Raissa Santana won Miss Brazil 2016, and she will represent her country at the Miss Universe 2016 pageant on Monday, January 30. The 21-year-old model is from Itaberaba, Bahia, Brazil, and she is way more than just a pretty face, as she graduated college with a degree in Marketing.

Brazil has previously brought home the Miss Universe crown twice, but they haven’t been victorious in quite some time. Their two wins took place in 1963 and 1968, giving Raissa the opportunity to bust a very long slump. Raissa has already broken one type of drought for Brazil, as she will be the first black woman to represent her country since 1986.

History might not be on her side, but the folks at Sportsbook still think that she is an extremely dangerous contestant. Not counting the option of betting the field (+150), Raissa’s current odds of +750 make her the third biggest favorite at the pageant.

Now that you know a little bit about Raissa, scroll through her hottest photos in the gallery below. She sure as hell looks like a contender to me.
