Vote for XXL‘s 2009 Eye Candy of the Year

Photography by Ellen Stagg

For the first time ever the competition for XXL’s our annual Eye Candy of the Year honors was so intense that we wound up with co-winners. In one corner, we have the lovely Dominican dime piece Rosa Acosta (Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” and “Forever”) and in the other we have Cuban cutie Tammy Torres (Fabolous’ “Everything, Everyday, Everywhere” and Birdman’s “Money to Blow”).

As much as we enjoy doubling our pleasure, XXL is turning to you, the readers, to help break this tie. From now until December 18th you can vote each and every day on which video vixen you think should walk away with the undisputed title of being the 2009 Eye Candy of the Year.

To help aid in your decision making process, we’ve included exclusive photo galleries (above and below) of Rosa’s and Tammy’s photo shoot from our December/January double issue (on stands December 1), as well as outtakes from their respective Eye Candy shoots from earlier in the year. Don’t say we never gave you anything—now vote and drool.

  • Worley

    Negro please. I’m not voting for either one of those broads. Ajia (July 2009) and Ms. Cat (August 2009) got both of those chicks whipped. My vote is for Ms. Cat with Ajia pulling a close second.

  • http://www.justice.gov.za GO-Getta’

    2 of pitbull’s latest music videos were hot..the music not so but the vixens had that “whoa” factor.

  • Flashy p

  • http://google marcellus kelley

    I’m so glad you can’t buy class!Besides,I prefer a gal who thinks she is pretty only sometimes!

  • Amymarie

    come on butta face tammy! stop leaving comments about ur self on these blogs! You know dam well your far from cute let alone xxl eyecandy of the year!I can see why rosa acosta would get nom but what did tammy do this year to get that spot??? mrs.officer was okay since the song was hot but where else do you see this ugly ass girl? lol this has to be the biggest joke xxl has truly killed the meaning of eye candy with this one! like giving tammy a month wasnt bad enough

  • http://www.this50.com SeanP

    All I wanna know is has anyone seen tammys pics before she got her ass and breast done? who ever picked her to stand next to rosa for eyecandy should really be ashamed! rosa isnt the best out of year but has made her self known. Not to mention you do see her in the videos and in more then one. Her pics dont make your head hurt from looking at them. try pulling up tammys before and after surgery pics. POOR GIRL! HER FACE IS’NT THE WORST IVE SEEN BUT SO CLOSE TO IT!

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Thanks Jack Tripper for cosigning my sentiments!!

    • Jack Tripper

      “Thanks Jack Tripper for cosigning my sentiments!!”

      Ain’t no thang. I’m surprised no one else said anything. That there weren’t any sistas nominated was the first thing that stuck out to me. Rosa’s worthy but they coulda replaced that other chick with a sista.

  • Look @ All These Haters

    Wow you guy’s are a bunch of hater’s! These girl’s are both pretty in their own way! Rosa && Tammy put in work to get here! Plus why ya’ll so mad? The 1st time around you guy’s could’ve changed the out come with just a simple lil mouse click! But you didn’t SO THE OUTCOME IS ALL IS ON YA’LL. Not XXL. Also none of ya’ll dude. Could even PULL a chick as bad as these two. Funny how you guy’s sitting up here hating. &&They out their liveing their live like you should be doing. NewFlashBitch they don’t give a shit what you think. STOP FUCKING HATEING DICKHEADS AND GO BUY YOU A LIFE!

  • fastflipper

  • zayzkidd

    Where’s my grip?

  • CBS

    I voted strictly on booty. Tammy has the better ass. Plus she can do the splits.

  • Kitty

    Lets be honest the only Vote you can give tammy torres is for kissing rosa acostas ass so much just to get people to notice her. Met tammy friday at a 400 party in miami. you really didnt know it was tammy until she tells you. she makes sure to do that since she looks nothing like her pics in person. you can tell she was upset that the Sexy promotor simplyJess got all love an respect. just off how tammy looks in person im going to rosa. who cares if tammy is from my 305 home town. she is the worst of what 305 women have to offer

  • TonyRay

    I seen both rosa acosta and tammy in person at a party in ny. Going off of what i seen with my own eyes rosa acosta is pretty in person fucking sexy in pics. tammy is a 2 in person and a 5 in her pics. thats the nicest way to put in words what i think. rosa lays back-Moves sexy tammy trys Real hard and push’s her self on people. ROSA ACOSTA All The Way! XxL Make up for your march mistake pick ROSA!

  • robert hamilton

    you cannot lose with either of these beautiful ladies.only a fool would kick these women to the curb.rosa wins only because the thought of helping her break her orgasm record in 2010 thoroughly intrigues me.12 seconds?Hmm….

