REALITY TV babe Elettra is one of the latest stunners to join the Geordie Shore cast.
But just who is the girl that has been dubbed “The Italian Killer” and why is she making headlines?
Who is Elettra Lamborghini?
As the surname suggests, Elettra is a descendant of Ferruccio Lamborghini (yes, that Lamborghini).
She rose to prominence as a social media star in her native Italy.
The super car heiress was even labelled the “Italian Paris Hilton”.
What TV shows has Elettra appeared in?
After her notorious Instagram selfies and lavish selfies made headlines, she was cast in MTV’s Super Shore.
Super Shore is the Spanish version of Geordie Shore and follows nine international 20-somethings as they party around the south of Europe, most frequently in Madrid, Spain and Mykonos, Greece.
The success of the series led to Elettra gracing the cover of Playboy Italia.
Despite coming from the car manufacturing family, Elettra has no interest in joining the family business, telling Quién: “I don’t work, but with respect to everyone who works, I have things I need to do, things that have to do with my figure and something in fashion.”
Why is she known as “The Italian Killer”?
During the first series of the show, Elettra revealed she was known by most as the “the Italian killer.”
When asked why, she responded: “Because I fight with everyone.”
Which is exactly what happened as she came to blows with her cast mates throughout the shocking series.
Elettra later found herself being praised by fans after the rest of the girls targeted her over her weight.
She explained in an interview: “The girls told me that with all the money I had could get a lipo, but I’m not like Manelyk González (a Super Shore cast-mate), who are all operated.
“I am a girl of the most natural and prefer the sport.”
Why is Elettra controversial?
Elettra often courts controversy with her outrageous outfit choices
Elettra first appeared in the British press earlier this month when she appeared at the MTV EMAs last month wearing a see-through bodysuit with rhinestone nipple covers.
She also caused a stir in Spain the only castmember of the spin-off shows not to have sex on camera, proclaiming: “To have good sex passion is needed, and get that in a single night holiday is very difficult.”
