Kasia Kowalska Interview about TheMightGuppyBear's BNTM

K: Kasia

L: Me



L: Hey Kasia, how are you ?

K: I am great, how are you?

L: I'm good, thanks for asking. Anyway, I wanted to talk to you about your recent BNTM win.

K: Of course.

L: You recently competed in, and won, TheMightyGuppyBear's Bratz Next Top Model. What was that experience like?

K. It really was amazing. I am a big fan of her and I was so excited to compete in her BNTM. I was even more excited after hearing that I had won, it was a dream come true.

L: Did you ever expect to win?

K: Well you always imagine yourself winning but many times those images never become reality. I'm sure every girl imagines herself winning a BNTM when she enters. I was lucky enough to have my dream become a reality, especially with such difficult competition.

L: Speaking of tough competition, who do you think was your toughest competition?

K: When I first saw the auditions, I knew Natalia would be very big competition. I was a little shocked to see her go home so early. I also knew Kalyna would be very big competition, especially after seeing her photo for the first theme. Also, as the competition progressed, I knew Sally would be a tough competitor as her photos were getting better and better.

L: You said Kalyna was also big competition, do you think she should have been in the finally with you ?

K: Actually, I don't. Kalyna's photos were very good but as the weeks progressed, they seemed to not have as much effort in them as they did at the begging of the competition. Sally definitely deserved to be in the finale because she was really giving her all in her photos.

L: Were you close with any of the girls?

K: Honestly, not really. I never really seemed to strike up a conversation with any of them and none of them ever really talked to me either. I guess that could be a good thing since I didn't get too attached to any of the girls and I didn't get as upset as I might have when they left. If I was close to any of them, it might have been hard to see them go home.

L: Kasia, before you go I have one last question.

K: Of course

L: What do you think was your favorite and least favorite photo shoot.

K: Hmmm, that's a difficult decision. I definitely know that my least favorite had to be "Never Let Me Go", I was so awkward on set and I never really connected with the male model. I was also a bit sick that week so it was hard for me to focus and get a good photo. I knew I would be in the bottom two but I was really happy that I stayed.

As for my favorite, I had a lot of favorites. I really loved the two finale themes and the album cover challenge. I think my favorite though was the first week's theme; "Big Hair" . I absolutely loved how my photo came out, I was actually surprised that I did not get top photo or at least top two. I still really love my photo from that week though.

L: Kasia, thank you so much for speaking to us, is there anything you'd like to say before we go?

K: I would just like to thank everyone who cheered for me and who supported me throughout the competition. You all made me want to push myself to the top and to be the best I could be. Thank you all so very much.

L: Kasia, it's been an honor, thank you so much for talking to us and we hope to see you soon.

K: It was my pleasure.
