Joana Prado is a Brazilian model and entrepreneur, known for the character Feiticeira ("Sorceress") she portrayed on a television show called H. She appeared in several adult magazine pictorials, including on the cover of the Brazilian issue of Playboy three times. She became famous on H, a TV-show on Rede Bandeirantes targeted at teens that became a huge hit thanks to her and Tiazinha. She had her own segment, which was a game show. Only men could participate on the game show, where incorrectly answered questions resulted in being humiliated by Feiticeira. Examples include waxing his legs or shaving his head. For correct answers, contestants were granted a wish from Feiticeira, such as staying with her alone or playing love games with her (but no sex).
