Former Pinoy Big Brother housemate and Internet sensation Rita “Badjao Girl” Gaviola was spotted during the recent Starstruck audition at the GMA Network.
Photos of Gaviola have been posted online.
“Nakasabay ko sa audition ng #Starstruck, Rita Gaviola,” a Facebook user captioned the photo he posted.
In May 2016, Gaviola became an instant Internet star when photographer Topher Guinto Burgos snapped a beautiful photo of her while she was wandering along a street.
“‘Beauty slayer’. Photo walk at Lucban Pahiyas. Nakita lang namin siya nanghihingi ng barya, kapatid natin mga Badjao na may angking ganda,” read the caption of Burgos’ photos.

Since then, she had been doing guestings and modelling projects; aiming to fulfil her dreams and give her family a better life.
She recently shared a vlog about their new house.
