Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentDayana Mendoza Bio – Smartasses Magazine Dayana Sabrina Mendoza Moncada (born June 1, 1986) is a model and beauty pageant titleholder who won the titles of Miss Venezuela 2007 and Miss Universe 2008. She was born in Caracas, Venezuela on June 1, 1986. Mendoza speaks Spanish, English and Italian.

In 2001, Mendoza signed with Elite Model Management and was a finalist at the Elite Model Look International 2001, in Nice, France. She has modeled in New York, Italy, Germany, France, Athens and Spain. After Elite, she signed to Trump Model Management and Names Model Agency. Mendoza beat 27 other candidates to win Miss Venezuela 2007 on September 13, 2007, and became only the second woman representing the Amazonas state to win. She was crowned Miss Universe 2008 on July 13, 2008. In doing so, she became the first winner of the pageant from Venezuela since Miss Universe 1996’s winner Alicia Machado, best known as the subject of debate from the 2016 Clinton vs Trump American Presidential election. Miss Universe 2007 Riyo Mori crowned Mendoza with a tiara worth $120,000 USD. Her prize package included cash, world travel, a rent-free, prestigious New York City flat, luxury apartment, a $100,000 stipend for a 2-year course at the New York Film Academy, free access to famous fashion houses and beauty parlors, and a gift bag stuffed with designer shoes, dresses and beauty products. Mendoza spent her year-long reign as Miss Universe traveling the world to lecture on humanitarian issues and to promote education regarding HIV/AIDS. On June 3, 2012, Mendoza served as one of the panel of judges for the Miss USA 2012 competition.

Mendoza was a contestant on the 2012 season of Celebrity Apprentice. In Episode 3, she was the winning project manager of her team on a task to create two themed living window displays for Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessory line, winning $20,000 for her charity, the Latino Commission on AIDS. She came in sixth place after being eliminated in the 12th episode.

Mendoza was once kidnapped in Venezuela, and stated the trauma taught her to remain poised under pressure. On March 27, 2009, Mendoza documented a visit to Guantanamo Bay detention camp on her Internet blog. In it, she was quoted as saying “[Guantanamo] was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful”. In her home country of Venezuela, the issue became controversial, with the president Hugo Chávez, reconsidering the praise he had previously given her. On April 1, 2009, the entry vanished from her blog.

Why we think she’s hot:

As we are all painfully aware of by now, the much maligned Donald Trump, owner of Miss Universe, sure does love his women of pageantry. We do too, just not to the point where we want to walk in their locker room’s unannounced. Be that as it may, for Dayana Mendoza, Miss Universe 2008, most can rightfully assume it was her contract with Trump Model Management that tells you precisely why The Donald cast her on his 2012 version of Celebrity Apprentice. Though she may not know much about Guantanamo Bay, we do however respect that she’s a gal who rose from the ashes of once being kidnapped, to at least attempting to become a role model for so many young Venezuelan girls. So, while we may not agree with too many things Mr Trump stands for, we are personally glad he put Miss Mendoza’s unique blend of leggy-supermodel-ness, fighting spirit, and girl-next-door approachability into the public eye for a little bit longer.
