Men pull blank, girlfriends scold and Mario Basler comfortably blows the smoke of his fluppe into the Bocholt evening sky. Curtain up for the new chaos flat share!
What, another year over? We saw - at least felt - just yesterday Mola Adebisi, Mike Cees and Jana Pallaske in the "Summer House of the Stars". The bunks haven't been freshly made yet, and new guests are already arriving - all of them, of course, from A-list celebrities. Wonderful weeks are ahead of us! Days in which such highly poetic sentences fall as: "I wanted to marry you? I must have been full!" Or, "I'm always there for her, even when I poop."
Let's carefully approach the eight pairs. Mario Basler and his girlfriend Doris are starting this year. The ex-soccer professional doesn't want to marry her yet, but the two harmonize even without a marriage certificate. In addition, Doris usually knows where Basler's flops are! Both are real team players. So they are the first couple to move into the Bocholt-Butze, but wait until the very end with the bed selection, until the new staff is complete.
Every year the same question: Who are these people? But, wait a minute, you should already know the bachelor farmer Patrick and his Antonia, who say about themselves that they look "like Barbie and Ken"! Just like the 41-year-old DSDS Pfiffi Cosimo Citiolo, who has his Nathalie in tow. Cosimo is also a man of big words. First tell your loved one that the air in the country smells like "like when you fart sometimes".
One after the other, the newcomers arrive: Stephen Dürr and his wife Katharina, some Youtuber with his influencer girlfriend, who – of course – is known from Insta, as well as the great trash TV queen Kader Loth and her jeweler Ismet, called Isi. The YouTube couple in particular is wonderfully blasé: they say, in complete hubris, that they have no competition in the "summer house".
The new roommates sit comfortably on the veranda at the table where Georgina Fleur begged her "Kubi" for kisses and Roben's beet turned alarmingly red from the booze. Props for the RTL cutter: Basler feels like smoking in a tour. In the chaos, this always has such a calming and harmonious effect that, as a viewer, you can imagine that these scenes would have an epic character if they were accompanied by classical music.
Problem bears in Show 1: Eric Sindermann and his "Katha". The two had probably agreed in advance that the man, who allegedly already had "500 women", knows how to behave on TV. He wanted to be serious and polish up his current image. And what is the best way to do this? Right! By jumping naked in the pool and having the lady of your heart accompany you to the bathroom, where you ask her to imitate "wee-pee noises" or else you won't be able to pee. Of course, Eric's toilet curtain stays open, that's for sure.
The feelings between the inharmonious couple boil up very quickly. The first big tears soon flow, and the viewer immediately notices: their problems lie only slightly deeper than the Mariana Trench. "Katha", it is said, could be endured by Eric, although she is rich - he in turn thinks: "I've never had a woman who put me down like you did." In addition, there is "all the pressure" that the clever "Katha" is exposed to, because it turned out within a few minutes that Schatzi is an official "disgrace". Completely serious question: Doesn't that already say a look at his robe? But maybe this sight of poor "Katha" literally burned out her eyes long ago.
Everyone sniffs each other a bit, Dürr and his wife have the feeling that they "can't compete with the others" and one vain rooster crows louder through Wallachia than the other. Thank goodness a couple, the soccer player Sascha Mölders and his wife Yvonne, are moving in a little late and they can breathe a sigh of relief.
Kader apparently sleeps without having removed his make-up, Eric Sindermann wants to be funny, but again puts his foot in his mouth and DSDS-Cosimo finds in the height game that the world suddenly looks from above as "as if it were round". At some point on this beautiful second day, von Loth offered free therapeutic advice for Sindermann's "Katha". Under no circumstances should she allow herself to be "instrumentalised" and "humiliated in public" by a poorly dressed man running around with a crown on his head. So trusts the disgraced Dr. Kader and reveals that Eric "broke it up because I said I'm not doing this".
Such Sindermann pods fall like: "If we go into the summer house, we will live off it for the rest of our lives". It's no wonder that the girlfriend wants to "tear her sweetheart's ass so sick" given such a lack of reality.
According to the mood barometer, the Dürrs would have to go after the first episode. There is mostly disharmony, but that doesn't matter, because there are enough butts there. The best contribution during the high game, which at the same time probably speaks from the heart of most couples, comes from Mario Basler: "Can we give up? I'm dying!"
