When Arina Aliyeva got the call for Miss Virtual Kazakhstan finale, little did the world know that this pretty belle was hiding more than just beauty secrets! Apparently, Arina is actually a famous Kazakh male model, named, Eli Diaghilev. Shocked and confused??? Well, here's the full story: 22-year old Eli from Alma Ata in Kazakhstan signed up for Miss Virtual Kazakhstan 2018 and sent his photographs cross-dressed as a woman named Arina.

The male model argued that anybody can pass off as a beautiful woman with right use of cosmetics and Photoshop, which did not sit well with his friends. To prove his point, the model dressed up as a girl and enrolled for the beauty pageant, where his photoshopped pictures won likes from across the nation, enough to carry him to the competition's finals. Finally, after taking netizens by storm and receiving an invitation from the organisers Arina revealed her true identity. Arina aka Eli released a video telling the world that why and how he disguised and posed as a woman on the internet for so long.

"I reached the finals and I realised that everything had gone too far, so I decided to expose the image of Arina Aliyeva. There were about four thousand applications from all over Kazakhstan in the very beginning, and I went to the finals."The organisers of the beauty contest have already replaced the man with another beautiful and deserving 'woman' after the revelation video.
