We’ve had great fun this year attending events in The Bahamas and Costa Rica courtesy of PlayerXT, and we found plenty of new models at these events who’ve been featured on Bullz-Eye.com, including Myste Nicole, Lindsey Eller, Angie Quesada, Maya Rochelle and Jennifer Spencer.
Our latest adventure with PlayerXT brought is to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for an event selecting The Most Beautiful Latina in the World. More than 30 beautiful Latina models traveled from 20 Latin countries to participate in this illustrious search and pageant held poolside at the Hard Rock.
Peruvian model Elody Gamarra won the competition on Saturday night. The show was hosted by Telemundo's Ritmo Deportivo's Rene Braga, and the models were presented in evening gowns, native costumes and swimsuits. Telemundo's Cindy Martinez helped Braga with the introductions.
Elody (pronounced like “melody” without the "m") hails from Lima, Peru, where she is studying to be an architect. When she is not attending the University, she is modeling or perfecting her passion of Muy Thai Boxing, in which she holds a Black Belt. Elody, along with six other finalists, will travel to Jamaica for one week in May 2010 to compete in an International Latina event sponsored by Super Clubs Resorts. Elody will also travel with PlayerXT and Telemundo to Central and South America next year to find the 2010 Most Beautiful Latina Model in the World.
The entire weekend was a blast, as we were there for the final weekend of Rehab, the famous pool party that is currently airing on TruTV. The weekend was staged and presented by PlayerXT, and sponsored by Thunderbird Resorts and Fiesta Casinos of Central and South America, Mike Hardy Real Estate Group, Piel Dorada, Ambhar Tequila, Caribbean Tan and Shirley of Hollywood. It was a weekend that the models will not forget.
On Friday night, Bullz-Eye joined the models as they attended a welcoming party at the Hard Rock VIP suite, where they were able to bowl and view the panoramic Las Vegas skyline. After the party, we all were guests of the Hard Rock in a skybox at The Joint for a Van Morrison concert. On Saturday, after the pageant, the entire group was able to attend a Pet Shop Boys concert and VIP party at Body English nightclub. Then on Sunday, we joined the models again as they closed down the world famous REHAB pool party for the summer.
The entire weekend will air on Telemundo's Ritmo Deportivo during the television sweeps and on a nationally syndicated show entitled "The Search for...", which touts a viewership of 80 million homes. In conjunction with Fiesta Casino, PlayerXT traveled the Latin world to find these beautiful models. Nick Costas of Thunderbird Resort and Fiesta Casino was able to raise thousands of dollars for a disadvantaged school in Costa Rica with his Annual Fiesta Cup.
The Hard Rock is one of the wildest spots in Las Vegas, and we’ve enjoyed many weekends there, but it’s even better when you’re surrounded by 30 amazing Latina models. We had a great time, and we were able to get more amazing photography of Elody and the other beautiful contestants. Special thanks again to Roy Hahn and Curt Holstein of PlayerXT for organizing another memorable event. Check back for photo shoots featuring Elody and many more of the beautiful Latinas!
