Wales hooker Owens set to miss autumn campaign

  Wales hooker Owens set to miss autumn campaign Wales hooker Ken Owens is set to miss the autumn international programme after suffering a dislocated shoulder, dealing coach Wayne Pivac a major injury headache. Owens sustained the injury during Scarlets' 20-7 defeat in Glasgow on Sunday and although no timeframe for his recovery has been given, it is understood he will be unavailable for the friendly against France on October 24, the Six Nations match against Scotland the following weekend and the Autumn Nations Cup. The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has announced that Dragons front row Elliot Dee will take his place in Pivac's squad.

RTL is not running the replacement show in Wales due to the corona pandemic. Further alternatives are currently being examined.

Update: RTL contradicts the information from Bild and DWDL. The statement by RTL boss Jörg Graf: "Dear cockroach friends, the jungle has not been canceled, there will also be a jungle show in 2021. The current corona situation forces us to work on the concept every day in order to get it right for everyone involved."

The choice of words is interesting. The statement only mentions of an jungle show. The cancellation probably only meant the alternative show in Wales. RTL is now examining further options.

Gethin Jenkins joins Wales coaching staff

  Gethin Jenkins joins Wales coaching staff Former Wales star Gethin Jenkins has joined his national team's backroom staff as technical coach for the breakdown and defence. Jenkins will replace Sam Warburton on Wayne Pivac's staff after the former Wales captain decided to spend more time on other commitments. Jenkins is one of Wales' most successful players, winning three Six Nations Grand Slams in 129 appearances. He went on three tours with the British and Irish Lions, winning five caps, before ending his international career in 2016.

We may see a jungle light that is neither in Great Britain nor in Australia. But somewhere in a jungle-like location in Germany, where RTL has the security conditions better under control. That would remind of the replacement ESC that the ARD hosted in May.

The following is the original article with our old level of knowledge:

A few weeks ago, RTL decided not to hold the jungle camp in Australia for the first time in 2021. A replacement location was already available. As DWDL and the Bild have found out, the planned next issue finds I'm a star - Get me out of here! does not take place at all.

Why is the jungle camp not taking place?

The exact reasons are not yet known. The British version of the most successful trash show on German television takes place in Wales, the aforementioned alternative to Australia, where the celebrities will live in a castle.

Dominic West 'to play Prince Charles at the time of his affair'

  Dominic West 'to play Prince Charles at the time of his affair' Dominic West, 50, is 'set to play Prince Charles in the final two series of The Crown' after the married actor was pictured embracing actress Lily James during a trip to Rome.The actor, 50, is understood to be taking on the role of Prince Charles at the time of his affair from Diana, Princess of Wales, with his second wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

reality shows have so far proven to be relatively crisis-proof in the Corona year. RTL is currently celebrating great success with the summer house of the stars. The show was moved from Portugal to Germany in a remote farmhouse.

The jungle camp is more expensive to produce than the competing programs, because the celebrities have to perform more demanding tasks and the fees are higher. The advertising income of the German channels is falling in the corona crisis.

Another important reason will be the unclear situation with increasing numbers of infections. RTL normally starts recruiting candidates around this time. Contracts have to be signed, fees have to be negotiated. Apparently the broadcaster does not want to take this (potentially) expensive risk.

The break as a chance for the jungle camp?

The jungle camp showed clear signs of fatigue during its last season . RTL could now use the compulsory break to consider reforms for the relaxed format. More spectacular competing programs such as the summer house, celebrities under the palm trees mercilessly exposed the weaknesses of the show this year.

However, the trip to a castle in Wales would also have conveyed this opportunity for reconsideration. We are now facing a long dry spell. At least the anticipation grows.

As the president shimmies to the Village People, he crystalizes the way that even sincerity and irony have become politically polarized.As if it needs to be said: The Village People are, canonically, very queer. Around 1977, the openly gay producers Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo canvassed bars for singer-actors and placed ads that read, “Macho Types Wanted: Must Dance and Have a Moustache.” The crew they hired costumed themselves as sexualized, masculine archetypes: the sailor, the fireman, the biker, the Native American chief, the construction worker, the cop. They sang songs that celebrated the guy-on-guy camaraderie of gyms, military regiments, and Fire Island.
