Rizk was born in Beirut, she won Miss Lebanon title in the year 1970, she had competed in the 1970 Miss World competition, but did not place. Prior to coming to Florida to compete in the Miss Universe Pageant, Georgina Rizk was told by a local fortune teller in Lebanon that she would be travelling to a far away land and that she would become very successful and famous. Soon after Georgina Rizk ran to Florida and came back with the title of Miss Universe 1971. She was crowned in the Miss Universe pageant in 1971 in Miami Beach, Florida, USA. She was the first woman from the Middle East and the fourth woman from Asia to win the title. In the pageant she made a memorable fashion statement by wearing a very revealing top and hotpants.
In the 1972 Miss Universe pageant in Dorado, Puerto Rico, Rizk was not allowed to attend due to government restrictions because of fears of a terrorist attack. These fears were triggered when, two months prior to the pageant, bombings occurred outside the hotel in which Miss USA, Tanya Wilson, was then staying. Lebanon also did not send a delegate to the pageant that year.

Georgina was married in 1976 to Ali Hassan Salameh, a Palestinian national with Black September, who was assassinated in 1979 by the Mossad.
