In the season 16 finale of "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!" Djamila Rowe (55) was named the new jungle queen on Sunday. On Monday evening, RTL (also on RTL) showed "The Great Reunion". First, the new queen of the jungle was welcomed by moderator duo Sonja Zietlow (54) and Jan Köppen (39). At first everything seemed to be going relatively harmoniously, but at some point the mood boiled up.
Winner Djamila initially sat at the table with second-placed Luigi "Gigi" Birofio (23) and third-placed Lucas Cordalis (55). The jungle queen explained that she stumbled onto the show "without a plan" or "preparation", after all she had stepped in for actor Martin Semmelrogge (67), who was unable to enter Australia. According to Djamila, she is authentic and has remained herself. That might have convinced people in the end. Gigi, on the other hand, showed different facets. "It felt good to let it out," explained the reality TV actor. He would appreciate everything more now.
Lucas had a goal at the beginning, "but no plan". While Zietlow claimed to have seen little new from him, Daniela Katzenberger's (36) husband explained that he also had weak moments. Of course, the stranger drama of his in-laws Iris (55) and Peter Klein (63) was also addressed. But Lucas reacted diplomatically and asserted that he wanted harmony. But so far he has only marginally noticed everything, according to the singer.
Jana "Urkraft" Pallaske (43) and singer Markus Mörl (63) both had to leave relatively early. Jana enjoyed the time outside the camp - as did Markus. "I would have liked to have taken part in one or the other jungle test," said the 63-year-old. He stayed with himself, but should have stepped on the gas, so his summary. But maybe he was also the haven of peace in the jungle. Because according to Köppen, the arguments started after he left.
Verena Kerth (41) does not know why she surprisingly had to go first. But of course there was one topic in focus: your engagement to Marc Terenzi (44). Planning is the order of the day, says Verena. But they still want to say yes in 2023, "otherwise it won't be anything again". Claudia Effenberg (57) explained that Gigi in particular surprised her. But the Bolognese gate was not allowed to fall under the table. The 57-year-old was "very relieved" when it came out. Cecilia Asoro (26), on the other hand, asserted that they were "not shocked" by the blasphemy attacks of the two. She "never warmed up" to Verena, the two together were "a disaster" for her. "I knew that Claudia offends and blasphemes."
Even Gigi did not hold back his opinion about Verena and Claudia. The two would have been very good together. "Both blond, the laugh was a good fit too." He also sticks to it "that Verena wasn't Verena". He finds Claudia "exhausting". Cecilia also took a position on her arguments with model Tessa Bergmeier (33). "If we were locked up, it would happen again." Because they just have different views.
Cosimo Citiolo (41) said he didn't think "it would be that hard". Above all, he missed the food and his girlfriend. The "Checker vom Neckar" no longer wanted to talk about the dispute with Jolina Mennen (30). They would have already "clarified" that. But then suddenly Cecilia intervened and talked about an incident in the hotel. "The way he spoke to Djamila's companion was disrespectful," she railed against Cosimo. He knew exactly what she was talking about. "It was awful, also how you talked to the people behind the camera." Papis Loveday (46) also stated that Cosimo behaved disrespectfully in the hotel. "He's a fat, big baby." Meanwhile, Cosimo pulled away. But later he came back and apologized to the RTL production.
Papis, on the other hand, got a special present from Köppen: his blue shirt. The model is even working on her own collection, as he revealed. Djamila immediately stated that she wanted to keep in touch with daddies. "I will definitely see one or the other again," said the jungle queen. Djamila showed a side of the jungle that nobody knew before - a vulnerable one. Nevertheless, she likes to show the men "where to go". In the jungle, however, she "cried every day", it was "therapy for my soul".
Especially Cosimo had to fight during the reunion. "I want to go now," he said after a flashback of arguments at camp. Jolina explained that she swore to Cosimo not to talk about the argument anymore. But then the atmosphere boiled up again. Because Jolina found out that Cosimo had blasphemed about her in an interview. "You're stabbing me in the back like a fake snake," she scolded. Cosimo, on the other hand, stated that he had never offended anyone. Of course, the difficult relationship between Gigi and Lucas was also looked at again. "Lucas didn't show his real face in the jungle," said the 23-year-old again. Gigi, on the other hand, has “a friendship” with Cosimo. However, he also hinted that he had learned something bad about the "Checker vom Neckar". That's why Gigi wants to talk to him privately again.
In about two weeks it will be shown how the relationships or hostilities of the stars have developed. Because on February 12th from 8:15 p.m. there will be the jungle camp “aftermath” on RTL.
