|Nina reppin the Sens in her jersey|
Sens Town: So you grew up in Ottawa and lived here until recently moving to Toronto right. How big of a Sens fan are you?
Nina Vigile: I grew up in a family of boys and all of them played hockey, so being the only girl, hockey and the Ottawa Senators have always been a big part of my life.
ST: Who are your all time favorite Senator players?
Nina: My all time favorite players are Mike Fisher (was a total hunk), and Jason Spezza is my current favorite for obvious reasons.
ST: How much do you follow the team?
Nina: Whenever I visit home, my daddy and I go for wings and beers at a sports bar near by, otherwise if there's a game on it's always playing on our TV at home.
ST: What's your best Sens related memory so far?
Nina: My best Sens related memory would definitely be when the Sens made it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007.
ST: How do you think the team will do this year? It's seems to be a season that could see the team do well if everyone plays up to their potential.
Nina: It's hard to say how they'll do this year with all the new young players, but I'm definitely rooting for them big time from Toronto!
ST: Did you happen to bring any Sens gear with you for your trip on the show? Do you ever wear any around Toronto to annoy Leafs fans?
Nina: Unfortunately I wasn't able to bring any Sens gear on the trip and I don' usually wear any around Toronto but I definitely would now that the season has begun. Especially if the Senators want to send me some free stuff haha.
ST: So let's talk about your show for a second. How do you get involved?
Nina: A friend of mine knew the casting director for the TV show, so he referred me and the rest is history.
ST: So for those of us who may not know, explain what the concept of the show is exactly.
Nina: The Project Guatemala is about taking "nine privileged young adults" out of their element and giving them the opportunity to experience the trip of a lifetime - and give back to those less fortunate.
ST: From the trailer, it says that basically they tricked the cast into thinking it was going to be a normal reality type show and surprised you all by making you do work for those less well off than you in Guatemala. How do you feel about being misled?
Nina: At first I was understandably a little upset and offended that I was misled in such a dishonest way, but hey I'm always saying how much I love surprises and like to make the best of every situation, so i went with it and ended up appreciating the opportunity to be part of something that will have such a great impact on others. It really was life changing, I became so much more aware, knowledgeable and compassionate along with so much more.
ST: Sounds like in the end it ended up being really positive. That's a great way to look at it. So when you're not saving the world, what do you like to do in your down time?
Nina: I spend most of my free time at the mall, the gym, or Starbucks just relaxing. I also enjoy taking off every month to travel whether it be to journeyto different civilizations or simply to relax amongst family and friends. I also thoroughly enjoy reading, as well as taking care of my prized possession, my teacup Yorkie named Louis. And of course watching the Sens when I can.
ST: So when and where can we watch you and your show?
Nina: Tune in for the premiere of The Project: Guatemala on Monday September 23 @ 10PM, immediately followed by a live aftershow. You can watch it on City TV or The Outdoor Life Network.
ST: If people want to know more about you or follow you on social networks where can they go? And more upcoming projects?
Nina: They can follow me on instagram @enveegile or Facebook Nina Vigile to stay tuned in on some new tv shows, events and my Canada tour i will be doing! And Go Sens Go xoxo
