"I hardly trust anyone anymore": Ex-"Bachelor" Mangold feels horned

They were one of the seemingly dream couples that were actually forged in “The Bachelor”: Andrej Mangold and Jennifer Lange. But then the couple hit the “summer house” curse. Now the ex-Rosenkavalier pours out his heart – while his ex-girlfriend is newly assigned.

It was a memorable appearance with a lot of potential for discussion that ex- “Bachelor” Andrej Mangold and his girlfriend at the time Jennifer Lange completed in 2020 on the RTL show “Das Sommerhaus der Stars”. After all, the couple excelled above all as an expert duo in intrigue and bullying. This did not go unnoticed by the public. The result was a shit storm against the two of them, which initially did not want to die down even after the show had ended.

The relationship between Mangold and Lange could not withstand this pressure. The basketball professional and the fitness influencer split up. Both did not show their grief in public. Until now. “It all started with the ‘summer house of the stars’ and the mega-scandal about my person,” says the ex- “Bachelor” in an interview with the “Bild” newspaper.

“After the public separation, a world collapsed for me. I still have a family wish and thought I would be able to fulfill this dream after the show,” explains the 34-year-old. There seems to be no turning back for the former dream couple either, because Jennifer Lange is in a new relationship.

Mangold’s friend has been dating for a long time

Shortly after Mangold’s return from production to the TV format “Kampf der Realitystars” (Battle of Reality Stars), she apparently began a relationship with a friend of her ex-girlfriend. “He was my friend, my caregiver. He tried to encourage me even during the separation phase, often speaking badly about her, in order to finally get together with her”, Mangold says of his grief.

The news of this new relationship with his ex has apparently shaken him deeply. “I don’t know who I can still trust, and that still burdens me to this day,” says Mangold. But that’s not all: “After all the things that had happened, I sometimes don’t even know who is a friend and who is an enemy? I asked myself, would a woman Andrej even get to know or she just want to be in public? I hardly trust anyone anymore someone, “he explains.

Overtaken by problems

To this day he has not properly processed the events after the “summer house” and the separation, “probably because I did not allow myself a break,” admits Mangold to himself. “I just kept going, repressing my problems, thinking it would go away, but my problems caught up with me.”

When he gave in to the signals from his body, he only slept for a week and got sick. “In the meantime I’ve started to process things,” explains the reality TV star.

Andrej Mangold and Jennifer Lange met and fell in love with each other in the RTL program “Der Bachelor” in 2019. In the “Summer House of the Stars”, the meeting with Eva Benetatou, who had also participated in the dome format, but had been sorted out by Mangold there, caused tension. The “curse” of the “summer house” overtook numerous other celebrity couples before Mangold and Lange who went their separate ways after the end of the show.
