Amazing facts

The Wendler is successful without music training: Music is obviously in Wendler’s blood because he did not enjoy any classical musical training. In his early days as a musician, the young Dinslakener could not even read notes and hummed his songs to his producer, who then implemented the songs professionally.

The Wendler is a reality star: Although the Wendler is controversial, he knows how to entertain and is a welcome guest on German television. In 2014 he took part in the RTL reality show “I am a star – get me out of here”. Although he voluntarily left the jungle camp after only four days, he received an estimated fee of 120,000 euros. Wendler hoped for a second chance just one year later by winning the show “I’m a star – get me back in”. During the test of courage, which he had to take, he injured his hand and head and sued the production company for damages in the amount of 200,000 euros.

The Wendler lived on a 150,000 square meter stud farm in Germany: Michael Wendler and his family have lived at the Wendler Stud Farm in Dinslaken since 2010. The stud farm, with a floor area of 150,000 square meters, including 1,500 square meters of living space, has been on sale for 4.7 million euros since 2016 because Wendler and his family wanted to leave Germany. It was only in 2018 that a Frankfurt businessman bought the property for a purchase price of 4.5 million euros.
