MTV Tr3s is Looking for a VJ for a Day

VISTAKON, Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. and makers of ACUVUE Brand Contact Lenses, has joined forces with MTV Tr3s and "Mi TRL," the Latino version of MTV's popular daily video countdown show "TRL," to give one lucky fan a true "momento inolvidable" to appear as a guest VJ with Carlos Santos.

Latino fans across the United States can log onto www.mtvtr3s.com and look for the "ACUVUE/Mi TRL" contest link between February 26 and March 18 to enter.

Contestants should showcase their unique appeal in English or Spanish by answering several short questions about why they would make a great guest VJ and why it would be a "momento inolvidable" in their life. Additional questions include which celebrity they would cast in a movie of their life and why, how their best friend would describe them, what's their ultimate "Mi TRL" guest list and what does MTV Tr3s mean to them. The questions are meant to help better understand their personality and what unique qualities they could bring to live national television.

MTV Tr3s will hold a behind-the-scenes casting call where one lucky winner will be chosen to be a guest VJ on "Mi TRL" during the week of May 14. See official rules at www.mtvtr3s.com. No purchase is necessary to enter or win.

"Fans know that "Mi TRL" brings to life the best of Latino music and culture," said popular MTV Tr3s VJ Carlos Santos. "When entering, contestants should think about what makes MTV Tr3s unique, its flavor and style, as we'll be looking for someone who can connect with viewers to truly make their experience a momento inolvidable."

Carlos was born and raised in Puerto Rico against the background of the emerging sound of reggaeton. His passion for music was developed as he listened to a wide mix of Latino and American music on radio and on MTV as he was growing up. When he later moved to California, he became enthralled with the Rock en Espa??ol movement and the Indie scene of Los Angeles. In addition, Carlos is a talented actor, TV host and comedian. As an MTV Tr3s VJ, Carlos is living his "momento inolvidable."
