ANIMATORS : The Life of a Hotel Animator Rat !

Since you know so much about the bezness culture. Why not get the hotels to write a warning to tourists regarding love rats. Only travel agencies or hotels can warn but of course they will lose money and that is not good for Tunisia.

That idea crossed my mind, and I've tried .. but it's not as easy as it seems honestly ...

Warning people of Bezness guys, is not a warning that could be written on a piece of paper and hanged on the wall, because people will need explanation, second, it could considered a discrimination as well .. In Paris for example, you don't really find hotels warning of Scammers, despite the fact that these scammers (NGO's and signature scammers) are all over Paris.

But Love Rats, I consider this an Organized crime, so it's very difficult to warn people with a paper, otherwise you'd find yourself acting like a paranoid all over the city and the hotel, and this results that we can't get to enjoy our holidays as we'd spend most of it watching over our shoulders and expecting the worst out of everyone...

For Travel agencies, I happen to have noticed few times during my trips back home, that some of the guides tend to warn Tourists of these Rats, all the time.

I guess the only way to warn of such things is through advice, social media, forums etc.. this works better in my opinion.

The problems lie with the authorities because they do not see the problem as long as they do nothing with the bezness culture then this problem will increase. The fact is everyone wants a piece of the pie and they do not care about the women or men who are being exploited. There is money and as long as they can get enough out until the women's wallet is empty then she is nothing anymore for either the country or the boy
The Authorities know, and I happen to know few policemen that actually work for the Touristic Police, like I said, Police won't actually come or jump over any Tunisian guy that happens to be with a foreign woman .. because some of these couples are actually happy and genuine couples, they just cannot assume .. but people that got ripped-off must turn to this Touristic Police and talk to them right away !! explain and show the evidence ( Western-union receipts, messages etc..) especially in case of blackmailing and scamming. The Police like anywhere in the world, would come only if they suspect something or see a situation that doesn't seem to be right. But I'm sure that they're keeping their eyes on some major dangerous RATS.

It may be organized crime but if the authorities had done something to stop the bezness culture then surely many tourists would have come back later because it is cheap there and good hotels. I agree that the tourist police are trying to warn but I also think that Tunisia can be corrupt and that some get money for not saying anything

I surely agree, Yet, corruption is more difficult to happen, it's still happening over there, but it usually doesn't involve Rats .. Plus, a Policeman would never cover for a Rat because they are hated by the general population, and you've mentioned exactly what needs to be done, but unfortunately, it's not the authorities job to educate people .. it's their families, also, the Rats that you may find in tourist cities, are not usually from there, they come from inner cities convincing their families that they left for "Big" cities to look for a job .. it's just the way of thinking that needs to be changed, a mentality .. and of course, if most tourists don't engage into having "FAST" relationships and become more aware of them this will decrease the Rats as well.

It's just us, people, need to make a change and we should start doing so without relying on any authorities.

It is true . These men also know which women fall into their trap. I think they observe the women carefully before making contact. It can take up to several days I think and what is strange is that they know everything about which planes land and when new tourists arrive.

Of course it's a part of the process, that's why when I wrote a thread about how to get away from Rats, I mentioned few things to make them realize that a person isn't available or able to be "RATTED" because they observe very closely, they tend to gather some information and see how things would turn out.. some women think like, what could turn wrong ? I'm on a vacation I'm gonna just have fun ... these are the Preys and the Easy Targets, you can do that or think about that .. without making it obvious. simple

Hello again,



Animators ! Oh yeah ... these sexy exotic-looking guys that you can find in pretty much every hotel across Tunisia, jumping, yelling, laughing, telling jokes, giving massages, dancing "BOOOMBAAAA" etc.. they're just practically ALL OVER THE PLACE .. They really attract your attention, they do !!

I'm 100% Sure that some of you have "Experiences" with Animators, if not most of you of course.


Today, I will be exposing Animator-Rats that are pretty much in every Hotel in the country and yes, I assume my responsibility when I say at least 99% of them are just professional Ripp-offs, Scammers and emotional black-mailers but again ! this doesn't mean that all animators are rats but most of them are lmfao

As I usual I will organize this thread according to bigger titles and topics, as I will be focusing first on Animators' terms/dictionary then I will talk about how a Rat Animator spends his day before I finish with Tips and tricks that Animators use aside of their "Job" in order to get money.

So let's go on with it !

LEARN HOW TO SPEAK ANIMATORS' LANGUAGE IN 2 MINUTES !


