She had moved to the USA just three years before, hoping to make it in the industry, and first relocated to West New York, New Jersey.

Manuela then became one of the finalists during the 2008’s Nuestra Belleza Latina, a beauty contest airing on the US Spanish channel Univision.

It wasn’t long before she regularly began appearing on The Price is Right. When she recently went on holiday and was absent, fans were concerned.

Manuela’s career and family

While auditioning for modelling and TV jobs, Manuela came across a Model Search contest for The Price is Right during its 37th season.

Among hundreds of women, she was one of five lucky finalists to appear on-camera as a model for one episode of the game show.

Then, the winner was chosen by an internet fan vote and the opportunity to tape five additional episodes, with Manuela representing New York City.

Although she was not the winner of the contest, Manuela left a lasting impression on the show’s producers and was hired a few months later.

That’s when she became a regular model for the show as she replaced ex-model Brandi Sherwood-Cochran, who was reportedly dumped.

Manuela also appeared on CBS soap opera The Bold and The Beautiful (which tapes next door to Price) and motion picture Jack and Jill.

Now, she is married to Matthew Doherty, who she has a daughter with called Tilly – their first child together.
