On 18 August 2018, 20:15, the new show Denn sie wissen nicht, was passiert! Die Jauch-Gottschalk-Schöneberger-Show premieres on RTL Television. What’s special: the show gets under way without Barbara Schöneberger, Thomas Gottschalk or Günther Jauch knowing the role they’ll have to take. So spontaneity and improve talent are hot commodities!
The decision is made at the beginning of each show – announced by a “talking hat”. Barbara Schöneberger, Thomas Gottschalk and Günther Jauch each put it on, after which the hat decides who has to present the show and improvise – completely unprepared. In the premiere on Saturday, the hat goes for Günther Jauch as moderator. But Barbara Schöneberger and Thomas Gottschalk plunge into an adventure as well. The pair turn into candidates and are completely in the dark about what’s happening and which prominent opponents they’ll compete against.
The first show pits them against the fine-tuned crime scene investigator duo from Tatort from Münster: opponents Axel Prahl and Jan Josef Liefers. What tasks do they have to master? Who’ll get off to a flying start? Each team plays on behalf of a spectator candidate selected randomly by Barbara Schöneberger, Thomas Gottschalk and Günther Jauch shortly before the show. The team and spectator candidate who ends up the winner can look forward to more than 50,000 euros.
