Tessa Bergmeier talks about her bipolarity
Tessa Bergmeier annoyed the other jungle camp residents in the first three days. Now she talks about her bipolarity.
Tessa Bergmeier angered her kind in the first few days in the jungle camp and got her fellow campers on edge.
The model Tessa Bergmeier (33) teased in many reality shows in which she participated. This is also the case in the jungle camp, where she alarmed her fellow campers during the first three days. Now she is talking about her bipolar disorder.
“Many describe it as making you feel like Jesus. You know you are God – just like everything is God,” says Bergmeier at the night watch with actress Jana “Urkraft” Pallaske (43). Pallaske is an esoteric fan and knows exactly what the model means: “Yes, you got it! That’s why I say: elemental power!”
Induction because she said she was a “fairy of love”
Bergmeier says she was “in the light” and “felt that we are all connected and I am everything and nothing. And there are no words for that. They trained me because I said that I am a fairy of love and that I can enchant everything – I still believe that.”
In 2010 she was diagnosed with third-degree depression and then suffered from insomnia. Because of binge eating, the “Germany’s Next Top Model” candidate from 2009 gained twenty kilograms. However, she took knowledge with her from every phase. “It kept getting better. I am so well adjusted now that the disease is no longer there because it is recessive. Recessive means declining,” says Bergmeier.
She wanted to cancel the jungle exam
With her story she wants to encourage people to talk about mental health. “It’s important to stay with yourself and accept help,” she says in a later interview on the jungle phone. “To all people who are struggling with mental health problems: you can do it!”
Water Drama: “The water is so disgusting, it tastes like ash”
Bergmeier was chosen by the viewers alongside “DSDS” cult candidate Cosimo Citiolo (41) in the jungle test “Shitstorm – The Last Flush”. Together they sat on toilets in a dirty bathroom and had to answer questions while cockroaches, feathers, maggots, innards and slime fell on them. The citiolo screamed while Bergmeier kept wanting to stop the exam. Reason: She is vegan and could not cope with the meat waste in the exam. Citiolo: “It’s just food!” In the end, the two took home two out of twelve stars, one less than Bergmeier the day before. (imh)
