10 minutes with Dimitri Janssens25-04-2010
Dimitri Janssens (32) comes from Belgium and he participated in an Estonian reality show, where he hoped to find the woman of his dreams. I-Marbella found out more about the mysterious charmer.
What is your profession?
I am independent businessman.
What languages you speak?
I speak 4 languages: Dutch, English, French and German.
Do you have a favourite area or part of the coast? And why?
My favourite part is of course Marbella and also Puerto Banus, because the weather is always good to go out with the boat and jetsets, with nice cars and of course my friends.
In what way does Belgium differ from Spain?
Belgium is my home country and I have many businesses there but this is it ...
Do you possess any skill or talent?
I think I'm skilled in business, because I see the right things.
What would you say is the best and the worst aspect of your job? Why?
The best is when I start a new business and when it starts running - the kick that you get then. The worst is that everything that goes up always comes down.
What advice would you give to a young man trying to become a businessman?What qualities should he possess?
First be a member of our b2b club and then you can get advice from many people, who know how the business works, what are the dangerous parts aso. If you believe in something and you work on it every day it ALWAYS works, but you must believe it 100 per cent...
Is education the most important in business or is it something else?
No, education is not that important. Believing is.
Describe a few ways how you spend your time here?
In the morning I go running or to the gym, then I work a few hours, then have dinner. Almost every day I go out with the boat and most of the time I stay in front of the beach, turn off the engine and just relax listening music and the freedom of the sea.
Do you have any free time for hobbies?
I don't have many hobbies, I consider my job as one. I have everything for hobbies, like an atv, motorbikes, but they haven't been used for many years.
How do you stay fit?
I go running to stay fit.
Do you go for a holiday to any other destinations now that you have relocated to a luxury resort? If so, where and why?
I travel almost all over the world, but the most I like Mexico, Hong Kong and of course my number one Estonia.
Name a few of your favourite restaurants or cafes here and what attracts you to them?
I like Salotto, because of its excellent food and service, the Naga for the best Thai food ever! The Terrace andalusia, because the owner is a good friend of mine and number one is of course the Ocean club . The service, the food and the ambiance it is like no other place in the world!
What is good to do in springtime in Marbella?
There are lots of things to do. I go out with a boat or waterskiing.
What are your plans for this summer?
I will be a lot in Puerto Banus to enjoy but also to work.
They say you know how to party.What is the best party place in Marbella?
I love the Ocean club! And in the evening almost everything is good there...
What is the biggest sum of money you have spent on one party? What is your favourite drink?
It was also of course in the Ocean club and it was with my birthday. The amount is not important, but it was not normal. And my favorite drink is champagne - Vueve cliquot.
What is the most memorable moments that you have had in the reality show?
I hated when I had to send a girl home.
How has the show affected your life?
As you know, I met a girl after the show in Spain and this is a big problem with all the attention of the beautiful girls from Estonia.
Have you now found the love of your life or are you still looking?
I found the love and we are gonna have a little girl after a few months.

Having lived in LA and London, I think that Naga Thai is a very poor restaurant in terms of food quality and service. The food is insipid and way overpriced for what you get. The staff are incredibly rude, amazing for a Thai restaurant. I guess that Banus all over...
mmmm i think they´re only 2gether cuz the girl got pregnant..cuz no one would plan the have a child after only a couple of months knowing each other, not smart people like that atleast... and also dimi was kind of rude in the beginning calling this lady crazy in the estonian media..atleast now he is finally up to the challenge of being a dad..:)
