Jannine Barossa, who starred in Netflix's 'Instant Hotel', died at the age of 61, news outlets revealed on Saturday, August 18. The reality celebrity died earlier this summer after appearing on the first season of the Netflix show.

In the past few months, we have reported many celebrity deaths. Last month, actor Lisa Banes died after a hit-and-run accident involving an e-scooter. A few days later in June, we reported the death of Ned Beatty, the 'Deliverance' star who died of natural causes. Other celebrities that we lost in the last few months included Chick Vennera, DMX, Jeanette Maus, and many more.

"It is with great sadness that we announce Jannine’s passing on 21st of June 2021,"  read a message on the Barossa Old Garage Bed & Breakfast Facebook page in July. "Jannine will be forever missed by her loving husband Mark, daughter Hollie, family, friends B&B guests and fans of Instant Hotel worldwide," it continued. The reality star and her husband, Mark, owns the Barossa Old Garage Bed & Breakfast, which was featured in the streaming platform's series. 

Along with the image, a commemorative poem written fully in capital letters was uploaded. It read: "Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us everyday, unseen unheard but always near. Still loves still missed forever dear, roses are read and so is my wine, refill my glass and I will be fine. Every time you raise your glass, think of our treasured Jannine. RIP."


The cause of death for the television celebrity remains unknown, Metro reported. Jannine and her husband Mark, who had been together since high school, were featured on the show 'Instant Hotel', which featured homeowners competing for the top spot with their properties. The contestants would sleepover at one other's place and rate each other on a scale of one to ten. Jannine and Mark were popular favorites on the show because they had a lighter approach to their experience than the other candidates.

In the comments section, fans shared their sadness, with one writing: "I'm so sorry, we loved her on Instant Hotel and had hopes to one day come visit and meet the family. My condolences on the loss of your dear one." "Oh no …. such a beautiful lady and a superb hostess. Best memories of her hospitality and attention to detail during our stay at the Old Garage." said another. "So very sorry to read of this … sympathy to her family and friends. Gone far too young." "Such an amazing, warm and beautiful couple. Thoughts are with Mark and Jannine’s family," a third said.
