  • Quotes

    • Gabrielle: G-Strings are the best piece of lingerie ever invented.

    • Gabrielle: I'll give anything a go if I'm asked nicely.

    • Gabrielle: Sex keeps me healthy and fit - after all it's the only exercise I get!

    • Gabrielle: (on "Celebrity Survivor") We didn't have deodorant or toothbrushes. You didn't exactly feel attractive! I actually made toothbrushes out of bamboo.

    • Gabrielle: I've never camped! I'm an anti-camper. I once did a photo shoot on Fraser Island and there's a lot of camping there. I just remember staying at a five star resort, going out to shoot on location and being like 'what are they all doing camping? I mean, what kind of vacation is that?!

    • Gabrielle: (on Australia's "Celebrity Survivor") I'm so spoilt, I'm such a princess. But at the same time, I know it – I don't take myself seriously. I know competing on Celebrity Survivor is going to be hard. But however long I'm in there for, it's a certain amount of days or weeks and then I go back to my real life – a suitcase full of toiletries and my nice place in LA. It's an experience that not everybody gets the opportunity to take up and I think we're all going to come off the island with something that's changed about us.

    • Gabrielle: I don't have a competitive bone in my body. I'm definitely not going to be seen as a threat. I think people on my team are going to look at me and realise I'm not capable of winning. But you never know. You just don't know how you're going to behave in an environment that you've never been in before.

    • Gabrielle: I thought Celebrity Survivor would actually be fun because it's so far removed from living in Hollywood. I'll miss my mum a lot though. I speak to her practically every day of my life. Not talking to her is going to be far more difficult than living without my toiletries!

    • Gabrielle: I love nudity. I'm always nude. When I was a little girl my mother would always have to dress me because I was quite good at taking my clothes off.

    • Gabrielle: (on appearing on Australia's "Celebrity Survivor") When I was asked, 'What's your idea of slumming it?', I said, 'Three-star hotel'. I am Lady Luxury.
