Who is Manuela Arbeláez?

Though she didn't win the contest, Manuela made an impression on The Price Is Right's producers, who hired her to model for the series in 2009. Manuela has been at the game show ever since, and also got to test her acting chops in a 2010 guest appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Fans of pop music might recognize the Colombian beauty as well. She's appeared in Robin Thicke's music video for "It's in the Mornin'" as well as in Dirty Money's music video with Diddy (featuring Drake), "Loving You No More."
