The Miss Russian National Beauty Contest announced the winners of the Miss Longest Legs contest, as part of its innovative online casting competition that gives instant prizes to the favorite contestants of online voters.
Voting for Miss Longest Legs, which takes place on the official Miss Russia website www.missrussia.ru, was intense. Miss Russia contest management had to disqualify the three leading candidates due to vote manipulation (discovered by expert technical analysis of audience activity compared to geography and frequency of votes received).
First prize was awarded to 18-year-old Anastasia Strashevskaya from Kuibyshev (9,880 votes). Anastasia receives 90,000 rubles and a personalized Russian Standard Bank card with her individual design, as well as the opportunity to take part in the final casting for the Miss Russia 2014 beauty pageant. Anastasia, a student of Novosibirsk Institute of Law, enjoys dancing and fitness. She takes part in various charity activities that help orphans.
Second place went to 18-year-old Elena Petrova from Nakhodka (8,091 votes). Twenty-one-year-old Nadezhda Frolova from St. Petersburg won third place (7,604 votes).
Elena and Nadezhda receive 60,000 and 30,000 rubles, respectively, as well as Russian Standard Bank cards with their individual designs.
The winner of this round’s Jury Choice award is 22-year-old Anna Grishina from Veshkaima, who receives a 15,000 ruble prize.
