Who wants to be a Millionaire Host?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like, if the host of “Who wants to be a Millionare?” (“Wer wird Millionär?”) was to change places a be on the hot seat himself?

Well, during a celebrity special in Germany that is exactly what happened. Host Günther Jauch changed places with his contestent, Horst Schlämmer.

You can watch it at ClipFish.de in 4 parts: 1 2 3 4 – the switch is in the 2nd part at around time index 06:00.

Another interesting scene is in part 3 around 02:40 when Horst (played by Hape Kerkeling, who speaks Spanish) notes that he could have answered the 32.000€ question himself – without a joker.

For this scene they were awarded the “Deutscher Fernsehpreis”.
