Since her victory at the jungle camp in 2019, Evelyn Burdecki (31) has become an integral part of TV. In mid-August she was on the advice team for the new RTL music show “I Can See Your Voice”, and from next Saturday, October 17th, she will be part of the new “Supertalent” season alongside Dieter Bohlen (66), Bruce Darnell (63) and Chris Tall (29). Only with love it doesn’t really work with the blonde so far. The German-Polish TV star dreams of a big family. “But it doesn’t work without a great man,” explains the 31-year-old in an interview during a car ride and looks back on her childhood.
You come from a Polish, arch-Catholic family, how did that shape you?
Evelyn Burdecki: I was in the children’s choir and of course I believe in God. The fact that I used to like to wear short skirts didn’t go over well with my mom, of course. So I still put on leggings and took them off again as soon as I was through the door.
What is typically German and typically Polish about you today?
Burdecki: I like to eat vegan schnitzel. It is typically Polish that I always eat a wafer at Christmas. This tradition is not known in Germany.
What is your earliest childhood memory?
Burdecki: I used to have little hamsters and mice. When they died, I buried them behind our house. I always did a little ceremony there.
Can you still remember your very first car?
Burdecki: I never wanted a big car, always something small and practical that I can park easily with. But still chic, of course. My first car was a Ford KA, which was small and practical, but that’s about it. Now I drive a Kia XCeed, which is not only chic, it even parks itself.
What did you want to be when you went to school?
Burdecki: I wanted to be a masseuse. My family always told me that I could do that so well, they just poked me into their arms so they could get a massage from me.
How many times have you been in love in your life?
Burdecki: I am in love anew every day, with life, with people, with many things that just happen to me.
Do you dream of a wedding and children?
Burdecki: Yes, I want to have five children and a great wedding, but it won’t work without a great man.
