The stereotype probably derives from the other two stereotypes...
-- First stereotype: "Popular" people are generally less intelligent and are just loud and pretty people.
-- Second stereotype: The more attractive you are, the less intelligent you are.
While I have known a certain amount cheerleaders that were uhh "not the brightest," I have known smart and popular cheerleaders, thus shattering the stereotype. Cheerleaders are people just like everyone else. You have your smart ones... and then you have your not-smart ones.0
