‘I sometimes get the question if I want a threesome’

“It is clear that keeping the one and a half meters away has not been successful,” says Jari Hellegers (22) from Hengelo about the last episode of Temptation Island: Love or Leave 2022. Curious about his story and how the handsome Hengeloër is doing now ? You can read that here.

“Whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said: famous!” says Jari. In recent weeks he was featured as a single in the extremely popular reality program Temptation Island: Love or Leave by Videoland. Which he would never have signed up for in the first place. The born and bred Hengeloër is now certainly known.

The program

First a short explanation about the program: Temptation Island: Love or Leave is a reality show in which you follow the love adventures of four Dutch couples. The couples are dropped separately from each other in a house full of singles, including the handsome bachelor Jari from Hengelo. The couples each go through the – there is the well-known word – ‘process’. Is their partner the right one or will a lady give in to the blond curls and broad smile of the Hengeloer?

To participate or not?

To that end, Jari was approached for the television program by the casting agency on Instagram. The bachelor had to think about it carefully and had his doubts. Should he or should he not? “You do have a certain stereotypical image among the people who participate in it and I don’t like that very much myself,” explains Jari.

‘Sometimes you have to go for it’

Though Jari had his doubts, he auditioned anyway. One thing led to another: the handsome Hengeloër was called three days before departure that he could come along. “Traveling to the Dominican Republic in the middle of winter and in corona time to have a party for three weeks, who wouldn’t want that? Sometimes you just have to take the chance and go for it,” says Jari.

The click with Maris

The Hengelo bachelor is indeed going for it, because he and candidate Maris are soon very close with each other. “Maris and I clicked really well. We could talk really well and laugh a lot. On such a warm island, in that setting and all the romantic dates with each other. It is not surprising that tension and feelings arise,” explains Jari. Maris also did not see top images of her partner Ivo, who was in the other villa.”

did they do it

A kiss has now been shared between Jari and Maris and they go on together dream date† The burning question everyone wants an answer to: Did they have sex on that very last date? “We have been intimate and it is clear that keeping the one and a half meters away has not been successful.”

‘Still goosebumps’

Once back in the Netherlands, everything is different. “I still get goosebumps just thinking about it,” says Jari. “You come out of a magical bubble where you have made friends for life and in the Netherlands everything is suddenly over. All those memories and I wasn’t allowed to talk to anyone about it because the program had to be broadcast first.”
