And Then There Was ONE

Layla El is the winner of the 2006 WWE $250,000 Diva Search. Besides her new title of WWE Diva, the new queen of the ring is also being hailed as one of the sexiest women on TV.

TMZ has followed the competition since its inception in July, when hundreds of girls auditioned for the coveted spot.

After dozens of beauties strutted their stuff in front of judges, eight finalists were chosen. Fans were able to participate in the selection process via cell phone and online voting.

TMZ sat down with the quarter million dollar winner to talk about her journey to diva-hood and the doubts she had along the way.
