It’s the grand finale of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? The 3 million week” on Friday evening (January 6) and someone who wants to challenge his guessing luck again is RTL candidate Mike. He had already entertained the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” audience with his relaxed manner at the beginning of the week.
When it comes to the 100,000 euro question, the self-confident Mike suddenly breaks a sweat. A cool water might help, but that’s empty right now. So supplies are needed – but instead of water, Mike asks for a beer, which immediately triggers a discussion about the art of regional brewing.
“Who wants to be a millionaire?” Candidate orders beer
“My glass is empty, can I have a beer?” he asks the group and immediately announces what kind it should be. He would like a cool beer. Günther Jauch strongly doubts whether he can get it. After all, the filming of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” takes place in Cologne. Kölsch is traditionally drunk here.
While the RTL candidate can come to terms with this prospect, Günther Jauch admits that he cannot get anything out of this beer of all things. Pretty bitter, after all, the moderator should be in the cathedral city regularly because of his numerous RTL productions.
“Who wants to be a millionaire?”: Jauch causes a stir with a beer saying
When a show assistant comes to the guessing desk, he actually holds the said Kölsch in his hand. “Is that supposed to be a Pils?” Jauch asks skeptically at first, until he realizes what it is about. Then he announces that he can’t do anything with the taste of the beer and says: “In an emergency, the devil drinks Kölsch.”
This statement should not please the Cologne audience at all. The city is as closely linked to beer as the Eiffel Tower is to Paris. But Günther Jauch is not done handing it out yet. He himself would also like something high-percentage. But he immediately admits: “I would drink a beer, but not a Kölsch.”
Quite daring to make this statement in Cologne. At least he didn’t ask for a Düsseldorf contralto…
