The corona virus continues to spread. The participants of "Big Brother" live in isolation, but a DSDS star breaks off prematurely.
- “ Big Brother ” participants have been in the camp of the Sat 1 show since the beginning of February.
- The celebrities are completely isolated from the outside world and live in isolation from the corona virus. *
- DSDS star Menowin Fröhlich is now taking consequences.
Update from March 25, 20200: Now the fear of corona has also reached the Big Brother house . DSDS star Menowin Fröhlich pulled the rip cord on Monday evening right after the live show. He left the show voluntarily. “The situation in Germany was brought to our attention a week ago. That alone was hard but my wife and the children persuaded me well and ensured that they were fine. It calmed me back then, ”he tells the picture . However, the latest measures taken by the federal government left him with no other choice. Because “the situation is very, very serious and can get worse every day. I do not want that if my wife or my children are in a bad way, I will only be informed about it after a delay and then I will have to leave the house first. ”

In the current crisis, the DSDS star wants to fulfill his role as a father as best as possible. Every moment counts for him: “That is simply time that I miss, but in which I have to be there for my family. I am a responsible man. I have five children and at this time every family man wants to be with his family. ”
Coronavirus: Menowin afraid of it?
A decision with consequences: Menowin finally refrains from further payments and a possible victory bonus. "I don't care about the consequences. Especially if they are financial in nature. I've also had a couple of TV shows and I just know that it doesn't stay that way. But the family stays and there is nothing more important, ”he explains.
His wife Senay had recommended that he stay in the house. But Menowin didn't want to take her advice to heart. The fear for their own family was too strong. He was worried for hours, especially at night. The musician's decision was no problem for his wife despite the contrary advice: "She said that she is very proud of me, totally understands me and supports me in everything I do."
Now Menowin is back with his loved ones. The return was " balm for the soul ". Back in reality, he experiences the profound changes firsthand. Does the corona virus scare him ? "Of course you worry, and whoever says he has no respect for the situation doesn't understand what time we are in. I have to find out all about the last two weeks anyway. ”It will probably be a little longer reading.
Sat.1 clarifies - participants finally know about the corona pandemic
Update from March 17, 2020: After weeks of ignorance, the candidates for the "Big Brother" television show, isolated from the outside world, now know about the coronavirus outbreak in Germany. Moderator Jochen Schropp (41) and a doctor - sitting behind a glass pane - brought them the very surprising news on Tuesday in a special edition: Germany is largely at a standstill, the virus is on the advance and among others for older people as well already sick people dangerous.
"Big Brother" ignorant in quarantine - unsuspecting C celebrities are isolated from the outside world
First report: Cologne - All of Germany speaks about the spread of the corona virus * - but in Cologne there is a small area of unsuspecting people. While the rest of the world is currently worried and trying to prepare for the pandemic, a small group of C celebrities knows none of this.
Big Brother participants unsuspectingly in quarantine
On February 6, around a dozen people in Cologne were isolated from the outside world to move into the camp of the Sat.1 show "Big Brother". At that time there were first cases of the corona virus * in Bavaria, but no further spread or ghost games in the Bundesliga. The candidate's level of knowledge has not developed since then.
"Depending on how you informed yourself beforehand, you know theoretically about the outbreak of the virus in Wuhan and the first infections outside of China," said a Sat.1 spokesman for the German Press Agency. "As of February 6th, however, they were unable to receive any messages." Unsuspectingly, the small group had fun in the whirlpool and, apart from the small dramas of everyday life, it was quite enjoyable.

"Big Brother" isolated from the corona virus
The later recruited candidates - including singer Menowin Fröhlich - do not change the knowledge gap. They were not allowed to tell the regular staff anything about the developments. The rules of " Big Brother " prohibit it. "Whether football results, primaries in the United States, the TV ratings or the corona virus - the new residents are not allowed to talk about these topics," said the spokesman.
With " Big Brother ", the candidates live this year in two houses in Cologne's Ossendorf district. They are filmed around the clock. To prevent the coronavirus * from spreading in the houses, new residents were tested before they moved in. According to Sat.1, all tests were negative. Now the station plans to break its own corona rule and wants to show an extra live show from “Big Brother”.
