La Carmina - - appears on Strangers in Danger, a new travel-thrill program airing on Fuel TV, Discovery and National Geographic. Her company fixed (location-scouted and arranged) the Japan episode, and she's on-screen as the subculture guide -- a.k.a. "Hot Goth."

In this scene, BMX stars Rooftop (Mike Escamilla) and Catfish (Zach Yankush) get saline injections into their foreheads, creating donut-heads. Then La Carmina takes them to cyber alternative Decadance Bar to party.
