The second season of “7 vs. Wild” is currently running even more successfully on YouTube than the first: For example, the second episode has already been viewed more than ten million times after just under two weeks. With a lot of attention, however, there is also a lot of criticism in this case: some fans complained about the allegedly sexualized thumbnail for episode four, which shows the candidate Sabrina lightly dressed.
Now Fritz Meinecke, one of the participants and founders of the format, has harsh words about the production. But this time it’s a completely different topic: In his extensive commentary on the show on Twitch, he laments allegedly wrong timeswith which the episodes are provided.
Fritz Meinecke rants on “7 vs. Wild”
In his stream on November 21, Meinecke takes the second episode to his chest and gets really angry right at the start: he’s convinced that the production didn’t take the time information shown very seriously.
The date of the suspension of the participants on the island is dated “Day One, 9:47 am”. According to Meinecke, this is not the truth. The 33-year-old is angry:
“That’s a lie. What’s going on here? Are you kidding me? Can we just call it ‘7 vs. Wild’ – fake!”
Meinecke apparently has no problem handing out at the format he found himself. On the contrary, he wants to be honest with his community: “You know I’m transparent, and if production messes up here in the background, I’ll raise it with you. I don’t care! It’s my video, my project, my channel. If something like that happens: it doesn’t work,” he continues to get annoyed.
Clarification on “7 vs Wild”
“We didn’t leave until 11 or 12 in the morning,” Meinecke clarifies. So it must have been around 1:00 PM or 1:30 PM when the participants were exposed. It is precisely this that makes a “huge difference”, says the resident of Magdeburg.
The backdrop to the excitement: If the participants don’t land on the island until midday, they have less time to familiarize themselves with local conditions or prepare their sleeping quarters. “Day one, first lie, it doesn’t work like that,” Meinecke finally gets upset.
He points out whether the time indicated at 09:47 may not be the local time, but the German time. But that doesn’t quite work either: Central European Time is six hours ahead of Panama.
As evidenced by the comments on the stream, several fans were also surprised by the time information on the show. “That’s why it got dark so quickly,” writes a person who apparently sees the light after Meinecke’s explanation.
