TV Show

While studying towards her first masters degree at University of Economics Varna, Yanita decided to apply to a TV show in Bulgaria.

Her application was successful, and in 2008, at the age of 21, Yanita appeared on national TV.

The nature of the program meant that she lost 8lbs over the course of the show. She made it to the final of the show, but was eliminated.

Although she didn’t win, Yanita had gained national exposure; becoming a star in her home country.
