Storyline

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 Oliver Heidelbach

14 August 2019 | by aarongnrSee all my reviews

Cause its absolutely amazing.

Great fun EVERY SINGLE TIME. Great contestans and Gottschalk is a godlike host. What made this show so amazing are the guests tho. Due to the prestige statis of the show they were able to get some pretty high-profile guests which was always alot of fun and cool to see.

All around one of my absolute favourite show when I was a kid. Sad it ended but VERY much looking forward to the special episode in 2020
