It was exciting until the last moment…
On the RTL show “Jauch gegen Welke” Günther Jauch (65) had to deal with a new opponent on Monday evening: “Heute Show” presenter Oliver Welke (56).
The jackpot included 50,000 euros for your own block of viewers. When it came to football in the last round, one left the field to the other – and in the end just barely got anything.
When it comes to knocking, the two don’t give each other anything. Welke teased Jauch, who was a few years older: “It may be my only chance that his long-term memory is not enough to remember all of this.” His rival countered: “The Welke should wither today.” After that, however, it looked at first not from. Although the quiz had been running for an hour, Jauch had only earned a meager point by then.
Host Oliver Pocher (44) sneered: “Next time we’ll play ‘Jauch against Burdecki’ so that you have a chance.”
But then the “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” moderator began catching up. Even his celebrity colleagues didn’t help Welke. Comedian Olaf Schubert (54), actor Matthias Matschke (53) and ZDF presenter Katrin Müller-Hohenstein (56) supported the challenger one after the other in the duels. Score before the grand finale: 25 to 11 for Günther Jauch.

The final went over three rounds. The individual subject areas were royals, “man or woman” and football. Welke and Jauch had to distribute their points on each without knowing what the other was betting on. Whoever won got the points credited. Points were deducted from those who lost. The latter also applied to the one who didn’t play if the other won. So Oliver Welke still had a good chance of winning the show.
In addition to knowledge, the gambler gene was also in demand. Pocher explained for each round: “I’ll ask you a maximum of ten questions. And you have to tell me how many of them you can answer correctly.” Whoever has more confidence plays the round. There were only two possible answers per question. Welke had to play for the Royals because he thought he was right three times. Jauch didn’t want to outbid that, instead he wished his opponent: “Good luck at this point.”
