Dorismar (born Dora Noemí Kerchen on March 14, 1975 in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a Argentinean model, actress, television hostess, and singer.[1]

Acting career[edit]

Dorismar has worked as an actress in Argentina and in Miami. She appeared on the cover of Playboy, representing The Sexy Ladies of Latin TV, in March 2003. In August 2004 she also appeared on the cover of Open Your Eyes.[2] She was a hostess on the Univisión Network television show Caliente from 2000 to 2006.[3] Currently, she stars in Televisa's sketch comedy series Desmadruga2. Dorismar is also in Televisa's Mexican telenovela Triunfo Del Amor which is a remake of the telenovela Privilegio De Amar (1998).

Environmental work[edit]

In 2005, Dorismar posed for provocative posters distributed in Mexico aimed at protecting endangered sea turtle eggs from being harvested by people who believe they are a source of virility, proclaiming "My man does not need turtle eggs because he knows that they don't make him more potent," and "Sea turtle eggs DO NOT increase sexual potency!" These advertisements drew some derision from women's rights groups, and several environmental groups refused to be associated with the campaign.[4][5]

Deportation[edit]

On January 5, 2006, Dorismar and her husband/manager Alejandro (Alex) Schiff were deported from the United States to Argentina as illegal aliens after living six years in Miami.[6][7] Dorismar contested the deportation, claiming that her physical attributes place her in the category of "alien of extraordinary ability", which would allow her to seek an O-1 visa, permitting her residency in the U.S. based on her talents. She was unsuccessful in her petition.[6][7]
