Fabio Knez (30) narrowly missed the chance for the jungle crown. On Saturday he had to leave the camp with reality star Mike Heiter (31). He made it to fourth place in this year's season of the RTL show "I'm a Star - Get Me Out of Here!" (also on RTL). Now he's having a good time at the hotel with a "whiskey and a cigar". In an interview with the news agency spot on news, the 30-year-old tells how he felt immediately after being kicked out.
Fabio Knez: That's of course difficult to say. I only have my perspective and I did my best. I can't judge it from that point of view. In the end, of course, it's the viewer who decides and maybe someone else was more interesting than me. But I am still very, very grateful and proud that I reached fourth place.
Knez: I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed. Sure, you want to be on the throne with the flower crown on your head. I am very grateful to still be placed and to have fought my way into the top five as a “nobody”.
Knez: I greeted my loved ones, Daria and my sister. And then Daria handed me a double whiskey and a cigar. And then I took both of them.
Knez: Actually the small amount of food. I had to deal with that first. Of course, it was a bit of a shock to have so little to eat when you had three burgers for lunch the day before.
Knez: I really got along very well with Heinz. Unfortunately I haven't met him yet. But I've only been here at the hotel for a few hours. I think I will definitely meet him in the next few days. And then we'll sip an espresso together.
Knez: That's hard to say. It's a very close neck-and-neck race and I'd definitely like it for everyone.
Knez: I'll put it this way: I can keep in touch with everyone. I haven't had any bad experiences with anyone at the camp. From that point of view, I think we will stay in touch with everyone.
Knez: Of course it's already planned, but as is often the case, it's not ready for a decision yet. And of course there are some things that are already running in the background. You just have to let yourself be surprised.
