“After giving the bottles, a lot of hugs and kisses and a little less sleep, I’m really training.

“I was a little nervous, but I think I’m fine,” Yanina says shortly after her performance. “I didn’t forget any moves and that was my biggest fear.” But then the masks fell off and no one expected that she was under the mask. “It was so cool seeing their faces the moment I took off my mask. You can really see in their mind that they never expected it.” She’s a little disappointed that she came out first, but she’s generally satisfied. “I am so glad I got involved and thought it was an honor to be among all these toppers here. I really overcame the fears because this is a way out of my natural environment. I am grateful that I was able to experience this adventure.”
Behind The Mask can now be watched on VTM GO and Wednesday, January 19th at 8.35pm on VTM.
