Since the reality show Nuestra Belleza LatinaIn 2007, 11 beautiful and intelligent women have been crowned as winners of the pageant. And although at the time all the queens of the Univisión contest have risen to fame, developing a prolific career in the world of entertainment, some of them have shone more than others.
Such is the case of the winner of the fifth season of Nuestra Belleza Latina, who turned out to be Nastassja Bolívar, born in Miami, of a Nicaraguan father and a Colombian mother.
At just 22 years old, the spectacular model, from the beginning, enchanted the viewers and the jury, who mainly saw as her Achilles heel the lack of complete command of the Spanish language, something that the contestant was avoiding throughout the competition.
Nastassja Bolívar, was progressing little by little towards the end, with her tenacity and discipline, and to this day she is considered one of the best figures to have passed through the contest, with an athletic body that was her main weapon throughout the contest.
After announcing the final ruling, Osmel Sousa, president of the panel of judges of the Univisión contest, warned that Nastassja swept the votes of the viewers, being one of the most overwhelming triumphs in the entire history of the program.
“The public has spoken and the candidate who is in first place had half a million votes more than the one who came in second place,” said the so-called Zar of Beauty, while on stage they waited for the final decision, holding hands, Nastassja Bolívar and Puerto Rican Gredmarie Colón.
Colombian Nicole Suarez, 19, ranked third, while Cuban Jenny Arzola, 22, was fourth and Miriam Hernández, from Mexico, was fifth. The sixth place went to Patricia Corcino, from Puerto Rico.
Diana Cano, from Ecuador, Maribel De Santiago, from Mexico, Darla Delgado, from Puerto Rico, Juliete Cabrera, from Cuba, Jocell Villa, from Mexico, Yahaira Nuñes and Paulette Acosta, finished completing the group of semifinalists who disputed the Crown.
The fifth season of Nuestra Belleza Latina was a stepping stone in the professional career of Nastassja Bolívar, who not only knew how to shine in the show, which took place between March 6 and May 22, but thanks to her recognition, she later represented to Nicaragua in Miss Universe, where she was a semifinalist and became a reporter for Univision programs.
The 12th edition of Nuestra Belleza Latina is about to begin next September, and Univision already promises that it will be a unique and unforgettable show, full of surprises.
