She won the Miss Colombia title in 1993 representing Bogotá D. C. She was crowned at the age of 18 years old, having graduated from Colegio Nueva Granada.[1]

Miss UniverseEdit

She entered the Miss Universe 1994 pageant where she placed 1st Runner-up; Carolina Gómez was the third Colombian to win 1st Runner-up in a row at a Miss Universe competition, after Paola Turbay in 1992 and Paula Andrea Betancur in 1993.


After her reign, Gómez went into modeling, achieving success on runways in Italy and Miami. She was the host of "Stars", a television show where many artists and celebrities were interviewed; afterwards, she was the successor to Jaime Garzón in the show "Locos Videos". She was also a TV Producer, as such, she was co-chair of Vista Productions Inc. In 2004, she made her acting debut in a soap opera, "El Auténtico Rodrigo Leal", telecasted by Caracol Channel (in Colombia), where she had the role of the host of a TV Reality Program with the Argentinian actor Martín Karpan. Her acting in this role received excellent reviews, which led to her role as protagonist in "La Viuda de la Mafía", another soap opera which aired in 2006 in RCN Channel (another Colombian Channel). Between 2007 and 2010 she worked in different TV series such as Mujeres Asesinas, Sin Retorno, Tiempo Final and Karabudjan. The latter was a 6-hour miniseries for Antena 3 in Spain. Currently, she played Alicia Duran in A corazón abierto, the Colombian adaptation of Grey's Anatomy.

She has also starred in several films, including director Felipe Martínez Amador's feature film Bluff, with Catalina Aristizábal, Víctor Mallarino, and Luis Eduardo Arango, amongst others. The film, which premiered in March 2007, had very good reviews and very high box office revenues in Colombia. In 2010, she traveled to Los Angeles to co-star in the film The Chosen One along with comedian Rob Schneider (who also wrote and directed the movie). Her successful career led her to work in Federal [pt], a Brazilian action film with Michael Madsen, Saluda al diablo de mi parte along with Edgar Ramírez, and most recently: El paseo, a family road trip comedy shot in the Colombian countryside.[2]
