Cedeno was seen hosting the 2001 Miss All American Latina Pageant through Estylo Entertainment. The pageant is the only national pageant exclusively for college women of Hispanic/Latin descent between the ages of 18-26. Cedeno hosts the show in Spanish and English. E! Entertainment has used Cedeno many times to host their E! Search parties. Cedeno taught himself Spanish and his command of the language opens him up to more of the Latino media markets. CNN Espanol completed an entire interview with Cedeno in Spanish
Born November 14, 1974, in Moses Lake, Washington, Cedeno, of Cuban and Irish/English descent, has always been active in sports and had an aspiring career towards pro-football when a debilitating knee injury abruptly put an end to that particular career direction. Renewed inspiration came when Cedeno was approached on his college campus by an acting and modeling manager. Before the school semester ended, he was off to Italy on a modeling assignment for Versace. Cedeno continued to juggle academics and a modeling career in Milan, Spain, New York and Los Angeles. One year after moving to Los Angeles, Cedeno landed a strong theatrical agent and studied with some of the industry's most respected acting coaches. He continues to remain physically active, enjoying sports such as boxing, soccer, baseball and skiing.
