Meet Tanya Ariel, an El Pasoan looking to win Maxim's Cover Girl Contest. Yes, you can vote now. All you have to do is CLICK HERE. Here's a little about Tanya in her own words:

I have been modeling for a year now and I became a model for Ragazza Bazaar Modeling Agency a few months ago. I work from home as a content writer for various businesses and I have a background in multimedia journalism, a side baking business called Off the Deck Goods with my fiancé and we have a two-year-old daughter. I have done background work with Rosario Dawson in Briarpatch and I have been published as a model, writer and photographer which has been an incredible and surreal experience. Most days, you can find me at home or walking with my daughter, painting like Bob Ross, running all over the city and working out while blasting bands like Tool, Chevelle, System of a Down and Slipknot.

Voting for the top 20 ends today at 9pm Mountain Time, and right now Tanya sits at 5th. But why be comfortable there? Let's vote her up to the number 1 spot.
