Marco Gallo rose to fame during his stint in the Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7. After the reality show’s airing, Marco was given the opportunity to pursue a showbiz career. To add more to the glitter, he was paired with fellow PBB Housemate, Kisses Delavin. The KissMarc team-up was being build up as one of the next big pairs to watch out for, alongside their friends Maymay Entrata and Edward Barbers.
However, Marco was burned out with the workload and demands of showbiz. He began feeling lonely, thinking that he is wasting too much of his teenage life by spending most of his time at work. His friends, including Maymay and Edward, became too busy as well and the lack of bonding time has made him miss his friends back home.
In July 2018, Marco decided to leave the country and go back to his roots in Italy instead. Far from the showbiz limelight he experienced in the Philippines, Marco’s life in Italy was nothing but normal.
He had to look for a job and waited for at least a month before he was able to get one. Marco began working as a waiter. He admitted having a hard time adjusting again to the normal life he desired for. While serving food for the guests, Marco is often occupied with thoughts like, “Ganito na lang ba kaya ko?” He was always contemplating about his life and future.
It didn’t take long until a Filipina, who owns a modeling agency in Italy, spotted Marco. He was asked to continue the career he started in the Philippines by working as a model.
