A wise man named Will Smith once described the women of Miami thusly: “half-dressed, fully equipped / hot mommies screamin’, ‘Ay, papi.’ ” Sounded good to us, so we chose the land of clubs and Cuban sandwiches for the next stop on Maxim’s Beautify America tour. Dozens of bikini-clad hotties lined up for our casting call, and, as you can see, the sun wasn’t the only thing blazing that day. “Ay, papi,” indeed.

Congrats! How did you find out about today’s casting call?
I was moving all my stuff into my new place when I heard about the shoot. I was so tired!


Well, you look great!
The casting was on the beach, so I just took a nap in my bikini while I was waiting for my turn. Then they woke me up and took the picture. So I even managed to get in a little tanning.


Were there guys checking you out during the shoot?
Yeah, but it’s fun. It doesn’t bother me that they’re curious.


You’re originally from Brazil. What brought you to Miami?
My hometown, Belo Horizonte, is very conservative. I was the only crazy one there. That’s why I’m in Miami!


What do you love most about the city?
There is a superficial party side, but I love just walking around South Beach, going to the cinema, and getting some sun. I’ve been all over the world, and I still say to myself, Where can you go that life gets as good as this?

The severe scalp burn was totally worth it.
