IMTA's Eva Longoria is Heineken Spokesmodel!

Eva Longoria, who competed at IMTA in 1998, is now the new famous face promoting Heineken Light Beer! She appears in a new ad for the beer giant where she is in the audience at a Spur's basketball game. This funny ad shows her comedic timing and delivery which works so well for her portrayal of Gabby Solis on Desperate Housewives!

When Eva competed at IMTA in 1998, she had 38 agents and managers interested in representing her! She signed with a manager she had met at the convention. Eva told Pageantry Magazine that, “The first day they signed me I had four auditions...It was pretty fast.” She quickly moved to Los Angeles and landed guest-starring roles on Beverly Hills 90210, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless. In 2003, she took a role as a detective in a TV remake of LA Dragnet and made her big-screen film debut in Carlita’s Secret, and also starred in the films Harsh Times, and The Sentinel. Eva's is most well-known as the beautiful Gabrielle Solis on the award-winning Desperate Housewives on ABC.
