No. 25: Sara Carbonero – 100 Most Mind-Numbingly Hot Women of 2012
Sara’s a 28-year-old Spanish TV host for Telecinco and sports journalist.
During the 2010 FIFA World Cup it was alleged that Carbonero, reporting during the match between Spain and Switzerland, had distracted Casillas, causing the unexpected Swiss victory. The allegations were made in the English press, originally by Graham Keeley of The Times and later repeated by several other English newspapers, prompting the Madrid-based Spanish newspapers El Mundo, El País and the popular sports daily Marca to counter the claims.
Questions were also raised about her journalistic integrity after she undertook to interview her boyfriend Casillas after the match. As a result of the controversy Carbonero in Spain became “one of the most photographed people of the World Cup”.
In July 2009, Carbonero, was voted “The Sexiest Reporter in the World” by FHM USA. On March 14, 2012 the Spanish magazine Lecturas announced that Sara Carbonero was engaged to Iker Casillas. She appears to be a good luck charm as Spain currently leads Group C in the Euro 2012.
