Helena Fürst and Ennesto Monté
A fast forward relationship or is it all fake? The relationship between ex-jungle star Helena Fürst and singer Ennesto Monté, which lasted only a few months, made headlines.

"We have completely different visions of how a relationship should work," said Benjamin Boyce in an RTL interview. Kate Merlan said something similar: "I think we were just too different".

For the ex-couple it was enough for fifth place in the “Summer House of the Stars”.
Willi Herren and Jasmin Herren

But their love wasn't the only one that failed. The rival couple, Chris Broy and Eva Benetatou, split in April 2021. Broy's participation in "Battle of the Reality Stars" was to blame.
