At the end of the ninth live show of “Let’s Dance”, Bastian Bielendorfer and Ekaterina Leonova were chosen from the show. With their freestyle mix of rumba, tango, slow fox and contemporary, they were no longer able to win the hearts of the audience and the jury. Joachim Llambi even judged: “We are already in the round of sixteen with the best six dancers. The final is in three weeks. The right ones have to be in the final. I found today’s performance very simply structured. Unfortunately, it was sometimes as stiff as it was last week.”
In an interview with RTL The comedian then emphasized: “My God, I can’t dance, you don’t have to pretend.” He even described the fact that he almost made it to the finals of a dance show as “completely absurd”. He was all the more happy about the friendship that developed between him and his dance partner. “It may sound stupid, but we really grew together over time,” he said. The two will therefore keep in touch. Now he spoke up again on the subject and spoke plainly.

The comedian finally reached out to his community because he “gets so many questions about ‘Let’s Dance'”. First he stated that he was fine after his show-off: “I’m totally happy, everything is wonderful.” He is already looking forward to many new projects. Finally he came to speak of the professional dancer and said with a wink:
“Now I have a few days off. Ekat has to get along without me, it’s bitter for her, she must miss me badly. We’ve become really good friends, we really like each other, we haven’t had sex. That may surprise some, I mean, it’s hard not to jump on me, I can understand that. But Ekat just barely contained himself.”

Looking at his wife, Bastian then said in clear words: “She’s known me for many years and jealousy doesn’t play a role with us. It’s actually none of your business either, Hold on tight, everything is fine with Basti and his wife. Besides, I think Ekat has goals other than being the fat man with the rumba hip.”
Not much is known about Bastian Bielendorfer’s private life. He met and fell in love with his wife during his studies. In conversation with the Channel By the way, he said: “Some people only became known for holding their children up for the camera or marketing their partners or whatever. I learned very early on that I would never do that.”
The 15th season of “Let’s Dance” ends in two weeks and it can already be said that the performances by “Ninja Warrior” winner and circus artist René Casselly are among the absolute highlights of this year’s edition. Alongside professional dancer Kathrin Menzinger, he not only shows week after week that there is a dancer in him, but also regularly amazes the jury and the audience with top acrobatic performances.
