Estefan first came to the spotlight in 1986, when she was hired by Univision to participate as a model at Sábado Gigante. Alongside Don Francisco, Estefan quickly became both a public favorite and a favorite of the show host himself (even appearing on his own "Don Francisco Presenta" on many occasions), as he admitted in his autobiography released in 2002.
