GNTM 3: What is Kerasioti Friday?

Paraskevi is 19 years old and lives with her family in Patras. From the first moment she confessed that she has experienced racism due to her origin from a young age but even today. “I have experienced racism because of my background. Even at school when I was younger the kids might have looked at me a bit, they might not have played with me. Even today on the bus or in a shop I go to they can look at me a bit. I do not understand why they are doing this and they are racist towards us. We are all human but we are different.

Her father also spoke about the different way he raised his children on Friday, when he appeared on GNTM 3. The father-daughter relationship was extremely moving. “I am not a strict father, I want to give freedom to my children. In our tribe, you know, we have some customs and I avoided them many years ago, before I even got married. I am a free bird. I say, choose what you want and I will always be by your side, and me and your mom “, said the father of the 19-year-old.

In fact, during her audition, Friday sent a very strong message against racism. «I’m a Gypsy and I would like to send a message. When I was younger I received bad reviews because of my background, but growing up I overcame that. I am not ashamed of who I am, I love what I am very much and I want to send a message to all women and all Gypsies, to love themselves, to love their bodies and not be ashamed of what they are. Each person has their own unique beauty and it is good to show this».

The lukewarm course of Friday at GNTM 3

Friday may have made it into the GNTM 3 home, but it was short-lived. The aspiring model showed that she was trying to find it with the photos, showing that she was having a hard time. Her career in fashion reality could be described as lukewarm, with her departure from home not surprising.

When the player was in the exit duel with Russell, she could not hold back her tears, while when she heard her name, she burst into tears. Friday never took out the oxygen for taking underwater and that cost her her stay at GNTM 3. “If we measure the course for me, I think I have given more than Russell and I deserve more. I know I did not get the oxygen out of my mouth, it was the divers inside. If I judge this, I accept it“, She had said in tears, in her statements after leaving.

“Friday is one of the players I wanted to chase for a long time. “Her hours are counted in here, what came, what will leave now in a little while, I do not even care”, said Emiliano.

«The most difficult farewell for me was when I left. I was not sad for anyone else, I was sad that I left and left this phase. Before I left I did not think I could get here, but as soon as I came back I believed it very much. I wanted to be the only girl who would stay home. I made it. Because of my background I never thought I could do this and when I got home I was very happy. The first thing I want to do when I leave home and I do not want to waste any time is to learn English directly. I think this will help a lot, I want to do it, learn fast and do things“, Typically stated the Friday of GNTM 3.
