Christina Salgado is a star. Her fiery personality and stunning looks will make her the center of attention on the upcoming season of Bad Girls Club: Cabo, which premiers July 9 on Oxygen. But while the Puerto Rican/Brazillian beauty is enjoying all of the attention she’s been getting from the show, dudes hoping to bag her should think twice before giving aspiring model the star treatment when they see her out. Fresh off the plane from LA, the Jersey City, NJ representative talked to XXLmag.com about her time on the show, her relationship with her fellow cast mates and why she prefers guys who give her a “challenge.” – Calvin Stovall (@calvinstovall)

XXLMag.com: Why’d you decide to go on The Bad Girls Club?

Christina Salgado: My whole thing is I was already trying to model before. And I just felt like going on this show where they have like thousands of viewers, and I know this show is big and it’s helped some of the other girls. So, I was like, “You know what? Let me send in my pictures and see what they say.”

And what did they say?

They just loved me from the start. They sent me to LA, so I decided to go out and do the show. Because then it opens doors. So that’s basically why I did it. I wanted to model, I wanted to be on TV, I wanted to kind of get noticed and be in the scene and be on the night scene and meet a lot of different people. So I thought it’d just kind of be a good move for me to do.

Are you happy with how the experience went?

I feel like so far, so good. I just came back from LA today. I just spoke to the producers, and they’re trying to still put me on projects and still call me out to do more commercials. So I’m like, “OK, it’s kind of working out, you know?”

How was Cabo? Mexico is kind of crazy right now.

Most of the Bad Girls Clubs they never filmed outside of the U.S. So this was big, and on top of that, we’re in a whole ‘nother place. So you know we’re acting a fool. You’re like, “I don’t know nobody here, these people are so different from me.” So the club scene was definitely a hot mess, we were dressing any way we wanted. I mean, Mexico was hot.

You take anybody home from the clubs?

The guys, we weren’t so much feeling the guys. If you get a dude who actually knows how to speak English over there, it’s some little corny tourist dude. Some of the girls got thirsty, they would bring wack dudes home. I wasn’t beat, I didn’t need to be hungry like that… I didn’t have to (have sex) I’m not thirsty. I’m probably one of the better looking chicks on the show. They were bringing home the most crustiest niggas and they were so suped about it.

What did you do when you got approached out there?

I just use it for what it’s worth at that point. But not to the point where they’re coming home.

What’s it worth? A couple drinks?

Yeah, that’s it. There was even one night I got like $160, that’s definitely gonna make an episode. I just got a dude for what it’s worth. You’re not coming home with me, you don’t have what it takes. I’m good, I’m not that thirsty. Thanks for the drink, thanks for the champagne and the money, goodbye. But the other girls were so worried about bringing the dudes home and showing the camera like, “look, I got a dude to come home.” Like, really? (Laughs)

You let dudes trick off like that in real life, too?

If I’m not feeling you, and I know more likely than not I’m never gonna see you again, I’m good. You wanna show off? I’ll let you show off. Spend your money, go ahead. Make yourself feel good for the night because I’m definitely not gonna talk to you again. I’ll let you feel like a man, though.

But you don’t do that to dudes you’re actually interested in.

That’s different, though. That’s where I’ll respect them a little bit more and I’m not really trying to play them at this point. I’m like, “OK, you can get me a drink. I’ll probably get you the next one.” Cause I’m not like that, I don’t need to gold dig.

What kind of dude will you get the next one for?

I’m not even gonna say it’s about looks and how much money you have. You just can’t seem desperate, you can’t be thirsty. Give me my little bit of attention, but fall back a little bit, have confidence in yourself, don’t be all over me. Because at the same time, I’m a really pretty girl so you’re one of the many dudes that are gonna be thirsty for me. But if you show me that you’re not, it’s kind of like, “Oh damn, well who are you? Why are you not so thirsty right now? Hold up.” So give me a tiny bit of a challenge.

They’re billing you as a star this season.

I feel like, for the most part, I might be somewhat of a little star on the show. There were like one or two other girls that were kind of getting their shine, but at least I’m kind of in that category right now. So I’m kind of happy about that. Some of the girls fell towards the back.

What makes a reality star?

You can’t be in the background. It’s sad, but you only have limited camera time. The camera isn’t gonna be there forever, you’re filming for but so long. So you need to take that shine whenever you can get it. So for me, I barely sit home, I don’t let anyone punk me out, I did my thing, I always look good on TV. I feel like they know what it is (laughs). As conceited as that sounds.

How did you get along with the other Bad Girls?

Of course there was a lot of fights, cause there’s seven girls in one house and we don’t know each other, we don’t have our cell phones, we don’t have TV. I feel like they were a little thirsty for attention. They got a little ratchet, they tried to start problems. They were trying to like, rain on my parade because I was always looking good, I was always going out. They tried to come in my face with problems, but I flipped it and I turned around being really tough on top of that. You gave me more camera time and more shine, so that’s what I’m the star for. Cause I wasn’t taking no one’s shit.

