In episode four of the current season of “Who’s Stealing the Show?” is the motto: Everyone wants Matthias Schweighöfer's job. The actor won the last edition of the show. On Sunday evening, presenter Joko Winterscheidt, actor Florian David Fitz, comedian Hazel Brugger and wildcard candidate Judith tried to steal the show.
The wildcard candidate from Norderstedt was the first to give up, followed by Hazel Brugger. Florian David Fitz then lost to Joko Winterscheidt in the semifinals. The moderator was once again in the final with Matthias Schweighöfer. In the end, the actor defended the show and will host the show again next week.
Matthias Schweighöfer had already provided a lot of entertainment in another show. In his last “Wetten,dass..?” edition on November 25th, Thomas Gottschalk made his guest Matthias Schweighöfer a relative of his later guest Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Before the ex-Bayern star took the stage in Offenburg with his wife Ana Ivanović, Gottschalk mistakenly referred to the actor, who had the trailer for his new film "Girl You Know It's True" with him, as Matthias Schweinsteiger.
Apparently still on stage of the ZDF broadcast, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matthias Schweighöfer recorded a humorous video together in response to Gottschalk's little faux pas, which both ZDF and Schweighöfer himself shared on Instagram. In the clip, Schweinsteiger and Schweighöfer first introduce themselves together as “Matthias Schweinsteiger”. “Matthias Schweinsteiger, Schweighöfer, married until the end of his life,” football champion Schweinsteiger then jokes, before actor Schweighöfer explains: “We are simply the S-C-H-Ws.”
