Next step to fame was a TV contest “Secret of success” in 2005. Without any hesitation she went to casting in Samara and she was easily admitted to the contest. She was very confident on the stage in every round while coming closer to the finale. And that moment came. At the final concert of “Secret of success” Jenya competed with Vladimir Sapovsky and she took second place.
