Thomas Gottschalk is greeted with huge cheers by the audience

Entertainer legend Thomas Gottschalk has returned to the “Wetten dass ..?” Stage for the first time in ten years. There was no stopping the audience in the exhibition hall in Nuremberg on Saturday evening: they received the moderator with standing applause, huge cheers and “Oh, how is that beautiful” singing. “I’m really looking forward to the evening, and I’m taking my time too,” he said, referring to his previous overdraft times. Gottschalk moderated the ZDF cult show from 1987 to 1992 and from 1994 to 2011.

In a gold patterned jacket and with presenter Michelle Hunziker at his side, Gottschalk welcomed numerous superstars to the show sofa. Together they were excited about the first bet: the dog “Uno” was able to sort garbage properly into three tons.

The pregnant pop singer Helene Fischer performed a song from her new album “Rausch” and was cheered by the fans in the hall. “They are really all crazy about you,” said the entertainer of Fischer’s fans. She was moved and couldn’t wait to be back on stage, said the singer. There should be a big tour in 2023. She sees the affection of her audience as “an absolute gift”. The ABBA stars Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson celebrated their sensational comeback at “Wetten dass ..?”.

The revival of the ZDF show was eagerly awaited. Shortly before the show began, Gottschalk looked into the hall, joked with the audience and took a few selfies. “I’m 3G – vaccinated, tested and made up,” he said, and: “I promise you, I haven’t forgotten anything, but also learned nothing.”

Thomas Gottschalk and singer Helene Fischer talk to Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson from Abba during the anniversary show.

In any case, Gottschalk has not forgotten his quick wittedness. With casual sayings, he made the spectators laugh and took away the nervousness of the betting candidates a little. As usual, he liked to joke at his own expense and described himself as a “frail elderly gentleman”.

The anniversary show should be a one-time special. When asked whether Gottschalk could imagine moderating “Wetten dass ..?” More often, he had kept a low profile in advance.
