From playing the fashionista best friend in “Eve” to staring as the “Dorito Queen”, former beauty pageant winner, Ali Landry is truly a treat to talk too. Ali recalls how last year was the ten-year anniversary for the contest and admires them for giving filmmakers a chance to “break into this business with a great cash prize”. Ali says that this cause is huge for a young filmmaker and she really admires Doritos for the platform.
Host: Hey Ali! You are gorgeous tonight, thank you so much for being here. Can you just give a quick shout out to my friend, Travis Mendel? He was this year’s winner for Dorito Spec commercial and he’s apart of the Christian community as well.
Ali: Travis Mendel, I just wanna say much congratulations to you for your Doritos commercial spec, that is absolutely wonderful. Keep at it, you have to take the bull by it’s horns, create your own projects and you know – very inspiring, congratulations.
Host: Thank you so much and did you check him out? He was the cowboy kid.
Ali: I didn’t see them this year…
Host: How does it feel to be known as the Dorito queen who kicks off that legacy. Have you seen how it’s blown up like crazy?
Ali: No, it’s crazy. Well, last year it was our ten-year anniversary maybe? So I got to go back and introduce all the finalists and I love that it’s giving these filmmakers such a chance to break into this business with a great cash prize. That’s so huge for a young filmmaker… so I really admire Doritos for doing that.
Host: And we’re glad for Travis, one of our brother’s in Christ. So he got a chance to win and hopefully it’ll lead him to a great success as well. Thank you Ali.
