Things you didn't know about Yanet Garcia

Yanet Garcia is Mexico's newest, and perhaps most desirable, leading lady since Salma Hayek stormed Hollywood over 20 years ago. At age 26, this Televisa Monterrey weather girl has put Mexico back on the map by forecasting temperatures in eye-popping tight mini dresses. Her unique spin, on a rather mundane part of the evening news, has earned her millions of fans and social-media followers from around the world. Before getting the latest weather report from Garcia, read up on these little-known facts about the famous meteorologist and her private life. There's a 100 percent chance you'll fall in love with her too.

She's a gym rat

To say Garcia is serious about fitness would be an understatement. The Mexican beauty's Instagram account is littered with images of her squatting, lifting weights, running and more.

For Garcia, fitness isn't just about keeping a tight body; it's a way of life. She's well aware that her money-maker is her body and will do any and everything to keep it in tip-top shape. And she doesn't mind flaunting that hard work either. Fans and body-obsessed men can find images of her posing from behind to proudly show off her butt and other bikini snaps.

With that said, her social media numbers are steadily climbing with a dedicated and growing fan base. She boasts 3.5 million followers on Instagram and another 454,000 followers on Twitter.

She's madly in love

When Garcia isn't busy forecasting the weather, she can be found spending quality time with her boyfriend Doug Censor Martin. The lovebirds met on Twitter, according to Before They Were Famous. Like Garcia, Martin is easy on the eyes and into fitness. He spends much of his time in the gym and according to his Instagram feed, he's a "gymshark" with the abs to prove it. After all, it's only fitting that someone so beautiful, such as Garcia, dates a guy who is equally good looking.

But Martin, 22, is more than a pretty boy with an amazing set of pectoral muscles. According to Fox Sports, he's a professional Call of Duty player and a member of the gaming team FaZe Clan. But video games won't be his only focus forever. "What I'd love to do, you know 10 years from now, is to be something like The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) … an entertainer, a motivator," Martin told Fox Sports in 2014. "He started with wrestling, and that's how he got into motivation and fitness and movies. I feel like my outlet to that level of success will be through gaming."

Once gaming is behind Martin, he'll more than likely start a family. Pinned to the very top of his Twitter account is an image of a nice-size house with a three-car garage. The caption reads, "I'm buying this house within 2 years and installing a fountain on the front lawn then I'm going to have a family and be a dope Dad." It's certainly clear Garcia picked an ambitious man for herself.

She's a dog lover

Garcia doesn't have any children, but she sure does love her pooches. The weather girl is almost never without her crew of Pomeranians, whom she dotes on every chance she gets.

In one Twitter snap, Garcia is seen lying in a hot pink bed surrounded by four Pomeranians and dog toys. She captioned the loving image, "I am the happiest!"

She's also so enamored with her pups that she created an Instagram account for one of them. Little Mimi Faze made her social media debut about two and a half months ago. Since then, this adorable pooch has captured the imagination of everyone, including Garcia's boyfriend. The two have become quite the pair on social media.

She denies butt implants

Garcia was the target of dozens of not so-friendly headlines in the spring of 2016. Numerous viewers accused the weather girl of getting plastic surgery to make her butt appear bigger and protrude out more than normal.

Odd video and image stills of Garcia delivering the weather in a tight black dress began circulating causing the rumor mill to overflow. According to the Mirror's translation, however, Garcia chalked it all up to camera angles. Garcia also maintains she's natural and owes her enviable body to working out.

In response to the drama, Garcia tweeted photos of her doing squats and other butt exercises with the caption, "haha, please, exercise and live healthy to see the results."

Her fans are obsessed

While Garcia's fame continues to skyrocket around the globe, small fan sites dedicated to her life have begun to pop up across the internet.

Case and example, IamYanetGarcia.net. It's a small developing site that gives broad information about the beauty. Although it's hard to verify if any of the information is accurate, it just shows her star power is far reaching.

There's also a Twitter page that keeps followers abreast of her every post and movement called, Yanet Garcia Fans. Similar fan pages have also popped up on Facebook.

In a few months or a year's time, those platforms could become larger than life.

Her English is rusty

There may be a language barrier when it comes to watching Garcia's now famous forecasts, but few would argue what she says even matters.

TMZ proved that point when they caught up with Garcia in New York City's Central Park working out in July 2015. Although she needed a translator to answer many of the cameraman's questions, all eyes were fixed on her every move.

When asked if she catches more Mexicans or Americans drooling over her butt, she laughed saying (translated of course) "Everybody!" She also hinted that the attention doesn't bother her all that much, either.

But when it comes down to comparing famous backsides with each other, a cameraman asked whose butt is better between Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj. Garcia, learning quickly to be diplomatic, said she thinks every woman is beautiful in their own way.

She didn't want to be a weather girl

Believe it or not, Garcia almost never made it television. She nearly passed over the job at Televisa Monterrey. In a rare interview, Garcia told El Pais she needed to think it over before saying yes. "My first reaction was to say no, because I had never done it and I did not know if I could," she told the publication.

"But I think life is about the people who try it and I thought it was an experience that I could learn a lot from, and I wanted to try it," she added. From there, the rest is history! Garcia became an overnight sensation not for delivering extremely accurate weather forecasts, but for being so steamy she needs her own rain showers. It's now safe to say, the weather portion of the news may be the network's most popular.

She owns a modeling agency

While Garcia's beauty earned her a bit of fame in the last year, she's constantly looking to impart wisdom on other young girls. Garcia has, in fact, created a modeling company called Yanet Garcia Models. Talent under her tutelage ranges from young kids, at least five to six years old, to women in their twenties, possibly thirties. Everyone gets lessons on runway and print modeling as well as pageant training.

Although there is no official website, Garcia has set up a Facebook page and Twitter account bearing the agency's name. The former is sprinkled with photos of models getting lessons, doing photo shoots, exercising and even learning proper etiquette and manners. She even gave them an opportunity to shine on her station, Televisa Monterrey. Garcia certainly wants her women to be of style and grace.

Garcia opened up about her agency to Mexico's Publimetro, telling the publication she created the business to help women. "I am a walkway coach and I am focused on my projects," she said loosely translated. "I want to expand my modeling agency and continue to grow, but I'm also open to the possibility of new opportunities, of course."

Her future looks bright

Will anyone ever look at the weather the same again? Garcia has proven to be an interesting and complex woman with the business savvy that will surely take her to greater heights in 2017. She's simply got it all working for her—a great job that brings her mountains of attention, a sexy boyfriend who adores her, a budding sense of entrepreneurship with her own modeling agency and more. If she ever lands a job doing the weather in the United States, other plump-backside divas like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, will have stiff competition for the spotlight.