Animators have different sometimes more distinguishable terms and words they use to refer to certain elements and certain aspects of their jobs, once you're in a hotel with an animator's company, you'd automatically hear these words .. I'll just focus on the general terms, but next time I'll tackle the "Tunisian-Arabic" terms that indicate that you're dealing with a Rat.

1- " Arrivage "
You guessed right ! It means arrival, it's what they say every time they learn that new "potential victims" are arriving to the hotel.

2- "El Box"
It's just a wardrobe where you can find a lot of hair wigs, clothes, some cheap disguise clothes, make up, some beach toys yati yati yati etc...

3-"Contact"
This is a part of the job, Contact means the conversations they must have with tourists ( most importantly potential victims ) it's just when you're chilling on the beach and suddenly some weird over-tanned young man jumps on you trying to act funny and establish some conversation that's what they call "contact".

4- "Depart"
It's just when tourists are about to leave the hotel.

5- Accueil :
It's simply when they put a *DIY* "POSTER" about tonight's event or show and they just try as hard as they can to convince you that you must attend.

6- Boita
Simply the night-club.

Some of these terms, I admit, are less relevant such as Aqua Gym, "The Boomba" thing .. anyway, I will talk next time in depth about the most important and frequent terms and expressions that every Rat uses and explain them all.

HOW DOES A RAT-ANIMATOR SPEND HIS DAY ?


1- Animators usually get hotel rooms.
Since the Animator must be present around tourists from dawn till dusk and most likely after that too, they usually get empty hotel rooms offered by the hotel that is hiring them.

2- MORNINGS
When you're simply enjoying your holiday by the beach and trying as much as you can to spend some unforgettable times and good ones, The Animator becomes a part of your life .. especially when he smells that you're well-off or coming from a rich country etc...

3- THE ARRIVAGE
This is why I wanted to explain this word/term .. because it's significant ! As tourists, you may notice (or not) as soon as you're arriving to the hotel getting off the bus, some hotel animators would come to the lobby/reception to greet you and to introduce themselves as well.
You'd be like "owww how cute !" Well, not so much !
These moments are the most important and crucial moments of the predators (TLR) that's when they get to know you, where are you coming from, how do you look, whether you're alone or with a friend, etc... They would analyze everything about you during those few second/minutes.
Don't be surprised if some animator guy starts talking to you while you're filling the form and waiting for the key to your room, and in fact he might even want to know the number of your room as well.

FUN FACT: During that time, the Animators start "gossiping" and talking between themselves in order to share and cut the "Prizes" as each one will focus on one or two, sometimes more girls (usually) and inform his "colleagues" that they are his Preys so that nobody else would approach them except for him (approach them in a "special" way I must say).


4- The Swimming-pool and the beach:
That's where the Rat-Animator would spend most of the time, after you get the keys to your room, you'd want to chill a bit at the pool or the beach, that's when his works starts, he'd usually start having some minor small talks with you, this type is usually the type that already has a girl at the hotel and she's about to leave in a couple of days, so he'd keep it short and simple with you. But once that girl leaves the hotel, everything changes and escalates real quick !

5- Dj's :
Sometimes, Mr Deejay would want to share some of the fun, but of course ! he's just using Virtual DJ and pretty much underground pre-composed music or mainstream ones, and the problem is that he believes he's a true DJ (This brings tears to my eyes)

6- The Nightlife:
2 main or possible events would always take place, it's the "SHOW" it's just poor comedy, cheap taste of music, most of these shows exist in pretty much every hotel, The same thing! Some music for the kids and of course they'd try to come to you and make you join them on "Stage" That's so much fun Yay !
The NIGHT-CLUB as well, it usually opens after the night-show and it's also the perfect ground for the Rat-Animators to get close to you, make you drink and of course ask you to buy them drinks, then some of you know how this will end-up or where lol

7- Tomorrow morning:
And Tadaa ! you're in touch pretty much closely with a Rat because after the disco, the night show, after sharing a couple of conversations by the pool. danced a bit later at night .. you became "Friends" or "Close" and that's when the REAL WORK BEGINS .. ( asking for social media, paying attention, the famous developing of feelings etc...)

See? It would take them only one day maximum 2 to get their preys !

8- The Goodbye:
Remember our friend, the Animator that already has a girl in the hotel and acts slippery around you, but focusing only on the short talks, and small conversations .. now he's changed and he's becoming too close to you, just because the girl that he has just left the hotel back to her country, so now he's 100% Free to focus on the next one.

