How real is the TV show "Bauer sucht Frau" from RTL?
Former candidates and viewers of the dome show with Inka Bause have a clear opinion on this.
Since 2005, the broadcaster RTL from Cologne* has been setting ratings records in a row with the dome show “Bauer sucht Frau”. The single farmers looking for love inspire millions of TV viewers every year. 2021 was again a good harvest for RTL - according to
*, this is evident from a message from the media group RTL from Cologne, which deals with the ratings for the 17th season. On average, around four million viewers watched the 17th season of "Bauer sucht Frau"* per episode.
As early as 2020, the 16th season of "Bauer sucht Frau"* was able to achieve similar rates.
RTL's recipe for success on the format?
Not known for sure!
Perhaps it is due to the fact that the farmers and court ladies in the dome show with presenter Inka Bause always show themselves quite naturally on TV.
At least RTL always attaches great importance to the official announcement that everything that can be seen in "Bauer sucht Frau" is real and not played.
However, some doubt whether this is really the case.
Bauer sucht Frau (RTL): Dome show a scam?
Clues in Season 17
For example, some viewers criticized the 17th season of "Bauer sucht Frau" and labeled the show as a fake in numerous Facebook posts.
This is partly due to the fact that in 2021 a farmer in particular from the 17th season of "Bauer sucht Frau"* had made a very memorable appearance.
We are talking about dairy farmer Dirk from Schleswig-Holstein, who pissed off two women in Hofwoche and boasted about his fame on the RTL TV show.

But the fans are not alone with their fake speculation about the TV show with moderator Inka Bause*.
Former RTL stars have also made serious allegations against RTL in the past.
Most recently, horse landlady Denise Munding from NRW, who took part in the 16th season of "Bauer sucht Frau" in 2020.
According to her own statement, she wanted to send Dome Show permanent guest Till Adam home at the beginning of her court week, but: “According to RTL, that was not possible.” But why not?

The broadcaster RTL did not comment on Denise's disclosure on Instagram. Of course, that feeds the rumor that the broadcaster wanted Till to stay on the show to keep it exciting. The official announcement that everything is real - what the viewers get to see in "Bauer sucht Frau" - would then be swindle. And the case of Denise from season 16 wasn't the only scandal either. After the 17th season of "Bauer sucht Frau" in 2021, organic farmer Mathias from Bavaria also made serious allegations.
In an interview with
Donau 3 FM
, the farmer revealed that RTL urged him and his lady-in-waiting to kiss in front of the camera.
Mathias: “We were really forced there.
They kept saying, 'The kiss is still on the note, the editors are asking for a kiss'. ”In the case of Mathias and Sabrina, RTL commented and, at
's request , said that the two were not pushed and no kiss from them Redaction was prescribed - statement against statement.
Bauer sucht Frau (RTL): Show with Inka not so real?
statement raises doubts
The fact that not everything about "Bauer sucht Frau" is as real as it looks on TV is also confirmed by a statement by model Antonia Hemmer from Hanover, who took part in the RTL show in 2020 with moderator Inka Bause.
When she was asked about her participation in the dome show on Instagram, why she seemed so bitchy on TV, she answered harshly: "Well, I would say because everything was done to make me come across as unsympathetic as possible."
Well, I would say because everything was done to make me come across as unsympathetic as possible.

Antonia's revelation on "Bauer sucht Frau" does not reflect well on RTL.
On the contrary, it gives the impression that the RTL show is deliberately cheating and trying to keep the show exciting.
Is that actually true?
One thing is certain: the speculation cannot be proven – but it cannot be disproved either.
The truth is that both Denise, Mathias and Antonia became happy after participating in the dome show with presenter Inka Bause.
