The opponents have to fish the ducks of their respective colors from a pool (Rúrik Gíslason in red and Robin Gosens in blue). The difficulty here: The fishing rod may only be touched at the beginning. A cuff thus limits the grip.

8:42 p.m: The game turns out to be more difficult than expected. While Rúrik Gíslason can’t correctly assign right and left, Robin Gosens cheats. He steers with his feet, which is not allowed. After several warnings, he is deprived of a point.

In the end, Rúrik Gíslason wins the game and fills his score by one point.

8.20 a.m.: Ah yes, the good old days. To get in the mood for the “Beat the Star” duel between Rúrik Gíslason and Robin Gosens, ProSieben dug up another video from the “Beat the Raab” days on Instagram.

It shows: Stefan Raab in an electric vehicle race against a candidate. “These are usually stories that Raab likes very, very much, that he is good at,” moderator Frank Buschmann enthused at the time.

But then there was a bang. Stefan Raab loses control of his vehicle and crashes into the gang at full speed. The entertainer lies on the hall floor with a pained face, it seems as if his electric vehicle rolled over him once.
