SYTYCD Cristina Santana

Cristina Santana, 24: This Mexicana from San Diego, California describes herself as "creative, fun, strong and determined."
Why we think she can win: Cristina is a salsa dancer, but she has a secret talent too: She can also belly dance! Cristina is a sexy and vivacious with great stage presence and tons of energy—just check out her audition video.
Achilles Heel: Last year, she auditioned and made it to Vegas week, but didn’t make it into the top 20 (perhaps a sign that the judges aren't exactly in love with her). And despite the fact that she received raves for her performance last week, Cristina somehow ended up in the bottom three.

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
