The fifth season of the RTL show "Das Sommerhaus der Stars - Kampf der Promipaare" starts on September 9th. Eight new couples move into a modest house in Bocholt and fight for the title "The Celebrity Couple 2020". But be careful, there seems to be a separation curse on the RTL show. Some celebrity couples from previous seasons have already gone their separate ways after filming.
Angelina Heger and Rocco Stark
Ex-"Bachelor" candidate Angelina Heger, today Angelina Pannek, and actor Rocco Stark split up before the first "summer house" episode had flickered across the screens. The two got together in January 2016, five months later it was all over again. "It's very difficult for me to share that today, but unfortunately we finally broke up," Stark said at the time via Facebook. "Rocco and I have decided to go our separate ways with immediate effect," confirmed Heger. They finished last in Season 1 of The Stars Summer Home.
Xenia Princess of Saxony and Rajab Hassan
Xenia Princess of Saxony and Rajab Hassan were able to win the first "summer house" season, but their love didn't last either. The couple split up about six months after their victory. "Yes, we broke up, but we remain friends and colleagues," said the 34-year-old. Their relationship lasted around seven years and they have a son together.
Chris Töpperwien and Magey Kalley
The marriage of Chris Töpperwien and Magdalèna "Magey" Kalley lasted another two years after participating in the RTL show. They placed third in the first season. The currywurst man had met the musical actress in the USA, and the wedding followed in 2014. The ex-couple was also regularly seen on the emigrant show "Goodbye Germany". In September 2018 they finally announced their marriage.
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. Even before the second "summer house" season was broadcast, they officially announced their separation. After all, the couple made it to second place.
Nico Hahn and Saskia Atzerodt
First place was secured in the second season by model Nico Schwartz and former "Bachelor" candidate Saskia Atzerodt. The two even got engaged right after their triumph. But instead of wedding bells, there were accusations. The separation followed shortly afterwards. "The love of the two was put to the test in the house and then went out," said a statement from management. Their love only lasted a year.
Martin and Sonja Semmelrogge
Acting star Martin Semmelrogge and his wife Sonja had been married for almost 20 years when they took part in the second season in 2017. The couple, who have a daughter together, split shortly after the show. The two took last place. Then came the shock in August 2018: Sonja Semmelrogge died at the age of only 54.
Aurelio Savina and Lisa Freidinger
They had big plans: ex-"Bachelorette" candidate Aurelio Savina and Lisa Freidinger. After her sixth place finish in season two, she got engaged and entered the hospitality industry. But her Munich restaurant "Comera" had to close for financial reasons. In June 2018, the two finally made their separation public.
Bert Wollersheim and Bobby Anne Baker
The viewers realized pretty quickly in the third season of 2018 that this love cannot last: Even in the "Summer House of the Stars" there was a lot of bad mood between Bert Wollersheim and Bobby Anne Baker. The two had only started dating a few months before the show. "The short time we had was harmonious, but then it wasn't so harmonious in the summer house. There was also a verbal one from life," explained Wollersheim after moving out. The two had to leave the "summer house" as the first couple.
Micaela Schäfer and Felix Steiner
Even between Micaela Schäfer and Felix Steiner, shreds often flew in the show. A short time later they went their separate ways. "We broke up right after the 'summer house'," explained the erotic model. The reason is their different views and behavior in public. The two have been a couple since December 2015. In "Summer House" they took fifth place.
Patricia Blanco and Nico Gollnick
There was no happy ending for Patricia Blanco and Nico Gollnick. The daughter of the singer Roberto Blanco was only in a relationship with the entrepreneur for several months. "So my dears, I would like to inform you that Nico and I are going our separate ways from now on," the 49-year-old turned to her fans. Unfortunately, in the end it turned out that "we don't complement each other as well as we initially hoped," Blanco tried to explain the reasons for the separation. The two met and fell in love in a Berlin champagne bar at the end of 2017 and dared the great adventure "Summer House of the Stars" in 2018. They took fourth place on the RTL show.
Benjamin Boyce and Kate Merlan
Benjamin Boyce and Kate Merlan revealed before the fifth episode of season four aired that it had broken up two months after filming wrapped. "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". In the "Summer House of the Stars" she had repeatedly had the impression that the relationship no longer made sense. The singer and the model have been in a relationship since the summer of 2018. In "Summer House" 2019 they reached sixth place.
Johannes Haller and Yeliz Koc
At the end of December 2019, the separation of "Bachelorette" participant Johannes Haller and "Bachelor" candidate Yeliz Koc became known. In March 2020, they gave their relationship another chance. At the beginning of May 2020, the couple separated again. "I know it's really over this time," Koc said at the time. For the ex-couple it was enough for fifth place in the “Summer House of the Stars”.
Willi Herren and Jasmin Herren
Haller's "summer house" archenemy Willi Herren also had a relationship crisis after the show. In December 2019, he and his wife Jasmin announced their separation after 17 years together. The great love comeback followed in February 2020: "We can tell you with joy and love: Jasmine & Willi are back," wrote the party singer for a picture shared with his wife on Instagram. They took fourth place in the "Summer House of the Stars".
