Melanie Iglesias, one of the World Poker Tour Royal Flush Girls, took down Maxim Magazine's national model search for the 2010 "Hometown Hotties" competition. Thousands of contestants were in the running but Melanie slid right into the top 10 - she is beautiful - but that's not the only reason she was the top vote getter when the smoke cleared at the Maxim Magazine judging table. She was crowned Maxim's Hometown Hottie 2010.
Melanie had this to say about it. “I was so excited and shocked when Maxim called to tell me. What an amazing honor!” said Melanie. “First, I get picked to be a Royal Flush Girl, then I’m fortunate enough to win this great contest – it’s been an unbelievable year.”
And WPT CEO Steve Heller wasn't surprised at all: “It’s no surprise Melanie won,” said WPT CEO Steve Heller. “She has grace, beauty, smarts, wit and ambition. She’s the total package. We’re thrilled for what this victory will mean for her career and how it will elevate even more the tremendous impact of the Royal Flush Girls as brand ambassadors for the World Poker Tour.”
Look for Melanie in an upcoming issue of Maxim and a new pictorial will soon appear on the website. You can follow Melanie on Twitter@MelanieIglesias and visit the worldpokertour.com for more photos and the opportunity to feast your eyes on all of the Royal Flush Girls.
