Becker Gives a Ring and then Jumps Through One

Former tennis star Boris Becker was a guest on the German game show “You Bet…?” along with his former girlfriend, Lilly Kersennberg and before being forced into stupid human tricks, announced he would marry the Dutch model in June. To top off the evening with a good note, Becker also jumped through a ring of fire, winning in a contest of who would humiliate themself more, beating out Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson. Only a few months ago Becker was engaged to jewelery designer Sandy Meyer-Woelden after he and Kersennberg broke up in 2007.

“Last summer I went a bit off track but she took me back. Now I don’t want to let her go,” Becker said on the show. The program’s presenter, Thomas Gottschalk, looked astonished and said: “No, not again?”
