The Search for the CW Girl

Our favorite contest is winding down. You have only until April 17th to vote for one of the five finalists. The ballots are open and you can cast your vote via either text message, the PR Mix CW website, or on the Primera Hora web site (well not really, because it redirects you to the PRMixCW voting page).

The finalists remaining are: Iris, Yahayra, Adienid, Leika, Yamilette. It could be me, but I think only one of the finalists attended the open casting call. I'm not sure whether that says that the participants that had the initiative and savvy to actually submit their own video online had something the others didn't, or because the script the others read in the casting call limited them and they didn't get a chance to share any of their personality.

Who did MC Don Dees vote for? Well first, I'm kind of anal about rules. No comments please. But the video for Leika and Adienid where over the 30 second limit. So we have to disqualify them. For me, I'm a sucker for authenticity. So for me, Iris has the most truthiness. It's a combination of things:

  • First, she was one of the first to upload her video
  • Second, she looks really nice in her pajamas
  • She's a teacher and is doing it to please her students
  • She's in her bedroom, probably in her parents house
  • Finally, the television in the background gives it a touch of reality, that I just couldn't ignore. Hey it was hard not to.
There are going to announce the winner of the search in a grand event on April 19th, from 2:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the Plaza del Caribe.
