The “farmer, single, looking for …” moderator Marco Fritsche has wild times behind him. In an interview he talked about his wild party time.
On the Alm there’s no sin! Marco Fritsche has been in front of the camera for the 3+ dome show “Bauer, single, sucht” since 2008, but the Appenzeller started out as a TV presenter in the early 2000s at the music station Viva. This time was very wild, as he reveals in a new interview.
At that time he had experienced a high and also had experience with drugs. “I tried everything there was when I was 25 to 30, 32,” he says in the podcast “Parlez-Vous Plü” by moderator Maximilian Baumann (31) on the streaming service Oneplus. “I earned well, had a good job that everyone around me thought was great, and as a child from the country I lived in Zurich. I was about to go crazy.” In an interview with the “Schweizer Illustrierte” in the summer of 2022, he said exactly what that meant: “I smoked, drank alcohol, smoked pot and coke.” He has never tried LSD, but would like to do so once with some support.
“I’m glad I got away with a black eye”
Nevertheless, he does not long for these wild times back, Fritsche continues. “Ten years later I met a friend from university. At half past one in the afternoon, someone who was a DJ during my wild party time also came in at this bar. And he looked so bad, he was totally screwed, »says Fritsche. He just thought: “I don’t know what it is, but it’s not good.”
But he doesn’t want to miss out on his experience. “It would annoy me now if I hadn’t had that rock ‘n’ roll time. But I’m glad I got away with a black eye.” He has friends who didn’t experience this Sturm und Drang period and want to catch up on everything in their forties. He finds that “completely embarrassing”: “It’s a bit strange. Often the first divorce is over or the person is going through a mid-life crisis. Or all together.”
Retreating to Appenzell was a smart step
Marco Fritsche, who made his love for actor August Wick (37) public in 2021, describes the move to move his center of life from Zurich back to his home Appenzell as a smart step. ‘Not exactly on Mother’s breast, but on the hearth at home. Into the safe haven. I think that saved me.” (imh)
