In the "Fernsehgarten" there was a scandal on Sunday: The PARTEI crashed the ZDF broadcast and drove presenter Andrea Kiewel to the white heat. Now the broadcaster itself reported on the action.
Mainz – Actually, Andrea Kiewel (58) wanted to celebrate a fun end to this year's "ZDF Fernsehgarten" season on Sunday (September 24). At the Lerchenberg, she presented the last regular edition of the year under the motto "Oktoberfest". However, Die PARTEI had its own plans, crashed the show and repeatedly disrupted the moderation. In a statement, ZDF has now commented on the debacle.
ZDF comments on the disruptive action of Die PARTEI in the television garden
There was little to see of the riots on TV. Away from the camera, however, security had to intervene several times. Opposite IPPEN. MEDIA, Die PARTEI justified the TV garden crash with, among other things, a pool-pee bet. Now ZDF is also taking a stand.
At the request of IPPEN. MEDIA, ZDF issued a statement on the incidents: "Members of 'Die Partei' have tried to disrupt the course of the 'ZDF-Fernsehgarten'. ZDF had no indications of the planned action before the broadcast. Thanks to the sovereign actions of our employees, there were no interruptions or changes in the broadcast schedule."
Known? Andrea Kiewel lives in Tel Aviv
For love, Andrea Kiewel commutes between Germany and Tel Aviv. In her book "Mostly Sunny" she raves about her lover: "I love a man who is from another planet. It's called a long-distance relationship. (...) We live in different worlds. We don't even speak the same language. (...) We met on a street corner and that's where we're still standing." In order to understand him better, the presenter even completed a Hebrew course.
Dismissal: The PARTEI members climbed into the TV garden pool
Only rarely did a disturber make it in front of the camera. Nevertheless, the troublemakers kept the ZDF Fernsehgarten crew on their toes. "In accordance with the rules of our security management, two people who entered the TV garden pool without permission were expelled from the premises," ZDF revealed.
With its action, Die PARTEI stirred up the show properly. In doing so, however, they also affected other guests. The TV garden fans are horrified by the Stör action. Sources used: IPPEN. MEDIA Enquiry
