Yeliz Koc (29) embarks on a special dating journey in "Make Love, Fake Love" (from December 29 in double episodes on RTL). The influencer will move to a villa in Mallorca with ten men in the format to find her dream man. But the men don't make it easy for her, because some of them are taken and only pretend to be single in order to skim off the prize money of 50,000 euros. Yeliz Koc must therefore uncover the liars and find out who is playing the wrong game. The fact that the 29-year-old is given her own dating show certainly has something to do with the fact that she was able to establish herself as a reality TV star in the past.
Yeliz Koc was born in Hanover in 1993 and initially trained as a make-up artist. With 564,000 Instagram followers, she is now primarily active as an influencer. Yeliz Koc became known to the TV audience through her participation in "The Bachelor". In the eighth season in 2018, she wanted to conquer the heart of Rosenkavalier Daniel Völz (37). But in the fifth episode, Koc did not receive a rose despite the previous kiss, which is why Völz received a slap in the face before the candidate left the villa.
Shortly thereafter, Yeliz Koc made a new attempt in search of love in the spin-off "Bachelor in Paradise". There she met Johannes Haller (34), who had previously tried his luck with "Bachelorette 2017". After the show, the two became a couple. They split in spring 2019, but reunited a few weeks later and took part in the "Summer House of the Stars" in the same year.
There they had to start their journey home in episode six. At the end of December 2019, they announced their separation again. After that, Koc drew attention to himself with a relationship with Jimi Blue Ochsenknecht (31). The relationship failed, their daughter Snow Elanie was born on October 2, 2021. In 2022, Yeliz Koc took part in the RTLzwei reality format "Kampf der Realitystars", but was eliminated before the final. On the show, she dated "Love Island" winner Paco Herb for a while, but it didn't get serious.
The 29-year-old Hanoverian does not give up hope for great love and the right one. But she makes no secret of the quite a few criteria that he has to meet. "I have a daughter now, I have a dog, which is really not easy and you just have to deal with my life and it has to be a very strong character," she said in an interview with RTL in August. Her future partner is also welcome to be a father - and wish for more children, because that's what she dreams of too.
