Josie Canseco is grateful she had the chance to spread her wings this year.
The 22-year-old daughter of former MLB star Jose Canseco recently walked on Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the first time, a year after her audition for the 2017 edition turned out far from a home run.
“I had one job, and that was to walk,” she told The New York Post, adding her heel snagged on a carpet, resulting her to trip. “I couldn’t even do that! I laughed it off, though. I’m really good at laughing at myself.”
When it came to this year’s audition, Canseco told the outlet she was armed with more physical and emotional endurance, which helped her at one point when she and other models were kept waiting for hours. Still, Canseco refused to complain because she wanted to make her mark at this year’s show.
“I was honored to be sitting there with all these girls,” said Canseco. “Everyone was so excited and rooting for each other and smacking each other’s butts. I was like, ‘I’ll sit here forever.’”
The executives were impressed by Canseco’s determination. The blonde beauty revealed she burst into tears when her agent told her she was officially on this year’s lineup as a Victoria’s Secret model. She spilled the news to her mother, her boyfriend and her father last.
Canseco is aware her father Jose has developed a controversial reputation both on and off the field. The New York Post detailed he was initially arrested for reckless driving, weapons possession, domestic violence against her mom (then-wife Jessica), aggravated battery in a bar fight and probation violations.
