Each show has several celebrities invited who have to bet on different contestant(s) achieving his/her/their goal of performing a stunt. If the celebrities fail to anticipate whether their stunt will succeed or not, they have to meet their stake. Usually one stunt takes place outside the studio. At the end of the show, the best stunt is being voted for by the audience. There is also an audience bet, a stunt which the audience does choose from a preselection, which is not prepared and must be organized by the host city within the time the show is running. If the stunt succeeds, the show's host has to meet his stake. Written by
Thomas Gottschalk is overrated as a host. The show drags on and on with almost continuous closeups of the blond angelic presenter. In the 70s there was a show called Dali Dali that lasted two hours. I think that the Germans have a predication for these awful 'Generation Game' type shows with participation, guest stars and of course intermissions with Europop music. There is a great deal of self advertisement by the 'stars' that come on board. After all this is the reason for their fame and how they find a public.
If you wish to vegetate slowly on a Friday night this is the way to go.
Sad, boring and cheap.
