As the winner of the casting show “Germany’s Next Topmodel” 2021, Alex Mariah Peter is not only in great demand in the fashion and advertising world, but also as an influencer on social media. So far, she has said little about her life as a trans woman and her past. With an appearance in the ZDF format “13 questions” she now wanted to change that. But the shoot came to an abrupt and disappointing end – Alex had to stop it at short notice, as reported by “Bunte”..

In the format of the public service broadcaster, people with different opinions should meet and argue and debate respectfully with each other. The main topics are up-to-date, the goal is to convince the other side.

While shooting the episode, Alex was supposed to talk about her experiences with the transsexual law and the planned self-determination law of the traffic light coalition. The current procedure for changing civil status for transgender people is not only expensive, but also very lengthy. The model had to pay 7,500 euros as the amount in dispute.

Alex Mariah Peter wanted to protect himself

In a seven-minute video on Instagram, Alex now explains why she had to stop shooting. She found the other side insensitive – the whole process was “incredibly humiliating” for her. She says that she was expected to talk about personal situations and when she reported about the sexual violence she had experienced, the other side reacted incomprehensibly: “The tenor was that I had to swallow it and it wasn’t about me .”

However, she also said she doesn’t want to personally attack any of the show’s contestants and that she knows the format she’s gotten herself into. But with every sentence she became more emotional and with every minute she realized that she had to protect herself.
