Super Bowl 51 was extra hot this year, and it was all because of Ellie Gonsalves! The Australian model made jaws drop when she appeared in a sexy bikini in Yellowtail’s SB commercial, and now everyone’s dying to know more about her! HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY chatted with Ellie and you’re about to be obsessed…
Ellie Gonsalves, 25, is the stunning Australian-born model who won over Super Bowl 51 fans everywhere on Sunday [Feb. 5] when she rocked a white bikini in Yellowtail wine’s commercial. Although the Patriots walked away with the coveted championship trophy when they bet the Atlanta Falcons 34-28, Ellie walked away with the hearts of just about every viewer on TV who took in the game!
The gorgeous brunette starred in Yellowtail’s entertaining and reported $10 million 30-second commercial during SB 51. Ellie made heads turn when she walked up on a beach in a white bikini to pet a kangaroo, and HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY chatted with Brisbane-born babe about her once-in-a-lifetime experience. Ellie told us that Yellowtail actually found her for the commercial! “We flew to Barcelona to shoot the commercial… it was freezing on the beach there, but we had so much fun that I forgot about it!”, she said. Wow!
When it comes to wine, Ellie dished that she’s a big fan of Yellowtail’s Sauvignon Blanc, which is interesting because she loves sweet wine, like Moscato. Although Ellie doesn’t drink too often because she’s got to keep that model body on point, she admitted that Yellowtail is her go-to indulging cocktail.
Ellie’s 25th birthday happened to be on the Super Bowl, so it’s safe to say she had the best present ever! “To have a Super Bowl commercial come out on your birthday, you can’t ever top that,” she gushed. However, Ellie didn’t travel to Houston for the big game. She actually celebrated her special day in Las Vegas with a bunch of her friends. But, don’t worry, they were sure to take in the game on TV, while she rocked her Pats gear! You heard right, Ellie’s a “Patriots girl,” so it looks like she got another present when they took home another SB championship!

Another pic from the @GUESS Lingerie 2016 Campaign. This is around the time I booked my first Guess campaign and then when this campaign hit, my life really changed. One day I'll share the nitty gritty of it and all the other crazy things that were going on in my life at this time, but for now, let me just say that I have my determination, vision and this amazing man, Mr @paulmarciano What a special, kind and generous person. I am extremely grateful for Paul having the same belief that I have which was that I belong to the Guess family.. 🙏🏼 Photographer @meganeclaire / Hair @hisvintagetouch / Makeup @laurenolearybeauty
