With five annual Victoria’s Secret fashion shows under her belt, Candice Swanepoel is a pro at prepping to strut the catwalk in next-to-nothing.

From all-liquid diets and grueling daily sweat sessions to near deprivation, it’s easy to see why some models go to great lengths to prepare for their goddess-like figures for the televised lingerie show. But Swanepoel eschews such extreme tactics, opting instead to simply ramp up her regular diet and fitness routine.

Hmm, we think that’s code for “wow, this pop princess actually has a hint of nuttiness like me!”

She also (well, basically) excused the showed for not being as drama-filled at American Idol, even though the latter series hasn’t even aired yet.

Blatantly referring to the Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey drama she said:"At the end of the day, it's about the contestants. It's not about us as judges. I think other shows maybe forget that the entire purpose of the competition is to find a superstar, not to get publicity for the wrong
