While Thomas Gottschalk was hosting his last show, a former "Wetten, dass..?" moderator a few short ones.

Mainz – A few days ago, Thomas Gottschalk (73) presented the last "Wetten, dass..?" show of his career. This event was on everyone's lips and was widely reported. Frank Elstner, creator of the format and former presenter of the show, was also present at the farewell ceremony in Offenburg. At the same time, "TV Total" presenter Sebastian Pufpaff and ex-"Wetten, dass..?" showmaster Wolfgang Lippert had an exuberant TV evening.

Some viewers may not have even thought about the fact that there are other "Bets that..?" presenters than Thomas Gottschalk, who gave ZDF dream ratings one last time. But there was also Markus Lanz, who tried his luck on Germany's biggest Saturday night show from 2012 to 2014. And presumably even fewer viewers had Wolfgang Lippert, who hosted "Wetten, dass..?" from 1992 to 1993, on their screens.

In any case, Sebastian Pufpaff, presenter of TV total, invited Wolfgang "Lippi" Lippert to a cozy last "Wetten, dass..?" TV evening with cheese cubes, Mettigel and lots of alcohol. Before we started, there were chips and a first toast with a glass of wine: "Here's to a nice evening watching TV!" Then "Puffi" told his guest, who was dressed appropriately for the occasion: "We're playing 'Wetten, dass..?' -Bingo! We come up with terms and when they come, we have to have a short drink."

With Wolfgang Lippert's help, Sebastian Pufpaff immediately wrote down some terms on a flipchart and, of course, they diligently bet in front of the TV – with their own bets. "I'm already a bit sick!" said Wolfgang Lippert before the first peppermint liqueur on "Top, die Wette geht!" But this seemed to evaporate over the course of the evening when redeeming one's own bets such as singing after inhaling helium, sending embarrassing text messages to celebrity friends and clown-like make-up on Sebastian Pufpaff's face.

By the way, the "Wetten, dass..?" -Bingo diligently tipped at the corresponding catchphrases of Gottschalk on TV on the couch in front of it. "Do you still have a bottle?", Wolfgang Lippert once had to ask his host. And at the end of the boozy evening, Sebastian Pufpaff pretended to be the new presenter of "Wetten, dass..?" on his Instagram account after the last lost bet. Will it really continue with "Wetten, dass..?" That's what ZDF says. (cso) Sources
