Who is Doris Cano?

Doris, who recently turned 33, is the CEO of Diamond Divas Entertainment, a company that provides dancers, models, and performers to various events, alongside dance classes. This Bethpage resident is no stranger to glam & glitz, as before turning into the boss-lady that she is today, she was a New York Jets Flight Crew cheerleader from 2008-09 and a Philadelphia. In an interview with News Day, she explained how she was looking for "something different" on the FOX dating show. "I would never see myself normally going on a dating show but crazier things have happened, and I am at a point in my life where, hey, if things aren't working out a certain way, you've go to try something different. So this is the something different."

Doris has been in front of the cameras ever since she was a little girl. While she was in elementary school, she starred in the Crest Kid toothpaste commercial. She was also featured in the 1995 KidVision half-hour video 'Kathie Lee's Rock n' Tots Cafe: A Christmas ‘Giff.' She however got her big break while she was accompanying her friend to a dancer's audition for New York Knicks City. Doris was persuaded to audition and she ended up earning a spot amongst the final 16. This convinced her that she could make a living off her dancing skills. 

The outlet also reported that Doris' mother whose name is also Doris, is an Ecuadorian who moved to the United States at the age of five. Doris's father Oscar, owns a carpeting and flooring business. He came to the United States at the age of 21. Doris said, "My dad is really where I've gotten my work ethic. I really didn't want to work for someone else but for myself. Just seeing how he came here without the opportunities people normally have and still make multiple businesses for himself — he's just amazing."

We can't wait to watch Doris and her journey on 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer'.

'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer' premieres on Thursday, January 6, 2022, at 8/7c on FOX.
