MIAMI, FL---The Univision Television Network celebrated the grand finale of its breakout hit “Nuestra Belleza Latina” (Our Latin Beauty) that combines the glamour of a beauty competition with the excitement of reality television, on Tuesday, May 22, 2007. Hosted by popular Univision personality Giselle Blondet, the finale was a nailbitting elimination for the six finalists who awaited their fate in front of a live studio audience. Captivated viewers from across the country voted for their favorite contestant and crowned Alejandra Espinoza, the 20 year old Mexican beauty from San Ysidro, CA, the very first “Nuestra Belleza Latina.”
In addition to the title, Alejandra has won the opportunity of a lifetime, a coveted contract as Univision’s newest on-air personality, a $50,000 cash prize from AT&T, formerly Cingular Wireless; a 2007 Ford Edge valued at $35,000; and a $40,000 contract to represent JCPenney. Maybelline New York and Garnier will provide Alejandra and her guest with two all expense paid trips, one to New York for a shopping spree and one to Miami for a spa day, for a total value of $40,000.
Alejandra is one of ten siblings, whose parents emigrated from Mexico six years ago. Even within this large family, she always stood out as the most ambitious and curious. Before participating in “Nuestra Belleza Latina,” Alejandra worked as a cashier for a foreign currency exchange service and in her spare time competed in several beauty pageants. She won several local competitions and ultimately placed fourth in the very prestigious “Nuestra Belleza, México.”
“We would like to congratulate Alejandra Espinoza on this great achievement and acknowledge all the contestants for their hard work and dedication throughout the competition,” said Alina Falcón, President and Operating Manager for the Univision Network. “We are thrilled with the success
