Loved the interview! Watching a video interview instead of just reading it was a great change of pace and I thought she was really entertaining to listen to!

I enjoyed the interview! I loved her facial expressions and loved the part when she imitated her mother... "...why are we here." XD Don't worry Bettina you're beautiful even without make-up. (:

That was an interesting video. She doesn't look like a cross between Columbian and German.
Sounds like a contest I'd like to enter and it gives me plenty of time to enter.
