The Bachelor’s Alex Bordyukov spoke with our Fashion Editor and Model Rebecca Mardikes. Rebecca was provided questions by KCFW participants. He answered ALL of them! Read about them now and get to know all about Alex!
KCFW: What did you know about The Bachelor before you went ahead and joined the show? Did you have previous knowledge on the show?
Bordyukov: Before the show, I did not know much [about it]. I was interested in the production when they called me and then decided to consider it!
KCFW: What was it like to be on The Bachelor?
Bordyukov: There is nothing like it. It was different and a very memorable experience.
KCFW: Where were you in your life and what were you doing before you decided to go on The Bachelor?
Bordyukov: Before the show I was in a good place! I felt established but was seeking a significant other.
KCFW: What are you doing now AFTER The Bachelor?
Bordyukov: After The Bachelor I travel for work as an IT accountant. Today I will also travel for whenever a fun neat opportunity happens here and there, such as Kansas City Fashion Week! I didn’t want the show to change my life, I wanted it to enhance the life I already created.
KCFW: You won “Best Dressed” on The Bachelor! Tell us about your style and where you get your inspiration.
Bordyukov: My inspiration is bold styles, colors and patterns. I want a shock factor but nothing too obnoxious.
KCFW: How would you describe the perfect date?
Bordyukov: My ideal date would be to eat ice cream at the zoo.
KCFW: What is your type?
Bordyukov: I am a big fan of goofy!
KCFW: Do you prefer to pursue or to be pursued?
Bordyukov: I personally prefer being pursued, before and after show.
KCFW: Who is YOUR celebrity crush?
Bordyukov: My celebrity crush is Tiffany Haddish.
KCFW: How did you get involved in fashion and runway modeling?
Bordyukov: The Brand Ambassador for Kansas City Fashion Week, Edward Manoukian, invited me to participate in the show and the rest is history!
KCFW: Who are your favorite designers?
Bordyukov: My favorite designer is Mr. Turk. I really like Taft shoes.
KCFW: If you were a clothing brand, which one would you identify as?
Bordyukov: I would identify as John Varvatos.
KCFW: What night are you walking in KCFW and for whom?
Bordyukov: I will be walking in Kansas City Fashion Week on Wednesday and for Eddie Bauer.
KCFW: Would you rather wear Abercrombie or Sandals with socks?
Bordyukov: I would rather wear sandals and socks.
KCFW: Omg! Can you ask him out for me?
KCFW: Have you learned any modeling moves from Jordan Kimball
Bordyukov: If I learned from him it would be a regression, I’m self-taught! Haha.
KCFW: Have you practiced runway walking before since this is your first time?
Bordyukov: My first walk will be Wednesday night. No practice.
KCFW (Rebecca): Will you take me on a date?
