Enjoyed this

I hate reality TV. I can’t get through one episode of Kardashians, Dance Moms, Survivor, Bachelor, any of those shows. I don’t like trash or contrived drama. So this one surprised me. It’s actually positive and there’s no fighting or drama. I clicked on it because I’m into sports documentaries now and I don’t know much about Ronaldo. Despite the obvious display of wealth and glamour, I kept watching because of a few things: 1) Gio’s genuine love for her family, 2) her rags to riches story, 3) her generosity and self awareness. Yes she’s super rich and likes nice things, which I’d normally find shallow. But she’s classy and elegant while being down to earth. I get the sense she just wants to enjoy the most out of the life she’s been given. Her realness shows through by the fact that she doesn’t hire a nanny, she won’t leave her children for more than 1 day, her friends are people she’s known for years and say she hasn’t changed, and she has the ability to charm people around her (to connect and relate, not manipulate). She uses the word amor a lot when describing her family and friends- she likes people and the warmth and joy they bring. Is she surrounded by yes men? In a way… but she also seems religious and comes across as positive and grateful. I think she’s cool, poised, mature, organic, and funny. Even though she might be a little full of herself, I think it’s necessary to be the supportive partner of the world’s greatest soccer player. Anyway, it was a fun show that surprised me. Give it a chance! Ciao!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Though not a rags-to-riches story, the rich lifestyle that Georgina finds herself living is unexpectedly slightly mundane. I Am Georgina needs more of Georgina herself, and not just throughout clips and talking heads. Being Cristiano Ronaldo's partner (something that the show constantly reminds us of) is already a niche interest to pull someone into watching a show.

We see beyond the surface of Georgina when she is interacting with her children and family; those parts are heartwarming. But the focus is more on the situations around her, and not enough on who she is beyond that. This show won't engage viewers aren't already fans of Georgina or Cristiano.
