Sharmaine Ruffa Rama Gutierrez (born June 24, 1974) is a Filipino model, beauty queen, host and actress. She was the 1992 Look of the Year - Philippines, Binibining Pilipinas World 1993 and Second Runner-up to Miss World 1993.


Gutierrez began acting as a teenager in the 1980s, under BMG Films. She became part of German Moreno's That's Entertainment variety show in the early 1990s before becoming a beauty queen in 1993. In December 1990, Gutierrez replaced Snooky Serna for the lead role in Regal Film's Wunder Wuman Plus One, paired with comedian Rene Requiestas. However, the project did not come to fruition, with Gutierrez and Requiestas instead paired in the 1993 film Hulihin: Probinsyanong Mandurukot.

As the official representative of her country to the 1993 Miss World pageant held in Sun City, South Africa, on November 27, Gutierrez placed Second Runner-up to winner Lisa Hanna of Jamaica.

In 1993, Gutierrez was linked to the Brunei beauties affair.

In the late 1980s and 1990s she did multiple films each year from 1987 to 1998 with Regal Films. She ventured into TV again as a replacement and regular TV host on The Buzz, a Sunday TV talk show, and then in 2010 with Paparazzi on rival station TV5.

Personal life

She is the only daughter of actor Eddie Gutierrez and talent manager Annabelle Rama. She has two half-brothers, Tonton Gutierrez and Ramon Christopher, from her father's previous relationships. She has five brothers: Elvis Gutierrez, Rocky Gutierrez, Ritchie Paul Gutierrez and Raymond Gutierrez and Richard Gutierrez.

In 2003, she married Yilmaz Bektas, Turkish businessman. They have two daughters. They announced their separation through a joint statement on May 8, 2007.
