Federico Martone is a housemate from Big Brother 4.


He worked in a restaurant, Qua, which is owned by his father. He described himself as being "light-hearted" and "chappy," later adding that these are only a portion of his personality.

He's is a huge Juventus fan who admires Roberto Baggio and Halle Berry in equal measure. He used to work as a cocktail waiter in New York. His favourite film is Scarface and singer Darius Danesh makes him laugh.

Why Big Brother?: "Despite my best efforts to detach myself from such mainstream populist paraphernalia, I too have contracted this debilitating, possessive disease which renders its victims defenceless to the fascinating banality of normality!"

Post-Big Brother[]

Since leaving the house Federico has done various media related jobs, and went on to present his own radio show. He has also done modelling for a couple of Poker websites. He's written a column for the "Daily Record" in his native Scotland, where he says that the editor asked him to "write 'smart-arse' style columns, but my views aren't very smart so they're really just 'arse' columns". He's also done various bits of TV including RI:SE, Bo Selecta and Sky One's Top Ten Sexiest Women. He now works in his family's restaurants, Qua and Piazza Italia in Glasgow.
