Ten girls are going to compete for the Miss AUBG 2012 crown this spring. The contestants were selected at a closed casting yesterday and impressed the organizers with good looks, sense of humor and ambitious plans for expressing their talents.The jury at the casting consisted of Veronika Bobrova, president of Miss AUBG, Shirin Hagverdibayova, organizer, Liza Yakovleva, Anastasia Babich, Sevelina Koleva and Alyona Permyakova, all of them previous contestants in the pageant. However, the jury for the show itself will be kept a secret until the big day comes.
Like last year, there we will see the girls in casual clothes, evening gowns, swimsuits and each of them will perform an act, showing a talent. At the casting it became clear there will be dancing, singing, a fashion show and even poetry. The organizers kept encouraging the new Miss AUBG participants to be brave and original, in order to show who they are and what makes them unique. Most of participants said main reason they wanted to participate in the contest was to get the new experience. “I don’t want to become Miss AUBG so much. […] I just want to have fun, and share what I am with the others,” said Azaliya Zaripova from Russia. Kseniya Tsitovich said that participating in the contest will be something completely unlike anything she has done. “I’ve always been involved in intellectual competitions, but this time I’m going to be jive dancing on a stage. It’s exciting.” The Miss AUBG 2012 event will be on March 30, club Extreme, 11p.m. The Facebook page of the contest is up and running with the pictures of the 10 selected contestants.
