He is an actor, director, producer, musician and now also a presenter: Matthias Schweighöfer (42) took the ProSieben quiz “Who is stealing the show?” for the first time. presented and the actual moderator Joko Winterscheidt (44) was thrown off course again and again.
The hour-long show, which was recorded in Berlin in the summer, was broadcast on television on Sunday evening. It could already be seen in advance on the paid streaming platform Joyn Plus.
Schweighöfer had won the final against Winterscheidt in the previous edition and was therefore allowed to moderate it. In several rounds of quizzes, the actual host, actor Florian David Fitz and comedian Hazel Brugger had to try to take the job back from Schweighöfer.
Duel between Winterscheidt and Schweighöfer
After a harmonious duet at the beginning of the show on the song "Shallow", it later became more and more a duel between the two friends Winterscheidt and Schweighöfer. In the game "Endure: Don't Laugh" he tried to make the candidates laugh with the help of Klaas Heufer-Umlauf and former soccer star Mario Basler - Winterscheidt could hardly remain serious.
After a guest appearance by singer Tim Bendzko, who looks very similar to Schweighöfer, the long-time friends faced off again in the final. When asked about the venue for next year's Olympic Games, Winterscheidt was betting that his opponent didn't know the answer ("If you have Paris, I'll shoot myself").
But to his horror, Schweighöfer knew the solution and can now present the award-winning format again. His opponent in the final, on the other hand, couldn't really believe the outcome and knelt on the studio floor, lost in thought.
