Cult singer Blümchen on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?": Günther Jauch surprised by candidate name

In the case of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?", some bizarre details have recently come to light in the conversations between Günther Jauch and the participants. On the one hand, there was Kerstin Jacob-Rauch, who suffered from a button phobia, and more recently Ingrid Redlefsen, who used to work in a Beate Uhse factory. In the current episode of the cult show, the presenter sits in front of Jasmin Wagner, whose name promptly tempts him to make an obvious comparison.

"When I heard that Jasmin Wagner was on our show today, I was hoping for Blümchen," says Günther Jauch, visibly irritated, alluding to the cult singer of the 90s. "Do you think Blümchen needs that?" replies Jasmin Wagner, "So not in a negative sense, but in a financial sense." The Hamburg native goes on to explain that although she is now much less likely to be confused with her celebrity namesake, she reveals that she and Blümchen both come from the same area and once even went to the same ENT doctor.
