make it seem like CEO Bob Parsons “broke the news” on Twitter with a couple of tweets related to the Jillian Michaels announcement. This is smart – it may help Go Daddy get blog posts on those tech blogs that focus on Twitter-related news.
Last week there was a lot of discussion and speculation if Go Daddy was up for sale. Many outlets reported Go Daddy hiring Qatalyst Partners to assist with a sale and the company seeking a price over $1 billion.
Domain Name Wire noted, “Is Bob Parsons selling Go Daddy? Who knows. But I’m guessing if he does he’ll have a clause that allows him to continue managing the Go Daddy Girls.”
