‘Primer Impacto’ reporter chosen as one of People en Espanol’s Most Beautiful

 

Primer Impacto personality Tony Dandrades is so beautiful to ... People en Español. The Spanish language magazine has made its list, and the jovial Dominican made the cut. To celebrate the annual issue, Los 50 Más Bellos, Dandrades, along with other BPs like Ricky Martin, Rita Moreno, Génesis Rodríguez, Emilio Estefan and Miss Universe María Gabriela Isler, walked the red carpet at Capitale event space in NYC Monday night. We talked to the entertainment reporter, who is married to Miami.com writer Amy Reyes; they have two young kids.

How does it feel to be called out as one of the most Bellos?

I don’t really consider myself beautiful, though maybe for my wife and my mother I am a hunk! The word beauty is relative, you can be beautiful physically but be horrible on the inside. When it was announced that I would be on the list, a lot of comments on my Twitter account were that I shouldn’t be [included] because I am not beautiful. Regardless of whether I am or not, I’m in there, so I’ll go down in history as the ‘sort-of cute guy’ who made the list [laughs].

What’s your next big assignment?

I am headed to cover the World Cup in Brazil as one of the key reporters for Univision’s coverage. I am taking Portuguese classes, even though I can handle the language using Portuñol. I have a bunch of reports planned, but things always pop up. It will be a unique experience and a lot of work, but I’m excited. The only thing I’m not looking forward to is being away from my family.

What else do you do in your spare time?

I’ve been doing a little bit of acting. I appeared in a few movies in the Dominican Republic, Biodegrable, by director Juan Basanta; more recently I had a role in Lotoman 003, a comedy franchise that’s been a real hit. I have plans to be in two more upcoming films so I am working on my acting, but I’m not sure that I have been given roles because of my pretty face. Well, maybe.
