Varying in age from 18 to 26, the Model Latina NYC contestants will be challenged to demonstrate their savvy, beauty and style before being selected for the series, and becoming television's newest star. The show's winner will receive $25,000 in cash and a contract with Q Model Management, a modeling agency with offices in New York and Los Angeles.
The Model Latina franchise has become a star-maker, with first- and second-season winners Jessica Caban and Codie Cabral, now gracing magazines covers, appearing in TV commercials, fashion shows and movies.
Caban, the season one winner from New York, parlayed her success on the show into a variety of projects, including a contract with L'Oreal, fashion spreads in magazines, a television commercial for Chase and a photo shoot for Dreamwear, Inc. She is also appearing in feature films.
Season-two winner, San Diego County's Cabral, now based in New York, has been featured in recent Reebok and Sephora campaigns, as well as TV spots for Spike TV and LXTV.
