A wannabe news anchor found a creative way of convincing producers that she deserved to land her dream job when she auditioned for the role with her blouse completely undone.
The presenter landed the position after she gave a very revealing screen test for the Zjarr news channel in Albania.
The bizarre audition video has been uploaded to Youtube and gone viral, with the caption naming the newsreader as 21-year-old student Enki Bracaj.
And a spokesperson for the channel has all but admitted that it was Enki’s impressive cleavage, rather than her not-so-impressive newsreading skills, which snagged her the job.
The spokesperson said:
Most agree that her presentation style is somewhat awkward, but we are working on that and to be honest it doesn’t seem to be doing any harm to her viewing figures.
For her part, Enki simply described her stunt as ‘a way to put myself ahead in a competitive industry’ and, to be fair, it definitely did the trick!
It was obvious that if I wanted to make it I had to be brave and offer something different. I checked first with my parents and when I found that they also supported me in my decision, it wasn’t a problem for me to go ahead like this. I simply found a way to put myself ahead and also to ensure that my channel gets the best ratings.
And, according to reports, Enki’s talents are proving a hit with viewers so, in the end, it looks like this strange situation has been a win-win for everyone involved!
