You’ve got to hand it to Maxim, they have incredibly good taste. The famous men’s mag released their annual “Hot 100” list this week and it’s loaded with Latinas. 17 to be exact, all of whom get the Blogamole stamp of approval!
The highest ranking Tr3s fave was actually not that surprising. Selena Gomez, who seems to be everywhere these days, came in at #2, ranking slightly behind Maxim’s top contender, Miley Cyrus.
Maxim made no qualms about bestowing the runner-up title to the former Disney Channel diva, calling Selena a “beautiful star.” They also heavily referenced her sexy new movie, "Spring Breakers."
Next up was Jessica Alba, who earned #17 on the list (not bad for a 30-something mother of two). Mexican-American Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste came right behind Alba, laying claim to the #18 slot. And judging by the half-naked glamour shot Maxim posted, she deserved the honor.
Following Arianny was Demi Lovato, who came in at #26. The mag chose a slightly older shot of Demi for their gallery, minus the new platinum lochs. Following her was Tr3s fave Sarah Shahi, who ranked #33 on the list.
Summer blockbuster stars Zoe Saldana and Jordana Brewster popped up shortly thereafter, earning #38 and #43 respectively. #45 went to Glee’s Naya Rivera, who certainly proved her “Hotness” with a recent bare naked Allure shoot.
“Hot List” mainstay Sofia Vergara earned a respectable #49 this year, right between Nina Dobrev and Lake Bell. Shakira came in at #53, highlighted with some sexy pre-baby shots.
Behind Shaki was the one-and-only Eva Mendes. In what almost seems unfair, the stunning Cuban-American beauty came in at #57 (we would have put her in the Top 20 for sure). Cameron Diaz wasn’t too far behind that, earning the #62 slot.
Up-and-comer Natalie Martinez made her first appearance on a Maxim list at slot #75. Tr3s fans will definitely recognize her work in sizzling music videos like Pitbull’s “Rain Over Me.”
After Natalie was one of the only comediennes to make the list, Park & Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza, who scored #85. Following Aubrey was newly christened Entertainment Tonight reporter Rocsi Diaz, who earned slot #86.
And as for the final two? Those would be another set of Latinas to keep your eye on. #92 Kendi Perez is a MMA Girl and hostess on the Fuel TV network. And #97 Daniella Alonso has been turning heads on shows like Covert Affairs and Revolution (not to mention a few PETA ads).
