Sure, anyone with a choice wouldn’t ever choose to live in Russia as it’s a miserable, gray and cold place, but if you somehow end up there after drawing the short straw, at least you can bet on Alena Vodonaeva to grace your television.

The 35-year-old TV host is a huge deal in her native country and she’s been in plenty of reality TV shows, starting with Dom-2, which is a show that focuses on potential suitors racing to build their own home. Vodonaeva was also on the Russian version of Dancing with the Stars. But it’s her work hosting stuff on MTV and DTV that really made her a big deal.

And Vodonaeva recently teamed up with Maxim Russia to take some amazing shots. Take a look at the magazine’s cover below:
