On December 1, Univision will be kicking off auditions in Miami for the sixth season of their popular reality show, â€œNuestra Belleza Latinaâ€ (Our Latin Beauty), in search of the most charming, intelligent and enchanting Hispanic women in the U.S. The auditions are taking place at Greenwich Studios (12100 Ne 16th Ave, #100, North Miami, FL 33161) from 7am â€“ 12pm. The eventual winner of the upcoming season will win a Univision Network Contract and $250,000 in cash and prizes. The auditions will go on a multi-city tour and will be spearheaded by the show’s host Giselle Blondet and reining fifth season winner Nastassja Bolivar.
Returning for its sixth installment, â€œNuestra Belleza Latinaâ€ will deliver a full force of entertainment by mixing the thrills of reality television with the glitz and glamour of beauty competitions. The program will showcase talented young Latinas from across the country that compete in an all-around battle beauty royal, enduring grueling mental and physical challenges for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win the crown and become â€œNuestra Belleza Latina.â€
Once auditions conclude, a selected group of young women will compete for the title of â€œNuestra Belleza Latina 2012,â€ where viewers will decide the fate of the 12 lucky finalists to move into the â€œNuestra Belleza Latinaâ€ mansion in Miami, and vie for a one-of-a-kind opportunity: an exclusive contract as Univision’s newest on-air personality and a $250,000 in cash and prizes.
â€œI am very proud to have represented Hispanic women across this country as the 2011 â€˜Nuestra Belleza Latina’ and be a positive female voice,â€ said Nastassja Bolivar. â€œThis has been an incredible journey that has provided me an invaluable opportunity to live and continue pursuing my dreams.â€
Renowned beauty coach Osmel Sousa, who also is president of Miss Venezuela and recently won Miss World 2011, Mexico’s former Miss Universe, Lupita Jones, and heartthrob from Univision’s hit novela â€œEva Luna,â€ Julian Gil return as the panel of judges who, along with viewer participation, will determine the finalists.
