The 16th season of “I’m a star – get me out of here!” has not yet started. about a week away (from January 13 on RTL and RTL+). It’s even a little longer before the first disgust test. Nevertheless, the mental cinema about the mostly animal and/or culinary challenges in the camp already causes the first tears in one of the participants.

Influencer Jolina Mennen posted a video on Instagram showing her horrified on the floor of her hotel room. But what caused the panic moment and the teary eyes?

Apparently, the 30-year-old worries that she might be confronted with her greatest fear in the jungle. “I have a completely irrational phobia and some prankster told the production about it and I was just asked about it, even though I wanted to keep it a secret.”

What phobia does Jolina Mennen have?

Although the cat has apparently long been out of the bag in terms of production, Mennen does not reveal in her clip which phobia it is. The selection in the RTL jungle camp is traditionally high: snakes, spiders, worms, height, darkness – or the tried and tested kangaroo testicles? Since Mennen spoke of a “completely irrational phobia”, it should not be one of these understandable fears.

In the story that follows, Mennen makes it clear that she doesn’t accuse any employee of the show of wanting “something bad” for her. She simply “underestimated how much such a format can trigger emotionally in me”.

This year the jungle camp will be filmed again in Australia after it had to take place in South Africa in 2022 due to Corona. In addition, Jan Köppen brings a breath of fresh air into the jungle, he takes over the moderation from Daniel Hartwich. Together with Sonja Zietlow he presents the popular reality show 2023. Jungle camp doctor Dr. Bob is at it again. Other candidates include singer Lucas Cordalis, actress Jana Pallaske and trash TV macho Luigi “Gigi” Birofio.
