Melbourne, Mar 14 (ANI): Australians have come out in support of the Russian "dream job" candidate caught in porn scandal.
Tourism Queensland announced that it is investigating claims that Julia Yalovitsyna, a front-runner in their "best job in the world" campaign, worked as a model for an illegal porn studio and coached women for sexually explicit films.
However, Aussies have backed Yalovitsyna, with most saying she should be allowed in the competition.
Many people believe she would be a good face for Tourism Queensland and that her looks would lure more people to the state.
"Who cares if she was in a porn scandal? Her hotness will lure more men to that overpriced place," News.com.au quoted a reader as saying.
Another reader said that her unique accent would be an advantage.
"She will be perfect for the job and a fresh face for Queensland holidays. Her accent is totally mind blowing," said the reader.
Meanwhile, Yalovitsyna's computer has been seized by police for investigation, as it contained some of the materials included in the criminal case.
A spokesperson from Tourism Queensland said it was taking the matter seriously.
"We are taking the claims made in the media seriously and are currently investigating the matter. Tourism Queensland will decide on a course of action once we have accurate information," said a spokesperson. (ANI)
