Deal or No Deal Model Ursula Mayes

Gotta Love the Ladies

Okay, so if you've been following me as of late, you're probably wondering whether or not this "Ursula Mayes" is also Lao or Thai after having checked out Amy Chanthaphavong: Miss Asian America 2009, Alexandra Bounxouei: The Lao Princess of Pop, Kay Sivilay and Import Tuner Magazine Model. Unfortunately, the answer is no, as she is half Korean and half German/Native American (quite a mix if you ask me). I guess you could say that I'm expanding my horizons and for Pete's sake, just look at her! She is by far among the most beautiful women in the world. I mean, just ask People Magazine and they'll tell you the same, as she made their Top 100 in 2008. And if you are indeed an avid reader of Import Tuner magazine, then she's no stranger to you, as she is the official spokesmodel for their Hot Import Nights segment in addition to being Deal or No Deal's mainstay Suitcase #5 model. After having seen her in an article about Import Tuner's exclusive event, Hot Import Nights, I couldn't pass up learning more about her.

Bio of Ursula Mayes

Born on August 9th, 1979, at a military base in Seoul, South Korea, Ursula Yvonne Mayes traveled frequently as an army brat. Some of the many places she visited included Puerto Rico and North Carolina until she was finally able to settle with her family in the Washington, DC area where she would consequently spend the rest of her childhood. She would later move on to Fairfax, Virginia. Her mischievous nature could well be attributed to her having five brothers who influenced her in both positive and negative ways (for example, they taught her.how to hot-wire a car). On a positive note, she credits them for her interest in rock music, boxing, motor sports, and martial arts. Her early years saw her in and out of trouble and so so keep herself out of trouble, she would go to work for her aunt who as a photographer; Ursula assisted her by doing hair and make-up behind the camera. Her aunt, while Ursula worked alongside her at her studio, encouraged her begin modeling. Her exotic looks can be credited to her mother, who is Korean and her father who is German/Native American.

Well, I don't watch Deal or No Deal because of Howie (Sorry, Howie).

Deal or No Deal Makes a Deal with Ursula

While growing up, Ursula then garnered an interest in fashion, poetry, and make up, and in December of 2004, she was selected as a Maxim Hometown Hottie and would consequently finish third as a finalist. The break she was looking for to become a professional model had finally arrived.

What started out as a temporary role as the suitcase #5 model in Season One (2005-2006) of the world's most popular TV game show Deal or No Deal (Ursula substituted for Kristal Marshall) would turn out to be a permanent one for her. Until this day, Ursula remains model #5 on Deal or No Deal.

Ursula's looks range from conservative to downright sexy

In total, Ursula has contributed her modeling prowess to nearly 30 companies worldwide and the number continues to grow. In addition to this, she is also the spokesmodel for Hot Import Nights which is a automotive touring event that is sponsored by Import Tuner magazine. Ursula is also the face of EI Solutions Skincare and Cosmetics which she does commercials for that is currently airing in Japan and Korea. Please have a look:

Hey Dohn, she is pretty half Korean, half German, youve got a taste really, I like it when her hair is black, sometimes it appears brown? and the lips, oh those lips speaks volume,,,Thanks, Maita

dusanotes 6 years ago from Windermere, FL

Dohn, I think she looks very American. Of course, the majority of Americans have some German blood. She, of course, is beautiful, as all the others have been. You did a marvelous job of presentation, arranging the photos and only using the best photos - all of which makes this an outstanding Hub, a real winner. Congratulations. Don White

@Tatjana-Mihaela-Ha! Writing a hub about her is "almost paradise" :D Yes, yes, Google does approve of her ;) Only time will tell if she returns the love to me, lol. Thanks, Tatjana-Mihaela. I hope all is well with you!

@Tammy Lochmann-LOL. I actually am writing two more hubs on her due to the fact that I found a ton of info on her and a ton more pics. Her pictures of her when she was just starting her career were "smaller." You may have a point there. I'm pretty resourceful when it comes to finding things I guess! Thanks, Tammy!

