Ever since Jenn Brown went mainstream and quit the ESPNU Road Trip job that thrusted her into stardom, we didn’t pay much attention to the fledgling ESPN product that has pretty much become a non-factor in our lives.
And then a BC tipster sent word that the chick ESPN hired to replace Ms. Brown was crazy hot.
Of course we went into research mode and somehow came up with the name Marianela Pereyra, an Argentinian-born 30-year-old who has made a living as a poker show hostess and VJ on Fuse TV.
In other words, this is make or break time for Marianela because working a college-based show on ESPN at 30 is probably a last chance to make it big in the sports world.
Did we mention Ms. Pereyra once posed in lingerie for FHM and Maxim?
From the Marianela Pereyra File:
â€¢ Graduated from University of Maryland
â€¢ Majored in Psychology & Romance Languages
â€¢ Worked 2007 World Series of Poker
â€¢ Parents were professional tango dancers
â€¢ Is the hot chick on NBC’s Poker After Dark
