All for getting a free cruise. This is the only reason that occurs to the residents of Tazacorte, on the island of La Palma, to understand what they saw on Monday on television. It happened during the premiere of
First Dates Cruise
, the dating program of Four presented by Carlos Sobera and transferred his appointments to a large ship. In the program they appeared Jero Y Adriana, two assumptions 67-year-old singles who lived a fake love at first sight with edredoning included, which has turned out to be gross mounting.
has had access to the testimony of numerous people who say that the couple would be married “for years”. “Everyone here was freaking out, WhatsApp groups fumed when we saw them appear on television,” says one of the neighbors of Tazacorte who prefers not to reveal his identity and also confirmed to have even attended Jero and Adriana’s wedding years behind.
The link took place in the formerly known as El Volcán beach on the island of La Palma and was mayor of the town, Carmen Acosta, who officiated the wedding civilly before dozens of guests. “They made a paella, we each took things, there were godparents and it was a ceremony with lots of music,” says another of the attendees. The then mayor did not want to deny or confirm this information in a telephone conversation with this newspaper.
Álvaro, the person in charge of preparing the paella for the wedding at the time confirmed that neither Jero nor Adriana were seen yesterday for the people “although they live very close” and that is “people are very upset because we are in a small place where we all know each other”. Moreover, the couple, married years ago, commissioned a paella for 80 people and “we danced a salsa wheel because we are from a group of sauces.”
There were few neighbors of Tazacorte (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) who exchanged messages for “hallucinating” with the “lie” they were watching on television. And although Jero and Adriana knit a most elaborate love story before Carlos Sobera, for his relatives it was still a crude invention to go on television. “It’s a fraud,” they complain in statements to The vanguard, while from Warner Bros. ITVP Spain (producer of
) ensure that Jero and Adriana himself insist on keeping their version of the story, which was seen on television despite the data collected by The vanguard.
A ‘crush’ movie
Jerome appeared on the Four show asking to have an appointment with a woman he had met “twice in his life”, after traveling on vacation to the island of La Palma. And the dating program had worked the miracle by locating Adriana and taking her to the cruise to have a blind date with her “secret admirer.”
According to the story that could be seen in First Dates Cruise, Juan lived in Germany when he met casually with Adriana four years ago on a trip to La Palma. It was, more specifically, on a nudist beach. He returned to the Central European country “totally in love” with her but the bad fortune wanted his second trip not to coincide with his beloved.
The third time was the charm and although on that occasion they did speak, he never showed what he felt towards her as he explained during the Mediaset dating program. Although yes it is true that Jerónimo lived many years abroad, the reality is that he is the native of Tazacorte while Adriana is of Italian origin.
For its part, Adriana’s story followed the script perfectly: I had no idea who could be the man who wanted to meet her and when he had it in front he played his role perfectly: “But what is your name? You sound to me … ”, he said with a surprised face in his first minutes in front of his course Admirer and husband in real life.
I’m as if we had a lot of time together ”
While these images were being broadcast, in Tazacorte they did not leave their astonishment. In the town, with only 4,200 inhabitants, almost everyone is known. Those closest to the couple did not understand why Jero and Adriana, married years ago, were posing as singles looking for a partner on television. “They do well … They will go wrong with pasta and they have gone on a free cruise,” speculated a neighbor of the town.
Already at dinner, both had a great affinity. They ordered the same dishes, they had the same opinion about distance relationships, they loved to travel by caravan and even practiced nudism. “If she’s open to falling in love, maybe it’s crazy but, I can safely say that I am in love with Adriana and that I am willing to be with her for the rest of my life”, Jero said after finishing dinner with his wife for years.
After their first date, the program gave them a second meeting but in a suite room luxury where they soon kissed and take off their clothes, since both practice nudism. Together, they tried the jacuzzi without clothes and there, Jero said at one point: “I am as if we had a lot of time together”. The phrase echoed throughout La Palma: “Go messing up,” another neighbor pointed out while asking her acquaintances if anyone kept any wedding photos.
“I’ve been very flattered, it has been a surprise“, Adriana said while Jero insisted that”This is the beginning of something very beautiful, I could not imagine” The idyllic love story that dazzled the audience now becomes a gross hoax according to the testimonies to which it has had access The vanguard. A story that seemed fiction and has turned out to be finally.