@prettydarkhorse-She is very gorgeous and she probably wouldn't give me the time of the day, let alone the year, lol. But what from what I've read of her, she sounds like she's all aces. Maybe one day? I like here hair in anyway but bald :D Thank you Maita!

@dusanotes-You know, in some of her pictures, where she's wearing minimal make-up, she looks a lot like her mom, but in others, she looks a lot like her dad! In either case, she's a beauty. The mix of Asian and Americans is certainly a good one ;) Thanks, Don!

@Pamela99-Yeah, call it a vice. I'm a sucker for a pretty face ;) Maybe one day I will meet some. Already, I've met a few celebrities, like Ashante, Mandy Moore, David Bowie, and his wife Iman. Maybe one day, right? It's good to keep a dream! Thanks, Pamela.

@Pamela N Red-Wow, two Pamelas in a row! You must like the color red. Thanks for reading ;)

@jobister-Ha! Why would you get in trouble? ;) Thanks bro.

Wow, you certainly know how to write a crowd-pleasing hub. The pictures are gorgeous and I agree (as an Asian), she must have some work done. Shh...we won't tell. Still, she's quite the deal in the beauty department and you certainly know how to showcase pretty girls.

Looks like your year is already looking up. Enjoy the ride:)

Terrific pics, and are those artificial breasts or are they real? I wondered about that. Interesting bio. I wish her the best...and you.

They really are very good quality photos.

keira7 6 years ago

Hi my friend, sorry for the delay. I find her very pretty but in some photos she look even more pretty without too much makeup. I always thought that women, we look more beautiful with just a little of makeup. Or sometimes just a beautiful lipstik and we look irisistible.:)

Brilliant hub my friend.

I do agree with the hubber Dusanotes, about the presentation, arrangement photo ect. Dohn you always do top quality work. And yes, you are a real winner. Thanks for the info, my dear good friend.:) See you soon bro.:D

dohn121 6 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York Author

@ Paradise-Hmmm...I'll let you decide :D I will say that her early modeling pics weren't as "plentiful" but she did have a baby while modeling, so...

Thanks, Paradise! I wish you the very best as well! Happy New Year!

@Keira7-It's always good to hear from you, Keira7! You know how much your opinion means to me. I always try to do something new with all of my hubs, so to actually hear others take note is a true blessing. Thanks so much for stopping by. Ursula really is naturally beautiful and so doesn't need much make-up. I highly agree with both of you! Blessings to you and yours!

I am glad you like her dohn, she is cute. Honestly though the show is kind of boring to me, and waiting for them to open those cases drives me bonkers :).


dohn121 profile image

dohn121 6 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York Author

@TattoGuy-Thanks, Captain! Noel Edmonds? I'll have to look into that one. I still remember that show,"The Weakest Link" and at work, we used to accused each other of being the weakest link whenever one of us screws up! She's certainly a crowd pleaser :) Have a good weekend, El Capitaine!

@ Thanks, SweetiePie. Yeah, the anticipation of them opening up those cases drives me batty too, especially when they cut to a commercial (what the heck???). I don't think the show's boring ALL the time :D

You are indeed an avid fan of Ursula Mayes. You know a lot of things about her. Nice photos.

@TINA V-Thank you, Tina! Yes, you could certainly make a point about that. There are many pretty models out there, but some just really stand out to me as being one in a million in comparison. One of the things that I don like about the show is that it's simply pure luck, nothing more, just like roulette!

@prettydarkhorse-No comment! Sometimes, you just gotta make sacrifices, lol. Funny you should say that I should write more. I'm working on two more :) Have a wonderful day, darling!

Yes! Jeopardy's my favorite. Deal or No Deal is all about luck, much like roulette as it takes virtually no thinking or strategy. Thanks, SweetiePie.

Thank you again, stephensaldana! It did take a lot of time tracking down so many of her pics (and it wasn't easy either, as I had literally hundreds to work with, but chose only the best). About her ethnicity--she's a quarter German, a quarter Native American, and one-half Korean. Thank you for visiting!
