Gennady in her own words

I'm a party girl and all about that 'work hard, play hard' lifestyle. Since I'm loud, bold and brutally honest, I often find myself at the centre of drama, but really I just want to be living life to the fullest. My greatest fear is rats and I hope there'll be no love rats on the island because I've had my fair share of disappointments! I don't like bad boys, but somehow I always seem to find them, so let's see how it goes.

Are you looking for love coming into the show?

Yes I am!

Describe yourself in three words...

Fun, loud, partier.

What is the most surprising thing about you?

I guess that I work for a construction company and spend my days in a hard hat!

Describe your ideal date...

My ideal date would be a beautiful dinner in town followed by delicious cocktails then dancing the night away.

Describe our ideal partner and what qualities they'd have..

Funny and sarcastic! I need someone who makes me laugh, is hard working, adventurous and wants to travel.

Relationship deal-breakers?

Cheaters and someone with no goals in life, they need to be ambitious.


Someone who is funny, kind, romantic and a people person.


Someone rude, too into themselves, controlling and boring.
