“Unfortunately, we often do get labeled as objects. It’s sad, it’s unfortunate that we get labeled that way. But we can show the opposite… that we’re they’re because we know what we’re doing.”

But added that no one wants to watch ugly people on TV.

“Obviously, in front of the camera, you need to be attractive. Because people will – well, as a viewer, if I see someone ugly, I’ll change [the channel]. What’s the point of watching someone ugly on TV?”

Televisa Monterrey Meteorologist Mauro Morales says it’s all about advertising dollars.

“The weather report is the section that sells the most [advertising] in the news broadcast. If the sponsor has a beautiful woman during the section [when they’re advertising their product], obviously, the impact of their product will be stronger.”

Yanet Garcia sees herself as a role model.

“People make a living from their looks. These days, it’s very important. Also, we’re women who are seen as an inspiration.”

When asked if she could see herself working the same job in 10 years, Gabriela Lozoya was candid:

“Yes, I see myself working the same job. I don’t know if my body will hold up to keep doing it, but in my mind, yes.”

Mauro Morales said they’re just reflecting the machismo of Mexican society.

“I think it’s a part of Mexican culture… and you can’t swim against the current.”
