About the Contest
Polina says: “A month before the contest we were forbidden to leave the house without security – me and 49 other contestants lived in a country hotel. I did not see even with my parents! Of course, it was not easy, all the girls with the character – there were quarrels. Used to find an approach to different people, so I did not enter the conflicts.
We were fed with steamed food, so that we did not gain weight. For me it was not something out of the ordinary – I have been eating like this for six years. And some contestants complained that they wanted fried potatoes…The night before the finale was, of course, the hardest – the beauties were nervous and almost did not sleep. And then it was morning, and everything began to spin – there was no time to worry.
It’s good that my parents were not at the presentation – I would be more nervous for them than for myself. But they, of course, congratulated me first – they called. And then there were messages in social networks – someone was happy for me, someone wrote that I was not worthy of the crown. It is a pity that I do not have time to answer – there is absolutely no time. But I accept everything: both kind words and criticism. I think if it’s not there it’s somehow abnormal. I would even be hurt if I was not scolded. ”
