Günther Jauch indulges in an old memory in the new episode “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” but it’s not entirely fun.
Cologne – Gunther Jauch (65) He drops his mask as a sovereign contest master always! In the new episodeWho will be a millionaire?An old memory catches up with the director – that’s ’embarrassing’!
Upon seeing candidate Hendrik Scheufen (26), Jauch slips from his poker face smoothly.
“Well, when I just got up in the chair, I was really shocked,” the WWM icon admits. He wants to know if his candidate can think of why.
‘Not yet’ baffles the 26-year-old. Jauch helps him in jumps and leans on three fingers: “Student – in psychology – from Münster.”

The doorbell rings for his councilman: “Because of Leon?” “Yes! Leon Windscheid, who disowned the Million,” Gauch calls the audience to mind.
Windscheid, 33, not only snubbed the broker with a million euros in 2015, but also gave him a memory that Jauch still follows today.
On the show, the show director recalls his “embarrassing” event five years ago.
Windscheid lured him back to his hometown of Münster for the first time in 57 years, says Gauch. There the millionaire had put a party boat, the “MS Jauch”, into operation.
The name itself should take over the ceremonial christening of the ship – easier said than done. “Then I got a big champagne bottle and how many times did I have to put it on the box for it to break?” Josh is still terrified today.
The medium had to make five attempts before the glass finally wanted to smash the ship’s wall. The Baptist’s Absolute Horror Scenario: “That was embarrassing!”

“The TV was there, I think he’s still working on all the ‘oops, crashes’ programs – Gunther Gauch tries to name a great ship,” says the 65-year-old sarcastically.
There is also an old myth that it is bad luck if the bottle does not explode right away. “Better for the fifth time than not,” throws candidate Hendrik Chaufen.
“Say something, or I’d still be in Monster today,” Josh could now laugh at his gaffes. Watch the full episode “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” on Thursday at 8:15 pm RTL.
