He explains: “Every person who enters the production site is tested regularly. Those involved must undergo a PCR test every five days. In addition, antigen tests are carried out regularly.”

“The entire crew has been vaccinated”

The vaccination is also intended to protect those involved: “The entire jungle camp crew has been vaccinated twice, most of them have also been boosted”, so rendezvous For data protection reasons, the broadcaster is not allowed to say whether this is also the case with the celebrities. In general, however, there is no obligation to vaccinate the participants.

Nevertheless, RTL is confident: “Thanks to the close exchange with experts, we are optimally prepared for all unexpected developments or corona cases,” says Rendez. After the production was on the brink again this year, the anticipation now outweighs: “After a year's break, everyone involved is happy and grateful to be able to produce the jungle camp again in 2022 in a sensational natural setting.”

Jasmin Herren replaces Christin Okpara

A good week before the start of the season, the prominent cast was changed again. Ex-“Are You The One?” candidate Christin Okpara (25) should actually move into the jungle camp.

The candidate will be replaced by Jasmin Herren (43), the widow of entertainer Willi Herren. The singer has apparently traveled to South Africa as a substitute candidate and should now be happy about her upcoming entry into the jungle camp.
