Susie Castillo stars in "School Pride" on NBC as one of the experts who help communities completely transform their own schools.

Susie Castillo most recently starred in Tyler Perry's "House of Payne" in the recurring role of Mercedes Hernandez. She also recently completed the role of Linda in the indie film, "The Heartbreaker," and is shooting the sketch comedy pilot, "A Very Special Episode with Jai Rodriguez."

Susie made her feature film debut in Disney's live-action family flick, "Underdog," playing the role of News Reporter, "Diana Flores." She has also guest-starred on several TV shows, including, "My Wife and Kids" and "Half and Half."

In 2003, this Puerto Rican and Dominican beauty became the third Latina ever to win the Miss USA Pageant, prompting People en EspaƱol to name her one of the "25 Most Beautiful People" and launching her career in entertainment. With a strong presence and personality, Susie quickly emerged as one of television's most recognizable faces and was named to "Maxim's Hot 100" list in 2008.

Susie's first book, "Confidence is Queen: The Four Keys to Ultimate Beauty through Positive Thinking," was published by Penguin Group in 2008. In her book, which is aimed to inspire confidence in young girls, she uses her honesty and sense of humor to share her secrets to achieving goals and living out one's dreams.

Until departing in 2007 to pursue a full-time career in acting, Susie could be seen daily as host of MTV's "TRL" ("Total Request Live") where she interviewed the biggest names in entertainment. MTV quickly called upon her to host many other popular shows, including "Big Ten," "TRL's New Year's Eve," "The VMAs on Overdrive," "The Hills After Show," and numerous MTV "Real World Reunion" specials.

Susie's poise in front of the camera has led to many other high-profile hosting gigs, most recently co-hosting the NBC show, "Superstars of Dance," produced by Nigel Lythgoe and Simon Fuller, the powerhouse team behind "American Idol."

Always staying busy, Susie recently began co-hosting "Randy Jackson's Hit List," a nationally syndicated, top 30 radio show, with "American Idol's" own Randy Jackson. One of Neutrogena's Fresh Faces, she's also currently being featured in a national television campaign, joining fellow Neutrogena beauties Jennifer Garner, Emma Roberts, Vanessa Hudgens and Hayden Panettiere.

Susie resides in Los Angeles where she spends much of her spare time supporting her favorite organizations, such as I Am That Girl and St. Judes Children's Research Hospital. She also loves beach volleyball, snowboarding, golfing, and playing with her Chihuahua's, Lupe and Oscar.

Always the environmentalist (as a child she organized neighborhood clean-ups), Susie lives a "green" lifestyle, driving a hybrid car, recycling, eating locally-grown organic foods, conserving water and energy in her home, and using earth-friendly products for everything.