  • WARREN

    tammy torres is a disrespectful bitch! I just saw a YouTube video with her claiming to be the 1st ever eyecandy of the year! she is such a liar ! does she have any idea that eye candy has been around since j.lo dance with diddy! she is not the frist eyecandy and lets hope she anit eye candy of the year! I LOVE XXL MAG AND THE EYECANDY SECTION EVEN MORE. I TOOK THIS TO BE STONE COLD ON HER PART.
    check for your self how before anyone knew who she was she was making up lies saying she was 1st ever eyecandy of the year! tammy torres Your an ugly joke! VOTE ROSA!

  • bigPus

    XXL BETWEEN MAN FACE ROSA AND JUST POINT BLANK UGLY ASS TAMMY YOU GUYS COULD HAVE GIVEN US A BETTER CHOICE THEN THESE TWO! I CAN SEE WHY YOU PICK ROSA BUT YOU REALLY NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY YOU PICK TAMMY?? SOO UNHAPPY WITH THIS YEARS CHOICE. WHERES MIA, WHERE’S CAT? IF YOU THINK TAMMY IS BETTER THEN THE REST OF THIS YEARS EYECANDY IM GUESSING SHE FUCKING SOMEBODY BONSU!!!!!!!!!

  • http://stores.lulu.com/NSUgezene N.S. Ugezene

    Rosa Acosta had a funny chin on one of the pictures.

  • marques mccray

    why can’ i vote for both

  • Roy Jones Bitch

    Damn this is the reason magazines start failing when they let shit like this fly. Trust me readers see through bullshit like this.

    it becomes so fake……Tammy is definitely fucking Bonsu!!!

    are you serious?!! only plausible explination.

    Suelyn, Britney Dailey, are you serious, Tammy is no where close!!!!

    and i’ve seen Tammy IN PERSON! so no hate, just a insightful observation.

    This nigga BONSU mad high!

  • SARA

    All I wanna know is why Tammy?? I googled her to see if there was something I miss……… Come on XXL what did tammy do that hasn’t been done already to get eye candy of the year nom? 1. She fucks rapper to get on (Wayne Black dada ect .) 2. She was in one video (That you see her in) 3. takes back shot photos to get a fan base like every other wannabe vixen. (thank god for No head shots) How does this make her eye candy of the year? She has nothing going for her in looks or in the “work” she does. BONSU HAVE YOU LOST YOUR EYECANDY TOUCH MAN???????????? Off tammy alone its hard to see how much i love women im so disappointed! look at the comments of people who seen her in person! BAD CHOICE!

  • Danny

    Man, they both regular. Nothing special. Regular face, regular bodies. XXL should nominate even girls who ain’t in videos, cause some of the hottest girls don’t make it into videos cause they to big for tv, like Bubbles, Amazing Amie, Elke The Stallion, Jayona Fabric….Mad crazy bodies, super eye candy and these girls got waaaay more fans. Especially now that everything is internet based, those girls are way more known.

  • MillyBaby

    why is This girl tammy torres up for eyecandy of the year? anyone know?
    she has more you tube videos then any kind of real work. From what im reading on here im not the only who agrees tammy has no reason being a choice for this years eyecandy of the year. After seeing the black dada interview she did I would never vote for someone who lies to feel like someone important.

    I Cant BELIEVE that this is what XXL has come down too…All these gorgeous broads and we have to pick from the bottom two? Why? Cause they sucked their way to a video or two? Being in videos dont make you beautiful and especially for a whole year! WTF!!! im so embarassed for XXL…your credentials are now real sorry!

  • gizzle

    tammy comes from a small town, i think she’s proved herself, and she’s a fun girl. why is everyone hating on her? rosa, she has no personality. alot of hot new artists dont even know her !! tammy should win this .

  • roy Jones Bitch

    So I checked XXL the other day, and I saw where they’d posted the poll where you can vote on the video ho of the year, and come to find out it’s between Rosa Acosta and Tammy Torres. The fuck? Tammy Torres looks like Rosa Acosta with a more mediocre face and a more mediocre body. –

    HAHAHAHHAAHAHHAHA BOL

  • David

    I gotta be honest this tammy torres girl is not good looking at all in person.she got a huge ass but its not smooth and her grill is not one of any female i would call eye candy! a spit ball to the eye if anything.

  • BRRRREMBER

  • Lanisha

    ROSE ACOSTA does look like a tranny. SAD but she prob is… she has fake boobs and no body fat. she coud really be one esp since centro american practices that alot.

  • JoJo

    Yall so damn stupid! I seen the interview Tammy did with BlackDada and she didnt LiE… She was 1st EyeCandy of The Year. XxL magazine titled it that way.

    • summer

      tammy did so lie! she is not 1st ever eye candy of the year! dolicia won last years! not hard to see you have no idea what ur talking about once its comes to xxl magazine eye candy! she also played her self by saying this before xxl even knew of her. she is lame! xxl you owe us big time for even picking this female!

    Really though? Not Saying they arent atttractive women but they are, but i thought XXL was for the black community. This is why we see such fiew Brown skinn, even black girls in videos today cause of shit like this.
