Derek Jeter is one of the most renowned playboys in the world. The Captain runs New York, runs baseball, and a modeling agency of his ex’s might be the best agency in the world.
Though he has dated some established stars (Mariah Carey) and people whose best work was behind them (Minka Kelly), there is a trend of people Jeter broke up with having their most successful years during the year or two after separation.

Hannah Davis is currently doing pretty well on her own; tall and slender, with a killer complexion and stunning eyes, Davis was the DirectTV genie, was in the Sports Illustrated 2013 Swimsuit issue, and has modeled for Victoria’s Secret. But who couldn’t use a little mid-career Jeter bump?
Fast And Furious
Jordana Brewster and Jeter were getting it on in late 2003/early 2004, and though she had already played her breakout role in Fast and Furious (2001), she was very active in 2005 filming Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and Annapolis, which both came out in 2006.

Jessica Alba got to know Jeets intimately in 2004, and he had the inside track. 2005 was huge for her as she starred in Sin City, Fantastic Four, and Into the Blue.
I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry
Jessica Biel dated Jeter in 2006, and though she was doing pretty well after Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Blade: Trinity, but 2006-08 was the most prolific period in her career.

Adriana Lima really doesn’t need any introduction, but she and Jeets were dating in 2006. Though she is famously against pre-marital sex and said she was a virgin as of April 2006, I don’t think Jeter would mind that much as long as neck was all good. Anyways, her Vogue covers in 2006 and 2008 were both record setting for the magazine’s views.
Now, I supposed there’s nothing inherent about dating Jeter that makes your career pop off after he breaks up with you. But… For an aspiring young model or actress this trend might be too much to ignore.
Either that or he just happens to date enough gorgeous women that some of them are bound to be successful. Boring.