And yeah, It's as simple as that for them, once you leave ! they'd just keep in touch via social media to ask for money, visas, marriage .. while they're already preying on someone new that has just arrived in the last "Arrivage".

HOW DOES THE ANIMATOR MAKE REAL MONEY ?


1- The Animator job doesn't pay well .. PERIOD !
Animators, don't usually have good salaries, not only they work exclusively during the "Season" but also, they Eat, drink, and sleep for free at the hotel ..

2- Drinks and Smokes:
You'd already know by now, how do they get to smoke and drink during the day ! The Free Exclusive offers in Tunisian hotels and Tourists having that offer are usually the first Preys. You'd simply Share your drinks with them and they'd constantly ask for cigarettes especially when then make you think as if you've gotten familiar together.

3-Rolling eyes
Some animators, would try to take note of everything you have .. they'd compliment your jacket, watch, phone, sunglasses .. anything to make you give it to them before you leave..
And yes, I know what you're thinking .. It works and it's still working out for them until this moment because they'd analyze your personality before they ask for anything.

4-Not so good company:
Many Tourists would like to visit the city and get out of the hotel to walk, sightseeing, exploring place especially the "Medina".. and that's the perfect opportunity for the Rat-Animator to earn ( get ) some extra cash ! and This is very simple, they just express their desire to take you to the Medina (ex:_) and help you do your shopping for souvenirs etc...
They'd end up agreeing with a shop-owner that they already know and sometimes they really work together.. So, You'd end up buying a 40$ Chinese carpet for 100$ or even more, you'd also buy a 5$ Box of cigarettes that have an unknown origin with at least 20$ or more .. etc.. This way, of course the shop-owner or the seller has made some extra income, but also the Rat-Animator made some good cash as well.

PS : There's a new trend, some people use drugs and sometimes Animators would also offer their help to get some, they'd buy you a 5$ worth of drugs for 50$ and more and it seems according to my sources this has been working out for them like magic.


Just to conclude, I know there are some good Animators out there, and I've known some really good and honest ones that never had the intention of using anyone for any personal or financial gains, but you really need to watch out !! they may seem "Special" and you're on a holiday so f#ck it, let's just have some fun !! but that fun may cost you a lot.

I'll be talking more in depth about other tricks in the near future, and things that you really should do and do not as soon as you land in Tunisia or any other country.

Sexy and erotic looking, oh please I am laughing so hard. Pygmy circus rats in flip flops, they compensate for lack of looks and height in their charming words of love for many women. Some look frightening to me, no grooming at all. Have they ever heard of a comb/brush? Has anyone looked at their rotten teeth?? :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: NO brains to think but their mouths are moving, not to mention their morals leave something to be desired. What would be their real job title? Hahah, Can't teach these rats anything, they think they are too good for the human race! :D :D :D :D :D :D

My ex-rat was like an experiment gone wrong, although he was not an animator.

The lesson for them is the world is not the same anymore and the world is waking up to the rat scammers!

Just saw this now very good post, obviously what they do is horrible but that was hilarious. I’ve definitely ran into these types in Egypt, they usually wear their hair in short (sewn in) dreads or tie it back in one of those springy headbands lol they look like proper bellends and yet somehow some of them do have sex appeal (and they know it!) :eek:

How do we fall for them so quickly, well my answer to that is god only knows but as others have said they do present themselves as a sort of knight in shining armour... you get caught up in this whole fantasy, you’re in a beautiful setting... and again they do have a certain sex appeal even when they’re ugly as f*ck LOL.

These moments are the most important and crucial moments of the predators (TLR) that's when they get to know you, where are you coming from, how do you look, whether you're alone or with a friend, etc... They would analyze everything about you during those few second/minutes.
Don't be surprised if some animator guy starts talking to you while you're filling the form and waiting for the key to your room, and in fact he might even want to know the number of your room as well.

FUN FACT: During that time, the Animators start "gossiping" and talking between themselves in order to share and cut the "Prizes" as each one will focus on one or two, sometimes more girls (usually) and inform his "colleagues" that they are his Preys so that nobody else would approach them except for him (approach them in a "special" way I must say).


4- The Swimming-pool and the beach:
That's where the Rat-Animator would spend most of the time, after you get the keys to your room, you'd want to chill a bit at the pool or the beach, that's when his works starts, he'd usually start having some minor small talks with you, this type is usually the type that already has a girl at the hotel and she's about to leave in a couple of days, so he'd keep it short and simple with you. But once that girl leaves the hotel, everything changes and escalates real quick !

