The spirits among the viewers of Our Latin Beauty, which returns to the screen on September 26, are on the surface. And right in the middle of the controversy caused by the words of Jomari Goyso, who in a video posted on the show’s Instagram, is seen stating that reality is not a beauty pageant, Univision settled the discussion and announced what the program will be.
Far from the idea that for years existed around Nuestra Belleza Latina, seen as a beauty contest, where the young women who did not agree with the exclusionary parameters that the program promoted under the Osmel Sousa era, this time NBL comes with a more comprehensive format, where a job is being offered and there are several applicants.
This was revealed by the channel, through a statement in which they warned that Nuestra Belleza Latina should be seen as a great job opportunity, where the position of “queen” of season number 12 is offered, to be able to work on television, to who they prefer to call “personality”.
“With a stellar jury and the classic challenges with a twist, the new season of NBL will be the most demanding job interview on television,” said Univision in its letter. “In the end, only one contestant will win the top prize: being Univision’s new television personality.”
And regarding the guidelines that will determine the course of the competition, which will premiere on Univision’s “Domingos en Familia” block on September 26 at 8 pm ET / PT (7 pm Central), one of the channel’s executives explained that it will be a fight against stereotypes.
“We are very excited to bring the latest edition of the popular ‘Nuestra Belleza Latina’ franchise to Univision’s Domingos en Familia to our audience,” said Ignacio Meyer, EVP of Music and Non-Scripted Entertainment, Univision Television Networks Group. “The program will continue to break stereotypes of female beauty in society and empower Hispanic women.”
Meyer went further and stated that this edition will feature a much more varied group of contestants.
“It will be his most diverse season to date. We will also present new talent, who, alongside popular NBL personalities, will guide the contestants through their experience on the show, ”said the executive.
So far, the name of the contestants who will compete for the Nuestra Belleza Latina crown for several weeks has not been revealed, but it is already known that Giselle Blondet, Jomari Goyso, former Miss Colombia Daniella Álvarez and actor Adal Ramones, will be the judges of the contest.
It was also revealed that Amara La Negra will be the “host of the mansion”, while the current queen, Migbelis Castellanos, will be the digital reporter and Alejandra Espinoza will have the responsibility of leading the program.
