Elena Ionescu is a beautiful woman. The lead singer of Romania’s 2012 Eurovision act Mandinga is currently dominating Wiwi’s annual search for Eurovision’s Next Top Model. As of 20 April, she had earned nearly 35% of all votes in the contest. But Elena isn’t just a pretty face: she’s also a talented singer and very, very sweet person. In order to express her thanks, Elena recorded the following video message for all of you supporting her in our poll. Our favorite part is when she extends our readers a great big e-hug. That fits well with the message of Mandinga’s song “Zaleilah”: it’s all about love and sunshine. Who can resist giving that 12 points?
It’s still early in the Top Model contest—we are only in the semi-finals stage. But it looks like Elena has a very strong chance of bringing Romania yet another victory. We still need to eliminate eight women by the first week of May. Then we will begin voting in the finals, and all of you will have a second chance to choose your favorite. Wiwi & Co. are not biased, but if we were betting we would probably put money on this stunning daughter of Bucharest!
Bonus footage! Romania’s AcasaTV shows us how Elena keeps fit—and theorizes why she is winning our search for Eurovision’s Next Top Model. Wait for the Wiwi shout-out at 0:15 🙂
