In Rose’s viral video, she introduces her followers to all the outfits she’s purchased in preparation for her appearance on the show, which could have lasted up to two months had it not been taken out.
The first dress, which she wore on TV for her entry on the first night, was a blue dress she bought from Lord and Taylor for $ 198.
In total, Rose showed off seven sets she purchased, ranging from $ 198 to $ 420 per outfit, which works out to a total of $ 2,238.
“If anyone needs to borrow a dress let me know,” she said in the video.
In the comments section of the video, Rose explained that contestants sometimes end up sharing and swapping dresses towards the end of the season.
In an Instagram post, Rose shared some of the tweets shared online during the Season 26 premiere when her name started appearing on Twitter.
“Daria has been accepted into all Ivy League schools, graduated from Harvard and is literally in her third year at Yale Law School … Daris is overqualified for the job,” one tweet read. .
In the post’s caption, Rose shared what a producer asked her during her exit interview for the show.
“[M]y producer asked me ‘what’s next?’ “And I said, ‘f ** king graduate.’ And that’s exactly what I intend to do. “
News week contacted Daria Rose for comment.
