Melanie Iglesias

Melanie Iglesias is a true New Yorker. She was born in Brooklyn and has lived all over New York City. Her ethnicity fits well with the diversity of the city: she is a mix of Filipina, Spanish, Italian, Puerto Rican, and Brazilian.

Melanie was recently named a top ten finalist as New York’s representative in this year’s Maxim Hometown Hotties competition. She is also a member of the World Poker Tour’s Royal Flush Girls.

Besides being a model (represented by Prestigious Models), Melanie is also a singer/songwriter. Her latest composition “Take It Off” can be heard on her MySpace page or on her Youtube channel

Melanie is on Twitter @MelanieIglesias and has a Facebook fan page .

Disclaimer: I thought I ought to clarify that Melanie is one of many ladies featured on this website that, despite the name of the website, are not exactly half Asian. Some are more than half Asian, others such as Melanie are less (as per this description of her ethnicity that she posted on Twitter).

Melyssa Grace

Melyssa Grace

Melyssa Grace Roberts is probably best known for being named Miss Maxim Philippines in 2007, which is interesting because she is an American girl who was born in Oakland, CA, and who grew up in Hawaii before moving back to California for middle and high school. She is half-Filipina and half-German.

Melyssa is one of the Royal Flush Girls for the World Poker Tour. She is currently a model but she hopes one day to open a sushi restaurant.

Like Michelle Banzer, she is represented by Prestigious Models.

Melyssa is on Twitter @melyssagrace and is also on MySpace. She also has her own website. I wasn’t able to find a Facebook account for her, but the Prestigious Models page posts updates about her (in fact, it’s her face on the account).

UPDATE: I found Melyssa’s Facebook profile, and she now has a Facebook page as well.

Michelle Banzer

Michelle Stephanie Banzer was named Miss Kentucky USA in 2007. I remember seeing her in the Miss USA pageant that year and thinking the judges made a huge mistake by not advancing her past the preliminary stage. But then again I’m a bit biased. :)

She has also done quite a bit of modeling, sometimes using the stage name Michelle Zen, and she is currently a Royal Flush Girl for the World Poker Tour. She is represented by Prestigious Models.

Michelle’s mom is of Vietnamese, Chinese, Mongolian, and Russian descent, and her dad is German, Cherokee, and Irish. She can read, write, and speak Vietnamese and English fluently.

She is on Twitter @MichelleBanzer and is also on Facebook and MySpace.

Michelle Banzer – Vietnamese, Chinese, Mongolian, Russian, German, Cherokee, Irish
Melyssa Grace – Filipina, German
Jennifer Haley – Korean, Japanese, German, Irish, French, Scottish
Melanie Iglesias – Filipina, Spanish, Italian, Puerto Rican, Brazilian
Sunisa Kim – Thai, Cambodian
Katrina Topacio – Filipina, Spanish

Michelle Banzer

If you follow my Twitter feed @HalfAsians then you know that I am a big fan of the Plunder Media family of websites. They post galleries of hot girls of various ethnicities, but they seem to publish a disproportionately high number of mixed Asian girls. This week alone, they have posted galleries of Michelle Banzer (pictured above), Aline Nakashima, Melyssa Grace, and Jessica Gomes.

Follow them on Twitter @plunder to keep up with their latest posts.
