Yonni Barrios You Legend: Love Cheat Chilean Miner In Photos And Virgins

by | 13th, October 2010

YONNI Barrios is the 50-year-old Chilean miner whose name will live on in tabloid and mining legend. Yonni Barrios is Number 21 – the 21st of 33 miners to compete in the Chilean uphill bobsleigh team at the San Jose copper mine in Copiapo, Chile.

Yonni Barrios is nicknamed “the doctor”. Yonni Barrios has an aglocised named – Johnny Barrios – to make his name gel better on the international stage.

He has a wife and a mistress. Who will he run to first when his head emerges from the Pinochet’s crypt? It’s like an episode of Benji Come Home with a porn parody in the making. So. Who does Yonni greet? Yep, it’s the mistress.

She’s called Susana Valenzuela. And for added comic effect / drama /  irony she’s carrying  effigy of the Virgin Mary.

Says Mrs Barrios, Marta Salinas:

“He asked me to, but it turns out that he also asked the other lady, and I am a decent woman. Things are clear: it’s her or me.

“I won’t even watch it on TV. Besides, in phone conversations and in the letters he has sent me it’s clear that he is fine, and that’s enough for me.”

Not watch it on the telly? Oh, come on. It’s the TV show of the year. Marta needs to embrace the media and sell her story…
