Our Elli is on her way to Las Vegas SHOCK: Bubbly Elli Vukasovic says she was stunned to be named national winner of the Miss Hawaiian Tropics competition. Picture: www.richphotographics.com By DANIEL BOURCHIER TERRITORY bombshell Elli Vukasovic was shocked to be named the national winner of the Miss Hawaiian Tropics competition. And the bubbly brunette said she is still in shock. At 27, Vukasovic told the Sunday Territorian she didnt think she would be chosen over much younger finalists. But the judging panel picked up on her friendly personality and ability to strut the catwalk like no ones business. One of the best things about winning was keeping the Northern Territory up there, she said. In a coup, it was her first national finals in any modelling competition. Vukasovic dressed as a ringmaster for the themed section of the competition, and strutted in three bikinis throughout the judging rounds. The Arts NT communications officer said she wouldnt mind starting her own bikini business in her very limited spare time. Vukasovic will now travel to Las Vegas to contest the international finals of the competition at the end of the year. She said she was well and truly in to preparation mode, kicked off with hitting the gym. I dont see my life changing dramatically, she said.
