When everyone is sitting together, the question arises as to how Cosimo "Der Checker vom Neckar" actually got into entertainment. So Cosimo tells of the beginnings and his countless DSDS appearances. Of course, the name Dieter Bohlen also falls in connection with the music show "Deutschland sucht den Superstar". Apparently a trigger point for Markus Mörl, who suddenly comes out of the quark.
Cosmio admits that he actually likes Dieter Bohlen and that he was right when he said that he couldn't sing. When there is a short silence, Markus Mörl says: "I'll tell you how I felt at home."
"He was still married to his very first wife. He invited me, it was about a production that he might want to do, I had already done 'I want fun' and stuff like that. I got so excited about this one Villa and there heaps of gold records and he had these Modern Talking records all the way down the stairs but now I'll let you in on a secret he had all these billboard hams so big books and then he showed me: 'Look, that's how I write my titles' – 'Brother Loui Loui' or 'Cheri Cheri Lady', that's all been done before and he used it."
According to Mörl, the biggest hits from "Modern Talking" are only recycled and not self-created. Now the NDW singer refers to his songs: "Then he listened to my stuff and said: 'Ah, this 'little flashlight' and 'I want fun' '- so this flashlight was stolen from me anyway." In the jungle phone, Mörl confirms his statement with a laugh: "So how did he think it could be from him – I have no idea, that's megalomania".
The conclusion of the said afternoon was that Mörl and Bohlen "didn't get together", but went out to eat. Together with Bohlen's wife at the time, the children and another friend, they then drove to a restaurant. "And when it came to paying, I thought: 'Ok, he'll probably invite me' - you think," reports Mörl. When Cosimo asked whether Markus had paid, he said: "Yes, of course." Cosimo a little annoyed: "He has so much money", whereupon Markus Mörl adds: "Yes, that's how you get money." Again on the jungle phone, he summarizes the situation: "Then I thought: 'As rich as you are, you are also knee-jerk'."
Cosimo closes the conversation with the words: "So if I were Dieter Bohlen, I would have invited you" and then said on the jungle phone: "I think it's cool, Dieter Bohlen should stay the way he is."
