Hardly anyone expected that: Tara Tabitha (28) is no longer part of the RTL show “I’m a star – get me out of here!”. The spectators voted against the Austrian, who was the first to be regularly banned from the jungle camp this year. In an interview with the news agency spot on news, she spoke about her experiences in the camp, about the background of her flirtation with Filip Pavlović (28) and revealed who is her favorite on the jungle crown.
Hello Tara, how are you?
Tara Tabitha: Yes, to be honest, it used to be better…
Almost all observers of the jungle camp were surprised that they had to go. How upset were you?
Tabitha: I really didn’t see it coming at all, so did everyone else on the show. We had thought in advance who could be kicked out. And I wasn’t on anyone’s radar.
Why do you think it happened like this?
Tabitha: So far I’ve only received some information that the public has seen. That’s a bit disappointing for me, unfortunately, because it wasn’t the whole story. But that’s how it is on TV…
Do you have anything specific in mind?
Tabitha: I was really well integrated, got on very well with many people and also formed friendships. For me it was a really sweet group, but I guess you didn’t see much of that.
Do you mean your flirtation with Filip Pavlovic? How did you perceive that?
Tabitha: I think the Filip thing came across as a bit one-sided. Which actually wasn’t quite the case…
Can you reveal details? Was there a show at the tech-mechtel?
Tabitha: It wasn’t a show at all from my point of view. We got along really well and spent a lot of time together. It was also originally from him.
Why didn’t it become more?
Tabitha: At first I had doubts as to whether that wasn’t too fast and I didn’t want to do a love story on TV either. It’s not a dating show. But I’ve decided that I’ll listen to my heart. A day later Filip got doubts. But we still get along very well.
Do you want to meet him privately after the end of the jungle camp?
Tabitha: Yes, sure. I’m looking forward to when he comes out. I like him very much and he likes me too. We will certainly remain very good friends.
Who do you think has chances for the jungle crown?
Tabitha: I would very much like either Filip or Linda to win. For both I stir the drum. I know Linda was difficult at times, but not at all with me. We got along really well. And Filip is a total team player who is considerate of everyone, holding himself back and caring. I would wholeheartedly give it to both of them.
What was the hardest hardship for you during your time in the jungle?
Tabitha: Of course the food. That was the worst. In the meantime I had real detox symptoms and puke urges. I didn’t eat anything for two days because otherwise I would have thrown up.
Did you imagine the jungle to be so hard?
Tabitha: I actually thought that you would get used to it after a few days. But the opposite was the case: I really detested the food.
