She’s tall, beautiful and has been winning beauty pageants for years, including Queen of the World in Germany, Miss Renella, Queen of the Fae, Sovereign of Duran, Miss Ecuador and now Top 10 Miss Tourist2Townie 2011-12. Domenica Saporiti – Domenica was also born in Guayaquil, won Miss Ecuador 2008 and has went on to become a TV presenter. I guess Miss Ecuador and Miss World Ecuador are two different things? She has since left CNN and presented the news for ‘Televistazo’ before joining Alfredo Pinoargote on ‘Direct Contact’ in Ecuador. Like Maria Rivadeneira, Estefani tops the list because her beauty is matched by her ambition and intelligence. Her first moment in the spotlight was on the Colombian version of X Factor and has since gone on to act in Colombian telenovelos (soap operas), 2.Dayallana Passailaigue – Long name, amazing results.I ask locals who their favorite celebrities are and their ranking opinion.For this list I received “insight” from our cooks at the Monkey Rescue Center, computer technicians at the Mac store, Ecuadorian friends in Quito, Baños and Cuenca and even a few bartenders, waitresses and hostel workers along the way.
Dayallana lives in Quito and is known as an accomplished athlete, model and popular host on Ecuadorian TV, Ecuavisa and “Asi Somos”.She was the first Ecuadorian women to compete in the Iron Man race and in college she studied engineering specializing in commercial marketing. Maria Susana Rivadeneira – Born in Quito on September 8, 1979, Maria Rivadeneira is a former miss Ecuador and Top 10 finalist at Miss Universe 2004.After a month and a half in Ecuador it’s time to head south to Peru, but I wouldn’t feel right about leaving without giving you the other side of Ecuadorian beauty, beyond the country’s incredible landscape, culture and cuisine.The “Hottest People” posts have become one of my favorite features on the T2T site, not only because of the obvious benefit I get from “researching” pop culture, but because of how the lists are created.
While Ecuadorian women didn’t provide the same neck-whipping-double-takes on the streets as often as the ladies of Colombia and Argentina, there were a few diamonds in the rough that could hang with anyone.
Findings: Guayaquil produces the hottest women and they all seem to have been Miss Ecuador at some point and they all have nicknames (leave a comment if you actually read this part).