Where did you get that “no-shit taking” attitude?

I live in Jersey City. It’s a little hood. It depends where you grow up. I grew up with an all Puerto Rican family, kind of a little ghetto. But fortunately for me, I didn’t come out looking ratchet— I’m a very attractive woman and I know how to carry myself. So I guess people tend to get it twisted and go, “Look, another pretty girl to mess with,” and then I just turn around and flip it like that. And they’re like, “Wow, it’s like a whole ‘nother person.” I’m like— what do you call that— a ticking time bomb? I’m just waiting to pop off on someone who messes with me. So every time it would happen (in the house) I would just pop off. And it got to the point that girls were not even trying (to mess with me) anymore.

You ever have to pop off on any dudes?

No. I’ll get him back in my little ways, but I will not pop off because he will beat my ass! I’m not that stupid (laughs).

What are your ways for getting them back?

Like, OK, you wanna be cute? If I feel like he did something enough to the point where I need to hit him trying to hurt him, I’ll probably just crush his pride. Be seen around with another dude and make him feel stupid. Because, obviously if I wanna hit him, it’s cause he did something he shouldn’t have been doing.

What’s your love life like right now?

Well, I’m young. I have my guys, I’m doing my thing. But I feel as though I don’t need any guy right now. It’s not like I’m gold digging anyone, it’s not like I’m relying on a man. I’m just doing my thing. Along the way I see guys here and there, mess around a little bit, but it’s nothing serious for me. I’m not really even worried about them at this point. This is my shine point, I’m waiting for my show to come out I’m not really worried about them right now.

When it finally does come out you’re gonna have a lot of dudes coming at you.

Yeah, it’s gonna be even worse. I’ve always had guys, but I know after this and once I hit the club scene and I start showing up to places, it’s gonna be crazy. But I’m ready for that and I just gotta like get away from these thirsty ass dudes now (laughs)… It’s definitely gonna change, though. Cause, after you’re on a show— especially a show like that— you get noticed. People start to talk about you. They know who you are when you walk down the street. So, it’s gonna be different. It’s gonna be a different club scene for me now, it’s gonna be different going outside. My Twitter’s already different. I don’t get any mentions from any of my friends or family. It’s like, straight fans all day… It already started, just because of one little preview that they showed on TV for the new season.

      How’se her pussy taste w/ yo clit riding self ? You’re really catching feelings cuz i aint write some thirsty msg to your homegirl ? You lame as shit for that one. Your homegirl just dont move me. # deal w/ it hoe.

  • todd

    “Jewelz”, we admire your passion & loyalty, but who’s going to respect your opinion when your grammar is horrid?
    (I’m just saying, for future reference….)
    As for Christina, she’s attractive, I guess. But I saw the trailers & I have to agree w. George & John.
    The yelling & the hitting doesnt come off as “tough”, I see insecurity & hunger for attention
    (the 15 min of fame perhaps?)
    I wish her good luck though, in whatever she’s pursuing.

  • jenn

    THIS GIRL IS TALKING TOO MUCH ABOUT THIRST WHEN SHE IS REALLY THE THIRSTY ONE TRYING TO BE FAMOUS OFF THIS SHOW IS NOT GOING TO GET HER NOWHERE BECAUSE SHE IS KNOWN AS TRASH ALREADY, GOOD LUCK TO HER, AND SHE IS UGLY, SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN. WAS THIS THE CHICK THAT WAS A MAN BUT THEN GOT THE SEX CHANGE? PEOPLE NEED TO STOP SOUPING HER HEAD UP. SHE IS TRASH & WILL NEVER MAKE IT FAR.

  • Rob

    It is sad to say that this girl is just hungry for attention. If she was modeling before, she probably would have been scouted somewhere but for her to come on this disgusting show just to get “fame” for a while is worthless. A couple of my friends know this girl, and supposably this is all an act that she is pursuing, she was never like this nor is she EVEN BRAZILIAN. I dont understand why she has to lie to “try” to get famous. She is clearly making herself look bad and not classy. Good luck to her but she will definitely not make it after this. There is no chances for her of ever being welcomed as a good person. She is simply fake. It is quite sad.

  • EriCa

    Not for nothing, she is an alright looking girl, but she is not beautiful, her personality makes her completely ugly and i agree with Rob and Jenn, she is setting herself up for failure by trying to “be an aspiring model”…no one is going to want to look at her or deal with her unclassy behavior. She needs to go back to college and actually be a role model for her children in the future or younger girls. This is disgusting what the world is coming to now that these females need “attention” or to be “famous” over this type of show? Sick world. People DO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF TRUE BEAUTY now a days.

  • marvin

    For all the haters: simply by commenting you disprove your arguments.If something leaves a sour taste in your mouth we usually spit it out but all i see is stupid immature fag-ass comment idiots.making them selves choke on their on drool subconsciously you know shes fine as a priceless diamond.. for further comments i can be reached anytime in Newark or your nearest park punk.!!.

