That’s what “Wetten, dass…?” is about.
“Wetten, dass..?” is one of the best-known and longest-running television programs in the German-speaking world. The show has been around for several decades and first aired in 1981.
Candidates present their skills live in front of an audience in a large room. The famous guests then bet on unusual skills. Does the betting proposal work or not? If the celebrity makes a mistake, she will usually have to perform an unpleasant task.
The skills are often unusual, funny, or spectacular. In 1981, for example, bodybuilder Hans Oßner exploded a hot water bottle. That same year, Rudolf Künzler and his team parked an 8.8-ton truck on four beer glasses.
It is not yet known what bets there will be at this year’s fair.
When is “Bet, that…?” aired?
The show ran for almost 34 years after its premiere in 1981 and was discontinued in 2014. Seven years later, in November 2021, the hit format returned with host Thomas Gottschalk for an annual edition.
Viewers will be able to watch the show on free-to-air television on November 25 at 8:15 p.m. on ZDF.

The moderation of “Wetten,dass..?”
The idea of “Wetten,dass..?” arose from Frank Elstner, the well-known teacher and inventor of the show, who later handed over moderation to Thomas Gottschalk.
Under Gottschalk’s leadership, the show became its trademark and is often referred to as “Europe’s biggest TV show.” Gottschalk hosted 151 editions of the show.
By the way: Michelle Hunziker hosted the show alongside him from October 2009 to 2012. However, this time she is not a co-host.
But in 2010 the tragic accident occurred that left all of Germany shaking: Candidate Samuel Koh He bets he can flip over moving cars five times in a row. Everything goes well twice, but then something happens that no one expected: he is hit by a car and seriously injured in the cervical spine.
A year after the 2011 accident, Thomas Gottschalk hosted the show for the last time, handing it over to colleague Markus Lanz before the show was temporarily suspended in 2014.
