Orange, Connecticut’s Peggy Black, 52, was the big winner in "The Simpsons" create-your-own-character contest, and Latin lover Ricardo Bomba is her creation, reports the Associate Press.
Black’s character was chosen from over 25,000 entries. La Bomba, as the character will affectionately be known, speaks with a Spanish accent and is irrestible, Black said:: "He’s someone that all the women love and all the men want to be."
As Fox describes La Bomba, he’s "a handsome, smooth-talking South American [who] works at the town’s nuclear power plant by day and ‘by night, works Springfield’s singles scene’ "
The Ricardo Bomba character makes his debut in the Jan. 31 episode on Fox.