  • Jameel

    Marvin, the truth hurts huh? Sorry if your homegirl is not as fine as a diamond. lol. tough luck brah. The chick aint bad, get over it. I have seen 1000000x better. Shes just another hoodrat in the world trying to get famous. The world is definitely coming to an end.

  • Gloria

    I think this christina girl is actually gorgeous and flawless in the face… The show may do her no justice but her looks def will and if she is already being featured in magazines then yea……

  • Monica

    diffrent people, different taste

  • Yoli

    Beautiful. She will go far.

  • Yenny

    Sad to say i knew this girl from high school, and she is turning her life into a negative way. Yes, she may have fans, but how does the world percieve her? As a bad girl? Not a good look for an alright female trying to make it. She should have joined another reality tv show if anything but definitely not trashy BGC. And as i can recall, she was quiet in highschool, and never got into any fights. perhaps she is putting up an act? i believe so. and i agree with the gentleman before me, she is not brazilian at all lol. But either way good luck to her. She should just be herself. Thats the only way she will get far. But i doubt it. The media has brainwashed females.

  • newark

    Is this chick serious , i know her and her sister , these 2 girl are the biggest jump off , easy to smash ,

  • http://xxlmag.com Melany

    yall are haters. shes sexy and dont let nodody push her around. she has every right to be consided lol

    • chris

      conceited*
      wow.

  • Teema

    Melany learn how to spell before defending a piece of trash lol. NOBODY* CONCEITED*. And nobody is hating, i agree with the comments above, girl is thirsty for attention. I am no hater, truth be told. Wipe all the make up off this chicks face and then lets talk. Pure trash from New Jersey. Just by looking at her u can tell she is a low life thirsty hoodrat. Shame Shame.

  • barbie

    pretty girls are always hated …. go head girl

  • lamar

    This girl has a gorgeous face I can stare at her all day … Shes probably not the most beautiful woman ive ever seen but she sure is gorgeous

  • Poopz

    Know this girl and her sister Stephanie.. definitely Jerseys smuts, but hey what can you say, normal thing for a girl nowadays. But i agree with my dude lamar, pretty girl, but not the most beautiful like she thinks she is. Wipe all that cake off her face, bet these niggas wont think shes a good look, plus she has a nasty personality. Better luck next time Crissy.

  • lamar

    poopz you def dont agree with me… why all the pretty girls get called smuts? that shits wack homie. This girl is gorgeous but like i said ive seen more beautiful in my opinion.. Ill still stare at christina all day long tho

  • banks

    she’s cute, I think she has a simple seductive look

  • lara

    i liked her at 1st, but after watching some vids & reading this….she kinda sucks :/

  • Emanuel

    i’m impressed by this girl. she seems to keep it real and not put up with any type of disrespect (just as she said). we all have to consider the fact that this is the “bad girls club” not the “miss usa” pageant. so of course.. the girls that they cast will need to be out of their minds.. slutty.. or fighting divas. it’s the nature of the show, and that’s what keeps it running. i’m a fan of christina already. and i agree with many of you, she is flawless in the face. so modeling might be her next move!

  • hugo

    I guess nowadays putting on tight dresses, stilettos & cake makeup passes for being “flawless” huh? LOL

  • nariboo

    she is most definately my favorite im just now reading this and and the show already started i said from the beginning that i like her she is not on the bully bull-shit she a pretty girl but she fight when she feels disrespected she is hands down the realist this season

    I always watch “ratchet” reality tv shows like BCG because
    they are entertaining. They are my guilty pleasure. I never support any of the
    fools on these shows though. I found BCG 9 hilarious and Christina seemed like
    a GOOD A—ACTRESS TO ME! Christina only fought people who she knew couldn’t
    fight, and in her audition tape and in the first episode she said that she wasn’t
    going to “go on to the show to fight” because she didn’t feel like she had to
    and wasn’t that type of person. Something was just not right. It’s not like she
    can’t fight, it was just she “beat people up” who were weak. Also, she had low self-esteem and never got
    any dudes trying to hit on her. She expressed this with Falen! She fights with
    her ex-boyfriend on the show… she’s full of it. Again, I applaud her comical
    acting, her punch lines were swift and what she said about the girls was true,
    but I don’t buy it. Funny how she never had problems with Erica and Mehgan. BTW, she’s average/cute, not beautiful or gorgeous. She doesn’t look like this without photoshop.

  • Stace

    Christina seems way too into herself.
    She always feels the need to mention how attractive or how beautiful she is.
    Sorry Christina but you only look good in your fixed up photos.
    On the bad girls club you didn’t really stand out in appearance. You looked
    regular, or okay nothing special.
    I really do Christina may be lacking in confidence.
    Because if you constantly have to talk about how pretty you are,
    maybe in reality you are trying to compensate for something.

  • oscar

    most of these guys cant get with a girl half as good to christina or even talk to her
