A politician has been left red-faced after his girlfriend revealed she’s only ever loved ugly men – moments after he announced their engagement.
Model Vicky Xipolitakis, 30, who hit the headlines last summer after she filmed herself in the cockpit of a plane during take-off, said her ‘greatest lovers were all ugly’.
Her 35-year-old politician Jose Ottavis, vice president of the Chamber of Deputies of the province of Buenos Aires, was humiliated by the model after the pair appeared on Argentinian television together.
Half-Greek Xipolitakis, who is 5ft 7.5 inches in height, is visibly taller than her partner, especially when wearing heels.
This has triggered a number of jokes from fans across social media who compare Ottavis with a dwarf.
Jose Ottavis revealed their engagement after going on set and said: “I was invited here because I am in love and I will get married.”
Xipolitakis talked about their relationship during the show as well, saying: “I fell deeply in love. He changed my life. I was never in love like this.
“Love won in front of prejudice.”
When asked about the jokes regarding her partner’s height, she replied: “My greatest lovers were all ugly.”
In 2015 Xipolitakis was filmed flying an aeroplane as it left the metropolitan city airport in Buenos Aires for the city of Rosario, in Santa Fe.
The pilot and co pilot broke international rules by letting an unauthorised person into the cabin.
The model shouted: “I’m going to accelerate and will take off” and pressing buttonsin the cabin as if she had been flying planes for years.
Meanwhile the pilots joke with her that she owns a bit of the plane because she is a tax payer and so is entitled to fly it.
The head of Aerolíneas Argentinas, for whom the two pilots worked, Patricio Zocchi Molina and Federico Matías Soaje worked, confirmed they had been fired as a result of their actions.
