After Gil Ofarim confessed, friends publicly distanced themselves from him. Can the musician at least save his career in the jungle camp?
Leipzig – After the first speculations, there are now more rumours about possible jungle camp participants. A GZSZ star and a GNTM model are supposed to be there. Will TV viewers soon see Gil Ofarim (41) on "I'm a Star, Get Me Out of Here"? An RTL spokesman has now commented on this.
Gil Ofarim has gambled away the solidarity of his colleagues with his lie – is his career also over?
In October 2021, Gil Ofarim posted an emotional video message to his Instagram fans. In it, the musician claimed that he had been asked by the hotel staff of a Leipzig hotel to take off his Star of David necklace – or he would not be served. The clip sparked a wave of outrage and went viral. But the hotel defended itself against these harsh accusations. The case went to court. There, Gil Ofarim now admitted that he only made up the story.

For fans and many celebrity colleagues, who had publicly backed the musician after the alleged incident became known, it was a slap in the face. Gil Ofarim has almost certainly ruined his reputation with it. But can the singer at least save his career? As a jungle camp candidate, for example?

Gil Ofarim wouldn't be the first to use "I'm a Star, Get Me Out of Here" as a second career springboard. But even that seems to be out of reach for the musician at the moment, because even the jungle camp doesn't want the musician after his lying scandal. "In the entertainment sector, there are currently no plans with Gil Ofarim," said an RTL spokesman on BILD's request.

A similar picture emerges with the competing broadcasters. An RTLZWEI spokesman responded to the BILD inquiry: "At the moment we are not planning a format with Gil Ofarim." At ProSiebenSat.1, the rejection is less clear: "As a matter of principle, we do not discuss any collaboration with an artist in public."
