VH1′s Viva Hollywood is set to have a surprise guest star, as the contestants compete to win a cash prize and title of “America’s Numero Uno Telenovela Star.”
For their first challenge, the contestants create print ads for various products with objects from La Casa. One of the contestants bares it all in order to make a statement, but the decision could turn out to be a mistake. Also, the contestants divide into teams to create a commercial for Mexico’s biggest soft drink, Jarritos. The soft drink has the tag line, “What the fruit?!”
In addition, Daisy Fuentes will be visiting the “La Casa De Locos.” She will be appearing in order to teach the cast about the sin of seduction. She will do this by teaching the contestants how to make themselves into a brand that people want to watch. Viva Hollywood airs on Sunday, May 18 at 10 PM ET/PT on VH1.

In the series, aspiring Latino and Latina telenovela stars will live in the “Casa De Locos.” The cast will be challenged to master the “7 Deadly Sins of Telenovelas.” The sins are passion, lust, charisma, drama, fire, seduction and scandal.
Actress and singer Maria Conchita Alonso and actor singer/song-writer Carlos Ponce serve as co-hosts for the series. Celebrity astrologer Walter Mercado also appears as a guide and assigns the challenges to the contestants.
There will also be several celebrity guest judges including Daisy Fuentes, Christian De La Fuentes, Angelica Vale, Charo, Lorena Rojas, Maria Celeste Arraras and Perez Hilton. The judges will help determine who stays and who goes every week. Contestants will learn their fate by watching their own telenovela death scenes.

What are the Seven Deadly Sins? Passion, lust, charisma, drama, fire, seduction and scandal. At least those are the “Seven Deadly Sins of Telenovelas” competitors in VH1′s newest reality show, “Viva Hollywood!”, will have to master each week to survive elimination.
That’s right, VH1 is looking for America’s “numero uno telenovela star.” 12 bilingual latino and latina hotties will move into the “Casa De Locos” (does that mean Crazy House? Or House of Crazies?) and compete head-to-head for the grand prize: a spot on a Telemundo show, representation from Latin World Entertainment, and a $100,000 cash prize.
But first they must satisfy the judges — Actress/singer Maria Conchita Alonzo and actor/singer/songwriter Carlos Ponce. If they don’t impress…they will discover their elimination by watching their own death scene.
Other celebrities to look for in this show are Latino Legend Walter Mercado (who will be guiding and advising the actors along the way), Daisy Fuentes, Perez Hilton, Lorena Rojas, and…Charo (insert shimmy and *gitchy*gitchy* here), among others.
“Viva Hollywood!” will premiere Spring 2008 on VH1.
