It's that time again...Worldwide Wednesday, where we celebrate the most beautiful women in the world. For those of you that don't get out much, it's now December, and that means brick weather for most of the U.S. Of course it also means the drop of our December/January issue, and our brickhouse cover girl, Zoe Saldana.

In honor of Zoe's incredible cover shoot, we're devoting this week's Worldwide Wednesday to the Dominican Republic, a country of 10 million people, at least half of whom are seemingly either hot women or shortstops (but, alas, not both—at least yet). Zoe was born in the U.S. (New Jerz!), but she's half Dominican, and spent much of her childhood in the D.R., so you know she qualifies for our list of the 9 Hottest Dominican Women...