5- Dj's :
Sometimes, Mr Deejay would want to share some of the fun, but of course ! he's just using Virtual DJ and pretty much underground pre-composed music or mainstream ones, and the problem is that he believes he's a true DJ (This brings tears to my eyes)

6- The Nightlife:
2 main or possible events would always take place, it's the "SHOW" it's just poor comedy, cheap taste of music, most of these shows exist in pretty much every hotel, The same thing! Some music for the kids and of course they'd try to come to you and make you join them on "Stage" That's so much fun Yay !
The NIGHT-CLUB as well, it usually opens after the night-show and it's also the perfect ground for the Rat-Animators to get close to you, make you drink and of course ask you to buy them drinks, then some of you know how this will end-up or where lol

7- Tomorrow morning:
And Tadaa ! you're in touch pretty much closely with a Rat because after the disco, the night show, after sharing a couple of conversations by the pool. danced a bit later at night .. you became "Friends" or "Close" and that's when the REAL WORK BEGINS .. ( asking for social media, paying attention, the famous developing of feelings etc...)

See? It would take them only one day maximum 2 to get their preys !

8- The Goodbye:
Remember our friend, the Animator that already has a girl in the hotel and acts slippery around you, but focusing only on the short talks, and small conversations .. now he's changed and he's becoming too close to you, just because the girl that he has just left the hotel back to her country, so now he's 100% Free to focus on the next one.

And yeah, It's as simple as that for them, once you leave ! they'd just keep in touch via social media to ask for money, visas, marriage .. while they're already preying on someone new that has just arrived in the last "Arrivage".

HOW DOES THE ANIMATOR MAKE REAL MONEY ?


1- The Animator job doesn't pay well .. PERIOD !
Animators, don't usually have good salaries, not only they work exclusively during the "Season" but also, they Eat, drink, and sleep for free at the hotel ..

2- Drinks and Smokes:
You'd already know by now, how do they get to smoke and drink during the day ! The Free Exclusive offers in Tunisian hotels and Tourists having that offer are usually the first Preys. You'd simply Share your drinks with them and they'd constantly ask for cigarettes especially when then make you think as if you've gotten familiar together.

3-Rolling eyes
Some animators, would try to take note of everything you have .. they'd compliment your jacket, watch, phone, sunglasses .. anything to make you give it to them before you leave..
And yes, I know what you're thinking .. It works and it's still working out for them until this moment because they'd analyze your personality before they ask for anything.

4-Not so good company:
Many Tourists would like to visit the city and get out of the hotel to walk, sightseeing, exploring place especially the "Medina".. and that's the perfect opportunity for the Rat-Animator to earn ( get ) some extra cash ! and This is very simple, they just express their desire to take you to the Medina (ex:_) and help you do your shopping for souvenirs etc...
They'd end up agreeing with a shop-owner that they already know and sometimes they really work together.. So, You'd end up buying a 40$ Chinese carpet for 100$ or even more, you'd also buy a 5$ Box of cigarettes that have an unknown origin with at least 20$ or more .. etc.. This way, of course the shop-owner or the seller has made some extra income, but also the Rat-Animator made some good cash as well.

PS : There's a new trend, some people use drugs and sometimes Animators would also offer their help to get some, they'd buy you a 5$ worth of drugs for 50$ and more and it seems according to my sources this has been working out for them like magic.


Just to conclude, I know there are some good Animators out there, and I've known some really good and honest ones that never had the intention of using anyone for any personal or financial gains, but you really need to watch out !! they may seem "Special" and you're on a holiday so f#ck it, let's just have some fun !! but that fun may cost you a lot.

I'll be talking more in depth about other tricks in the near future, and things that you really should do and do not as soon as you land in Tunisia or any other country.
Good morning they should be called Ratnimators instead of Rat-Animators. They are boardwalk Rats, All they want to do is Hump get money and look for the next victim. The more we exposed the better for woman or men not to be a next victim. So let's keep exposing Tunisian Rats. I already reported one to immigration for marriage fraud since he marriage a nurse from Philadelphia and he already cheated on his poor wife. The problem is that hisbwife doesn't want to do anything. But I do. Remember RATS WILL ALWAYS BE

:thumbsup:Just saw this now very good post, obviously what they do is horrible but that was hilarious. I’ve definitely ran into these types in Egypt, they usually wear their hair in short (sewn in) dreads or tie it back in one of those springy headbands lol they look like proper bellends and yet somehow some of them do have sex appeal (and they know it!) :eek:

