Runner Up: Masha Spiridonova
Hometown: Saratov, Russia.
Favorite food: sushi and sashimi.
Guilty pleasure: Nutella and cheese.
Her Story: We’re sure James Bond wouldn’t mind having this Russian adversary tailing him through the streets of Moscow. Masha Spiridonova’s a soon-to-be geneticist by day and high-fashion model by night, she even has the resume to match. Her double life pursuing a degree in evolutionary and ecological biology and Denver fashion shows leaves little time for much else, although she manages to make time for her dogs and to read up on science. Genetics is sexy.
