Breaking into the television industry is supposedly a fiendishly difficult task. To become a TV presenter often requires a combination of luck, determination, hard work and knowing the right people, because there is no direct route into it. They tend to be the ones reading the headlines but one wannabe reporter is making them.
When Enki Baracaj was doing a screen test for an Albanian network, Zjarr channel, she opted for a rather revealing outfit to get the boss’s attention. And her attire obviously worked because she got the job.
The 21-year-old said, “It was obvious that if I wanted to make it I had to be brave and offer something different.” It turned her idea of “something different” was an open cut top that left little up to the imagination.
It appears that those responsible for the hiring aren’t the only fans of Eniki’s ‘if you’ve got it flaunt it’ attitude because she has already proved a ratings hit. Plus her popularity has spread beyond her native Albania, with one of her videos being widely shared in neighbouring Serbia.
Eniki revealed, “There is not just a lot of competition to get on television, but also competition between the channels. I simply found a way to put myself ahead and also to ensure that my channel gets the best ratings.”
I can barely function with all the Anchorman quotes entering my head right now. All I can say is… Stay Classy Enika.
The morale of this story? If all else fails girls, we’ve always got our boobs to help us stand out from the crowd. Before all you feminists out there start getting you knickers in a twist I’m obviously being sarcastic.
