Celeste has already appeared in the short film "Death Gamble," which she said is tentatively set for release next year. Celeste said she enjoyed the experience.
"I really like acting," Celeste said. "It's a lot of fun. It was a suspense-thriller-action type movie."
In addition to supporting her in the quest to win the "Hometown Hottie" contest, Celeste also encouraged fans to check out her website Miss Arianny Celeste.com
"I have a web master that does it, but I check in a lot," Celeste said. "I started blogs and pictures, and all my modeling stuff is on there. It's going to be updated pretty much every week."
