* RummageSaleReject: Ru calls her out during the reunion when Adore says she felt bad seeing the fashion she brought compared to everyone else's. Ru states to her that when you're on All Stars you have to bring original costumes and can't just wear something "off the rack", or if you are, you have to wear it in a way that no one else can copy.

** Multiple times during the All Stars 2 reunion she calls Phi Phi out ... although she doesn't mention her by name, its painfully obvious she's calling BS on Phi Phi's claims against the show.



* IllBoy: Reveals during the reunion right before the show was was recovering from massive lung failure, although she didn't reveal this during the competition because she didn't want any special treatment because of it.



* SequelHook: During the reunion Ru actually extends an early invitation to Adore to participate in All Stars 3 ... although how serious that invitation actually is was unclear.

Added DiffLines:

** In the finale, when giving a speech on why she should win over the other girls, she concludes by saying "я звезда - навсегда. спасибо большое" in un-subtitled Russian. When Ru asks what that means, Katya responds "I have a carburetor outside that I just have to do some work on". It's not revealed during the episode, but what she actually said translates to "I am a star - forever. Thank you so much."
