A quick look through Gina Marcello’s collection of Instagram photos shows a woman consumed by her dog, boyfriend, card games and food with varying levels of nutritional value: Fruity Pebbles (check), Pringles (check), a green substance that may or may not be Jell-O (check).
So what’s the secret to how she manages to maintain her hour glass figure after all that food?
“I don’t really know because I don’t work out at all,” says the 22-year-old waitress at Murphy’s Law Irish Pub. “Maybe it’s because I am one of the most energetic people I know.”
We recently spent some time with Marcello and after seven super-energetic minutes, we’re a believer.
Do you get hit on a lot at work?
Umm… I’m a lady at a bar. What do you think? It’s actually pretty annoying, but I always appreciate a good compliment.
Is it mostly old creepy men or young obnoxious guys? Any women?
Oh, all three! Guys, girls, girls with boyfriends. Those are the most flattering
What is your favorite social networking site and how do we find you?
I have Twitter (@ginamarcello) and this app called Instagram, which is, unfortunately, just an iPhone thing. I hate Facebook and haven’t had one for a while now.
What do you do for fun?
Drink. Drink. Drink, and, uh, drink! With a whole ton of shopping mixed in there too. I spend A LOT of money. Also, if I’m not working, I’m constantly with my friends and I wouldn’t have that any other way. I have one of the best friends a person could ask for.
What’s your drink of choice?
Jameson! And I indulge anytime there’s a bottle around me!
During your cover shoot we had you pretty bare. What usually wear?
Well let’s just make sure readers know I wasn’t too bare. I had nipple covers on! But other than that I have a trendier little style to me. Obey is my favorite brand of clothing. I wear both men’s and woman’s clothes. I like to play dress up. That’s what being a girl is all about. You can find me one day in a dress and heels and the next day in an oversized tee with some combat boots on, which is always an awesome outfit.
What kind of music are you in to?
Literally everything but country. I can’t stand that shit.
Who’s your male flavor of the month?
No flavor of the month here. I have an all-time favorite that hasn’t changed and that would be my man Shia Labeouf.
What makes you melt?
When I’m sleeping and my boyfriend reaches his hand down in the middle of the night to hold mine. It makes me heart drop every time.
Have you kissed a girl or two? If so, was it drunk fun or do you enjoy kissing girls?
I’d say it’s mostly drunk fun. Hi mom.
What is your favorite tattoo?
If I could say my whole left arm I would, but since it’s not finished yet I have to say the tiny little heart that’s right under my left collar bone. It means something very special to me for a special someone.
