WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - Quepasa Corporation (OTCBB: QPSA), one of the world's fastest-growing Latino social networks, announced the winner of its 2009 Quepasa - Playboy México Cyber Girl contest. As winner of the contest, Brazilian swimsuit model Fernanda Schonardie will appear on the cover of Playboy México's 2010 Summer Edition.

The Playboy México Cyber Girl contest is hosted on Quepasa's Playboy México online community (www.quepasa.com/playboyMéxico), which has grown to over 2 million monthly page views, 90,000 members and over 200 contestants since its launch in January 2009.

The Quepasa partnership is allowing us to identify that 'girl next door' by offering an interactive platform to millions of aspiring women throughout the US and Latin America," says Gabriel Bauducco, Playboy México's Editorial Director. "In addition, Quepasa's social features -- such as voting, commenting, and sharing across other social networks -- provide real-time feedback with regards to the popularity of each contestant."
