Jungle camp: That's why Kim Virginia is so polarizing

A canceled exam, an eyelash brush smuggled into the camp and constant arguments with her ex Mike Heiter (31): Kim Virginia Hartung (28) is currently the candidate appearing in the RTL show “I'm a Star - Get Me Out of Here!” stands out the most. Who she has already brought onto the scene and what crazy things she has already done...

"You have no money, you're manipulative, you talk badly about your ex-girlfriends, you have hair loss, you don't admit anything and make me out to be a liar," Kim Virginia accused her ex of being with him in the sixth episode on Wednesday evening She began a fling in 2023 as a candidate on “Are You the One – Reality Stars in Love”. Mike Heiter remained admirably calm in the face of her violent attack, in which she also commented on the supposedly small size of his best piece. He concluded: "You're obsessed with me. I hope you find yourself."

Kim's multiple arguments even attracted Heiter's ex Elena Miras (31) in front of the camera, even though she had allegedly decided not to say anything about the jungle events. The Swiss woman met Mike Heiter in the first “Love Island” season, they were a couple from 2017 to 2020 and have a five-year-old daughter. Since Kim Virginia also chatted about the girl, Miras' hat exploded and she commented on an Instagram story. In it she emphasized that Kim Virginia had no idea at all and didn't know what arrangements Mike Heiter and she had regarding the child. She also defended herself against the possible impression that she was preventing him from seeing the girl more often.

Even before her love affair with Mike Heiter in Australia, the Mannheim native drew attention to herself with various TV men's stories. She appeared on the television dating scene for the first time in 2021 when she competed for the heart of Niko Griesert (33) on “Bachelor”. Although she left early, she had obviously discovered life in the spotlight. In 2022 she took part in the “Miss Germany” election and was able to take second place. A year later the title “Miss World Noble Queen” followed. Appearance is very important to the former flight attendant, which probably explains the eyelash brush gate in the jungle. She is open about her procedures like breast surgery and liposuction. The 28-year-old created a Barbie look.

After the RTL show “The Bachelor” further TV appearances followed: in 2022 she moved into the men’s villa on “Temptation Island” as a seductress. There she caused a scandal after kissing rapper Abdu Karakuyu without asking. Even back then, she attracted attention with her controversial behavior and showed that she doesn't mince her words. As a result, she ultimately had to leave the show early. She also only had a brief presence on “Bachelor in Paradise” in 2022 because she didn’t get a rose in the first episode.

In 2023 “Are You the One – Reality Stars in Love” was added to her resume. There she was noticed several times. After flirting with Mike Heiter, she got involved with content creator Martini "Teezy", with whom camp colleague Leyla Lahouar (27) was also dating. She also met her ex-boyfriend Emanuel Weißenberger, with whom Kim Virginia took part in "Celebrity Separated - The Villa of the Exes" at the end of last year. The episodes are scheduled to air this year.

But there seems to be another Kim Virginia beyond scandalous appearances, insults and unhappy love adventures. She graduated from high school with a grade of 1.9, started two courses and worked as a journalist for three years before becoming a flight attendant. In the jungle she also revealed a tragic story from her childhood. “I had a very violent father who dragged me across the floor or kicked me,” she said through tears. "It was a constant state until I was twelve." If she had cried, she would have been punished: "It's hard on your neck when you were brought up like that. People think that I'm cold-hearted." But because of her experiences, it is more difficult for her to show feelings. “I became so strong because I had to be strong,” she said, giving probably the most honest insight into her soul to date after all these years on TV.