How do we fall for them so quickly, well my answer to that is god only knows but as others have said they do present themselves as a sort of knight in shining armour... you get caught up in this whole fantasy, you’re in a beautiful setting... and again they do have a certain sex appeal even when they’re ugly as f*ck LOL.
:eek:well let's see and let's break it down. Do they really have sex appeal. If we break it down it will be sex app-peal meaning is just an App that is just superficial because once it's peal there's Nothing.:D

Since you know so much about the bezness culture. Why not get the hotels to write a warning to tourists regarding love rats. Only travel agencies or hotels can warn but of course they will lose money and that is not good for Tunisia.
Amira it doesn’t work that way.
Many western women are not aware of “bezness”.
If hotels advertise this issue it won’t be good for their hotel !
The bottom is... don’t leave it to CHANCE... if a western woman travels alone to this place...

Be careful and just enjoy your holiday on your own.

Hello again,



Animators ! Oh yeah ... these sexy exotic-looking guys that you can find in pretty much every hotel across Tunisia, jumping, yelling, laughing, telling jokes, giving massages, dancing "BOOOMBAAAA" etc.. they're just practically ALL OVER THE PLACE .. They really attract your attention, they do !!

I'm 100% Sure that some of you have "Experiences" with Animators, if not most of you of course.


Today, I will be exposing Animator-Rats that are pretty much in every Hotel in the country and yes, I assume my responsibility when I say at least 99% of them are just professional Ripp-offs, Scammers and emotional black-mailers but again ! this doesn't mean that all animators are rats but most of them are lmfao

As I usual I will organize this thread according to bigger titles and topics, as I will be focusing first on Animators' terms/dictionary then I will talk about how a Rat Animator spends his day before I finish with Tips and tricks that Animators use aside of their "Job" in order to get money.

So let's go on with it !

LEARN HOW TO SPEAK ANIMATORS' LANGUAGE IN 2 MINUTES !


Animators have different sometimes more distinguishable terms and words they use to refer to certain elements and certain aspects of their jobs, once you're in a hotel with an animator's company, you'd automatically hear these words .. I'll just focus on the general terms, but next time I'll tackle the "Tunisian-Arabic" terms that indicate that you're dealing with a Rat.

1- " Arrivage "
You guessed right ! It means arrival, it's what they say every time they learn that new "potential victims" are arriving to the hotel.

2- "El Box"
It's just a wardrobe where you can find a lot of hair wigs, clothes, some cheap disguise clothes, make up, some beach toys yati yati yati etc...

3-"Contact"
This is a part of the job, Contact means the conversations they must have with tourists ( most importantly potential victims ) it's just when you're chilling on the beach and suddenly some weird over-tanned young man jumps on you trying to act funny and establish some conversation that's what they call "contact".

4- "Depart"
It's just when tourists are about to leave the hotel.

5- Accueil :
It's simply when they put a *DIY* "POSTER" about tonight's event or show and they just try as hard as they can to convince you that you must attend.

6- Boita
Simply the night-club.

Some of these terms, I admit, are less relevant such as Aqua Gym, "The Boomba" thing .. anyway, I will talk next time in depth about the most important and frequent terms and expressions that every Rat uses and explain them all.

HOW DOES A RAT-ANIMATOR SPEND HIS DAY ?


1- Animators usually get hotel rooms.
Since the Animator must be present around tourists from dawn till dusk and most likely after that too, they usually get empty hotel rooms offered by the hotel that is hiring them.

2- MORNINGS
When you're simply enjoying your holiday by the beach and trying as much as you can to spend some unforgettable times and good ones, The Animator becomes a part of your life .. especially when he smells that you're well-off or coming from a rich country etc...

3- THE ARRIVAGE
This is why I wanted to explain this word/term .. because it's significant ! As tourists, you may notice (or not) as soon as you're arriving to the hotel getting off the bus, some hotel animators would come to the lobby/reception to greet you and to introduce themselves as well.
You'd be like "owww how cute !" Well, not so much !

Why are they called animators? Why the word animator?

Why are they called animators? Why the word animator?
You can use that word in every sense actually. The normal explanation is they entertain the guests at the hotel resort by either putting up a show and try to evolve the hotel guests or entertain children with games. The rats explanation for animators is to bother women, follow the women, asking for gifts, money, sex. Or invite the women to go to a disco and drink themselves stupid (and invite their ratty friends) on the expense of a woman(she pays the drinks) . Lots of different meanings to the word animator
