Ana Carolina Ardohaín Dos Santos (born January 17, 1978, in General Acha, La Pampa), who goes by the nickname "Pampita" Ardohain, is an Argentine model, television personality ("Bailando por un sueño (2006)," or "Dancing for a Dream") and actress (e.g. as Lulu in "Rebel's Way" and Ema in "Doble Vida" or "Double Life").

Pampita is a fixture in Latin American tabloids. She and Benjamín Vicuña were together for ten years but separated in 2015 amidst disputed allegations of infidelity (specifically, Pampita claims that she walked in on Benjamin and another woman, Eugenia Suarez, were, um, together in a motor home. He claims they already were estranged at that time and currently plans to marry Eugenia).

More recently, Pampita has been linked with Juan "Pico" Mónaco, a retired tennis player also from Argentina who retired in 2017.

Together, Pampita and Benjamin had four children (Bautista, Beltrán, and Benicio survive), but one, a girl named Blanca Vicuna, passed away from a virus in 2012. The event received a lot of publicity, and the couple took it very hard.

The name "Pampita," by the way, apparently comes from Las Pampas, the Argentine/ Uruguayan/ Brazilian grasslands between the Andes and the Atlantic Ocean. This was a notorious haven of outlaws in the past, somewhat akin to the US Wild West. The name has a bit of an edge of rebelliousness to it.

She is widely known by the nickname Pampita, a diminutive for La Pampa, the Argentine province where she was born ("Las Pampas" is the general name for the deserts of Argentina, which have a great similarity to the American West). She was one of the very few people baptized at the monastery of Nuestra Señora del Pilar in Recoleta, Buenos Aires. Her mother is Brazilian.

Carolina Ardohain has to have one of the tightest bodies of any top model anywhere. Pampita began her career in front of the camera at age 17, when a model scout discovered her working at a shop in Buenos Aires.

Pampita quickly became a success. Her modeling credits include Victoria’s Secret, Honda, and Coca-Cola.

Carolina has an official Twitter page under the name of Pampita Ardohain which is quite active. She has over 2 million Twitter followers, and that ain't beanbag. You may not know much about Carolina Ardohain, and may never, in fact, have heard of her before - but you can't argue with 2 million followers. That's big league.

Ardohain has broadened her horizons to include acting in "Desearás al Hombre de tu Hermana" (2017). "Desearás" is a soft erotic film whose title roughly translates to "You Will Covet Your Sister's Man." Pampita plays a woman - apparently an exotic dancer - who comes to desire the husband (Juan Sorini ) of her sister Lucia, played by Mónica Antonópulos. This leads to conflict between the sisters, of course. There's lots of atmospheric music and a big climactic physical struggle in a swimming pool. Just how "erotic" this film may be is open to interpretation, but it has received a lot of attention in South America. It is worth mentioning that the director, Diego Kaplan, has had to defend the film against accusations of child exploitation. So, "Desire" (as it is called in English) is a bit edgy.
