LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Francisca Lachapel has won Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015. She was named the winner of Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015 on Univision en vivo tonight April 12, 2015. The NBL Gran Final just concluded. And after a nearly two hour telecast, a Nuestra Belleza Latina ganadora has been revealed. Clarissa Molina got fourth place, after being eliminated early in the show. Then Catherine Castro was eliminated, getting third place. But the Nuestra Belleza Latina winner is Francisca Lachapel!
The Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015 ganadora survived one of the hardest seasons in recent memories. Tonight’s telecast featured appearances by Prince Royce, Espinoza Paz and Ricky Martin. The show started with four finalists. They were Nathalia Casco, 28 form Honduras; Clarissa Molina, 22 from the Dominican Republic; Francisca Lachapel, 25 form the Dominican Republic; and Catherine Castro, 23 from Puerto Rico. But when Clarissa Molina was announced eliminated, the director cut to the remaining contestants. And they all looked shocked that Molina got only fourth. Then another surprise was delivered when social media favorite Catherine Castro was given third.
Tonight winner gets $200,000 in cash, a 2015 Kia Soul. She will also join the TV show Sabado Gigante as its new host. And she will serve as a correspondent for the awards show called Premios Juventud 2015. The season featured several changes. Producers moved the show up to an earlier winter start in January. And they ended the telecast sooner with only four finalists, the least in nine years of the show. For more about this season, click HERE. And for a video about this season, see below.
