Candice Swanepoel: Victoria's Secret Bra

Posted: Updated:

"We've been waiting for it for a month, we filmed it in November..."

That's Victoria's Secret "Angel" Candice Swanepoel talking about the "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" airing this week. Candice talked up the show and also brought along the world's most expensive undergarment. A bra worth about 10 million dollars. Steve and Maria asked her if getting to wear the valuable bra is something each model strives for every year.

"It's a huge deal in the Victoria's Secret family...each year it's a surprise which girl is chosen. And they kind of custom make it to what they think your personality is."

Maria asked Candice if she chows down on burgers when she's able to relax and take a break from the runway..her answer was a bit of a surprise and drew joking hisses from Maria.

"I'm a little different, I don't really have to diet. I actually have to eat a lot more because I have to be really strong on the runway...you want to have good strong legs to carry the wings and everything, you have to be strong. After the show my guilty pleasure is not having to work out anymore and sleep."

Steve also asked the South African born model about her homeland post Nelson Mandela.

"I just hope that South African people continue to respect what he fought for and it's just amazing to see how the world loved him as well. It's very, it's emotional."

"The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" airs Tuesday night at ten on CBS.
