Big Brother 2013: No ‘gold’ for Gina Rio despite Spandau Ballet support

DESPITE backing from Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp former University of Hertfordshire student Gina Rio failed to secure ‘gold’ in Big Brother 2013.
The socialite dropped out of a fashion and marketing course at the Hatfield-based university because “people didn’t party enough”.
She found favour with Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, who tweeted: “Gina to win #BBUK.”
But, ultimately, there was no party for Gina, 24, as she was evicted from the famous house, in Borehamwood, in third place in the live final, last night (Monday).
You know that much is true.
She finished behind male housemates Dexter Koh and winner Sam Evans, who scooped the £100,000 prize.
Before residing in Channel 5’s stockade for wannabe celebs, she lived in luxury in London’s Savoy Hotel for six months fully paid for by her parents.
Gina admitted she spends money when she is angry, and said: “If I’m angry I feel I deserve certain things”.
Her official Big Brother biography revealed she “has never had a real job where she has been employed by a company”.
But she does wardrobe styling and personal shopping for her rapper boyfriend, Ecksell, and her mum’s friends “who admire her fashion sense”.
She is said to live off a £10,000-a-month allowance from her mum which she spends on clothes, make-up, going out, petrol, haircuts, pedicures, manicures and other ways of treating herself.
