Blogger Lina Hellqvist, 24, is one of ten "beautiful big city girls" competing on the "Djungelns Drottning" ('Queen of the Jungle') reality television show currently airing on Sweden's Kanal 5.

The show sees the women dropped "in the middle of the jungle" where they are faced with a variety of challenges as they fight to "find their way back to civilization".

But one of the show's challenges, a wild mud wrestling contest, proved too rough for Hellqvist's sizeable breasts, as the silicone implant in her right breast came loose during the course of the competition.

"It was totally insane. It just burst," she told the Expressen newspaper.

"The other girls were also worried and wondered what was wrong. It was really unpleasant."

Following the incident, which took place during filming the show several months ago, the production team decided to send Hellqvist to hospital as a precaution.

She is currently in Sweden awaiting an operation to have the rogue implant put back in place.

"It feels really bumpy and bubbly," she told the paper.

The breast implant mishap wasn't the only aspect of the show that left Hellqvist unsettled.

"It was hard to wake up in the jungle. There were annoying animals everywhere," she said.

Story continues below…

During the programme's ten episodes, the first of which aired Wednesday night, viewers will also be able to see the contestants use hairspray to start fires and try to get their hair straighteners started without electricity.

Beautiful city girl??? HA HA HA HA HA !!!

Fleeing the jungle ain't gonna do her good, she will see an annoying animal everytime she looks in the mirror, where ever she is. For the rest of her life!

Yes funny .. and actually can be quite dangerous .. I would hope most women would consider the risk involved and take that as part of the deal .. no point complaining that it feels unpleasant .. it also feels unpleasant to kicked in the nuts when mud wresting ..

so she replaced her fake boob with a Care Bear? How many are hiding in there?

''it was really unpleasant'' hmmm, to say the least. What kind of translation is this?!! Spilt coffee on your shirt is unpleasant. A bursting boob has got to described with more than that. and ''annoying animals''?!! Is it only me that thinks this is a weird thing to say?

Made a bit of a boob of herself.....
14:49 March 15, 2012 by Svensksmith
Looks like she has plenty to spare.

Ah those annoying jungle animals. Isn't there something we could do to get rid of them? The jungle would be much more enjoyable without them.

It's all fun and games till someone loses a boob.

That's why natural is the best!! :)
19:56 March 15, 2012 by OUIJA
Yes, natural is the best. Problem is that there is almost no natural boobs in Sweden anymore.

Did you watch the Melody Festival?

Did you see the boobies in one of the hostesses. Those are boobies, but after reading this "international" story given to us as a gift by The Local, I wonder what would have happen it this booby hostess had fallen from where she pretended to be funny. A big blast and the police and firefighters would have come inmediately, and we would have missed Loreen being the most worthy winner of all times.

sounds like one of those cheap and very nasty PIP implants! she should have gotten better quality (or just used a care bear)
10:30 March 20, 2012 by Decedo
Wow she's 24? Ouch those were rough 24 years. Maybe it's like 'dog' years. She 24, but that's like 45 in 'hard partying socialite' years?

Heck, that's nothing! Here in America we have a reality show called The Republican Primary and the boobs run for President. The one who is probably going to win is obviously made of silicon.

Haha, serves her right. I hope in 100 years people read about this and have a good laugh. It's like in Victorian times women wanted to look like the "Queen" with a high hairline. To achieve the high hairline, they rubbed some kind of mixture (which contained amongst other things, bat poo) into their forehead hairline, in an effort to kill the roots. This is the modern version of that. Long live vanity, one of the best sources of entertainment ever! Anyway, I'm sure the boys down at the local garage would fix that flat for free!
