Nadine Velazquez

Biography: This stunning Latina started out as a model and commercial actress before landing a recurring rule on the daytime soap The Bold and the Beautiful in 2003. After a few bit parts on the big screen, the bilingual beauty got her breakout role as Catalina, a sweet but dippy motel maid on My Name Is Earl in 2005. The character was originally written to be a Russian, but the producers made her Latina after seeing Velazquez's audition. She stayed with the series throughout its entire four-year run, scoring a 2009 ALMA Award nomination for Best Actress in a Television Comedy. After the show ended, Velazquez continued to work on TV, landing guest spots on shows such as CSI:NY, and the FX fantasy-football series The League. She returned to her modeling roots for her own 2009 calendar, showcasing the assets that have often landed her on Maxim's Hot 100 list.
