#BIRTHDAY: Maria Elena from Greece is 38 today

#BIRTHDAY: Maria Elena from Greece is 38 today

Continuing our Mediterranean theme – well, it started yesterday – we move east to the popular country taking part in our favourite TV show since the 1970s.

As we’ve discussed, Greece’s success has mainly been 21st Century, when someone gave ERT/NERIT/ERT a kick and told them to pull their socks up. Even now, getting out of semi-finals is fairly easy, even if the Grand Final finish doesn’t always find the mark. But one of Greece’s best finishes recently fell to today’s birthday girl Μαρία Έλενα Κυριάκου/Maria Elena Kyriakou (almost two-thirds of an Andy Paul song title, but there you go). She wowed us with her preview video set in an underground car park with trailing wires that looked a little unsafe. By the final, all health & safety issues were resolved and she’d opted for the portal to another dimension instead. The noteworthy thing about our M-E was that she only got eight points from a certain Eastern Mediterranean island! Who knew?
