After gaining second spot in Vibe Magazine’s “30 Sexiest Celebrities Under 30”, Iglesias was then hired by the World Poker Tour (or WPT) as the Royal Flush Girl, appearing in 265 televised episodes of the tour. The World Poker Tour is a televised gaming brand, known for broadcasting the final tables of numerous high stakes international poker tournaments. Melanie was then cast in all three seasons of the MTV series entitled “Guy Code” which features numerous popular names such as athletes, entertainers, experts, and comics, discussing a special code of conduct that exists between men.
The show became highly popular, and also spawned a spin-off entitled “Girl Code” of which she was also a part.

She also became a regular cast member of another spin-off series entitled “Guy Court”, in which she performed the role of a bailiff.

For her personal life, it is known that Melanie dated reality television personality Vinnie Guadagnino, who is best known from appearing in the MTV show “Jersey Shore”, and was also the star of another MTV show, entitled “The Hard Times of RJ Berger”. They started their relationship in 2012 but it ended two years later. She then had a relationship with actor Ryan Guzman, who is known for playing Sean Asa in the “Step Up” series, however, their relationship ended in 2015.
