That rascally thorn in America's side is at it again'Hugo Chavez has just won the right to run for re-election indefinitely as president of Venezuela. Forever, ever! The news out of Caracas was greeted by "Oh, shit" by U.S. politicians'save for Mikey Bloomberg, who said "Oh, yeah!"'but no matter who's prez in VZ, we're confident of one thing: The country has some beautiful, beautiful women. It's no coincidence that Venezuela is the home of the most Miss World titles and current Miss Universe.
With so many pageant winners and telenova starlets to choose from, it was difficult to narrow the field down to nine...but hey, that's why we get paid the big bucks. On that note, we present the 9 hottest women of Venezuela...
#9. SONIA VERA
CLAIM TO FAME: She's on Deal Or No Deal. Yo, how many DOND suitcase chicks you think Howie Mandel has smashed? Hopefully not you, Sonia.
#8. PATRICIA VELASQUEZ
CLAIM TO FAME: The former SI swimsuit model is the only actor in our list that's appeared in something you've probably seen. She was recently on The L Word and is reportedly a bisexual...but no kissy-kissy clips on YouTube? Fucking un-American, that's what that is.

#7. ELECTRA AND ELISE AVELLAN
CLAIM TO FAME: The nieces of Robert Rodriguez debuted in Grindhouse, then appeared in Maxim. MTV gave a whole series to two mediocre-looking white twins, so...stick with it, Avellan sisters! Girl power!
#6. NORKYS BATISTA
CLAIM TO FAME: The former Miss Venezuela runner-up and current actress could care less if two balls land on her. Look at her, fearless!
#5. AINETT STEPHENS
CLAIM TO FAME: Caracas-born model moved to Italy to become a famous TV presenter. In the pic above she's actually praying for the breasts of other women: "Please make them as succulent as mine." See, she's a saint, too.
#4. DAYANA MENDOZA
CLAIM TO FAME: The current Miss Universe, who holds the crown even after (artfully) nude photos of her leaked. They're so artful that we didn't even bother posting them here. Damn you, art.
#3. GABY ESPINO
CLAIM TO FAME: And you wonder why we watch Telemundo?
#2. AIDA YESPICA
CLAIM TO FAME: Pageant-winning model/reality-TV star who famously dated Italian footballer Pippo Inzaghi. We heard the couple's pet phrase for anal was "running offsides."
